Alright, I've decided that I want to learn how to paint digitally.
Problem: I don't know the first thing about painting in any medium.
I tried to paint a gorilla here, before I realized that I didn't know the first thing about what I was trying to do. The grisly results are pictured below.
Where should I start, guys? How can I learn how to do this? And don't tell me "paint lots". I know that, I intend to attempt a painting every day this month, but I don't even know the most basic principles of this.
