Lately I’ve been trying to learn how to draw and paint. I’m dirt poor, so I am mostly limited to what books are available in the local library system. I figure that since I spend some time on the computer also, it might also be a good idea to ask if you folks know of any effective art tutorials around about the internet.
So far I have been dabbling in colored pencils, markers, and acrylic paints. I also have Photoshop Elements 2.0, as I understand that it can be useful for drawing and coloring illustrations. Any links to relevant information would be hugely appreciated. I’m keen to learn how to create fantasy/SF-style illustrations.
