Essential Skills Every Digital Artist Must Know (Video Course)

5 ratings

Digital art is a vast and complex field that requires a lot of knowledge and skills. From layer management to color selection, there are many aspects to learn. However, finding reliable and relevant information online can be challenging and time-consuming, especially for your specific art software.

That’s why I created this video course, where I demonstrate over 40 of the most useful skills for digital artists. You can access this course anytime and search for the topics you need.

Moreover, this course is designed to be universal and applicable to various art software, such as Krita, Rebelle, Photoshop, Corel Painter and Clip Studio Paint.

This course will not only help you improve your skills with your current art software, but it will also expose you to other software options. As a digital artist, you will benefit from being versatile and adaptable to different software.

By learning the essential skills in this course, you will be ready to take on any digital art challenge and advance to more complex and creative projects.

This course is downloadable and can be watched at your own pace.


This course is available as "Pay What You Want". There is a minimum price, but you can enter a custom amount. I've done this to make the course more accessible to those on a budget.

This course was a lot of work, so if you are able to, I encourage you to pay more than that to help me continue making resources like this.
