First off, I'm not sure if this is the right thread, bit it'll help people making sets, so I put it here.
Second off, always give the artist credit. If you can't find the artist (don't forget to look at the art for a signature) at least put the website it's from.
Third off, I hope this helps people in making their cards. Onto the list, feel free to add, I'll update this first post with everyone else's sites just to keep them all in one place for us.
http://images.google.com/imghp?tab=wi- Good old Google image search, gets anything you need almost instantly
http://www.epilogue.net/index.php - Has almost any kind of art you can think of, fantasy, sci-fi, anime and sculptures are the main ones though. You can find almost anything here.
http://www.Digitalblasphemy.com- Using the free gallery you can get some good scenery for lands, and I expect the members gallery to be amazing. All art is done by Ryan Bliss, and there is a user gallery with links to individual artist sites.
http://www.scorpyan.at- German, kind of hard to look around but has some cool futuristic art
http://www.begann.de- MANY MANY MANY LANDSCAPES!!! if you can't find pictures for land here, then I feel bad for you. Also in a foreign language though, so click the links on the side till you find the art.
http://nielsen.sp01.ab-webspace.de/gallery/ - That link exactly has a good amount of landscape a scenery artwork.
http://www.thinktankstudios.com/creatures.html - Creatures. Thanks strokes!
http://fantasygallery.net- Many artists we know and love plus some we don't, this site has alot of fantasy art on it.
http://www.elfwood.com/ - Has alot of fantasy art on it, portraying a more innocent look to cards in my opinion.
http://www.deviantart.com/ - has 44,302,122 pieces of artwork and growing, and I've heard some good things about this and Liked what I saw
http://www.artpromote.com/fantasy.shtml - 19 different categories of fantasy art to choose from, has some good stuff
http://www.tolkienion.com/index2.php - Click images on the left to find the artists (images), should be 6 of them. Pretty good ones here
http://santharia.com/startup_new/mainframe.htm - I love this sight, click on the little icons under the sight logo (top left corner) to select your category, click for another subcategory (a purple name below those icons) then click on any of the red subtitles to select further info on that subject. I like this because not only does it supply art for most of it's subjects, it also gives storylines which can then be tweaked for our own personal use and card ideas. 5 out of 5 for sure.
http://www.nicolecadet.com/ - Hand draw images, theres a small amount of fantasy artwork here over 7 galleries.
http://www.pen-paper.net/artgallery/main.php - 14 pages of different artists names and galleries, each page has 8 or so artists. Recommended. Thanks Lordpenguin!

Forums With Artwork
http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/photoshareartifact/ - Photoshare artifact, it's a yahoo group. members share artowrk and links, and I expect them to have forums like this one
http://forums.mtgsalvation.com/showthread.php?t=38442 - Lots of really good art, but no search, so it's kind of hard to find what you want. Recommended though if your just making your cards off of images.
http://www.advancedanime.com/galleries.php - I havn't looked at this, but my buddy Brian says he likes this sight. At a glance though, ti looks like it doesn't realy have much battle-like anime
http://www.photopix.de/index/weblog/ - I saw this one on another topic, so I jut threw it in here.
