What a colors! And all done by hand. So even digital productions require good portion of real paint. I wonder what time it takes to draw one of these thumbnails?

all the backgrounds were still painted traditionally on MULAN, on cardboard with acrylics. and the color keys were done pretty fast, as far as I remember inclusive discussion and changes about 3 days.

Those really are beautiful… so many different atmospheres. Amazing to hear that they painted all the backgrounds! I’ll have to watch it again – never occurred to me to assume that, I guess the digital era isn’t as digital as I thought!

from hans –
it was still ‘pre-digital’, the film premiered june 1998
