A couple of days ago I dusted off my Veikk tablet and installed the latest version of Krita.
As per post title, my goal is to have fun with digital painting and drawing; but at the same time I'd like to get a bit better at it and produce something nice to look at - satisfying although not professional.
I watched several Krita tutorials, but most of them, though very useful, are (understandably) mostly concerned with teaching us how to use Krita and all its options and tools, assuming 'I know what I am doing', whereas actually I do not know anything about the art of painting / drawing itself.
So I'm not sure I am going to improve at all if I just play around with it, without any 'structure' in my approach, and perhaps trying to 'run before I can walk'.
A brief Google search showed that the possibilities are endless, of course. Easy to get lost in too much unstructured information.
So I was thinking: like in many other fields, where you need to learn some fundamentals first, and in a very specific order, maybe in this case too there is a 'standard' process / sequence of steps I need to follow, to do this properly. Is that so?
E.g., should I learn first about colours?
Hand-eye coordination exercises? (suggested by some YouTube tutorials)
Materials (maybe not so much for digital painting, but who knows)?
If you can give any advice regarding the correct way to approach this, and/or can suggest any websites / resources / tutorials that could help in that sense, it would be greatly appreciated.
So far I have found the posts below in this forum, which seem partly related to what I am asking; if you think there is nothing new to add, OK. But my point is more about how to structure the learning process in time.
