Crafting Links

A note from the admin
As you can see, this page is a mess. It should probably be split up into several component sections or even pages, cleaned, and expanded. However, I simply do not have the expertise to do this well - my own focus is on digital painting, and I am out of my depth here. Yet I still want this page to be better so that it can be a useful resource to other kinds of artists as well. Thus, I strongly encourage anyone with the relevant knowledge to improve this page on his or her own. Future seekers of tutorials on these subjects will no doubt be grateful. ;) - jhubert

This is still not ideal, but it's a start. I wanted to edit this at least quickly to give it some sort of structure and organization. -rburke
