Combat Sim Randomizer and Generators for artists

Sometimes I get stuck and frustrated, I don't know what topic to choose for painting or sketching. To resolve that problem, I find generators to be an useful thing, here are some of them:

City generator
Character generator
Lots of various generators

So here is very simple script that gives you 3 random numbers according to Autodestruct's Combat Sim 1 Virtual Art Director (read his very very cool article about concepting!). Just open it in a browser and press "refresh" to change numbers. Hope it helps))

Free Digital Painting video tutorials

Here are some great tutorials you should see. What I value the most - not just showing a process of good painting, but also explaining WHY and HOW.

3D Lizard Head

My attempt to Blender Sculpt mode. At first it was really annoying, cause everything seems so much different from 2D painting, but after a while... well it got a little better and interesting) Hope to make more creepy creatures)))

Anatomy resources for self-study

Here I want to share with you some stuff which I use to study human anatomy ) I also would like to clean the mess in my resources and categorize it, so I could go back to this post in future and add more usefull information.
Don't forget to use knowlege from these books and lessons  in  drawing and painting people from life. This way you will transform 2D schemes of muscles into 3D understanding of human body.
Good luck!

Hey, wellcome to my little Blog ^_^

Still not sure what I'm going to write about here, but I hope to make my blog at least a little  usefull )))
