Artistry itself is timeless. However, a piece of art will always be firmly based in its time and a product of those days. Artists of the 21st century have to understand the cutting edge digital tools available today. Especially considering most artists don’t make a living selling portraits — they make ends meet working for businesses creating a visually arresting message.
Even if your art is solely done with real world pencils and paints, the training in the Ultimate Graphic Design Bundle ($29, over 90 percent off, from TNW Deals) can show you the software tools to take your art to the digital age.
This bundle includes eight courses, covering the fundamental software tools and design principles to help talented artists translate their creativity for a tech-driven society. You’ll get:
