"Bon Appetit" is my newest painting for Wonderground in celebration of Food and Wine Festival in Epcot. If you're in the area, you should stop by and see the festival. It's filled with yummy food and goodness.
For today's tip, I'm posting my painting process. With gouache, I usually paint back to front, general to detail.
With the amazing @peterhanstyle at his show at @centerstagegallery. Swipe to see some of his beautiful drawings and painting.
I love love love costume design. It's one of my favorite part of character design. A good design as always should tell a story and enhance what the character is all about. In CG animation, we have to build everything from scratch. When designing, it's always good to know the basic with the correct names and specifics; it comes very handy especially when we are making guidelines for production pipeline. For today's tip, I'm going to start with my favorite, skirts. More costume cheat sheet coming in the near future.
CAT eyes vs. PUPPY eyes.
This is a painting CHEAT! I know not all cats have light eyes nor all puppies have brown eyes. However a lot of them do and this is an easy way for me to remember. Also, I know that this is NOT how pupil works. Again this is a painting cheat.
In general, light eyes makes me think of cat eyes and I tend to make the pupil smaller to make it appear lighter and more piercing. And for medium or dark iris, I tend to make the pupil a bit larger to make them look cuter and it totally remind me of puppy dog eyes.
This works for me, especially in normal lighting. Happy painting!
