Drafting Robin Hood

– It’s been a while since I’ve posted any charts or drafts, so here is a sequence from Disney’s Robin Hood that I have.

Will Finn featured two really interesting posts on his blog (pt. 1 / pt. 2) about the design of this film’s characters, and these reminded me that I had these drafts.

They’re apparently early and are marked as “rough.” Indeed, the names are hand written into the drafts, so I suspect some changes occurred after they were set.

The sequence is called “Robin Discovers Tuck’s Peril.” It was directed by Woolie Reitherman, Jeff Patch was the Asst. Director of this sequence, Basil Davidovich the Layout Supervisor. Animators include: John Lounsbery, Eric Larson, and Hal King.

    I love John Lounsbery’s work from some of those later films. It was wonderfully spontaneous looking, with a lot of sketchy “shagginess”. His was a style just perfect for those Xeroxed cel years. Probably couldn’t do it today, however, with all the clean, closed lines necessary to satisfy the picky computers.
