I just made this: Automated file-history tracker for *nix after a brief discussion in PJ chat. It watches files and automatically tracks their revisions, in a 'plain directory containing numbered copies of file' format (meaning, in the case of pixel art, you can look through history easily using an ordinary image viewer)
If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.

PDF copy of "Charles Bargue Drawing Course", which has some good info on how drawing was taught in the 19th century.

High resolution copies of the plates can be found here, for anyone who wants to improve their drawing accuracy by doing some Bargue drawings.

Art books in the public domain.
Lowres copies. Bridgman is here.
Harold Speed - The Practice & Science of Drawing.
Dated, LOTTA text, but great drawings intermittently.
Anatomy Studies Demo
^Most of the links are broken. Archived here

Tho this topic isn't updated anymore, better formats exist, and there's zilch demand...I miss it man, so I'll give it two cents. Might be more as I clear out old bookmarks.

BTW, might want to add the Discord link to OP, unless I'm not seeing it.

EDIT: added a couple more old gems. All art there, no tech or game dev yet. I don't think the caliber is high enough for the thread, it's stuff you can search, but they're worth a look. May update, but I don't want to spam this thread.

I don't see Hexels here

It seems a great tool.
