For real though. I’ve had my forge for about the same amount of time and everything I know I know from reading the forums and already existing tutorials.


I actually thought about doing an ebook at one point but then realized that it is just too much of a moving target. By the time I’d be half way thru chapter 2, chapter 1 would be getting obsolete! Best to learn how to search. Most everything has been covered, a lot of it recently.


@evansd2 has been a big help here just by getting the links all in one place for you. These are all pretty solid sources of info. I suggest taking the time to read through it and it’ll teach you quite a bit.
The biggest learning curve is really more on learning an external program like illustrator or Inkscape. I personally use Inkscape, which is free, and am able to make all my projects with no issue. Happy Learning!
