Hi ConceptArt, and all of its members.
EDIT: I discovered Gn. Workshop, and I'm wondering if I should get Christian Lorenz Introduction to digital painting in photoshop - is it a good instructional DVD for beginners, or do you have to be really good beforehand?
Since I don't really know where to start, I'll just go for it and see where it leads.
I'm sitting here at my computer with a tablet and really want to get better at drawing - or painting, more accurately. I'm thoroughly interested in it, and have been wondering for a long time how exactly one should become better, or even start doing it correctly.
I have been looking at some really talented painters, and can honestly say that I've wished I were that good - but I'm kinda realistic, and therefore I've always been satisfied with the thought of getting better.
My current experience is only a lot of scribbling at school and often sitting down and trying to do something basic, like drawing a tree and stuff with my pencil. Problem is I don't want to do that. Now here's when I come to some sort of point.
I've only done outlines of things (on paper) when I've been drawing.
I want to do digital paintings instead.
No comic-style stuff, but using paint (digitally).
So I've been trying to start off a bit, making seemingly easy stuff that I can outline without problem. Like an apple.
I can honestly say it looked more than terrible, so I made another one. That one also came out like a three year old having fun with crayons.
So how should I begin? I know I should start making basic stuff, like apples and shoes and so on, but how? Should I have certain brush sets or should I.. just how should I get better?
I'm afraid that if I practice all wrong, I'll get better at doing bad stuff.
Could someone give me a clue or perhaps a thousand? I'd be very thankful.
