Studies of Alice



I don't know who drew these Alice poses, but the original artist is Marc Davis. Either a clean-up artist or a rough in-betweener traced off a few of Marc's key animation drawings. 
This kind practice gave follow up artists the opportunity to get to know the character in terms of shapes, lines and volumes. 
Quite a few studies like this one survived from Disney's golden and silver age. It was very common to study the lead animators' art, before adding assistant work. They are mere tracings, but I detect a pretty good understanding of the delicate realism involved in a character like Alice.

  1. I guess if they were assisting Marc Davis, they could draw for themselves pretty competently

  2. They did a great job, not skipping the subtle area between the cheek and the jaw, little things like that are important details.

  4. I find her and Wendy from Peter Pan the hardest to keep on model.I always jump in thinking "I'm gonna nail it". and I struggle every time.I am always impressed at how they kept both characters pretty straight with all of the mayhem going on around them. Thanks for sharing these.

  5. If you can master drawing Alice on model, you can draw any Disney character. She is probably the most deceptively difficult character to draw in practice.
