Digital Art Tutorial 1

Make Your Mark

Simple Line Figure Drawing simple line figure continued

The category of digital art is huge – so big in fact that a tutorial that is not more specific doesn’t mean particularly much.

I have looked at other tutorials and have even written some. Like most things the only way to learn how to do it is by doing it. The best one can hope for from a tutorial might be tips about something you weren’t aware of – but even then you will have to do it to know it.

So lesson number 1 – is quite simple – use whatever computer painting program you want and start making your mark.

The figure drawing above was embarrassingly inspired by a pattern of hair on my shower stall – but inspiration is unnecessary – acceptance is essential.

The second image is a continuation – filling the empty space using a fill tool and a pattern that I could adapt for the purposes.
