Art Tutorials

I am gathering a list of useful online tutorials for digital artists to post on my soon-to-be renovated art site, so people have an easier time directing artists to a nice little archive instead of scrambling over Google to find it. (I feel bad responding to emails that ask me to teach them something, and I cant find a good resource to share with them) If any of you can raid your bookmarks and drown me in any kind of digital art tutorial (Photoshop, OpenCanvas, Painter, Illustrator, etc), it would be GREATLY appreciated. :)

Also, basic tutorials in art/lighting/design/etc would also rock. ^_^
