Sir Giles



Reluctant dragon slayer Sir Giles from the 1941 short film The Reluctant Dragon.
Beautifully voiced by Claud Allister, his personality reminds me of Merlin from Disney's The Sword in the Stone. Both characters are befuddled seniors who come to life through beautiful character animation.
I don't know who drew these lovely studies, but I like them a lot.
