Color Design

This is a color study that Mary Blair did for Disney's Peter Pan. Mary Blair was a strong force on the Disney look in those days and her influence continues to this day, not only in Disney but in nearly all animation and children's illustration. A master of color design, setting mood and environment, she was never confined to "realism" but rather used color more on an emotional level. For instance, go back and observe the color of her sky in her illustrations and note how the colors make you feel.

I really liked this part of the article, with a nice and interesting topics have helped a lot of people who do not challenge things people should know.. You need more publicize this so many people who know about it are rare for people to know this... Success for you.....!!!
