Handy Art Link Megapost

I take no credit for any of this, all I did was assemble them togetha’.

Hellooo friends, I was just handed a couple of useful links from a talented friend, and seeing some posts on Facebook and around the internets inspired me to share them all with you in this handy place.

Bookmark them all, or bookmark this note, idc, just keep track of ‘em!

ALSO IF YOU HAVE MORE TO ADD PLEASE LET ME KNOW. (Also, apologizes for the wall of text. I CANNOT SEEM TO GET THE “READ MORE” BUTTON TO WORK.)

ArtsyPoses - http://artsyposes.com

Relatively new, but very cool. The 30 second drawing tool seems to be glitching a little but that could be my computer being a dumb. Lots of unique poses and they’re looking to expand to other body types (if you read the FAQ they even said there are too many fit models haa)

PoseManiacs - http://posemaniacs.com

Everybody knows this one! Great poses, you can interact with them (rotation, etc) and has a very cool 30 second drawing tool. Also I belieeeve this is available on iOS.

Pixelovey - http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php

Another fantastic drawing tool - I prefer it over PoseManiacs’ but I can NEVER FIND THE LINK :( Lots of options here, too.

CedarSeed - http://www.cedarseed.com/fire/tutorials.html

The drawings here aren’t great but there is so much information here. SO MUCH.

Color Is Value - http://sevencamels.blogspot.com/2010/09/color-is-value.html

Handy coloring tips and things!

Ctrl+Paint - http://www.ctrlpaint.com/

So many digital painting tutorials. SO MANY. Ridiculously helpful in everything ever, and constantly updated.

Lackadaisy Expressions - http://lackadaisy.foxprints.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=333

This artist is incredibly talented and even though they are cats there is so much to be learned here.

+ more - http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/210/1/5/lackadaisy_construction_by_tracyjb-d422uo7.jpg

The Angry Animator - http://www.angryanimator.com/word/2010/11/26/tutorial-2-walk-cycle/

Because come on, all sorts of handy animation tips. I linked directly to the walk cycle because I found it to be most useful but there are other things floatin’ around there if that’s your thing~

Constructing the Head/Face - http://amberblade.tumblr.com/post/11177240121/tutorials-done-by-stanislav-prokopenko-who-is-an

Done by Stanislav Prokopenko, an instructor. Also really seems to know what he’s talking about. Saving images off of Tumblr seems to be hit-or-miss so keep this link handy as it may not save correctly. :(

And so begins the dumping of handy tutorial images that should all be on your harddrives soon :

How to Draw All Kinds of Shit - http://coelasquid.blogspot.com/2009/01/muscle-tutorial-thinger.html

Some of you may remember this from all of James Phegan’s classes ever! Super handy, and this is a printable version of the giant jpg he used to e-mail us.

Also, psst. - http://www.mediafire.com/?z7c401x9fdwqx - Ten art books that we should all own already.

For artsy fartsy types like me. I’ve got A LOT of this book marked already if that says anything about how useful this stuff is.

ALSO! Side note, there are a few very kind asks in my inbox regarding my artwork and inquiries about webcomics. I HAVE read them, and I WILL answer them. If the comic is any indicator, I haven’t had the time to sit down and do personal work as of late, and that includes responding to folks that would take a little longer than a quick “Hey! Thanks for that! I appreciate it!”

But, yes! Bookmark Miss Addy’s post and give this stuff a genuine look.

A MILLION REBLOOBS

This is bizarre, seeing my post coming from somebody else’s blog, who didn’t get it from me. And hey look, somebody changed the source URL to their own blog. Cool, dude. 8( I know I said I take no credit for the contents but stealing credit for yourself, really?

pistolmind:

For anyone who wants to improve their art, I decided to share some helpful things, such as tutorials, references, photostock websites, etc.
I won’t be updating this certain post so if you want to see more just click on the “Helpful” tab on my tumblr and I’ll try to submit things on there every now and then.
I hope you find everything here helpful, if you do then please reblog to share this with other growing artists!

Photostock 

Perspective

Human Anatomy
DISCLAIMER: I HIGHLY SUGGEST THAT YOU NOT ONLY STUDY THESE AND OTHER PEOPLE’S STUDIES BUT ALSO WORK FROM LIFE AS WELL BECAUSE THESE MAY NOT BE AS HELPFUL AS THE ACTUAL THINGS.

Animal References

Because they’re so frustrating, they deserve their own section.

 Colouring, Painting & Shading.

DISCLAIMER: I RECOMMEND THAT YOU USE THIS FOR PRACTICE USE ONLY, TRY NOT TO RELY SO MUCH ON THEM AND TEACH YOURSELF HOW TO DO IT ON YOUR OWN.

I hope this helps!
