From start­ing sketches to fin­ish­ing flour­ishes, get to grips with how to use the Brush to draw

So you have Pho­to­shop, you’ve down­loaded some brushes, and you’ve checked out some tu­to­ri­als on how to cre­ate dig­i­tal art­work. But what if you’re not very good at draw­ing? Well, we’re here to help! Draw­ing is one of the sim­plest hob­bies you can prac­tise: all you need is a pen­cil and some pa­per. But some of us don’t have the nat­u­ral artis­tic tal­ent of be­ing able to put down on a page what we vi­su­alise in our minds. Get­ting bet­ter at draw­ing is first and fore­most a mat­ter of prac­tise – as with most skills – but to help you start off on the right foot, we asked our favourite dig­i­tal artists for their top draw­ing tips. Over the next few pages, we’re go­ing to be look­ing at some sim­ple ways you can to im­prove your Pho­to­shop draw­ing abil­i­ties. From sketch­ing an­i­mals or em­bel­lish­ing por­traits, to adding light and shade to your im­ages and get­ting the best out of dif­fer­ent brushes. Think of this as your crash course to be­come a bet­ter artist. Even if you’re a pretty good artist al­ready, you’re bound to pick up a few handy tips along the way.
