Stromboli – Part 5

- This is Part 4 of this large scene by Bill Tytla of Stromboli.

Part 1 saw a frenetic anger from Stromboli;
Part 2 he caught himself to get a hold on his emotions.
Part 3 he slowed down and prepared for the kiss (a break)
and the bow featured in Part 4.
This final part is on twos, as he slowly slowly moves across in the bow and gets up to salute.

It’s obviously beautiful work and a gem of scene.
There’s no doubt the key Assistant had a lot to do with the final scene as displayed here. Tytla had enormous respect for his clean up assistants and gave such credit. (You can read it in the Action Analysis class, posted on Hans Perk’s A Film LA site.)

    “The first assistant must know as much as possible about animation. I think first assistant’s experience is the most practical way to get animation – you have everything that the animator has been working on – his exposure sheets, drawings, etc., and you know what he is trying to do.”

David Nethery has added the soundtrack from the final film and synced it up to this Pencil Test here.

We pick up the rest of the scene with the very next drawing.

    Stromboli’s buttons disappear on drawing #182 and do not return until #196. It’s painted that way, too, but the buttons’ absence somehow does not play as obtrusive in color.

    We feel the roundness, the weight of this fat man and look at the sweeping arcs and overlap of the beard, sleeve and vest, not to mention the acting!
    And the squash-and-stretch; when he’s squashed, he’s almost round.
    Each drawing is a beautiful piece of art.
