Creation Research in Digital Painting


The research purpose of this paper is to conduct digital learning through digital painting in order to enhance undergraduate students’ digital painting skills, art appreciation, and creative ability. The study subjects are university students. In the digital painting courses, we will mainly focus on the images of animation characters. The research methods will make it possible for students to operate the digital software and hardware practically, to learn the composition of the painting and the design of the color. Furthermore, students will interact with others and join a discussion; at the same time, teachers will help them to record their learning process. And at the end of the course, all their works will be collected and compiled into a personal portfolio. Students can learn how to operate the digital painting software based on the original animated images. After they are proficient in it, teachers encourage students to create scripts of animation stories and animation characters and also improve their painting skills, camera movement skills, and composition design. After the creations are done, students can upload their works on a digital platform that everyone can appreciate and observe. The research results of this paper summarize three conclusions. First, digital painting can boost students' understanding and operation of digital painting software. Second, digital painting can also allow students to have a creative imagination. Third, digital painting provides opportunities for students to observe and exchange ideas on online platforms.
