The icon painting style created to depict the saints and Christ is aimed at displaying a different reality. Therefore, in the icon, the portrait resemblance of a saint to a person who actually lived once is not in principle, since it reflects a transformed person who is in the upper world.

Digital painting is a fine line of opposites, combining a bright splash of colors with high technology. This is an amazing world of art, where each picture created is so multifaceted that it is sometimes difficult to understand and appreciate it.
