Lots of Art Tutorial Links by whitetigerx Lots of Art Tutorial Links by whitetigerx
LOOKING FOR MODERATORS FOR A FORUM ON DEVIANTART, PREFERABLY THOSE WITH EXPERIENCE OF THE JOB. THESE LINKS WILL SOON BE MOVED TO A FORUM.
=============================================================================
People who use these links, please could you take the time to look at and perhaps comment on some of my art just as I have taken the time to put together these links in the first place. It's unbelievable that over 20,000 people have looked at these links, but only 100 of over 20,000 have looked at my DA page.
=============================================================================

This deviation will soon be moved to a blog on my main website, because each of these links needs to be managed properly. Maybe a forum interface may be better with an organised structure for people to easily browse around.

Hello my name is Robert Shelley,I'm a big fan of your site.I always come here to gather insightful
information on comics and creators,I incorporate such things in my site.I love devoting myself to the advancement of young minds hungry for the knowledge of comics.When I was a youth I went to the Joe Kubert school of graphic Arts to obtain knowledge from qualified artists because there was no place to learn the great art of comics and cartoons anywhere.It is my mission to instruct and guide those looking for such information.I just started my site a few months ago and have worked very hard to pack it full of learning content,free of charge for everyone,I do it for the sheer joy of doing. I keep it updated with how-to's ,step by step slideshows and video tutorials along with live video when ever possible.Also I have the most up to date comic and cartooning news on the web updated daily also.Anyways I'll cut to the chase,You have a great site full of content and many people come to your site hungry for the knowledge and love of comics and anything you can do to help me promote my site would be sooo greatly appreciated,anything.Content is no good if no one knows where to go to obtain it.My site is at

Heads up: The "How to Animate" link (Under Digital Art / 3D / Multimedia) is broken.

Under the same heading, "Animation Backgrounds" seems to lead to an artist's portfolio that doesn't seem to lead to any sort of tutorial.
