Webmaster El Dorado - Free high quality photos.

UPDATE : The site seems to have been pulled off the web :(

Nice source of photographs which are for free, said to be collected from USENET News. There are over 19,000 images available. A bit outdated as the gallery was last updated in Oct 2000

When one door closes.... Check out YotoPhoto, a search engine for free to use stock photos and images.

Plus some others in previous posts
Bubl Links Internet Resources' Image Collection
Tasi :: Image Sites

Update : Oct 5, 2006 : Found a list of free photo sites on Lorelle's blog.


  1. Hi!
    I liked your blog - and have reviewed it already.

    I've been checking out various of your links, and all are good stuff except for the Webmaster one (with 19,000 free photos). The link you gave goes to a blank page, and a google search for the Webmaster ElDorado site got me nowhere.

    Can you give me the current URL of the site?



  2. Went and checked out the link it doesnt work anymore :( and sorry I dont have another link for it. However, I have found a new site and pulled out several others that i made earlier in this site. Hope they help.

Learning to draw

A couple of days back there was comment asking for help on starting to draw and paint. I'd asked him to join the WetCanvas! Classroom forum and to look up some additional sources from this site.
This morning I got a newsletter from drawspace . I find that it is growing to be a wonderful online resource for drawing lessons. These are divided into 3 levels - beginners, intermediate and advanced. drawspace also has a forum which is slowly growing and the activities are focussed on drawing with pencil, charcoal, color pencils and pen & ink. All the lessons have been written by one person and you have a choice of viewing it for free online or downloading the pdf version for a small fee. Brenda Hoddinott whose lessons populate this website is amongst other things a self taught artist. She is currently working on a new website along similar lines for Fine Art.

Today, Mayank has got an update with details of this site as an alternative and few other suggestions one of which I shall put …

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain

Betty Edwards book has been a huge success. While putting together the last but one post I found a thread on the CGTalk forum based on the exercises in the book. Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain was the first book on drawing that I purchased and it got me started. This was over two years ago but I haven't got around to finishing the exercises in the book. I'm hoping to do so sometime soon and this thread will come in handy then.
