Milt Kahl Day

  These are from a scene in Robin Hood and as you can see, Robin is drawn very different that the final version.  They had a hard time deciding on the final design for Robin and I suspect this is from the first design that Milt created.  I like the final design but I think this is more fun.

The animation here is amazing as always and lots of stuff happening in terms of animation principles which is great to study.  Bouncing ball, squash and stretch, overlap, follow through, silhouette, etc. You name it and it's there.  Design wise is also brilliant in every drawing. It's a great scene to study.


Esses desenhos sao de uma cena de Robin Hood e como podem ver, Robin foi desenhado bem diferente da versao final.  Eles tiveram muita dificuldade em decidir num design para Robin e eu suspeito de esse seja o primeiro design que Milt criou antes de mudarem.  Eu gosto do design final mas acho esse mais interessante.

A animacao aqui e muito rica em termos de principios de animacao e ha muita coisa aontecendo como "bauncing ball, squash e strech, overlap, follow through, silhouette, etc, esta tudo la.  Grande cena para estudar.

The beginning



I just found this on Youtube and thought you might be interested to know how was my animation when I started. This is a commercial for a Brazilian Airline and this character was very famous at that time.
I animated (and re-animated over other animators) most of these scenes. I also helped a little with the scene planing.

It was 1987 or 88 and I was just 17 years old when I did this and was at the very beginning of my career.
As you can see, the timing and poses are very weak but I did not know any better and I kept doing and working really hard and never gave up.
It was produced at at studio called Briquet Films, in Sao Paulo and that was my school, I learned by working on actual productions. It was a great and fun time.


Eu acabei de achar esse clipe no Youtube e achei que voces poderiam se interessar em saber como era minha animacao quando comecei minha carreira. Esse comercial e o personagem variguinho foram muito famosos na epoca.
Eu animaei (E re-animei cenas de outros animadores) quase todas as cenas. Eu tambem lembro de ter ajudado um pouco com o planejamento.

Foi feito no ano de 1987 ou 88 e eu tinha apenas 17 anos de idade. Como voces podem ver, o timing e as poses sao bem fracas mas eu nao sabia muito naquela epoca e estava aprendendo (Ainda estou) mas sempre continuei a trabalhar bastante para melhorar e nunca desisti.
O comercial foi feito no estudio da Briquet Films, em Sao Paulo e foi tambem minha escola. Eu aprendi trabalhando em producoes como essa.
Foram bons tempos.
