Nice lesson for beginner
I'd fiddled with Photoshop for drawing but this was my first attempt at really learning digital painting and it was SUUUPER helpful. It's concise, easy to understand, and has definitely left me feeling more knowledgeable and competent than I was when I started. 100% recommend.
Thank you! Very interesting!
