And it still blows my mind whenever someone compliments my art thank you soo much!!!
As far as tips go, I try to treat it like I do traditional drawing. My general process is under sketching, basic lines, flat color, then render color. It helps when you have a decent pen tablet too, I don’t think that I could do digital art without any pressure sensitivity. Any I advice I can give should be taken lightly as no two artists draw alike, so what I usually do won’t always work for everyone.
Generally the most important things you could ever get familiar with, in any drawing program (though I use photoshop), is brushes and layers.
With brushes, you have to try out a bunch of them. I personally go back to the same brush, this one:
I use that brush for my under sketching, color filling, and my rendering. Having both shape dynamics and the transfer (pen pressure being selected for both opacity and flow) is tremendously useful. One should never limit themselves to just one brush though, so try a bunch out to see which ones suit your drawing style the best.
Layers are also super important, and one thing you should spend a lot of time fiddling with. I use a ton of layers I swear, the manual drawing of Carlos was nearly 50 layers big. I especially like using the layer styles, to do neat color effects, and the opacity a lot.
Last and most important bit of advice is never be afraid to use tutorials. I have a massive reference folder for all of my old favorite digital art tutorials. I don’t even use most of the techniques I learned from them, but each one will teach you something different about using digital art, which will help build your overall skill each time.
(wow this got really long really quickly sorry bout that)
