It's a lovely site and everyone should go there.

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

http://www.cracked.com/article_18664_5-annoying-trends-that-make-every-movie-look-same.html

http://theabyssgazes.blogspot.com/2010/03/teal-and-orange-hollywood-please-stop.html

http://orangeandtealgames.tumblr.com/

http://io9.com/5976379/have-you-ever-noticed-that-all-movie-trailers-use-the-same-color-palette

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

http://cinemashock.org/2012/05/21/color-scheme-in-american-beauty/

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.

I know the "Concept Art" portion of this particular website has already been posted, but I think it's worth it to mention that CG Cookie offers tutorials for a variety of 3D programs as well. My favorite happens to be BlenderCookie, Blender being a completely 100% free 3D modeling/sculpting/animation program. I think it's definitely worth looking into if you want to dabble in 3D art without having to spend money on expensive programs.

On that note, Sculptris is a great 3d sculpting program made by Pixologic, who are none other than the same company who created zbrush. http://pixologic.com/sculptris/

I found out that Noah Bradley had released his first week of Art Camp.

He spoke about Master Studies/Copies. I learned a lot from doing one.
