The thread for awesome references (and tutorials).:

I'm not sure if this exactly matches what you're looking for, but this tutorial was useful for me. It's pretty long though...

Random helpful link:

Here are a bunch of pictures of peoples' faces.

Click on one (twice) for a high-res version.

I find this more interesting than anything else I've run across online for months.

Edit: I just wish there was a little less Monochrome Casting.

An interesting approach to colours, by the same person who illustrates Dinotopia.

Edit: A simple tool to set perspective grids. It's all kinds of awesome.

I found it on Deviant art this one is a must for good artists that want to practice gesture drawing and poses

http://senshistock.deviantart.com/gallery/ This deviantart account is my go to place for pose references. The only thing I can think that might be wrong is that there isn't much body type diversity?

http://color-palettes.tumblr.com/archive http://chromaa.tumblr.com/ And those are my go to places for color palettes, especially when designing characters.

In a similar vein to the blog that Noaqiyeum linked to, this anatomy-focused Tumblr is pretty helpful when it comes to weird little details.

Anybody need fonts?

(Note that the ones with an F are the free ones, but that there are plenty with F so you'll be fine.)

@Fancolors: It's got missing pages on mine.

Anyway I'm trying to learn adobe flash but what tutorials I can find refer to a feature that is different for my modern copy, or it feels like there is a step missing and I can't find out what exactly to do. Anybody got any good flash tutorials they can share, maybe one you learned from?

Also I could definitely use pointers on my drawing skills, can somebody show me a great place for beginning artists to learn drawing or moderates to brush up on the basics?

Whatever tomorrow brings I'll be there. With open arms and open eyes.

Also does anyone know any place to get good Maya tutorials?

Portugal according to Hetalia
I'm thinking of starting a webcomic about nations (although I still have to learn how to draw with a bare minimum of quality), but I have some troubles with:

  • Feet;
  • Hair;
  • Seagulls (actual seagulls);
  • Waves;

Does anyone know any good references? Thank you.

Just found this. Saving it here to come back and read it later.

(A 44-page .pdf handbook on perspective drawing.)

Here are (most of) the unrestricted stock providers on Deviantart.

Edit: Also, Concept artist Feng Zhu was kind enough to leave all the guidelines in these vehicle sketches, giving us a pretty good idea of how he lays them out.

Here's a whole damn textbook on perspective, if you care to read it.

I'm going to try, but I wouldn't blame you if you don't.

The only standard proportion reference you'll ever need.

Also applies to males. Slightly NSFW, though.
