Friday Art links
I'm sorry it's been a few weeks since I posted some fun friday art links. Here are some that I found this week. I hope you find them inspiring.

Copic Community
First of all, I want to remind you about Copic Community. This is a place where YOU can post any work you've made with Copics. Visit to see what I'm talking about.

Drawing heads
Have you ever wanted to draw realistic heads? This link has a fabulous tutorial that steps you through the rights and wrongs of drawing heads.

Digital Photography Tips
I know that many of you have your own blogs and you take your own digital photos to upload. Dig through this site for some ideas on how to get more from your camera and consistently take better shots. I strongly suggest you read through it! The best blogs out there stand out because their photos are clean and well-planned.
