There’s no getting around the need for a drawing tablet when you want to start making digital art. So of course, step one is to get one of these. You can find some options on Jumia like this one for GHC318 or this one for GHC179, however, these tablets are shipped from abroad so it could take up to a month to get your hands on your tablet.

Step 2: Pick Your Software

Once you’ve got your tablet and installed it on your computer, all that’s left is to pick a program and get started making some art. Our recommendations are Adobe PhotoShop or Procreate. Some of the features that you’ll soon discover make digital art a more modern medium are the undo button and the fact that you can create layers on a single drawing so that you can edit them separately.

Step 3: Make some Art And Share It
