Digital Art Question

I understand that the Otakuthon does accept digital artworks for art gallery showing every year on condition that limitede edition prints be made for sale. However, there are some artists who usually do digital art by drawing the outline on paper first and then later scan the outline itself so as to color the image on a software program (like GIMP, Adobe Photoshop, and Paint) for finalization. What I'm trying to ask is if artwork done by such process can be accepted as "original digital artwork" according to submission standards or if such a type of digital work is likely to be disqualified by gallery staff as the software is coloring the scan of the rough work itself (considering art gallery submission standards against scans of traditional pieces).

Hi yamato1974!

No worries :)
You can do digital art by drawing the outline on paper first and then later scan it for the final touches on computer. A lot of artists do that :wink:
As long as you're creating your own art, it's ok to submit your art pieces to the Art Gallery.
As a reference, the Art Gallery page on our website states the following:
Digital media is acceptable with the condition that:
The work must not be a scan of a finalized traditional piece.
The prints must be of high quality and made as a limited edition, numbered and signed by the artist.

You can expose your creations at the Art Gallery to let the attendees enjoy them or it's also possible to sell the your work as long as the rules are respected.
