Art galleries and collections:
Day Dreamer Excellent fan and original
art galleries. She used to have some wonderful anime/manga drawing
tutorials up, but they're hosted by the How to Draw Manga site now.
Sites noted for their design:
bishounen.net Very well done, with
links to other well-designed pages on the site.
Jump-off point for a number of her sites.
Up in Smoke Beautifully
designed Trigun fan page.
Online comics and manga:
Can't Sleep Con Will Eat
Me - Now what sort of self-promoter would be if I didn't push my
own stuff? Don't answer that question.
Eversummer Eve - Online manga by
Denise Jones, who does work for Living Room Games, as do I.
Sites to get books and art supplies:
Blue Line Pro -
Publishers of Sketch Magazine for comic artists, Blue Line Pro also
offers lots of pro comic art supplies and how-to references. I've ordered
stuff from them several times and been perfectly satisfied.
BlamBot Fonts - Free fonts for indie
comics. I used Anime Ace for the more recent issues of Can't Sleep Con Will Eat Me.
How to Draw Manga - A series of books from Japan aimed at the
budding manga artist. I own all the English translations out so far and
they come in qute handy. Like all art books, you need to evaluate the
information that's offered to see whether or not it fits your style, but on
the whole I find them immensely helpful. The site also offers manga
supplies: pens, paper, screen tones, and so forth, and hosts some excellent tutorials on
drawing manga and anime.
