Some good web sites

I've been searching the web a lot lately looking for art sites that feature pencil drawings, especially looking for sites that have tutorials within their site. I found three sites that are very different from each other, but I liked what they featured.

The Celtic Knot site
There is a nice tutorial in making Celtic knot drawings, and there is a font program that can be purchased that you can type in the design in most art software. I liked it because these celtic knot drawings can accent or frame almost anything you want to draw.

Artists: Sushrut Chelwat & Ujjwal Agarwal

This site featured some of the most detailed pencil drawings in their gallery that I think I've seen to date. (I've been to 100's of sites lately and the artwork here really stands out). You can also submit drawings to the site. There is also a small tutorial within the site.

Doug Compton's Karmatoons
This site featured classic cartooning and animation. There is a neat tutorial (all handwritten and illustrated by Doug) that features the basics of cartooning and animation. I printed out the whole tutorial and am going to go through it myself (at work, of course)

The following drawings I drew a couple of years ago. American artist magazine was featuring an article which featured life study drawings from Robert Liberace.

Adult Colouring Pages Free to Download

Adult Colouring Pages Adult colouring books are becoming more popular, and as their popularity grows so does the price tag. I just went and bought one for my wife and the price was well over $30 CAD. That's pretty steep as far as I'm concerned. 
I bought it because I was hearing all the benefits of colouring for relaxation, mindfulness, and the like. I like to draw, and I am well aware of the benefits of drawing, but whether the benefits of drawing are similar in colouring I won't say for sure. You may want to read the article "Are You Having a Relationship with an Adult Coloring Book" in Psychology Today to gain further insight on the subject. 
After paying the steep price for an adult colouring book, I thought I would search the web to find anything on the subject, and possible free to download colouring pages. And, well, there is tons of stuff out there. Two sites that I found are quite good and have lots of pages that you can download for free. Davidrd Colle…
