    Is "Beginners Guide to Digital Painting in Photoshop Vol 1" Still worth getting?

    I'm new to photoshop and digital painting. the book came out in 2012 and photoshop has changed much since that time.

    So still worth in your opinions?

    Forget about digital painting if you;re a beginner. Learn to draw with traditional media first, it's going to make things much easier. If you can;t draw don't buy those digital painting tutorials because at this stage it's going to confuse you a lot simply due the fact that you need to know how to draw before you can start painting. That book isn't a drawing book.

    You can start with painting and try to skip drawing but you'll see the effect of that in your paintings (errors).

    I'm not a fan of books but instead I prefer videos. I love the tutorials of Lu Dongjun
