Edit: 2018-05-03 : Decided to keep renewing this resource post as I find new things. So whenever I add something new, it'll be bolded. When it gets renewed again I'll unbold the old and bold the new to keep it orderly for those that check back. 

I'd like to share my resources with you guys in case it helps at all. Some of these are well known but just in case.

A place to pin your references and then have them sit on top of your art program
Good for pulling a palette from an image and condensing it down to the essentials.


Updated notes: 

Everything I list here are things I've found to be personally helpful in one way or another. I know there are compilations hovering around of resources but I'm curating these myself. I know many-many other places to get information, so if it isn't here, it's likely that I either: 

a) Didnt give it a shot yet or really looked at the book or series to get anything out of it.
b) I've seen it, looked through it but ultimately didn't find it helpful right now or in the long run.
c) I don't actually know about it yet.

Morrigan [2018]
My Morrigan for this year. I didn't pre-plan this one at all but I just knew i didn't want her to be sitting I drew her attacking. I think a bigger emphasis this year personally and within the morrigan drawing is just my use of color. I've been more open to the idea of color theory and experimenting around to figure out what I like.

Still made it with mspaint. Still enjoy using it for this stuff. And this is the 10th year. I really do encourage anyone reading to go through the timeline below to see the weird evolution of how things progressed. 

Having said that I should do a benchmark with a different program entirely. XD  But I'll still keep this up just because. 

Here's the timeline:
