Everything listed here is totally free


Free Vectors @ Vecteezy: www.vecteezy.com/ If you do any kind of logotype work with vectors this site will really come in handy. It's a pretty large database, so there's something for everyone!

Free Fonts @ dafont: www.dafont.com/ I'm always looking for really cool fonts to use in my artwork, and if you are too, they've got a really cool selection at dafont! If you're into typography it should be a really helpful resource!

Free Art Software @ freeartsoftware:freeartsoftware.com/2d-applica… OOOOH BABY! It's really tempting to download everything on that site! If you're having a hard time finding the right software to work with, I'm sure you'll come across something there that will serve your needs!

Free Image Compression Software @ Imageoptimizer: www.imageoptimizer.net/Pages/H… If you have to shrink your images without loosing information in them, but don't know how, this compressor can get them really compressed and with very little information lost!

Free Comic Hosting @ comicfury:comicfury.com If you're looking for an external site to build for your comics, this will certainly wow you! There are no image size limitations at all, and its all COMPLETELY FREE. If you are CSS/HTML savvy, you can customize to your heart's content, or simply choose one of their spiffy skins for a layout!

Free Drawing Lessons @ drawspace:www.drawspace.com/ This is a HUGE collection of drawing curriculum, lessons, tips and tricks for all levels and ages! It's all downloadable and it's all free! Also, you can buy books from them as well, which are much cheaper than what you'd find at Barnes and Noble!

Free Art Lessons @ creativespotlite:www.creativespotlite.com/ This site has it all in terms of art instruction! You can choose just about any medium and level and gain more knowledge or learn a new skill! There are even video previews!

Painting Technique videos on YOUTUBE:www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiWAmq… There are more than 80 "how to" painting videos in that playlist, go watch it now! This particular youtuber www.youtube.com/user/artbytv happens to be a master painter and has good (and LONG) instructional videos on oil painting!

{in addition to all of that, do remember, dA has HUGE stock and reference galleries as well}

Also...:paranoid:


If you're into free instructional e-books...artistdaily.com offers them! All you have to do to get them is join the site as a member (and guess what, that's free too!) New books are added every week, and there are also blogs from the pros on how to improve your studio habits as well as tips and techniques! It's really rich in fabulous artwork and free resources!
aaaand lastly...
here is a blog which regularly compiles useful tidbits for artists across the web---> eyesauce.blogspot.com
