Peter Chases His Shadow

- Many thanks to John Canemaker for offering this great scene by Milt Kahl from Peter Pan. The scene is made up of roughs by Kahl without the inbetweens or the Clean-up drawings. Enjoy.




















Here’s a QT of the scene with drawings exposed to what I think are
their appropriate frames.

    Thanks for posting this and the Quicktime. This is a great Milt scene and you can see his rough pass underneath the cleanup, which is nice for us to study it.
    His drawings were so great and on model (because he designed them) that the assistants would just close some lines and controlled a few areas, not much was needed to do.
    great stuff.

    It’s the first time I’m seeing the original drawings from Peter Pan.I love the way the lines that combine the character’s features are still visible.This is a great study case for anyone studying art.

    Is it just me, or are these original pencil drawings even more beautiful than what wound up on the screen? I truly appreciate the effort and expert tracing of the inkers, but I can’t help feeling the finished cels lack a bit of vitality.

    Walt may have hated it, but I am pretty glad Ub Iwerks invented the Xerox system when he did.

    Amazing stuff. When Mike and I were in San Francisco recently, we managed to pay a visit to the Walt Disney Family Museum – and boy am I glad we did. Among many other wonderful things there they had a number of Kahl drawings from sequences in Pinocchio. Seeing them individually draws attention to just how wonderfully he managed to clearly pose and stage an action with extraordinary balance of anatomy.

    Just stunning.

    It’s astounding that each frame looks so beautiful – to say nothing of the motion once they’re played at speed.
