    Thought I'd add this link about one artist in particular.
    http://teamgt.com/?page_id=505 - Francis Tsai

    He is an illustrator diagnosed with ALS - Lou Gerhrig's disease.
    When he could no longer use his hands, he was using his toes to draw. When he could no longer draw with his toes, he's still drawing using eye tracking technology.

    Store to help support him here: http://francistsaistore.storenvy.com/

    Do podcasts count? Search 'bobby chiu' on youtube to find a ton of pro artist interviews. Real inspiring to listen to while you work on art.

    Freshdesigner has some great tips. What I usually like about his site is he's apparently one of the few that still uses a lot of the Reilly Method (which has been a very interesting approach to art)

    I am linking this particular part of his blog, but I encourage seeing all of it and his youtube channel. The reason I'm linking this part is he is showing how much he was improving by painting observational studies.

    Not found by me but Tiamat showed me the link NSFW classic style nude paintings. Very nice - http://www.robertoferri.net/

    Hello,

    I thought these sites were interesting since I got into a discussion with friends the other day about a very overused color scheme known as the "Hollywood Palette"

    These sites broke down color schemes in cinematography

    This one talks about movie trends but also shows the dreaded Hollywood Palette

    I find them useful to see how even in film you design color schemes for composition and mood.

    I also had visited a site that broke down the color schemes for entire films which was fascinating. I'll post more if there are people interested. I personally love it since it helps me think about composition and design in illustrations.
