What is the difference between a digital artist and a graphic designer?

Digital artist will most likely carry out their project digitally.(Some digital artist may do some rough sketches on a paper and then scan them to start designing digitally ) Digital art can be purely computer-generated.Digital artist don’t need any stock images to start designing.Most of the digital artist’s work from scratch… From Sketching – Digital painting  till adding final effects

The graphic designer assembles different images together to  create some visual effects.A graphic designer creates the graphics primarily for published, printed or electronic media, such as brochures (sometimes) and advertising. They are also sometimes responsible for typesetting, illustration, user interfaces, web design,logo design. A core responsibility of the designer’s job is to present information in a way that is both accessible and memorable.Some graphic designers are also Photographers they photograph some model or place and try to blend them to create a different image.They also work as a printer and will go out and print what they have designed(This proves that Graphic designers are not  totally involved digitally but also involved  physically)
