While I'm pretty sure it would be better to use some of my own art to improve my digital colorization skills, a while ago I heard of people using coloring book pages to use as a quick jumping-off point for practice. Having seen and loved Disney's Tangled, I thought I would look up some Rapunzel graphics to practice on. (Can I just say here how much I love seeing these characters officially in the classic hand-drawn style?) Those who know me know how much I was hoping Disney would make an animated film of Rapunzel, and how much more I wanted to have a part in its production. As it is, I'll have to settle to participate as an entertained viewer, but that doesn't mean I can't do some Rapunzel art of my own (and decidedly better than the concept artwork I did in 9th grade).
So, here are my fairly finished pieces:
|Rapunzel! The glowing effect seemed kind of primitive for some reason during the process, but I like how it makes her hair look like it's glowing.|
|Flynn! I kind of hurried through this one, especially the background, but I like how it turned out anyway, it's kind of cool in contrast to the warmth of the Rapunzel piece.|
I do have some Rapunzel drawings that I actually sketched myself, and soon I'll post some of those, and I promise that I do have some original characters and sketches on the way as well.
