Salvadore Dali!? Really cool.

I LOVE that scene from Snow White! Probably one of the best deleted scenes. Wish it had gone fully animated.

Drawing with Personality

Hosted by Disney animator Andreas Deja

Andreas started at Disney in 1980 right around the time when all the long time Disney animators had retired. However, he made it his mission to get in contact with as many of them as he could and still learn anything while they were still around.

He showed us some drawing from classic, but lesser known animators. This is from “Frolicking Fish” circa 1930 by Les Clark who was well known for animating Mickey.



This was a drawing of Mickey by Freddie Moore, who was known as the chief animator for Mickey Mouse.



I believe that this might have been another of Freddie Moore’s animations



Andreas Deja did the animation of Mickey Mouse in the Roger Rabbit Movie. He noted that in this sketch of Mickey for Fantasia, as the sorcerer he looks like a kid who is going to do something wrong. So much is said by his pose.



Early on they developed “standards” or guidelines on how the characters were to be drawn. Here is the style sheet for the Brave Little Tailor.



This is Andreas drawing for us on the stage.



He showed us the different nuances of drawing Mickey from a sideways vies vs a head on view. Evidently the placement of the ears is different for each way. This was something Walt discovered and had all animators draw mickey that way forward.











Then he showed some sketches from Snow White where she just kissed Doc.



Here is the style sheet for some of the dwarves.



Another sketch



Bill Titler who animated Dumbo based the character on his newborn baby.



Willie Reitman did the Dinosaurs in Fantasia



Ollie Johnson believed in his characters and that they really existed, he had a very light touch to his drawings.

Marc Davis had a very different approach to his characters. In early versions of Aurora, she was much younger than the final version.



He always envisioned Maleficent as black and red







Eric Cleworth was the animator on the Dragon



Frank Thomas did many of the drawings for Mickey Mouse



He also did Captain Hook



Lady and the Tramp



And he also did the Fairies from Cinderella















He also did these characters





The next artist that give Andreas inspiration was John Lounsbury. He animated Tony in Lady and the Tramp as well as some of the goons. He has a noticeably different style than the previous two artists.

Milt Kaul (check spelling) did Peter Pan



He also did the Prince in Sleeping Beauty. He absolutely loathed this character because he was boring.





These are some experiments in hands from Roger in 101 Dalmations



and Sword in the Stone.



One of the things that he really enjoyed, was humanizing aminals









One of his last characters before he left the studio was Medusa.



Now it was time for Andreas to share some of his skills with us. He worked on a number of projects with Disney. His first was Villan Mickey from Runaway Brain.







Another character that he worked on was Scar

He also worked on Jafar, now in our kits for the conference we were given a sketch pad of paper and some sort of pencils and were encouraged to draw along with him. He was clearly describing the features of the character as he drew them, such as the pronounced eyebrows.





For this picture he pointed out how the shape of his face resembled an old style “key hole” and by making his face pronounced like that it gave him a more sinister look.







He had to provide the broad shoulders here, so that the parrot had the stage set for him to walk back and forth. By setting the mouth low, he also establishes his personality as a sour puss.



As so much time has passed since the presentation, I don’t remember all the details that he shared, but I recall being transfixed by the demonstration. Just documenting it on camera was difficult enough to keep up with.



Now when he challenged the audience to draw along with him, he requested that folks not copy what he was doing, but use the same basic elements and use their own creativity. Here are some of the audience drawings.







This concluded the Drawing with Personality section of our conference

I guess so. Thank you so much for all your work Alison. I can imagine how transfixed you were. I was with your posts and I'm not even a Disney girl a la characters and such. I love WDW as a land not the characters as much. BUT I was absolutely wowed by all of it and interested. Incredibly fascinating. Thank you!

I feel like I've missed a trip of yours - I'll figure it out - maybe if I simply glance down.

Oh WOW, those were amazing and so much detail and wonder in every project, that had to be an amazing job, but at the same time a labor of love.

I am loving all the wonderful items you have to share!

All caught up. I somehow missed the update before this one, sorry. I'm amazed you were able to keep up with notes, photograph, and enjoy the presentations.

I agree completely, I have been transfixed by your posts, can't believe being there in person.

Just catching up.

Loving all the detail sketches! I might need to go and try doodling some of them myself. This would have been one cool session to sit through.

thanks for sharing.

So I do have to share something amazing that happened yesterday which relates back to this update. Fran and I both love garage sales, and Friday night she found one on Craigslist where they were advertising Disney Art and collectibles. We got a late start to the sale, and Fran was afraid that all the good stuff would be gone. However, they didn't necessarily have "art", but they did have a lot of cool stuff like promotional posters and framed pin sets. We cleaned up, but there was one picture in the 15-20 somewhat that we bought that was a picture of Scar and it was signed by the artist that I talked about above in the update. The seller knew what she had, but even so she still gave us a good deal.

Because we bought so many things, it took over 45 minutes for the lady to tally up Fran's purchases, so in the meantime I went and picked up Darcy. It took her that whole time to figure out the price while I got Darcy. The two of us got back just in time to tally up the total cost and pack up the car with the loot! We spent a pretty penny, but I think we got a lot of worth out of what we took home! Now we need to add a third story onto the addition we are building!

Sounds like a great clean-up sale! A third story? Better start work with the architect now.
