Daarken’s Youtube – Â concept artist for Mythic Entertainment, just discovered his stuff last night. Some great multi-part videos here.
Bobby Chiu : watch him paint and listen to him talk about art. Inspiring!

YouTube – Applying Texture Without Looking Like a Douche – tricks for adding textures in Photoshop
