Resources by AndreasWerchmeister Resources by AndreasWerchmeister
I thought about making a journal with some of the resources I use, but I decided to make it a deviation as it might reach more people. But I hope you folks will find some of this useful! If you have any other good resources, please share them.

Must watch

    [link] - Dreamers by Bobby Chiu - If this doesn't get you motivated, I'll mail you a pie.
    [link] - Getting Better at Painting by Matt Kohr - This adresses the frustration and competitive nature of art.
    [link] - Loosen up by Matt Kohr - This video is about how to improve your confidence while painting
Video tutorials
    I have watched a lot of video tutorials, but these were some that I found particularly useful. Addressing composition, painting technique, speedpainting, use of textures and how to properly render light and shadows.

Instructual sites
    [link] - Ctrl+Paint - There's a lot of great videos on this site, but the ones I would recommend watching, at least for beginners, are the 5 videos under Art theory and Self education [link]
    [link] - The Gnomon workshop
    [link] - Enliighten
    [link] - Conceptartmasters
    [link] - Sycra
