I am new to this message board. My brother introduced me to these forums...man I am amazed...I was looking at Jon Foster's work and was in awe. I can't imagine ever getting to that level... On that note...my question was a simple one...I just bought a 9x 12 wacom intuos 2 board and I just got painter 6 (soon to purchase 7). Everyone in my family has artistic ability of some sort (my brother is awesome...look up his stuff here under "Smeagol71") but I have never tried drawing or painting, conventionally or digitally, until just recently. Does anyone have any suggestions for any books, materials, etc... that can get me started on digital painting. Any help would be greatly appreciated...thanks so much.
