Lounsbery's Robin Hood

These rough animation drawings of Robin Hood show how John Lounsbery handled the character early on in production. To me he looks more like a comic sidekick than the hero type Milt Kahl turned him into afterwards. Lounsbery's rough lines are fluid and less designy.

These drawings are currently available at Wonderful World of Animation:


  1. What great to see those drawings! So were these drawings intended as a test and not used in the final film?

  2. It's so sad that there isn't a lot of his art out there to study.

  3. Hi Andreas! Big fan! Can I ask you a question?
