I found more King Triton rough drawings in the bowels of my archive. The sheet above, providing instructions for clean up, was produced by my then assistant Lou Dellarosa.
Below you can see my first pass rough drawing from a scene in which Triton is confronting Ariel.
Lou did not work from that drawing though. I drew a tighter rough version of each key in graphite which served as the basis for clean up work. Those tighter rough drawings are housed at Disney.
Some of these paper sheets are starting to show their age.
I remember how much I enjoyed working with actor Ken Mars' voice, full of authority but also kindness. I had to shift gears though. Before animating King Triton I had finished work on Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
"Don't you take that tone of voice with me, young lady!"
