Need guidance from skill artists


Recommended Posts

Basically I'm new to Affinity. I have messed around with PS but only to edit photos. simple stuff really. Tone, contrast, sizing, etc. nothing major.

I have no artistic skill. None! But I have vision and ideas. Don't want to keep paying artists to create stuff for me as its costing to much and the look is never completely how I envision things. 

Could you guys give me some pointers on how to start creating without artistic skill? haha

Maybe some links to sites with quality tutorials on how to do things in Affinity. I am a visual learner. reading does nothing for me. I need to see how a person does it and what they click to create it. Even a simple design like a landscape from start to finish. For now I am just tossing a picture in the software and clicking on things to see how they work. It would be helpful if I could find something that strings along some lessons that gets me started at actually creating something.

Any help is most appreciated!!
