    So after being here for a while, I've seen loads of posts suggesting that the artist look up on some tutorials, but not actually linking to them. This thread shall have a list of tutorials for various purposes that can be used for traditional art - anatomy, technique, tools, almost anything to be found in the book. :3

    If you know of some tutorials you'd want to see on the list, post in a comment the original source of the tutorial, it should appear as a link. Progresses, runthroughs and walkthroughs are fine too, but first of all tutorials are wanted. The general rules still apply, especially the one about art theft - no ripping tutorials or you will be in trouble.

    Anything under a spoiler is basic descriptions of what everything in the link entails if there is more than one tutorial within.

    Without further explanation, here are the tuts - note that most will need to be fullviewed/downloaded if it's from DeviantArt:

    Odd. It worked to me... Maybe try again to fullview or the download button? It could have been a temporarly maintaining buisness DA went through, they do that often. (though that would only affect members options like commenting) File is still there so you should be able to view it. The link is correct as well, I checked.

    *update*

    Coco, if I'm not mistaken, then this link is broken. I guess she took it down or something. The file is no longer found. :sleep:

    Dang, you're right.. It was a rather useful tutorial too... shame. The other two works tho, and the starting point for the wings are pretty much the same. Hopefully she won't take those down as well. *fixes*
