I think every software has its limitations, no doubt about it. Adobe Photoshop is the most commonly used program. There are many other options available in free and paid software.
Is there such thing as a ‘digital painting’ tutorial for beginners, which you’ve been using as an introduction?
There is no such thing as an ‘expert’ painting tutorial. You need to know what you are doing, how do you accomplish it and the process of what you are doing. A lot of people take things as ‘how to’ at first in art classes or online tutorials. These are usually not very informative. Your best way to start getting good at it is to learn what you are trying to achieve on a very basic level using the software you are using on a regular basis. This applies to any type of painting, even just creating a single photograph.
For every painting, there are a lot of different processes that need to be accomplished in succession to finish the job. There may be an easy way to do it but it may not look as good as some of the more complex compositions that may require a whole series of different processes. There are times when learning and practicing a particular technique is just as important as learning and practicing that particular painting technique. There are times that you can just practice a technique and get results immediately. There are other times. For example, if you create a portrait of a person in the moment, you can learn that from studying how they move, how they stand, and how they interact with their environment. This creates momentum that becomes the foundation of everything else you can draw. However, there are times when you need to practice with a finished work, even if just an individual painting. For example, if you are doing a portrait, if there is an emotion that is holding a person back from showing their true self, then you can really hone in on the process of creating that emotion rather than just focusing on the final outcome.
You have written a book called Learn to Paint With Adobe Photoshop CS6. Which part of the guide is your favorite and/or did it interest you in the beginning?
The biggest question I get asked by people is, are you going to cover more advanced stuff? It all depends on the way you want to practice. I am not going to cover advanced techniques in the guide. So the most likely question to me would be, how do you go about making a basic painting after having learned the basics?
