Miku oil doodle

Quick oil of Miku Hatsune, the vocaloid (a singing software program,) that I did to relax in the midst of two big paintings I've got to finish by the end of the month and some very stressful ink-drawing speculation work.

A thing about traditional art is, to represent it on the internet, you have to convert it into a digital file. With digital art, the file contains everything that you put into the art piece, every color, every mark. But the digital representations of traditional art pieces can never get everything. The colors that monitors can show are limited, and the devices used to convert images into files break things down. As an example, the picture above I converted using my digital camera, the below using my scanner.

Neither captures the whole range of color. But we can see, each device has its prejudices. Interesting, no?
