Lilo & Stitch

One of my favourite Disney films and TV shows was definitely Lilo & Stitch. It was cute and heartfelt and gave lessons about finding a place in the world. The animators/designers of the show  chose to use watercolor painted backgrounds for Lilo & Stitch, as opposed to a more traditional technique called "gouache." Watercolors have been used in the past on Disney animation shorts as well as some features like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs but it has been abandoned within the past few decades mostly because there have been less complicated techniques (such as gouache)The character designs were based around Chris Sanders' personal drawing style and the film's extraterrestrial elements, such as the spaceships, were designed to resemble sea life.
