A few originals by Heinrich Kley, offered at various auctions. The last image recently at Heritage. If I had my pick, I'd choose the first one, it looks like a master animation drawing. So effortlessly scribbled down. As I pointed out earlier, the Disney animators didn't have such knowledge of anatomy when working on the centaurs for Fantasia's Pastoral sequence. Today Kley's work is still the standard when it comes to depicting fantasy characters with realism.
A small gallery of Chuck Jones sketches from some of his short films or otherwise. I love the kind of tension going on between lines and volumes. He is always trying for the "Unusual", making what might seem ordinary look extraordinary. And personality is the key, as well as entertainment. The energy found in his work just floors me. There is something to be learned from every Chuck Jones drawing, which makes him a master draughtsman in a classical sense.
A few more vintage pages with character designs by the great Ferdinand Hovarth, who worked at Disney from 1933 - 1937. He put his mark on many short films during that time as well as on the upcoming Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. More info on Hovarth here:
1. Draw an Egg, soft pencil, pay special attention to the shadows
2. Draw a piece of popcorn make it fill or go off the paper. Use your water soluble media.
3. Make a ballpoint pan drawing, build up the values with hatching and crosshatching.
