Learning to Paint Digitally, Edition 1
Welcome to the new news article series, Learning to Paint Digitally.  Since even before I joined the AR Team I have been receiving notes, emails, etc. from fellow deviants asking me how to get started with digital painting and/or mixed media.  So, along with my knowledge, and the help of tutorials and resources I hope to bring something truly valuable to those wishing to learn more about painting digitally within Photoshop.
I can't say how many articles will be included in this series, only that each one will be unique and should you wish to participate even more, and take it one step further there will be practice materials suggested at the end of the article, ideally I would love to see the results uploaded so that I can display them and we can see how people are improving and coming along with the help of these "lessons."
The Plan:  This series is not only to give beginners a starting point, but also to help even seasoned painters with tri

How to make your uploads Stronger
How to make your uploads Stronger
This is a guide to making your uploads more individual and taken more seriously.
Not a absolute answer guide, just some suggestions.
* Try not to upload 10 images in a row, make sure you only upload 1-2 each day.
People need time to look through their center and if you upload to much, they are most likely to jump over a few of them.
The other thing is that it might seem to people that you just snapshot and upload right away, even though you might used a lot of time on it.
Image Title:
*What title should i give my image? Make sure you give a title you think suits the image, a image with a strong title makes the artwork
itself better and change the way people see the theme and concept.
My suggestion is that you think about the feeling you had when you worked on the image, or the feeling you want the image to show.
Let`s say you worked on a painting that reminded you about your childhood. You there have many titles; Childhood

Love And Honor
The city of Khal seemed to have a life of its own as people traveled its streets and shops providing its very life blood. The sun was high and it warmed Cindron's skin. Looking about Cindron couldn't even say how he ended up here or exactly when he arrived. It didn't matter though, it was the first time in years he had allowed himself time away from all things. To just be and he suspected that in itself was how he ended up here.
Cindron watched as a large galleon carefully maneuvered about the harbor while a not-so-skilled helmsman in a smaller sloop nearly struck it bow to stern. Cin grinned as he walked to a vender selling food; there was little doubt in his mind who would have lost that encounter. He handed a silver and a few copper over and walked towards and then through the bank, absentmindedly chewing on the chunk of meat on a stick and carrying a small caraf of water. People were everywhere and all in a hurry, making purchases with the broker, placing/withdrawing ite
