masterdrawings 1

three stylistically very different disney animated feature films and three layout-drawings created by masters. THE BLACK CAULDRON is not necessarily one of my favorite films, but it had some interesting preproduction artwork and some amazing layouts, like the first one below from around 1983, drawn by MIKE HODGSON. the next pan, drawn by the head of layout himself – DON GRIFFITH -, is from 101 DALMATIANS, around 1960. I wrote before about the RONALD SEARLE influenced style that KEN ANDERSEN had developed. and the last stunning pencil-‘painting’ was created by TOM CODRICK for BAMBI, around 1941/42. it is the 2.level of a multiplane set-up with another foreground and a BG-level below.

MIKE HODGSON is one of those layout artists we don’t hear that much about , but he’s really good. He did a lot of work for the Baer studio when I was there and I just remember staring at his layouts marveling at how beautiful they were.

These are all beautiful examples of layouts. Thank you for sharing these.
