PE: Learning to paint with deviantArt

Sat Jan 26, 2013, 4:10 PM


A lot of people want to learn to draw and paint better but they just don't know where to start. You don't need an expensive art course to learn and progress, sometimes the answers are not far away. On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them. When you know what you want to improve, searching for a good tip gets even easier.

As stated a great list of links. I'd suggest a link or two on lights and shadows to make this a fairly comprehensive listing for any artist regardless of their medium.

I dabble exclusively in digital art. But the basics of composition, color, anatomy and lighting all play vital roles in any medium. So, while I skip lightly over those covering use of oils, pastels, watercolors, and so forth, I have learned a lot from other tutorials covering composition, anatomy/posing and so forth.

Thanks for taking time to put this listing together.
