The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more.

A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately.

Tell my hand that... I can visualize but when I put to paper, it's completely wrong! I need to practice some more...

Anyway, had a quick look at the site... It definitely does not suck, but in my opinion, does not rock either. Of course, this is based on viewing one image. Why?

Well, whoever created the site (was it you?) needs to learn to create REAL thumbnails rather than just resize the whole big image using width and height. I'm on a modem connection. Spare me the pain.

same here.

Edge- need to work on your site design man... takes a while to load pictures. SOME of your 2d pencil drawings are great.. very nice. You need to practice more with paints and stay aways form markers.. if you are going to hand color your pictures.. uses waterproof ink and watercolors.. it''s what they usin in comic books.. and it looks nice. IF you paint in photoshop, don''t forget u can turn the layer to "multiple" and the line art will show through the paint. Nice pencil art though.. one day I will learn magna.. and you all will be sorry!! lol,
