    Anthony Jones started releasing tutorials on Gumroad recently: https://gumroad.com/robotpencil

    Most of them are probably not useful to a straight-up beginner, but the handful I've purchased have been pretty good. The Greyscale to Color one was beneficial to my recent dragon painting.

    I've also bought a few new tutorials from Kalen Chock and Maciej Kuciera but I haven't sat down and watched them yet. Kalen has a few vids that are definitely more beginner-oriented.

    The thread is already stickied. I still have no idea what it is you're referring to.

    Is it cool that I post printing/merch resources for potential convention selling folk?
    (I ventured out the Dob thread and just noticed this was here, shuttup.)

    Oh that's right me exploring outside of one thread.

    I recently placed an order of prints at Fireball Printing, a company that I wanted to try for a while.
    While I love my current print company, Catprint, Fireball is better at pricing custom sizes, which is what I need. They're also cheaper per print. I'll post a review when they come.

    I found this tutorial on line of action from an animator. It's incredibly helpful.

    Since Sycra was already mentioned twice, I'll bring up Jazza as well and add a note - their stylization may not be appealing to everyone (shit, it isn't for me), but a lot of their tutorial and speedsketch videos have some great info lurking around in them (like how to work in a professional enviroment, how to get started, how to beat art block, how to gain confidence, how to accept criticism, etc) so even if you don't like their particular style, let the videos run in the background while you do something else and maybe you'll pick up some info you needed.

    Also gonna add ctrl-paint since I didn't see it on the thread yet, and just in case someone who's popping over hasn't heard of it yet.

    If you're drawing animals, I recommend Ken Hultgren's 'The Art of Animal Drawing' (it actually breaks down animals, not just teaches you how to copy from a photo like 99% of 'how to draw animals' books)

    Mike Mattesi's 'Force: Animal Drawing'
    has some good tips on animals in motion if you're doing animation or comics.

    And that's about all I can remember for now that are actually good and haven't been mentioned yet.

    I end up finding things like this useful. For example, I have more experience with cigarette smokers than cigar or pipe smokers, so if I have a character doing the latter two things, I don't have a very big mental library for what that looks like.
