Following CGCookie's "classic paintover" challenge, I opted to paint over a scene from the classic Road to El Dorado. It was quite a fun exercise that wasn't too time consuming. Most of my time into 'erasing' the cartoon linework. If you're a bit slow to catch things, the top picture is an original screenshot from the animated movie, the bottom picture is my edited version.
In case you've never heard of the paint-over challenge, here's the 'rules'.
1) Find a screenshot from a classic animated movie.
2) Paint over it to give it a more realistic feel.cgcookie.com/exercise/exercise…
If anyone expresses interest, I can give you the steps I took to make it, so you too can do mediocre work!
