Thanks mate :3

I have a Wacom Intuos manga and want to get started in digital painting. I've seen you do nice things and I wonder if you have any tutorial to get started.

thank you.

Also forgot to mention thumbnailing. Basically making a couple examples to see what you like. Thumbnails should be quick, just get the right scene, value, and shape right. Although there is added details, its not something you should dwell on since it is only for you to have a idea in your head. www.deviantart.com/art/HOW-TO-… This is explains it very well

Sadly I don't digital paint. Always wanted to. It really depends on what you wish to make. For example, if you want to do people from time to time, might have to learn some anatomy and perspective. I obviously don't have to tell you about basic art concepts since you get the idea of value and stuff like that. For people drawing, i've been recommended reading Andrew Loomis. You can get his books here www.alexhays.com/loomis/ . As for landscape, try using multiple references and maybe create a very quick manipulation of objects, no need to make them blend since it will also serve as reference. When I watch on twitch, people usually start at line work and fill it in with black to white values. After that is all the coloring and adjustments. Not sure if this was helpful since obviously I have never painted. You can ask some people here www.twitch.tv/directory/game/C… since its real time, you can ask questions about work
