Well, looks like lots of us are stuck at home for a while. I’ve been seeing a lot of news and newsletters and such reminding people about free resources, announcing new ones fur this new isolated time, and even coronavirus sales.

I’ve been babbling about these in the chat, so why don’t I collect them and post them here. Feel free to post with any you find:

Always legally free:

YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY. It may be physically closed, but there are probably online resources and services you can access from home for free using your library card (they probably have or are working on how to get a new library card right now): Ebooks! Audiobooks! Magazines! Newspapers! Music! Scholarly databases! Photo archives!! Mango Languages! Kanopy! Scienceflix! You'll have to go through your library's website, so do some investigating and see what you can get access to!

Borrowing Ebooks will probably involve using an app like Overdrive or Kindle. See what your library recommends. They may even have their own app.

There may even be huge digitized archives of stuff you wouldn’t be able to go through regularly anyway:

PROJECT GUTENBERG for when you want to access that Public Domain goodness without going through the formality of “borrowing” an ebook or letting Amazon know even more about you:

Is… is this legal? Is it legal that I can play Number Munchers online using this?
Just a wealth of content. I’ve really enjoyed listening to old radio dramas using this.

GOOGLE ARTS AND CULTURE “Visit” museums and famous places! Rotate 3D models of things!

COLOR OUR COLLECTIONS for lineart you can print and color for free!

Don’t forget free creative software!

Free In Honor of Quarantine

The New York Metropolitan Opera will stream opera every night!

Moog and Korg’s synth apps are free for the time being. I know nothing about how these work but you poke at it and it sounds like you know what you’re doing?

Scholastic Learn at Home, for those of you with kids in your family

LUNCH DOODLES with Mo Willems. Also for kids, new episodes every weekday.

QUARANTINE SALES AND SPECIALS! The economy demands money offerings! Its hunger is insatiable and its displeasure makes us quiver!

Not necessarily a personal endorsement, but you’re probably getting newsletters and stuff with these, too, so may as well see if anyone’s interested. Besides, I get a certain amusement out of some of these so I want to make a record:

Until March 19, Jeff Miracola’s Oil and Acrylic Painting Techniques digital downloads are 50% of with the coupon code SCREWTHEVIRUS

Until… March 22 I guess, Beehive Books’ store is 15% off with the coupon code COVID

DavidsTea has free shipping now, if you you’re into loose tea

For the rest of March, get 20% off MaxPacks Procreate brushes with the code: WASHHANDS

Looks like we're gonna be stuck this way for a while, so if you find any good stuff, feel free to share it!

VOID University / Clip Studio Paint -- CLAIMED!
« on: Dec 07, 2018, 03:45 PM »
Update: The code has been claimed!

BTW, I got the code in a Macheist Bundle that as of this update has two more days left on it. CSP is currently not on sale, so it might be a decent way to get a version of it for $25. Otherwise, go ahead and wait for another sale. They happen fairly often.

This counts as a "resource," right?

I happen to have an activation code for Clip Studio Paint Debut. I already have CSP EX, so it won't do me any good.

This is my software of choice and I highly recommend it.

DM me if interested. First come first serve.

Resources & Tutorials / Oekaki Supple
« on: Feb 11, 2016, 06:56 AM »
This is something I bumped into while perusing the Google Play.

It's an Android app called Oekaki Supple. It's primarily in Japanese, and only the first few notes have been translated into English so far.

You can also see these notes and more in Japanese on Pixiv

It's a set of anatomy pointers for artists, many of which specifically address common areas of confusion and flubs that I've seen even more experienced artists make.

(I did a bit of looking and I'm pretty sure this hasn't been posted here yet)

THE INCUBATOR / Flutterbyes' Incubator cha cha cha
« on: May 01, 2013, 10:05 PM »
SO after the excitement of LSDT I'm clearing out what was here before (Hahaha, you can't see the character that FP was basically a robotic version of), trying to come up with a more permanent character... which is hard. Flower Power was a product of my current primary comfort zones and possibly the apex of my meager creative ability.

In the chat earlier today I was throwing around the idea of turning one of these bug motif fairies I drew a while back into a character, probably this one:

She's a wasp motif fairy. I'd imagine she has a certain amount of fairy power and glamour, and the ability to be "normal" sized, but she's mostly an aggressive biker fairy who's been exiled from other fairies and her gang, so she's out of her element and doesn't have quite the backup she's used to getting when she picks fights.

A number of aspects would be wasp-related, but they're not actually a wasp, just wasp motif.

If you're wondering why there isn't a bee motif fairy, it's because I'd already been drawing a lot of bee girls for a while. In fact, I was toying for a while with a character based on this doodle.

PIZZA DELIVER-BEE! Melissa Mellifera is a pizza girl from a big family who.... something something... pizza.

Yeah that's why I didn't go through with it, but I felt like mentioning it here because it still sounds cute to say.
