It's always very much worth it to improve your digital art skills. Like all other creatives, even professional digital artists have much to learn, and in order to avoid stagnating and being left behind, you'll constantly need to push and challenge yourself as a creative.

This doesn't mean simply learning new software techniques or making sure you've got the best pencils or one of the best drawing tablets available. Improvement in your field is also about refreshing and refining those core art skills that help you to create brilliant visuals, whatever your medium. In this post, we look at five ways to improve your digital art skills with a mixture of some of our most popular tutorials on Creative Bloq, along with handy reading lists on everything from portrait skills to character design.
