Hey are there any tips you can give me for digital painting because I just started 1 month ago.

If you want to drasticly improve in painting then the only thing you can do is to work everyday.

First of all: Ask yourself what you want to do, if you dont know yet just keep doing what you do right now.
Sooner or later you'll find something you enjoy.

Draw a lot but take your time if you actually want to learn something from it, try to get your values right because these are incredibly important for the readability and realism of your piece.
- What I do to work on my values is to paint colored photographs in greyscale.
At the end I check how far I'm of the original values by setting the saturation down to -100 (strg+u in photoshop)
what I mean by values is the gradient of light and shadow on form
If you want to color it afterwards you just have to create a new layer over your painting, set the blending mode to color and paint some colors in.
If your values are right, your applied colors will look right

Don't forget to also draw on paper. You wont believe how much I improved by stopping to paint digitally for a while and just sketching around.

Uhm, regarding digital techniques: Its always a good idea to do some research for resources and watching others while they paint.
Here is some stuff I personally find very helpful.
[link] @ resources
[link] some more resources
[link] great tutorials and painting stuff, also check his recommended channels.

[link] is a great website to explore the techniques of other artists in real time, some of them also talk and explain what they're doing right now. (you can also watch recorded streams on demand)

yeah well, thats it.
Follow your dreams, work hard and you'll definately get what you want.
It's just a matter of time.
