I'm sticking up a new thread where I would like everyone to post some of they're favorite online tutorials and referance sites. I want this thread to be bursting with the most comprehensive index of help you can find.

Just post up the website address (or a hyperlink for easy clicking) and a brief description of what the site offers.

Let's go!!! :banana:

EDIT:
There is getting to be a lot of links here. If you find that any links are no longer working or if there are double links posted--- let me know.
Thanks!

Originally from www.marvel.com

Marvel Test Plot
Guidelines: As penciler, it's up to you to adhere to the plot. Adding details is welcome, but eliminating them isn't. There's no need to ink or letter your samples. Original art size (your work area) is 10-by-15 on an 11-by-17 board. Send the submissions editor photocopies of your pages; include your name, address and telephone number on the top border. All six pages must be penciled; partial jobs will not be accepted. Remember, Marvel publishes comics for an all-ages readership.
Send your sample copies and a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:
Submissions Editor
Marvel Enterprises, Inc.
10 East 40th St.
New York, NY 10016
Get busy!

Page One
Establishing interior shot of a ritzy Manhattan penthouse apartment. Peter Parker and Mary Jane are attending MJ's model-friend, Tara's trendy party. An assortment of artsy types are there (models, agents, actors, fine artists, club dancers, etc.). MJ is enjoying herself, but Peter looks out of place and uncomfortable. Peter is being pestered by Tara's yapping little poodle.

Page Two
Peter (annoyed) escapes the poodle by going out onto the balcony. The balcony is a lush garden with a wide assortment of plants.
He relaxes, watching the guests (including MJ) dancing inside.
Then his spider-sense warns him of danger from above!
Peter ducks behind a large garden box, ready to change into Spider-Man if need be.
Mr. Hyde and two armored bandits (your design) drop/swing down onto the garden balcony. The bandits ready their laser pistols.

Page Three
The badguys charge through the glass door into the party. Two realistically clothed/armored security guards rush forward to protect the guests.
The bandits take out the guards.
The party guests are ordered to the floor. Tara fearfully clutches her poodle. Some panicky guests offer their valuables. MJ is angry, but compliant.
Mr. Hyde walks purposely past his men, up to MJ. He doesn't want loot...He wants Mary Jane!

Page Four
Mister Hyde is obsessed with MJ and has come for her. She is repulsed by him, but not afraid. They argue.
2 Panel Sequence:
Panel 2 - Hyde facing us (trying to be charming). His men are behind him. The men are reacting to something slapping them on the back. We can't see it, but it's Spidey's webbing.
Panel 3 (end of sequence) - Same angle: Hyde surprised as his goons fly backwards, toward the balcony. They drop their weapons.
Hyde, enraged, turns around to see Spidey on the balcony, neatly webbing up the armored goons.

Page Five
Hyde lunges at Spider-Man like a wild animal.
MJ has to rein in her emotions to protect her husband's secret identity.
Hyde tackles Spider-Man in mid-leap, sending them both off of the balcony, twenty stories above 5th avenue. Hyde laughs maniacally--He doesn't care!
Hyde and Spider-Man fight as they fall to the street

Page Six
Spider-Man kicks free from Hyde while, at the same time, spinning webs with both hands (while still free-falling).
Spidey swings back up to safety on his line. The web line he attached to Hyde (anchored to a building) acts as a bungee cord, slowing his fall.
Hyde bounces headfirst onto the avenue below (knocking him silly).
Last Panel: Hyde still helpless on web line while police show up. Spidey watches in background.

If you haven't already heard about this--- check it out. It is just fascinating. Also referred to as the Golden Mean, the Magic Ratio, the Fibonacci Series and Phi. It is a ratio that is found everywhere from the spirals of galaxies to the spiral of a seashell, from music, nature, art and math.
Michelangelo, Raphael, and Leonardo da Vinci used it in they're art and Mozart, Beethoven, and Bach used it in they're art.

I've been using blue line pencils as of late (over the last three or four weeks) and then knocking out the blue. Below is a sample of how I go about doing this. Granted this doesn't work for something that you are planning not to ink and it doesn't help the actual original drawing to look all fancy but, for me, it makes the art I have on the computer look a lot cleaner. Also won't work if you're working with ink washes or various tones, only for straight black ink.

Oh yeah, almost forgot. Once I've done all that, I convert the image to grayscale because it'll cut the file size down considerably once it doesn't have to read all those colors.

Hope that's helpful.

Very nice.

Proko (http://www.proko.com/) is an excellent site with figure drawing tutorial videos. I haven't tried the premium version, but the stuff that's available free is a great way for beginners to learn, or to help more experienced artists correct their sloppy habits. It's geared towards life drawing but contains information that should be helpful to anyone who draws figures.

Gurney Journey (http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/) is a daily blog by Dinotopia artist James Gurney. He covers lots of art-related topics, and includes lots of gems you might not run across otherwise. I especially like his information about nineteenth-century academic artists - the "bad guys" in the modernism-worshiping art history I was taught - who brought representational art to perhaps its highest peak.

This can be a bit confusing to navigate due to it being in french, but has some amazing solutions that I've never seen anywhere else. Also, it is re-posted from twitter which I don't have on this machine, that probably doesn't help.

It works best if you can get to the 'slide-viewer' for each bit.

Highly recommended!!
