I'm what is known as a "self taught" artist. That is to say I never attended art school, although I did take art to "0" level at school in England.
When I transitioned into digital media, I discovered that digital artists of all types are accustomed to honing and increasing their technical skills with whichever program they are working in using free online tutorials. These range from how-to essays with screen shots so you can see how to get a particular effect, to video tutorials.
