This thread contains 100 or so links to valuable information on Art/Comic making.
Some links may contain nudity, And may not be suitable for those under 18 years of age! Be advised! It is mainly Tasteful nudity, and the purpose of the thread is to be worksafe so-I will remove any links to sites the mods/admins/users deem to risky.
The links are great and I urge you to check them out. More are listed at http://shii.org/2ch/art.html
Fonts(Skull note: Remember never use anything to computerized for speech)
Photoshop(Skull note: If you use the GIMP most of these will work)
The Rules of Art v1;
1. Study the following first;
-Anatomy(muscle structure, bone structure, construction of objects)
-Perspective(viewing angle, 1, 2 and 3 point perspectives)
-Composition(placement of objects, focal points, viewing angle, overall feel)
2. Study the following next;
-Contrast(emphasizing of opposites colors to create depth)
-Light/Shadow(how light creates shadows and highlights)
-Color Value(mood, atmosphere, how they affect a picture)
3. Study the following LAST;
-Creativity(concepts and imagination)
-Style(proper exaggeration of the above basics of art)
I've had these links/sites/contributed too for quite a while now- But was nervous to share because of the content of some: Even I haven't gotten through ALL of them!
If one of the links contains something you think is waaaaay to risky-Please PQ or post in the thread and I will remove it! Mods/Admins feel fit to remove too-(Don't ban meeee plz-! ;-; I only wish to help!)
-You will learn 10x more on anatomy from studying artistic nudes than people in clothing.
-Just because the ads on the sites are gross/porn doesn't mean the site is-they just need some extra cash ^^
-As you can see from comments in the post I take the 18+ warning quite seriously, Please respect the disclaimers.
-I made this thread because I want artists here to learn and grow as fast as I am- I hope those of you that came to this thread or the Overchan have learned at least one thing! :) I plan to add more to this thread as time goes on! But you can help as well::
If you have a link/tip to submit please post in the thread or pq! Your name will be added as credit next to it. Make sure the links have high quality content!
(I reserve the right not to add your link or tip-But that usually wont happen)
If you have praise/suggestions/complaints or otherwise also pq me or post them in the thread.
What links this thread currently needs: Links on comic tutorials!!
