Digital Artist
DIGITAL ART is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as an essential part of the creative or presentation process. Since the 1970s, various names have been used to describe the process including computer art and multimedia art , and digital art is itself placed under the larger umbrella term new media art . After some initial resistance, the impact of digital technology has transformed activities such as painting , drawing , sculpture and music/sound art , while new forms, such as net art , digital installation art , and virtual reality , have become recognized artistic practices. More generally the term digital artist is used to describe an artist who makes use of digital technologies in the production of art. In an expanded sense, "digital art" is contemporary art that uses the methods of mass production or digital media

Vector Graphics
VECTOR GRAPHICS is the use of polygons to represent images in computer graphics . Vector graphics
Vector graphics
are based on vectors, which lead through locations called control points or nodes. Each of these points has a definite position on the x- and y-axes of the work plane and determines the direction of the path; further, each path may be assigned various attributes, including such values as stroke color, shape, curve, thickness, and fill.

Runtime Environment
A RUNTIME SYSTEM, also called RUN-TIME SYSTEM, primarily implements portions of an execution model . This is in contrast to the runtime lifecycle phase of a program, during which the runtime system is in operation. Most languages have some form of runtime system, which implements control over the order in which work that was specified in terms of the language gets performed. Over the years, the meaning of the term 'runtime system' has been expanded to include nearly any behaviors that are dynamically determined during execution. CONTENTS * 1 Overview * 2 Examples * 3 Advanced features * 4 History * 5 See also * 6 References OVERVIEWEvery programming language specifies an execution model, and many implement at least part of that model in a runtime system. One, debatable, way to define a runtime system is that any behavior that is not directly the work of a program is runtime system behavior

Programming Language
A PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE is a formal language that specifies a set of instructions that can be used to produce various kinds of output . Programming languages generally consist of instructions for a computer . Programming languages can be used to create programs that implement specific algorithms . The earliest known programmable machine preceded the invention of the digital computer and is the automatic flute player described in the 9th century by the brothers Musa in Baghdad
Baghdad
, "during the Islamic Golden Age ". From the early 1800s, "programs" were used to direct the behavior of machines such as Jacquard looms and player pianos . Thousands of different programming languages have been created, mainly in the computer field, and many more still are being created every year

Raster Graphics
In computer graphics , a RASTER GRAPHICS or BITMAP image is a dot matrix data structure , representing a generally rectangular grid of pixels , or points of color , viewable via a monitor , paper , or other display medium. Raster images are stored in image files with varying formats. A bitmap , a single-bit raster, corresponds bit -for-bit with an image displayed on a screen, generally in the same format used for storage in the display's video memory, or maybe as a device-independent bitmap . A raster is technically characterized by the width and height of the image in pixels and by the number of bits per pixel (or color depth , which determines the number of colors it can represent). The printing and prepress industries know raster graphics as CONTONES (from "continuous tones "). The opposite to contones is "line work" , usually implemented as vector graphics in digital systems

Computer Game
PC GAMES, also known as COMPUTER GAMES or PERSONAL COMPUTER GAMES, are video games played on a personal computer rather than a dedicated video game console or arcade machine . Their defining characteristics include a more diverse and user determined gaming hardware and software, and a generally greater capacity in input, processing, and video output. Home computer

games became popular following the video game crash of 1983 leading to the era of the "bedroom coder". In the 1990s, PC games lost mass-market traction to console games before enjoying a resurgence in the mid-2000s through digital distribution . Newzoo, reports that the PC gaming sector is the third largest (and estimated in decline), with the consoles second largest, and across all platforms as of 2016, 2.2 billion gamers generate US$101.1 billion in revenue (i.e

Console Game
A CONSOLE GAME is a form of interactive multimedia used for entertainment. The game consists of manipulable images (and usually sounds) generated by a video game console and displayed on a television or similar audio-video system. The game itself is usually controlled and manipulated using a handheld device connected to the console, called a controller . The controller generally contains a number of buttons and directional controls, (such as analogue joysticks ), each of which has been assigned a purpose for interacting with and controlling the images on the screen. The display, speakers, console, and controls of a console can also be incorporated into one small object known as a handheld game . Modern game multimedia usually comes in the form of an disc , which can be inserted into the game console. Recent advances have allowed games and game demos to be downloaded directly to the console via the Internet

Mobile Application
A MOBILE APP is a computer program designed to run on a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet computer . Mobile apps often stand in contrast to desktop applications that run on desktop computers , and with web applications which run in mobile web browsers rather than directly on the mobile device. The term "app" is a shortening of the term "software application". It has become very popular, and in 2010 was listed as " Word of the Year " by the American Dialect Society . In 2009, technology columnist David Pogue said that newer smartphones could be nicknamed "app phones" to distinguish them from earlier less-sophisticated smartphones.
