Pinocchio Art II


Atmospheric studies and layout sketches from Disney’s film Pinocchio show a level of sophistication and dedication that leaves the viewer mesmerized. There is attention to detail, but nothing is over-noodled. The lighting compares to Rembrandt’s work. Disney artists were on a high, following the incredible success of Snow White. 
Long before photoshop and cintiq tablets, these drawings were carved out on paper surfaces with PENCILS. I know, how ancient. 
But look at the feeling and love for the medium in these incredible images. They date back to a time when giving all you’ve got was required and even demanded from Disney. 

Breathtaking work like his was being produced on a daily basis at the studio. It is still unparalleled, to this day. But…what an inspiration!!

  1. I can just imagine the artist drawing this having black all over the sides of their hands from the pencil. Just amazing with this sketches. It's just amazing using classic art mediums with these animated movies back in the day. I mean looking at the charcoal on Monstro was so terrifying to watch his movements on screen as a kid. I feel like with a movie I am developing on my own I may go to the ancient way to do animation by pencil and paper instead of computers.
    When you animated Hercules, did you go back from older Disney movies for ideas to animate the character?

  4. It's amazing how a little pencil and a blank paper can be used to create something so beautiful and dynamic.
