My pleasure, you're artwork is amazing. When did you first start learning how to draw and color digitally? I've been wanting to start doing that so is there any pointers you can give me to help me start?
I began to draw in Photoshop and SAI(my favorite one) about 3 years ago just because wanted to try new way to make art. I bought a graphic tablet and started to experiment with it)) before that was Paint and mouse X) But also traditional art as well. The process is not very different - practice and study are good things, practice especially.
Just try every program you lay your eye on and you'll find your own favorite and most comfortable to work with))) Here on DA there are many wonderful tutorials for almost every program, I use them a lot, they are very helpful and many of them are written for beginners
the greatest problem is - to buy or not to buy tablet. If you'll decide to get one, look for Wacom. They are the best and totally worth it) If not - I recommend to try vector graphics, it is convenient to make vectors with mouse)
I definitely think I'm going to get a tablet. haha one time I used the opacity to color one of my characters, only to find out that people use the air brush tool. haha I still haven't found that tool yet.
