This is an Art that is very under appreciated by some, because they think that because it done with a computer, it is somehow easy and can be done in a very short time span with minimum effort.  To get a realistic finish, like artist Bert Monroy does, it takes a combination of all the skills that make a painting, drawing or sculpture, beautiful in the real world.  A lot of qualities come into play like, attention to detail, lighting, compositions shadows colour blending, light and dark, to make things look old, shiny, reflective, transparent.  The test is, looking at an image and thinking that you are looking at a photograph.  Monroy teaches his techniques in short videos that you can access once you become a member.  In the article we will include some of the statistics that accompany these Art pieces, like, how long they took to make, how big they are etc.  We are sorry, but this was the only size we could get these Digital Paintings, it doesn't do them justice...

All the images that we are going to show in this article come under the following parameters set out by Monroy “All digital paintings in this section were created entirely in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop without the use of scans.”

Times Square:
• The image size is 60 inches by 300 inches.
• The flattened file weighs in at 6.52 Gigabytes.
• It took four years to create.
• The painting is comprised of almost fifteen thousand individual Photoshop & Illustrator files.
• Taking a cumulative total of all the files, the overall image contains over 700,000 layers.

• The flattened file weighs in at 1.7 Gigabytes.
• It took eleven months (close to 2,000 hours) to create.
• The painting is comprised of close to fifty individual Photoshop files.
• Taking a cumulative total of all the files, the overall image contains over 15,000 layers.
• Over 500 alpha channels were used for various effects.
• Over 250,000 paths make up the multitude of shapes throughout the scene.
