The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad
I'm a huge fan of Disney's 1949 animated feature (their 11th), The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. It is made up of two different segments based on The Wind in the Willows and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and both have fantastic animation in them.
Below is a selection of drawings from the film along with a pencil test which I put together from the frames found in Frank and Ollie's 'Illusion of Life' book.
And the final shot as seen in the film:
Another big post coming early in the week on getting the face to look more fleshy in CG animation. I also have a whole bunch of awesome pencil tests which I have been analysing which I will start posting soon.
