Needs to Learn the Ways of the Digital Artist

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 2, 2012, 8:12 PM



I'm very fascinated by all the wonderful digital works of art that I'm seeing all over the Internet, and would like to do some of my own as well. I regularly create works of art using traditional ways, but would like to start on some digital pieces.

Does anyone know of good tutorials that they can recommend to beginning digital artists with an advanced traditional art background that they can recommend to me? Better yet, can anyone teach me the ways of the digital artist personally? I may be experienced with traditional art and computers, but I have zero experience creating digital works of art, but would most definitely love to learn how! (As you can probably tell, I'm an old-school artist, but am willing and able to learn some new tricks!) I would be honored by whoever is willing to teach me how to create digital works of art! I have the tools (Adobe Master Collection CS5.5), but I need to know how to utilize them and actually make something on the computer instead of always with a pencil/brush/charcoal/pastels/other traditional media!

I hope someone can lend me a hand and open up another door in my world of artistry! Thanks in advance to all willing to give me some guidance! :D
