Disney Roughs

A bunch of Disney rough animation drawings to show the various drawing styles of the animators.
As usual Ollie Johnston has a light touch in his work, allowing him to animate faster than most other animators (he spent less time in each drawing.) The first three images are by him.

Fred Moore's loose energy and confidence are evident in this rough of Doc.

Bill Tytla drew the scenes with the dwarfs before and during Grumpy's bath outside.
Terrific animation, but drawings like this one need a top clean up assistant to add detail.

Eric Larson indicated on the right side how part of Cinerella's dress should flow. This is important information for the in-betweener.

The beaver from Lady and the Tramp examines the log-puller.

A John Lounsbery rough of King Hubert. the shape language is very close to Milt Kahl's.

A powerful pose of Maleficent, not by Marc Davis, but by animator Amby Paliwoda, who I believe didn't get any credit on Sleeping Beauty.
