some more from universal/amblimation dec.1995 released BALTO. an outlined bear in one color would have looked too cartoony, too much detail in the fur too expensive to animate, too realistic and it would have flickered. this is what I came up with as a solution, just animated highlights in two different colors. the last one is a color continuity sheet with changing light during the sunset. all felt pen and gouache on top of SIMON WELLS xeroxed storyboard drawings.

this also reminds me of how they staged the deer fight scene in bambi. it turned suddenly from soft, beautiful scenes to violent, almost abstract colors and silhouettes. and they made it work too.

The poses also remind me of Glen Keane’s bear in ‘the fox and the hound’
