Pretty sure we've posted the LevelUp! Sessions here before, but this episode with Shaddy Safadi in particular has some really important information IMO:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wN4GYIx12o
It's especially geared towards concept artists, but I think it's something all artists can pull some wisdom from. I think this is the first episode where someone actually taught instead of just running through their painting process.

There is a laminated picture of a painting at my mom's house, I always tried to remember searching it when at my computer. I just had that flash and this painter I would say is one of the last old masters. I think he is my favorite to study now.

His paintings are just crazy, I just can't believe it. :shock:

More gold for ya guys.

I've been following this guy in Instagram for awhile and just recently found out he had a Youtube channel, Mr. Jake Parker:
https://www.youtube.com/user/jakeparker44

This guy is Will Terrell's old sketchin' buddy, and a pretty cool artist, Brandon Green:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpNyol ... lh8X9QDdkw
(P.S. I told him to change his channel URL to something easier to type so this might update later)

Just a neat concept artist, and former Disney Animator(2D), Aaron Blaise:

I'll try to contribute with something a bit different:

A link full with tutorials on color management and photography: http://ninedegreesbelow.com/photography/articles.html
You don't really have to bother with this but it can help, if you are on your way to sell prints, for example.

I've posted his YT channel before, but that's ok since you're posting a specific video from it. He has a whole gumroad video on shading btw:

Is it me or half of his images are broken? I've checked this tutorial a year or so ago, the images were fine.

These are not just "eastern art" btw, they are specifically Chinese artists, my favorite :). Take note of the videos that pop up in the side bar too, there are plenty of them, the first 2 assortment channels should have links to most of them though.
