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

Hi All...

I have started wondering about how I should use all the art books, training movies and similar I have purchased in the recent years.

For some reason I have gained a VERY bad habit of collecting all kinds of resources, but I don't really use 'em. I like to buy stuff, love to flick trough books and watch an awesome Gnomon DVD from time to time.

I have collected 1000's of other assets - brushes, reference images, pdf tutorials, online bookmarks. These are organized in every way possible including tags, folders etc. But again the joy right now is collecting and not using the materials.

So I am really just curious how you guys and girls are using your creative resources.

Do you read the books several times?

Do you try to test all exercises?

Do you sketch like a maniac the minute you see some wise words in terms of art creation?


Oh and I hope you all enjoy the summer :)

Hey! You're art is amazing! :D

I'd just like to let you know that a website has been stealing Deviant Artist's work and compositions and posting them on their site. They're not exactly stealing, they're referring back to people and crediting. However, they have done this without permission. I'd just like to tell you that I've found your work on this site: [link] and if you would like for them to take off your work from that website, please visit my Journal for the e-mail

Thank you for your time!
