I'm decently shit at hand-drawing. I'm fairly creative and I really want to make pretty things. Primarily game art/UI. I want to purchase the $20/month student plan from Adobe and use Illustrator to make cool art. I have a cracked photoshop but I'd scrap it. So all that in mind, is there any place I could get started learning good design principles, the ins and outs of the software? I don't want to make this a full time thing but a hobby. Maybe a consistent one if I can stick with it

Not going to spoonfeed you but these are good places to start with UX/UI. The last two are from GDC so it's more specific to videogames.

Anyone got good torrents for PS and AI for Mac?
some new versions?

Internet is full of fake pages that seem to promote some crap instead of real thing.

Get Affinity Designer instead. Has one-time payment of 50€ and has functionality of Ai + some raster functions.
