It is easy to get carried away with electronics especially in the arts. The problem is that people use different systems for different things. As technology grows you may feel if you aren’t using the latest software then you aren’t a true artist. The fact is whatever you use is the best-for you! I still ink with a pen and still colour with markers and pencil crayons. I use programs like Photoshop to resize, colour, and adjust images more than anything else. If you talk with a photographer they will use the program totally different to the way I use it. The best way to focus on your art is to produce your art at the best level for you with the tools you know best. The rest will come when your ready.
