GraphicsDEN will teach you how to use a computer graphics program to create unique digital art. Each lesson takes you from start to finish of a digital project. You can follow our step-by-step instructions to complete a similar project. Or, you can apply what you learn here to your own computer illustrations.
For demonstration purposes, we have selected a graphics program called Paint Shop Pro. PSP is one of the easiest programs for beginners to learn and use. Yet, it offers powerful features often found in applications ten times its price. PSP also requires very little RAM to operate (4MB) and even runs smoothly on computers with only a 386 processor.
Every good artist needs a tool box full of art goodies. That's why we've included a virtual Artbox in GraphicsDEN as a reference to the various paint and select tools in Paint Shop Pro. If you happen to forget exactly which tool does what, look in the Artbox and click on a tool for a quick description and demonstration.
