I have been using the ipad applications such as Brushes etc. for my attempts at creating digital art.
I am interested in your Photoshop colouring. Can I ask whether I should buy Photoshop to take your classes and precisely which Photoshop I should buy?
Thanks for your help.
Hi Judith, I think starting with the brushes application is a terrific place to begin. Although photoshop is an awesome tool, The brushes app should give you almost everything that you need as well. The main focus right now should be on the art fundamentals called and not the software. So try brushes right now, and see if that future purposes. If not give paint.net a try, It is free. And if you like that, then You can consider photoshop after that.
I would love to learn to draw but I don’t have photoshop, is there any other program you can use?
I hope you can help
I’ve been having great results using GIMP. Works on both Mac and PC, and it’s totally free. It took a little bit to get up and working with it, but once I was familiar with the tools, it can do pretty much everything that Photoshop can when it comes to painting.
Here’s a lesson we did covering how to do painting in Gimp: How to Paint a Zombie with Gimp
OK, sorry, but I’m not PS savvy enough to “add a gradient layer pink to white” ??? is there another video to watch where that is explained with more than one sentence? TIA
You will need to make a new layer, and then use the gradient tool. Before you use the gradient you need to set your colors – one to pink and one to white and then when you use your gradient tool it will naturally blend between the two colors. Cheers! Mitch
I watched this video and then attempted to do the same steps in Photoshop Elements, however its quite a bit different. Would you be able to tell me how to do the same beginning steps (The masking ect.) in Elements?
It’s great to see that you are working on skills you picked up from this series. To adapt to individual programs would be quite difficult though as there are so many different applications to translate into. The reason Photoshop was used was because it is an industry standard as well as being the most widely used graphics software. I will certainly look at expanding into other applications in the future though. Thank you for the suggestion. I am happy to see that you learned so much already.
