Thankyou! That was really helpful- I tend to draw straight on canvas and as I'm a leftie it smudges everywhere. I'll have a look out for the those paints- I've got cheap acrylics and cheap brushes so that's probably not helping my limited painting endeavours.

Yeah I used to draw on the canvas and I'd get soo mad when you could see smudges through the finished work. I forgot to mention that when I use the carbon paper, i usually touch up the design on the canvas with pencil, since the carbon can sometimes transfer unevenly Smiley
Its so worth it to invest in some high quality gear. The paints are just so rich and beautiful, and if you're going to do all that work, you don't want your paints letting you down. as for cheap brushes, well to me cheap = shedding and OMG i hate trying to pick out hairs from wet paint. You don't need the top of the line brushes either, but just make sure they don't shed Smiley If you're going for that perfect, brushstrokeless block of colour, nothing ruins it faster than gouging out shed hairs.

That lucky baby is going to grow up thinking that Miyazaki himself painted those!

My thoughts exactly! Those are perfect!

Wow!  They're amazing!  (I thought you had done them in cel paint because of the opacity and brightness of the colors.)  Cel paint is sooooo much easier to work with than multiple coats of acrylic....of course, paint on cel acetate (or clear/white acrylic backing) not canvas...
Same effect, less work.

Just a tip from an animator trained in Japan!:-)  (And I'd recommend the TOEI line of paints not the Chromacolour ones...since you'd be creating the anime characters it'd just be easier to use the same standard colors they use in Japan!:-)

Lovely work!

wow, cool, thanks for the information! I know absolutely nothing about cell paint. I wonder if I could even find the supplies for that locally... so basically you paint on a special clear acetate with a specific formula of paint? and it coats evenly with just one coat? man, that sounds really fun actually... it'd be neat to frame something like that in one of those frames with the double glass (you know, the ones where you can see right through the frame). hehe thanks for the great info!!
