  • Hello marsha, clip paint studio the software I use mostly,if you use the Turnip pen or the G pen I find them easier than the pencil. type in 50 in your stabilization box.However for a beginner I would get a copy of Autodesk sketchbook software. There is a free version which would help you practice,I think it is the simplest digital programme, really easy to use.Sketchbook is the one that really helped me,I have had real problems learning digital painting.



  • Here is a link to Autodesk sketchbook https://www.sketchbook.com/. free version it is not a trail.

    @tessw Thanks 🙂





  • in the help section you can download the entire manual for the program. I personally do not like the stability function as it feels clunky to me. The biggest thing is to warm up your arm with exercises on the tablet draw lines, circles and such. Become comfortable with the rotate function draw from your arm just like you would when working on paper as mentioned above Matt Kohr at ctrl paint as some videos he also has an entire paid series on digital painting the first series is very good for beginners

    And in that case, using a bit of cloth under your hand or buying a special glove can help you to draw from your arm a lot better. It will allow your hand to rest on the tablet allowing for stability, but your hand can still glide along the surface.

    I took one of my kids stretchy knit gloves, cut the thumb, index and middle fingers off just leaving the ring and pinky fingers. It works great. Those artist gloves can be like $20+ where as these was free. Just the kids fingers get cold in the winter LOL

    Here's my attempt today. No layers just the paint brush, penicl and blender. It was pretty hard.

  • It is pretty good for a first attempt you seem to be getting the hang of it,and digital art is hard when you are used to painting traditionally.
