First of all, if you are posting a question about how to improve your artwork, you must post examples of your failed attempts so we can see what you're doing wrong. Don't be shy about it because it's vital to helping you grow as an artist.

If you have general questions about techniques and theory, do a search or check this list below, since some of the same questions and discussions keep popping up in this forum. I've made this F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions) for people to refer to and to reply to instead of starting new threads with the same topic.
