Shadow? Shadows occur when an object obstructs the path of light. The shape of the shadow is determined by the shape of an object and is a direct result of light passing the edge of the object casting the shadow.

In 2D animation, the characters are all individual drawings, so giving your character a new costume is simply a matter of designing the new costume and then drawing it on the character. 3D is different because it's much more difficult and expensive to design multiple costume changes for the characters. But even so, costume changes for animated Disney characters is rare, and always have been, even in the 2D films.

A series of standing-room only workshops on drawing by hand has led to a new and thorough, 304-page tome on the topic. Mark Baskinger, a professor of industrial design at Carnegie Mellon, and Will Bardel, an information design consultant, have published Drawing Ideas to bridge a number of knowledge bases out in the marketplace.
