There are so many amazing resources for digital artists out there, but keeping track of them is a major pain. This is why The Rookies has set out to create a helpful Resources Database that will help you find what you need.

Our plan is to manage the database and keep everything up to date so you don't have to worry about it. The format is super simple and no fuss so you can get the links quickly and start finding new software, websites and hardware to help improve your creative and technical skills immediately.
