Unique Gifts For Digital Artists
If you spend any amount of time with a digital artist who works on a desktop computer while they are creating their art, you will soon realize that space is one thing they could really do with having more of!
Often these digital artists have a number of computer displays on their desk as well as a bunch of other stuff and all of this makes it hard for them move the mouse easily.
This platform clips easily onto a desk and allows for an easier range of movement while using the mouse- a really innovative gift for a digital artist!
Even artists who create their work digitally, using tablets, can sometimes miss the feel of a good painting brush. This stylus pen, equipped with a replaceable brush end, will allow the digital artist in your life to get the best of both worlds!
They can mimic the feeling of painting on more traditional materials whilst still working on cool digital projects.
This stylus has a number of functions that are suitable for different kinds of artwork and, at under, $30 it is really good value considering its high quality! It also arrives packaged in a beautiful gift box.
These beautifully designed mouse’s make great gifts for digital artists, that’s for sure! Not only are they super responsive and easy to use but they have intricate patterns on them that are sure to brighten up any office/workspace.
Most digital artists a going to spend a whole load of time staring at their desk while they get inspiration, why not help to inspire them with this lovely mouse? It is a great size too that is suitable for gripping for extended periods of time.
It also has a helpful on/off switch to conserve the battery.
If you are not a digital artist or graphic designer, chances are the symbols on this keyboard will look like complete gibberish to you… For a digital artist who uses a laptop to create, though, this keyboard cover is a huge time saver.
Designed in attractive colors with very clear Photoshop shortcuts, this acts as a great reminder to digital artists while they work and allows them to achieve more with their time. Don’t forget to get the right keyboard to suit the right laptop.
Though other covers are available on Amazon, this particular one is suitable only for the MacBook Air 2018.
Another item that will enable a digital artist to produce work more quickly is this book on speed painting, written by experts in the craft.
It doesn’t attempt to rush the creative work of making digital art, like some kind of crazy art race, but instead provides useful techniques to enable artists to produce work efficiently .This would make a really thoughtful gift that many digital artists probably do not already own but will come to view as invaluable.
It is full of reference images and examples from industry professionals and is suitable for both artists new to speed painting and those who want to refine their skills.
It’s quite surprising how many digital artists there are around who are using boring looking iPad/tablet cases. Perhaps it is because they struggle to find pretty cases that are also functional and can stand up unassisted… Not anymore!
This amazing, Van Gogh inspired case is sure to impress any digital artist with both its practical versatility and its design. Even those who already have a number of cool cases will appreciate this gift as most digital artists feel that they can never have too many.
This model is suitable for the 5th and 6th generation sized iPad’s, but you can find other tablet/iPad sizes on Amazon.
If the digital artist that you are looking to buy for spends any time working on a tablet, they will definitely appreciate this gift.
When working on a tablet, artists often find that they end up smudging their work with their hand which, as you can imagine, is hugely frustrating. These gloves help that problem to be avoided whilst also reducing friction and allowing the artist’s hand to slide smoothly over the screen.
Most significantly, compared to other similar styles, these gloves have the benefit of being resistant to dirt so don’t need to be frequently cleaned.
If you are looking for a gift for a digital artist that is a little more light-hearted and fun, these painting patterned socks are sure to do the job!
With designs that are based on famous paintings, these socks almost take on the look of being pixelated which is quite comical, though they still resemble the original works surprisingly strongly. Any digital artist would definitely appreciate these, and they are also super comfortable and soft.
This particular link is for women, but men’s sizing is also available. You can never go wrong with giving socks as a gift!
Though this might initially look like a slightly less exciting gift option to the others on the list, trust me when I say that this will be treasured by any digital artist!
Digital paintings often take up a lot of space on a computer and this is the perfect solution to that problem. This hard drive, with 1 terabyte of space on it, will allow digital artists to create to their heart’s content without fear of losing any of their work or running out of space.
It’s the most expensive option on our list, at just under $50, but there is no doubt that it would be highly appreciated!
