     Mandy Roberts replied to this: Not at all! My husband bought me a tablet years ago and I started with coloring line art with it. Mainly filling in a single color and using dodge and burn. And then, I spent time on DA and saw what so many artists would do. So I started trying to learn how to not use dodge & burn, but rather different colors, got better acquainted with PS, and eventually took the leap into not having "lines" in my pics. There were a lot of tutorials on DA on how to do things and over the years, just practice, learning different tricks in PS (I even just learned last week about something I had never used before), and developing my own style. Not too helpful, I know, but I'd say online tutorials helped a lot in the beginning.
