Horned King Pencil Test

This test was the first piece of animation I did after completing the Disney training program under Eric Larson.
Just for fun I  just added my voice to the scene. (30 years later).
Way back we had talked about the Horned King's face always being in the dark, you would only see his eyes. So for the test I didn't bother animating dialogue.
I didn't have a voice track anyway. I remember I acted the scene out in front of a mirror, it helped me with the foreshortening of his hand.
The bulk of the character's actual production scenes were animated by Phil Nibbelink.
For contrast I am showing a Tim Burton sketch of Taran and the pig Hen Wen....
