2D art doesn't have to be difficult to do digital, the trick is simply to make it look more advanced than it is.

1) Start by drawing the basic outlines. Here we'll draw an apple.

2) Create a new layer and add sharp, contrasting colors. Using fewer colors often result in crisper, sharper images. Use a sharp brush with high opacity, like 60-100%. Also try to capture the highlights from the start.

3) When we have a stable base it's time to lower opacity, this will give a slight gloss effect and add realism to the shades. Use a hard brush with 25-30% opacity, To bridge the color-transitions, you can use a soft brush with 40% opacity and gently smudge the edges to make it blend.

4) Time to add more details, sharpen up the highlights and add some shadows. Use a large sized brush with low opacity.

5) The final touch is used with shades of brown, soft brushes and light shadows. Remember to add a small shadow from the stalk.

That's all there is to it really, it doesn't take much more than this. The apple took about 1½ hour from sketch to almost edible.

i might get something like a wacom. i'm not a great artist at the best of times and trying to draw with a mouse just makes it more difficult.
