Hi there! quite new here, just wondering if anyone can direct me to a place where i can learn how to draw disney style? specifically stuff like Tarzan, Hercules, Mulan... etc etc. Much appreciated!
Here are the google results for How to Draw Disney
Tons of good links. The top one is an instructional video: http://www.ehow.com/video_4979290_dr...haracters.html
At the time of this post there were also some youtube and metacafe video tutorials in the first page of search results.
The REAL place to start is to learn the basics of anatomy, light, shading, form, volume, composition etcetera and then follow some of the tutorials that cater specifically to Disney animated style.
Hope that helps
http://sevencamels.blogspot.com/ has some very very good material on simplified (or not) drawing, the rules that work in such drawing and so on - Mark Kennedy is a storyboarder at Disney, and used to be an animator, so he knows the stuff. Read it from the very start (oldest first) so you don't miss things, he revisits the topics he already posted about.
http://artofdisney.canalblog.com/ - this one has very good examples of Disney pre-production artwork, designs, concepts, sculptures, char sheets, color storyboards, storyboards, etc. Good stuff to study.
http://characterdesign.blogspot.com/ has good examples character designs of various styles, some quite Disneyish. May also be worth a visit.
[Edit] Ah, right... Walt Stanchfield's gesture drawing notes can come in handy aswell: http://www.floobynooby.com/pdfs/gest...ranimation.pdf

google a guy called Preston Blair he did an awful lot of work for disney and has a few books out that you could get hold of, its mostly cuddly animals and dancing elephants and stuff like that but its disney, (possibly drug related with the dancing elephants !) lol
...and make sure you know how to draw with a brush and ink. I don't know if it still holds true, but when I was licensed, all Disney characters HAD to be done with a brush--no pen or markers.
