I decided to purchase the video about digital illustration in photoshop by Will Terry from the Folio Academy. So far it's been great! I feel like I've gotten way more information then spending it on a photoshop how to book. I've done that before and I'm just on as good about reading and doing the tutorials. I watch the video steps and then try. Pause try and so forth. It does help to have some basic understanding of photoshop. I think there was a beginner course offered. I can't wait to make a full illustration based on the course.
