Disney Line and colour walkthrough by GrandMaster-J5 Disney Line and colour walkthrough by GrandMaster-J5
Hiya Deviants!

Not sure how much of a tutorial this is, as it's just to show how I work with some of my images.
Each job I do can be very different (as you'll see in my gallery), so this is just one way, for one style.

I've tried to explain it in a way that will work for people that work with a mouse too, and not just a tablet.

I've also tried to explain WHY I do some of the things in places too, so I hope it's not too much waffle :D

There are probably plenty of ways to get to the same end result, this is just the one that I use :)

Sorry that it's a bit boring, and the airbrush part was REALLY hard to explain without being in a video :(

It's also a bit rushed as I had to squeeze it between jobs, and internet issues, so please excuse any bad spelling etc. :D

I really hope it helps some of the peeps on here though.

p.s. :- I know Bambi has a missing foot. I used a pic from the book I was working on :P

This tutorial looks wicked cool. I'm trying to do the Disney line art style and I never thought of using the pen tool. It certainly looks like the Pen tool can produce some more better lines so I'll try using them sometime. :) Very nice work!

Amazing tutorial! I learned a lot of tricks I can apply to my own vector work. You explained the reasoning behind your actions very well, making it very applicable to a number of different programs and methods.

(To anyone who happens to be reading this comment: A lot of this, if not all of this, will also work in GIMP. You will have to access different menus to get the job done, but GIMP has a lot of the same functions.)

Thank you. I'm really glad if it helped in any way!
I'd only had a small go of GIMP before, so I knew it was close to photoshop, but wasn't sure how helpful it would actually be when I made this :D
