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.
