dA Related Tutorials & Fonts!

    Due to a serious overflow of miscats in the dA Related Tutorials gallery, dA moved the whole thing into Resources: Tutorials. Read this blog entry to get the whole story and to see all the awesome new subcategories in this gallery! It's been expanded for your convenience.

    We're also working on restructuring the Fonts gallery to bring you more professional sounding categories and maybe a few new subcats too in the process! Keep an eye out at communityrelations for future updates, and rest assured that you'll be reading about it here too.

    Got blog worthy news? We want YOUR news! Please send your links and updates to our group notes if you'd like a chance to see your events, articles, contests, and any of your other resource related news in our newsletters!

Resource Artist of the Month

    Each month, we'll highlight a deviant artist that provides resources and shows exemplary community spirit by actively supporting the art community through their resources and other resource-related activities. The current Resource Artist of the Month is...

    JRCnrd has been a member of deviantART since November 30, 2007. Ok, so you won't find the usual stock photos or textures in this featured resource provider's gallery, but you will be amazed! (Delicious tutorials anyone?) His Idiot's Guide to Animating took 1st place my Video Tutorials Contest, and so far he has earned 4 Daily Deviations for his resources. In addition,  JRCnrd's journal is a virtual cornucopia of updates and events for deviantART users.

    His resources come with a few simple rules: 1) He wants credit. 2) This is optional, but he likes to see work produced from his tutorials. Be a dear, and send him the link. 3) Do NOT repost his work. Got it? Great! Enjoy these video tutorials:

    Of course, there's more than just videos. Here are some fabulous examples of JRCnrd's other resources:

    Several artists have been inspired by JRCnrd's resources and activities at dA, but sadly, I found only a few that have actually taken the time to properly credit him. Here's a little look at some deviations that were created as a direct result of JRCnrd's work:

    DeviantART's :devgroups: are a great way to find people with common interests and goals. Here are just a few of the groups where you may find JRCnrd's creative genius:

    The following groups were founded by JRCnrd:

:icontutorial-city: :iconedwardcullenisadisco: :iconpageviewwhores:

    Of all these groups, there are a particular few that really stand out to me as well-known places to find some helpful resources...
  • Tutorial-City: focused completely on tutorials and finding the best ones we possibly can to share with the world.
  • DACipher: created to help artists grow among a group of teachers and other artists in their chosen media.
  • MasterPhotoshop: Find all of your Photoshop Resources needs here.

    DeviantART's news is a place to catch up on all the things going on in the world of art, and more specifically, the world of dA. Here are a few recent news articles from the past few weeks that relate to resources and stock images:    I could also really use some help archiving Resource News Articles. Please, please send a note (Subject: dA Resource News) to tell me about any recent resources related news articles, journals or blogs you find at dA. We want to hear from you!
