www.deviantart.com just about everyone knows this one, but there are a lot of resources on the site. tutorials, brushes, stock, etc.

www.dafont.com if you're into posters or advertising, etc, the wide variety of fonts might be helpful.

Another Anatomy site,

http://www.virtualpose.net/

They sell books and CD's of models, but the difference is what you get is a Quicktime image with full 360 degress of rotation, so you can turn the image to an position you require.

Bump again... I couldn't even find this thread in the Fan Art forum, I only found it by looking through my own post history to find a link to it. It must have been trapped in some kind of parallel dimension. This thread was stickied before the forums got rearranged and Fan Art got moved into the Fandom Come section, I don't know why it's not stickied now.

Some people have asked me about how I do up my art - specifically the stages and processes involved. And while I've done up tutorials in the past, they now seem a bit dated compared with my current technique.

So, I created This Tutorial of 8 easy steps to help people better understand how to create character art in Photoshop.

I hope you all dig it.
