Lighting artist(Lighter) virtually lights up the scene to get realistic results matching the original shot or light an entire CG shot.

Lighter needs a strong understanding of light direction, intensity, and shading.

Proper lighting techniques are essential in creating stylized and natural-looking shots that look much closer to real life as digital sensors and film don’t react as well to light as our eyes do. This is why Lighting scenes always seem to be packed with many different light sources that serve different purposes.

Digital artists are basically artists who use electronics as their primary medium, rather than, say the paint on canvas. A digital artist would use a drawing tablet plugged into a PC. The most common are Wacom products, which are similar to drawing on paper with a pencil. We personally use a Cintiq which allows you to draw directly on the screen. A mouse alone to draw/paint, would be difficult and stifling, but it’s not impossible. An art program is necessary, there are numerous out there, but Photoshop and Painter are what professional digital artists typically use. Tablets and iPads are a decent starting device if you have one, but they’re highly limited in both capabilities and speed. Of course, using electronics to create art won’t suddenly make anyone a better artist without practice and learning fundamentals, but it can make the process more liberating and flexible. Most professional concept artists and illustrators today are digital artists.

The answer seems to vary from person to person. But the most important and correct answer is the obvious one. Which is, you need to understand how light interacts with our surroundings, material, and textures. What color it gives, takes with it, reflects and how far it goes depending on the light type. So, in general, photography will help teach a lot of this. And it will help teach the artistic eye to see and spot the unique details of light, contrast, shadow and such. It is also important to know composition, textures, materials, PBR and so on.

Art created or modified using a computer or other digital medium. Therefore, if digital art is art created with the use of a computer, then we can assume that the digital artist is the one doing the drawing. A digital artist is simply an artist who uses a different medium, then, let’s say paper and pen. We use a tablet and computer and take the pen and put it to my screen and draw. Dragons, walking chairs, people, hair, all these things come from our imagination and we use the tablet to draw them. A digital artist isn’t a copycat, and a digital artist isn’t ‘a fake artist. The same way a tattoo artist uses ink and skin, a digital artist uses a tablet and computer. A digital artist is an artist who often uses a computer as the medium to draw or paint, the same way a traditional artist would.
