Milt Kahl - Jungle Book Pencil Test
Jungle Book has to be one of my favorite Disney animated films. The characters are so well established and have personalities that you just want to spend time with and watch them interact with each other.
The King Louie musical number is just one of the amazing classic Disney songs in the film. Milt's animation of King Louie is fantastic. I loved the character designs that Andrea's Deja posted on his blog that Milt did along with some of Frank Thomas' animation too: Andreas Deja Blog
I decided to put some drawings I have together as a pencil test against the pan background from the film. These drawings are full res scans from the fantastic Michael Sporn Blog.
Included is the recreated pan BG which I pieced together in photoshop which is well worth a look at apart from the animation.
I have a bunch of pencil tests from The Jungle Book, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Fantasia, 101 Dalmatians and Pinocchio which I will start to post soon as I analyse and break them down. So lots more to come soon!
