Back in September, Apple released the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the cool new Apple Pencil to write and draw with. That release, of course, led to some pretty cool innovations in the digital art world.

Now, more than ever, it's easier for professional artists, as well as aspiring artists, to create incredibly realistic paintings, drawings, illustrations and more. All you need to make it happen is the right app, an iPad and, optionally, the Apple Pencil.

For more than 25 years, Photoshop has been the best image editing software on the market and the same can be said of its newly updated sketching and drawing app, Adobe's Photoshop Sketch. But not everyone is comfortable with Adobe products. Suites like Photoshop and Illustrator come with a learning curve and require some basic training and/or getting used to.

Luckily, Adobe knows this. Just this week, it has begun releasing episodes in its four-part series that can help you learn how to use the app. But here's the best part: A Bob Ross look-alike is showing you the ropes. That's right. Digital artist Chad Cameron has dressed like Bob Ross to help you get the basics of Adobe Sketch down pat. You'll be making lots of "Happy Trees" in no time at all!

Just head to the Adobe Creative Cloud YouTube page to see the tutorials. See Cameron explain the difference between the brushes, explore the menus of options, learn how to use the rulers, combine images, and how to use the blending, smudge and other color tools.

Once you get the hang of things and have created a masterpiece, the Sketch app makes it super-easy to share your files with other Adobe editors like Photoshop or Illustrator, in case you need to make additional edits or to put in final touches.
