Learn to do Digital painting is a relatively new but already established art form. It’s a medium that typically combines a computer, a graphics tablet, and software of choice. The artist uses painting and drawing techniques with the stylus that comes with the graphics tablet to create 2D paintings within digital art software. There are multiple techniques and tools that are utilized by digital artists, the first being digital brushes.

In conclusion, you should still try out traditional paint and canvas, there is nothing like it! Meanwhile, you can learn digital painting by experimenting on the Ipad. As long as you have battery life you can paint anywhere!

 These come standard with all digital art programs but users can create their own, altering their shape, texture, size, and transfer.[3] Many of these brushes are created to represent traditional styles like oilsacrylicspastelscharcoal, and airbrushing, but not all.[4] Other effective tools include layers, lasso tools, shapes, and masks.
