    Getting Started in Digital Painting

    Hello,

    Ive been following these forums for quite a while and they are definitely the richest source of art knowledge and inspiration I have found on the web. I love a lot of these tutorials I have read on this site but the problem I keep running into is where exactly do I begin my learning when it comes to digital painting?

    Is the first step to learn about the basic mechanics of the brush tool in photoshop first?

    (photoshop cs is my preferred program)
