Yeah, I was just super surprised that it had actually been built into Photoshop. Makes adding new palettes veeeeery easy.

Great master tumblr post that compiles other art related posts on tumblr. Wow that sounded redundant.

Here's a nice new art tutorial on drawing kids and older people in a more "anime" style. I remember seeing someone complain about a lack of references for older people in anime/manga to use... I can't remember if that was here or not, but hopefully this is useful to someone.

I dunno if someone's posted these yet, but I've been finding video anatomy tutorials easier to grasp than static image tutorials. Basically I follow along as the person's drawing...the whole thing feels more visceral to me.

These are two I've been checking out:

drawtips (animator's website: solomation) http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4AABBEDFB0395933

and

Mark Crilley (for manga) http://www.youtube.com/user/markcrilley

Two very different approaches, and Crilley's probably more accessible, but I'd recommend looking at these two and as many as possible as you learn.

Edit: I'm just starting to look into these tutorials in my attempt to conquer the male anatomy. I really like Jazza's tutorials (plus he's funny and has a cute accent. *swoon*).

^Has that been shared yet? If not, there you go. It's kinda like a slideshow of human figures with minimal clothing (sometimes completely nude if you choose that option) so that way you can learn anatomy and poses at the same time.

GIMP Paint Studio - For painters and artists alike. (I love this thing)
from Google Code wrote:The goal of GPS is to provide an adequate working environment for graphic designers and artists to begin to paint and feel comfortable with GIMP from their first use. Later the user will change these settings based on his own workflow preferences and understanding of GIMP.
Intro video: (the dev is Spanish...so it's heavily accented)


Update for GIMP 2.8:
http://libregraphicsworld.org/blog/entr ... r-gimp-2.8

A quick look at the presets samples




from my 30 minute experience? This thing is powerful in the hand of the right persons. (Had a nice time playing with the presets though)

Side note: hate the boring greys of GIMP? Pimp your GIMP (dear God...a pun) here

Just found this website with various video tutorials about how to draw the Head and elements of the head.
On the "Books" Tab, you may find links to buy on amazon some essential books for artists!

When drawing something, anything, USE REFERENCES!! Use your Google-fu!
Don't trust your memory, and don't blindly trust what others teach you either.
Research, observation, analysis, experimentation and practice are the key! (:

I just heard about this new art program, that's like SAI and Photoshopped combined? Best of all, it's free. The website isn't working for me at the moment.

But it's called FireAlpaca, if anyone is interested.

It's already been mentioned and it's listed in the OP post.

Since backgrounds are pretty much hard to do, why isn't there any resource about backgrounds and perspective and stuff? ouo

I just bought "Perspective Made Easy" by Ernest R Norling, and it's pretty spot-on on explaining things. I think it will be useful for some people~

And if anyone needs exercises for drawing, "The Magic of Drawing" by Cliff Wright helps too. It helps with eye-hand coordination, and there are some tips about composition too, helpful for CGs. :)
