Art resources

My partner is an artist. Shes very good you know! She makes jewelry in real life, sculpting beads from clays and stuff.

Anywhos, was the first page i made for this site, and ive had a look for guides to art packages on Linux. The main programs ive looked for is Gimp, Inkscape, and Blender. All applications on linux, all downloadable from the application directorys in the ‘good application directory’ post on this site ^^
