Art Style 3


  • dark gray outlines and shadows on characters.
  • Minimal line details on character clothing - no folds, seams, etc. except where necessary
  • shadows and outlines are the same color, so that shadows become part of the outlines
  • character colors are super-saturated - very bright, almost unnatural colors for lit areas
  • muted colors for background - makes the characters pop off the image.
  • lighter gray shadows for backgrounds - colors are more de-saturated so the characters "pop" off the background
