Copy anime style

I impressed by anime and MOBA characters. So I decided to study different outline and coloring styles by copying references. I find reference images on pinterest boards. Then create outline in Photoshop by pen tool - creating path and then convert to brush style (great tool!). And then did grayscale base. And finally color on Color layer. Works fine as for me.

Sketching

Just review some interesting images from my pinterest boards and copy/study them.

Disney classic outline and coloring style study

I did this part just for fun and studying pen tool in Photoshop. All outlines were created with pen tool by hand, no brushes or styles.
Sure I used reference as base for outline. Reference on left side and my result on right side.


Big thank's to Dizney Khan for this video tutorial. I used tips from the video a lot.
