What do you get when you cross a computer programmer with an artist?

COMPUTER PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE FOR ARTISTS.....AND OTHER CREATIVE THINKERS
What do you get when you cross a computer programmer with an artist?
A Computist?
No, that's not a real word...not yet anyway.
With the availability of computers, artists have taken to making and enhancing their artwork on the computer screen.
I have done this myself.
Digital Artwork
Digital Artwork. I drew this picture on the computer using my mouse. It is 2013's Water Snake and Snail....I found it tricky, with the mouse instead of a pencil. But, I'm sure with some practise I could get better.
Blue Moon over the Ruby's.
As I continued I learned to use some of the tools digital art offers.
Make Three Wishes, is one of my favorite digital art pieces I've done.
Processing (at www.processing.org ) is a programming language specific for the communities using electronic art. Processing was originally used to be a digital sketchbook, it quickly morphed into a tool capable of producing artwork and designs at a more professional quality.
There are lots of free downloads for artist to create in digital art.
Have fun with this, I love the instant visual satisfaction.
Question for today?
Do you think digital art can be put into the category of FINE ART?
Be Inspired,
