Dot-Color-Bubble [Digital Art]

in art •  5 months ago

Dot-Color-Bubble, Digital Art made with ArtRage (2018)

Viewer Discretion Advised

As an artist I often question myself and (the quality of) my art. I always want to give you something to think about, put a smile on your face, or even make this world a more colorful place.

Although I'd like to let the art speak for itself, I'm aware, that this is usually not enough - I also need to tell you about my thoughts and intentions, the tools I used to create the artwork and give it a (more or less) meaningful title.

Dot, Color and Bubble

The title is a reference to the dot-com bubble, because I like to refer to tech-related topics in my digital-art series. In the earlier stage of the work below, you can see all those colorful dots and bubbles, that I used to create the piece.

You may notice, that I often go for an analog look in my digital works. I especially like the randomness of all those splashes. On the other hand, I also like to experiment with glitchy image manipulations like in the piece below (which is still available for sale).

I've also put the "Dot-Color-Bubble" piece on opensea, so you're abel to get this, too.

Gif and Take

At the end I want to show you an animated "making-of" gif of the process. If you're on MacOS, I can recommend the app PicGif, which I use for creating these gifs.


Do like my digital art or do you prefer my analog pieces? Would you consider buying a digital artwork? Why (not)?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

And for sure this is reflecting as deep imaginative art and this art holds the colourful and eye-catching effect.

Keep up your amazing art and hope that your art will going to spread more positiveness essence and beautiful effect.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂


Thanks for your kind words about my art. I agree, that art has the power to impact society. May it be by spreading positive vibrations or by mirroring the wrongdoings and problems.

Have a great day, too!


Welcome and thank you so much. 🙂

I love that art works express things for everyone.
This is a table of happiness. it actually expresses such complex feelings of how simple the textures are. I am not an artist. but sometimes I do pictures to comfort myself. And I always think I understand from the beautiful picture. Congratulations. I loved it very much


Thanks for your kind feedback :-) "A table of happiness" is a nice description. I'm not sure, if happiness is a complex or simple feeling, but I certainly know, that the coloring has a huge impact when it comes to creating such feelings.

Imagine a subscription service for a digital picture frame, and digital art from artists of your choice could be seen in rotation -- maybe even 3D.

But I guess truth be told I prefer old school non-digital. Have you ever heard of this artist?


Yes, a digital art subscription could work quite well, when the content changes regularly (maybe every morning like a calendar) and if the art kind of exclusive. Personally I would even like to let it show some animated art gifs.

I'm just thinking about ways to combine physical art with digital crypto-art. Maybe one could send a physical card containing a special code, which proofs the ownership and enables the display on these kind of picture frames (or even enable high resolution printing in special shops).

I didn't have heard about Glenn Brown before, but his work reminds me of some of your photo-manipulations. Great find, thanks for sharing ;-)

I love this art. It's simple and unique


Thanks for letting me know. I'm glad, you're liking it ;-)

First I like the title and your art work is also attractive 🤩
I want to know that can I use picgif app for make anytype of gif?


Thanks for your feedback ;-) You can use PicGif to create gifs from single frames or video. There are several options to adjust framerate, dimensions and so on. It works perfect for me.


Okay! Thanks 😊
