Arrow Helpful art links

This thread is dedicated to gathering links to Web sites (including some fabulous Wet Canvas links and Articles) with info for learning how to draw .........

The majority of these links are a condensed version of Jet's ** DRAWING FAQs ** + STOP + thread and full credit is going to him for starting the original thread and also to others who have made contributions!

I have condensed this thread to just text links so it will be easier for members to find all the links in one post instead of wading through the 9 full pages of the old one.


PS: If you find a broken link let a moderator know so it can be fixed or deleted
PSS: Please make sure links submitted to this thread are applicable to this forum! Not all links will be added as we don't want too much info on the same subject or links to other web sites that have a list of links.

Re: Helpful art links

One of my all time favourites covering every aspect of drawing, but concentrating on face and figure....free to download, are Andrew Loomis's art books.
Regards, Deirdre (Always pleased to get C&Cs!)[b] Don't forget - comment on other threads in the forum as well as posting your own work - also, we encourage you to post WIPs, they help others to learn as well as you.
