Hi Hayden

If you're serious about digital painting you'll have to invest in one of the big two- Photoshop or Painter. I'd recommend Photoshop to start with.

Here's a link to some tutorials

Thanks guys, Chris there isn't much difference between Photoshop and Paintshop from what I can tell. Unless theres a way it renders the pxiels differently or something they seem to have the same options and avaliability

well apart from everyone uses photoshop

The basics are probably the same, but Photoshop would have more parameters, tools, options and plug-ins etc.

I guess once you find Paintshop to be lacking in certain areas, then it's time to upgrade.

I can't remember the name of the program off the top of my head, but the full version of it comes free with this month's British edition of Digital Creative Arts magazine.

Anyway, it's supposedly got a layout and brush capabilities similar to Painter, except IT'S A VECTOR illustration program! How cool is that!?
It's supposed to be something like 350pounds RRP or something.
There's also a couple hundred stock photos for free as well...

I'm gonna grab a copy of the mag next week, so if it's any good, I'll fill you guys in on it (unless someone can beat me to the punch)... Maybe let people borrow the magazine with the disc *nudge nudge wink wink*

Practicing will real paint first will teach you the fundamentals, then consider 'going digital'. When I started I practiced by copying the masters from books and seeing the work firsthand in galleries.
Below is a Sargeant copy I did with cheap acrylics on cardboard. I learnt a lot about rendering fleshtones and blending colours from this exercise, and I ended up with a neat little painting ... it only took an hour or two in front of the telly after work.
Give it a go, you might discover a hidden talent for painting ... you might even enjoy it, god forbid!
