Along with makeup and cooking, another one of my passions is drawing. Once upon a time I wanted to be an artist but that didn’t work out too well in the long run. Drawing is pretty much just a hobby for me but I love it nonetheless.
Here is a list of my favorite resources online.
Posemaniacs is an awesome resource! It has a ton of poses, both male and female – sitting, standing, running, etc…
DeviantArt is a place where you can upload your own artwork, view and favorite others’ art…those sort of things. They do have a great resource selection of tutorials, Photoshop and other program resources, traditional media tutorials, stock images, the list goes on and on. I have been on this site for about 8 years and now the resource section is almost all I use.
Creating an account is optional, of course, but having one allows you to keep track of art you like.
This is a site I discovered very recently.
CG Cookie is a network of sites similar to DeviantArt, but is more focused on education. From what I have read, CG Cookie was all about digital art but now has several other parts which offer other tutorials, resources, etc…
I personally like Tim Von Rueder’s work. He runs part of CGCookie’s site Concept Cookie and also has a deviantart account.
Tumblr actually has a good amount of resources that aren’t just reblogged from other sites. Here are my favorites.
Probably need to do a bit of digging on this one.
Pixiv is a good place for art and some references, but it’s mostly in Japanese.
Manga University has some decent anime/manga tutorials.
Also, if you’re into digital artwork or you like drawing with a pen and tablet on the computer, I highly recommend checking out Paint Tool SAI. It is amazing. It responds to pressure like 1000x better than photoshop LOL
