ART RESOURCES

Chris Oatley.com: The place to be for aspiring animators and concept artists. He also has a podcast specifically for comics, the Paper Wings Podcast. Go here for digital painting resources and classes, critique, and inspiration.

Color Wheel Pro: This site goes into color usage and meaning, including hues of the main colors (example: it describes the meaning of red as well as pink, brown, reddish brown, and other hues).

Figure & Gesture Drawing: Because Pose Maniacs, an old online pose generator, has gotten buggy and laden with viruses, you can use this resource instead. It provides photographs of models (clothed or nude) so you can practice drawing your figures.
