Milt Kahl Day

If you have $1,000 to spare, rush to Van Eaton Gallery's Website and you can own an original Milt Kahl drawing.  In fact, for this price, you can purchase not only the Prince drawing by Milt but also the accompanied drawing of the Princess by Marc Davis.
Unfortunately, I can not afford it right now (Dammit!) but if you can, lucky you.

At least we can still enjoy these scans.

  1. Awesome stuff
    Sandro, how is done these interactions between characters animated by different animators?
    One is animated first, then the other one? And about planning, both animators plann it together how the action will be?
    Thanks you for posting this =D

  2. Jonathan,

    When two animators work on the same scene they have to talk with each other and discuss how the action is going to be. Usually, the animator who start the scene is the one whose character motivates it, lead the action and then the other animator does his character reacting.
    There has to be communication between the animators.
    In the case of this scene, they had live action reference which makes it easier for the animators.
    Milt and Marc Davies (who animated the princess) were very good friends and I am sure they talked about how to animate these scenes a lot.
    Thanks for visiting the blog.

  3. Thank you very much Sandro
    Obrigado =D

  4. I love the beautiful simplicity of even Milt's timing charts. And have to love those clasped hands in the second frame. And speaking of hands, I hope these gems end up in very appreciative ones! Thanks for sharing.
