So you want to become a digital artist? Whether you have a good grasp on traditional drawing techniques or are you have zero skill and want to jump straight into digital painting, the purpose of this guide is to de-mystify digital art for you to make it as easy as possible to start.

And I'm not about to start again, but sometimes I get hit by big realizations, and this is one of those times. Now it has been what... 4 years, since I joined this site, almost 5, and at the time I joined it had already been  4-5 years already where I had been dealing with this personal issue of just
