If this question has been asked already, I apologise.
I've had trouble finding a good recommendation of things to learn in order to become a good digital artist. The Internet is full of suggestions, of course, but I'd like to hear some advice from experienced artists, if possible. Is it better to first learn traditional painting and drawing, before getting into digital media? Or is it better to first complete some courses or read some books on Photoshop or Illustrator? It's a bit confusing for someone wanting to learn on his own. If someone could shed some light on this matter, it'd be great.
Thank you in advance.
