Jungle Vultures II

Here is part II of Milt's incredible scene which involves all four vultures. Those two posts only show a few of the main key drawings. From what I can tell, Milt did about every other drawing, twelve drawings for each second. His assistant (likely Dave Michener) then added in-betweens, so the action would be on ones, resulting in twenty-four drawings per second. 
Whatever you think about Milt Kahl as an animator, that man worked HARD! Not only is the intricate animation perfect, each single drawing is a masterpiece in design, and so full of personality!

  1. What are these drawings colored with? They are beautiful, but it does seem a little unusual that they are colored.

    1. Color pencil, in order to clarify the complex wing shapes to the ink & paint department.

  2. you'd think with all the rough feathers and hair that they'd be impossible to stage clearly. Nuts.
    I guess the coloured pencil wouldn't show up on the xerox?

  3. Who came up with the concept that the vultures should look like the Beatles?

    1. They don't really look like the Beatles, except for the long hair on three of them. But it's true, originally they were thinking about casting the Beatles, until Walt Disney stopped it from happening. He supposedly said that it would date the movie, since nobody will remember the band members in a few years!!
