Hi, looks like there is more demand than offer around here but I better try anyway.
I've bought a wacom tablet a few... months ago I think, while I used to be more of a pencil guy... I'm not having trouble as long as line art goes but I really don't understand the medium when it comes to coloring and proper "painting". I've been looking at different sites, tutos, including the peer projects thread but I got stuck on the most basic things like rendering edges. I understand the theory but can not find a way to make it on gimp... I'm wondering if I'm missing some obvious big point or something but I think at least I need someone to show me the basics, I'm motivated (I'm having a gap year before I go to an art university here in London) but terribly frustrated as I feel I can't even start learning cause I really don't understand how this medium work.
Hopefully someone can help me out with this, if any thread I haven't seen is susceptible to do explain all the basics please tell me.
