lost treasures

4 05 2010

a while ago I started with the layouts of another book project, LOST TREASURES. below you can see the first 54 pages ( as double-pages ). the plan was to showcase all my recreated backgrounds from the ‘golden years’ of traditional animation, and from all the major feature films and shorts from that time. I am not sure if it ever will be finished, but it is fun to plan the whole thing.

this book looks very interesting.
Those bg are true piece of art.
If they really lost this book has to be made to preserve them.
A book could be also a good source of education for new bg artists.

What was the plan for the book?
How many pages all together and what backgrounds did you
want to put in it?

I would eat this book up in no time if you finished it! Background art is an incredibly important part of animation and I feel that there isn’t enough material covering this. I’ve got plenty of animation books, but barely anything on background art!

Oh my god! Please please please finish this book, I already have dream worlds which is really a dream but this would go even beyond that. I love those Baia backgrounds and I’ve never found any high-res pics of them. You are a colour magician Mr Bacher! Thanks for making this world more beautiful with your art!!!
