I'm working on this thing. I haven't been able to paint with a computer in a while. 5 years, actually. I'm really excited to get back into it. If you guys have any advice or critiques, please, let me know!
Yes, you can't paint for shit.
You should watch tutorials of people painting, if you have spare 15 bucks right now go to gumroad and get the zedig tutorial and both of dave rapozas tutorials.
Watch them, take notes, think about what they're doing and why, and THEN try to paint and post your progress here.
