Grown-Up Coloring Book: Rapunzel by kuabci Grown-Up Coloring Book: Rapunzel by kuabci
Photoshop
December 2010

When my tablet was pretty new and I was learning the ins and outs of properly painting in Photoshop I wanted to practice on something, so I found a coloring page of Rapunzel ([link]) and voila. (It later occurred to me that I could do the same thing with my own drawings, which I have also since done.) I love painting my own things, but it's fun now and then to use the (usually) beautiful official artwork, and I think there's value in practicing this kind of painting and such. I would like to point out that I didn't use any textures, all of the detailing in the clothes was done by hand, which was fun, but made me glad it didn't cover the entire skirt, ha. It was fun playing a little with glowing effects on this one, and oh my, so much long blonde hair.

Also, she generally looks great in the movie, but am I the only one who thinks Rapunzel looks better as a 2D character than a 3D one? I'm just saying. There's something in those Glen Keane sketches that's just lost in the CG rendering of her.

Thank you very much! I wish I could take credit for the lineart, but I'll definitely take credit for the painting. :)

Thank you! Although I can't really take credit for the lineart since, as I said, it's an official coloring page I just used for painting practice. But I'm still glad you like it!

Beautiful work on the pose, lighting, etails...everything, simple, and I like the lineart too- it looks so 'clean', or how to express it =)

Thank you! I wish I could take credit for this particular very clean line art, but like I said in the description, it's an official coloring page that I painted. Thanks again!
