That’s a very broad question! Please tell us more about the kind of work you want to do.

While I’m here, I think I should take the opportunity to point out that you seem to have abandoned your recent thread about creating patterns:

Hi, Goldblacc,

Start by going to youtube, and search on "digital painting." A couple hundred tutes and tips will show up, probably a couple hundred hours. And thats just the tip of the iceberg.

Most will be specific to a certain application, such as Corel Painter, Krita, etc, etc, etc. There are a few using Affinity Photo and Designer, tho' neither is specifically a painting program. Search on Frankentoon, for some nice examples of what is being done w. Affinity, and how to do it.

Expect to start by collecting as many "brushes" as you can, and learning how to make your own. Then make a few hundred strokes, dabs, and washes w. each. Then start experimenting w. blend modes, which are much more varied in digital art than in any traditional media I know about.
