Resources for Digital Artists, Concept Artists and Designers

Here is a collection of some of my personal favourite sites to frequent. Consider it a companion list to the Illustration Resources page that I posted previously. I have personally benefitted from all of these links concerning a wide range of needs. Please enjoy these sites and may they bring you many tools of inspiration to do some great art.


Communities


The Round Tablet - a digital art landing pad with lots of free tutorials, brushes, inspiration, articles and options to submit your art.
Layer Paint - partnered with 3D Total this is a great resource for digital artists with loads of free tutorials, resources, forums and galleries.
Gumroad - a fantastic storefront for artists to share their tutorials and price them however they wish according to singles or packages.
