Paintry drawing of Rajah by Aaron Blaise

Aaron Blaise was for 2 decades one of the best animators Disney had on their payroll. He worked on many of Disney’s top animated features of the 1990’s. His credits include “Beauty and the Beast” where he animated Beast, Young Nala on “The Lion King” and the lead character on “Pocahontas” Today he works freelance as an illustrator and is trainer. On his site The Art of Aaron Blaise he gives a demonstration on how Rajah might look like in a painterly fashion drawn digital with Photoshop. Notice that the basic drawing is done in a miniature time and then Aaron spends the rest of the 3,5 minute video fine turning the drawing.
