Dwarfs Revisited



An interesting piece is currently being offered at auction. Fred Moore drew these four dwarfs ( Sleepy, Dopey, Grumpy and Bashful) probably sometime during the late 40s or early 50s.
You can see how Fred's drawing style had changed. 
From round, thoroughly dimensional designs for the original film to spunky, graphic depictions of their personalities. 
Of course I like both approaches, because Fred Moore, at any time, couldn't make a drawing without tremendous appeal. 
So much fun to discover this sketch!

Here's how Fred drew the dwarfs for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs:
