Dash of Inspiration: Digital Painting, Part 1

A Dash of Inspiration, A Cup of Creativity by Doreen

Digital Painting, Part 1

Many artists find themselves wanting to move towards digital painting, even if only to add finishing touches to a scanned work of art. I stumbled on a “Painting in Photoshop with a Tablet” tutorial and it inspired me for a 2-part series on Digital Painting. I rarely paint in Photoshop since I also have Corel Painter 11 and it communicates beautifully with CS-5, I paint in Corel. Regardless of the program you choose, starting out with a tablet can be a frustrating learning curve. Here’s hoping these tutorials help you choose the right tablet for you and may even inspire those who didn’t think they would benefit to consider using one.
