Process and archetype research
TV Tropes website
The TV Tropes website is a very informative yet informal source as it contains information on various topics such as charecterisation, characters, dialog, plot and more.
I particularly found the information on each type of character very useful as it describes all the characteristics of each. This is helpful because if for example I wanted to create an anime character similar to an existing character, I could research what attributes I could use and I could base a character on similar characteristics from the details listed.
Michael Sporn Animation
I found the Michael Sporn Animation website somewhat useful in terms of animation techniques and it assisted me on developing a technique to drawing an animated character.
A very good website for any artist or art enthusiast, it has tutorials on creative techniques, a gallery of art from various artists, news and reviews which is very helpful.
This is an excellent website for artists, an environment where artists can share their art and comment and other rate other artist’s work. Through a website like this, artists can collaborate and share tips etc.
Concept Art World
The Concept Art World website presents the work of some talented artists and illustrators, it is very inspiring just looking at the some of their concept art.
