Art Resources

This is a list of helpful online resources and tutorials that I compiled for the attendees of a drawing workshop I gave in July. I thought I'd share it for anyone who'd like to keep a list of resources handy. It's not as extensive as some resource collections, but it covers the basics.

Here's a collection of tutorials by Sherm Cohen: http://shermcohen.deviantart.com/gallery/23661671 He worked for Nickelodeon and these were actually used for the crew working on Spongebob. There's a lot of neat stuff about line of action, poses, planning out a drawing, and other things. There's also a link to his site where he has tutorial videos.

Great stuff on expressions: http://tracyjb.deviantart.com/art/Lackadaisy-Expressions-193978013

Here's a collection of tutorials on drawing the human figure: http://alexds1.deviantart.com/gallery/ there's special emphasis on faces, poses, hands and feet
