Some various resources that I thought might be useful. I'll expand and update this poster soon, it's getting late.

Camera Shot Composition

Photography: The Rules Of Composition
Still some useful info for scene composition.

Animation: The Art of Layout and Storyboarding Book Download 82.81 MB pdf
A nice book with lots of good info. Check this one out!

If you know of a good resource, post it!

Some art resources. Some of you have probably seen these before, but I'm posting anyway:

Some old TS comics.
Most of them are really well-drawn and look professional. I wouldn't mind if we used the same format as these.

Original character modelsheets
I believe these are the actual ones Disney used on the original series. Pretty cool.

Well, they ARE official comics. So of course they look professional. I doubt we can get the same quality as any of this (on the art side), but at least we can aim for that.

There should be a bunch of text links. If you click on the text it should bring up the associated picture. At least that is how it works for me.

Thanks for sharing all these great art resources everyone, I really appreciate it! I've downloaded a guide for making comic books, and now I just have to read through it and post the most useful parts. From what I've seen so far, it'll be pretty useful. (Coming soon...)

Well, I couldn't decide on any specific pages... the whole book is really good! So here's the whole thing for download:

Scott McCloud - Making Comics (66.08 Mb, pdf, 273 pages)

It's fun to read too because it's written in the form of a comic itself. Be sure to check this one out! (I'm also uploading a jpg version if anyone prefers separate page scans rather than a single pdf.)
