So I promised funsizedcake that I’d send her some art resources that have been very helpful to me, but I figured I’d post them here so that anyone else who’s interested can see them. These are the most prominent ones I can think of at the moment but if I think of more I might add them to the list.
This is a series of free figure drawing tutorials by the artist Stan Prokopenko, beginning with gesture and working up through structure and anatomy. There are extended versions on his website too if you want to go premium and subscribe to the series, but I’ve benefited pretty hugely from the free videos alone.
Podcasts by the former Disney artist Chris Oatley, often featuring interviews with other professionals who work in the field of art, animation, and comics. They give really good advice for anyone seeking to make a career out of art, and have generally been a great inspiration to me.
Another industry professional with helpful advice. Noah Bradley posts a lot more tutorials though, and his videos are a good resource for anyone with an interest in digital painting.
A blog dedicated to posting and reblogging resources and tutorials for artists. i’ve found a lot of really useful stuff on here.
I could go on and on posting stuff, but basically my advice is just to look around and see what resources you benefit most from. There’s plenty of free youtube channels and podcasts (you can go on itunes and subscribe to podcasts like Big Illustration Party Time, Drawn Today, and Art&Story, etc.)
