As many have requested and asked me for, here are the links that i have posted everywhere that i think the modern artist should be looking at for inspiration, references and anything else related to art development. Most of these links are from/about professionals in various practices and have proven their worth in their field through various published, accomplished and honored works. There is nothing definitive here and I shouldn't be responsible for any lost hours or hair that will result due to the reading of the links below. Results also may vary but who cares right? Yeah. Be a good boy or girl and feed your artsy needs with these gourmet servings and you'll be a fat-ass aficionado in no time.
