The art here lies within the invention of the mathematical formulation themselves and the best way the applications are written to benefit from the show capabilities of the hardware. The artwork additionally lies within the creative intentions and subsequent selections of the artist/mathematician.
I had low confidence about art and illustration normally after being advised it was “pie within the sky” by “advisors” at my local job center. My family was not very supportive till much later on during the art course. In brief my motivation was missing. What I can say from personal expertise is do attempt completely different software at times. I used to solely use Corel Painter for a long time, but after I tried Photoshop and other programs after my art course completed (end of 2014) I realized what I had been missing.
