    Consider joining that Discord as most of us are pretty active there. Your best bet is to find some stuff you find inspirational to have on reserve. It never hurts to have a collection of work that gives you ideas. Next, start messing around. Familiarize yourself with the program. Download a couple of brush packs and play around with those on a stock image you think is cool. Experiment with layer settings (darken, multiply, color dodge, linear dodge, etc); your biggest jumps in progress towards being where you want to be are going to come from revelations in developing a new technique, or finding something you think is cool. Most importantly though, stay consistent but don't force yourself. Work on something when you feel the drive to do so and it won't feel like such a slog learning. Don't set the expectation bar too high. Your first little while with the program is going to be a slow and confusing one as you begin to learn the ins and outs. Remember, familiarity comes more in time than anything else. Eventually you'll get to a place where you're able to look at someone else's work and breakdown how they were able to execute it.

    What sort of images do you think are coolest?

    There are alot of quality helpers out there but i advise like the person above says to just make shit then ask for feedback. I tought myself gfx by just making crappy logos over and over until i think im kinda okay at it now.

    I also advise you join the discord as they are all helpful dudes
