Default advice how to paint like disney.

I would like to take my characters to the next level by digitally painting them.

I would love to master this particular style!


I have both photoshop & painter x (but I'm certainly no expert when it comes to digital painting.

Any help or advice most welcome!

Craig.

Same here.

I'm thinking it's putting in your flats first and painting with a soft edge brush with other dynamics selected. Under other dynamics, set it up to pen pressure and tinker around with the flow and opacity jitter.

Might also have to decrease the opacity of the brush.

As for line work, I'm not sure if it's hand drawn first, scanned, and cleaned up in Photoshop, or hand drawn first, scanned, and then pen tool/brush tool in Illustrator. Or maybe they did it all on the computer.

That's my guess.

I should also mention that you need to have a understanding of light and shadows too to be able to pull it off. Basic stuff. Cause obviously it's not just about painting in dark and light colors at any random spot.
