I don't know about you, but I am constantly searching the web to try and find out how to do something. Below is a list of links to tutorials and information to creating digital and fine art. I have used many of these sites myself, and have learned a great deal from them. There is some other fun stuff too! I will keep adding to this list until I can't add anymore, so keep watching for new stuff.

Tip: When working with the gradient mesh in Illustrator, I find it much easier to begin by creating the mesh in a basic shape first depending on what shape suits the design you are working on. Start with a circle, oval, square or rectangle, and then add two to four mesh lines. Once you have a simple, basic mesh use the mesh points to make the basic shape fit the shape you want. Once the basic mesh is the way you want it, then you can add more mesh lines.
