This thread is (Or will be) a great place to find font websites, brush websites and much more.

This is only a VERY short list at the moment as I dont have much time right now. I wanted to post it so [B]everyone else can submit there findings.

I guess I will start with font websites.

Font websites
http://www.1001freefonts.com
http://www.dafont.com
http://www.blambot.com (Not all free)
http://www.pizzadude.dk/home.php (Might need to copy and paste the text from the site instead of dowloading as most are not free)

Brushes
http://www.brusheezy.com (Photoshop)
http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/applications/gimpbrushes/#order=9 (GIMP)
http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/applications/gimpbrushes/#catpath=resources/applications/pspbrushes&order=9 (PaintShop Pro)
http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/applications/gimpbrushes/#catpath=resources/applications/psbrushes&order=9 (Photoshop)

I'm not sure if this would be the right place for it but here's my favorite site for finding color groups/themes for projects. You don't need to sign up to get the RGB or CMYK values for the colors either. Very handy. Hope someone can use it.

Sorry - I didn't understand.

It's basically a site from adobe where designers can submit five color sets that other people can use/download for use on their own designs. It's handy if you know you want a winter theme or a fall theme but not sure about the colors to use.

It's a nice resource for color inspiration or for people who aren't good at matching colors.

I work on a Mac so it wasn't a big deal but When I tried the site I had several pop ups blocked and an .exe that was trying to be downloaded. Won't work with the Mac so I didn't worry but there might be something on the site that isn't quite on the up & up.

You should put this in there. They upload new tutorials on a daily basis. I'm subscribed to the RSS.

http://psd.tutsplus.com/

This is one of the recent ones. It's a 50 minute video or written tutorial on how to create this amazing effect.
