Concerning the use of features such as the Marquee tools (rectangular, elliptical, single row and single column) to create a basic geometric shape I can somewhat understand that sentiment. The same goes for using the canned shapes and certain brushes like the leaf and the hard star shaped brushes.
I do however have some concerns as to why some of the brushes approved for use are considered alright while other brushes inherent to Photoshop are not. (Example of a link to one set of brushes that are OK for use: http://inobscuro.com/brushes/view/47/ ) Why are these acceptable and the ones I have highlighted in red (see attachment) are not? Another question I have is, why we can not use the brush controls such as “color dynamics,” “scattering” and “texture?” These all come in handy for erasing issues, texturing and shading.
As for the use of filters I suppose I can go along with that (to an extent) I do not see why things like blur, noise, fiber and clouds cannot be used and or expounded upon. In the same token, why is it alright to be able to use the transform tools? After all a skilled person should not have to rely on such devices to portray proper perspective in a drawing, whether it is the old fashioned way, pencil and paper, or digital pen and canvass.
All in all it seems to me the main goal of a so called “Digital Drawing” in the digital draw contests, is that it should not be a “Constructed” piece of work, very rarely is the contest theme draw a simple box, circle or basic geometry.
P.S the circles drawn in my attachment are stroked paths with a hard round brush…. Relax Bob
