Tips For Coloring Cartoon Animals
What colors should I use for cartoon animal coloring pages?
This largely depends on the type of animal you’re coloring and your personal preference. Cartoon animals are often portrayed in bright, eye-catching colors, so don’t feel the need to stick to realistic color palettes. Try experimenting with a mix of cheerful colors to give the characters a fun, vibrant look.
How can I add more details and make my cartoon animals look more three-dimensional?
By adding shading and highlights you can give your cartoon animals a more three-dimensional look. Lighter colors can be used for highlighting the areas where light naturally hits the shape, whereas darker shades help to create a shadow effect. Remember that cartoon characters generally have exaggerated features, so play around with large eyes, exaggerated expressions and interesting textures.
Are there any specific techniques to color cartoon animals?
Yes, there are techniques that can help enhance your coloring. When coloring fur, consider using short strokes in the direction of the fur growth. For larger animals use broad, sweeping strokes for a smoother look. Experiment with different textures and use blending for a seamless transition between colors. Also, don’t forget to outline your cartoon figures to make them pop.
Can you provide some interesting cartoon animal facts I can incorporate into my coloring?
Absolutely! Did you know that the creators of Tom and Jerry won seven Academy Awards for Animated Short Film? Or that Scooby-Doo’s full name is Scoobert Doo? Or that the character of Mickey Mouse was originally named Mortimer, but Walt Disney’s wife encouraged him to change it? Incorporating small details and character-specific traits will not only make your art more interesting, but can also be a great conversation starter.
