I must have made 100 (lol) illustrations till I got it figured out and got one excepted. Dreamstime is a great place to learn, if you have the patience. The inspectors can find the smallest errors..you just need to find them first before you submit.....It is a great area to expand. Your illustration style is going to be wonderful!

Your illustration is amazing! I would like to try to do illustrations, but don't know where to begin, any thoughts, exactly what software is the best or did you use?

Hi Nylakatara2013,

Wow, you have wonderful watercolors!

It depends on how much you want to spend on a program.

Inkscape and Gimp are free programs and after a learning curve you will be able to make illustrations.
Photoshop Illustrator is also a great program and very popular, but very expensive..and also a learning curve.
If you are looking for a program that feels more like your watercolors, Corel Painter 12 and a wacom tablet would be a great start. Also a learning curve.

I would suggest looking at a few tutorials of each program and see what you think.
There are also more discussions on here, on each of these programs, if you have the time to read some of them.

I started out with Inkscape and Gimp because I could just download the programs and start learning. Now I have Painter 12 and a wacom (after saving my money) and I love it.

I use Inkscape for my illustrations

Thanks so much for the reply! I just bought photoshop elements and I am teaching myself to use it - fumbling around in the dark sometimes but constantly learning, I will take a look at your suggestions; I appreciate the jump start! Thank you also for the nice compliments on the watercolors I just started painting about 6 months ago, again self taught, I seem to take the hard journeys but very gratifying!
