Some of you might have watched the Bambi Milt Kahl pencil test I posted a while ago. It was his rough animation of a scene which does not appear in the movie.

And who knows, perhaps through color.
Cutting polished animation or even color scenes is very costly, yet it happens on almost any animated production. Something I try to avoid on Mushka.
