Traditional Art Tutorials on DeviantArt

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.

Ah, thank you so much for making this! :iconinuilikeitplz: I see all sorts of helpful tutorials here, but they're all for digital art! I hardly ever make digital art, so it's nice to see a traditional art tutorial.
