Tease 5

Milt Kahl was a junior animator in his 20s when he animated this scene with a dove "delivering" a kiss from Snow White to the Prince. I find this key drawing simply stunning.
It shows that Milt was already a master of staging a situation (as well as a master of drawing hands).
The bashful tilt of the dove's head is PERFECT! In the hands of a lesser artist, this moment could have been a B continuity scene, instead it turned out to be an A+.
A lot of dedication and love in this drawing.

It appears in my book on Disney's Nine Old Men.
