More Disney Foxes

The first is an animation rough by Glen Keane; the others are unidentified. Anyone?
I'd hazard a guess and say that the second page, the drawings of Tod expressions just under Keane's, is Phil Nibbelink's. It reminds me strongly of drawings I've seen of his...but that's just a guess.

Again, these are posted artificially small here on the page; click them to open them and really see them at a better size.

nice! these drawings look so natural and fluid. did you notice that there's two drawings of the same expression in the bottom right corner of the second and fourth image? interesting indeed!

Jenny said...

Oh, wow...no, I'd totally missed that--and it's so obvious! It is interesting...I wonder if they(whoever "they" were)were going off a model sheet, then? True geekdom on my part! ; )

I agree--they're all very appealing.

I love these Disney fox designs. I remember seeing Fox and the Hound in the theater when I was a kid.

Thanks so much for posting these Jenny! Do you actually have your hands on the originals?

Jenny said...

Hi Josh-yes, I have all the originals--on loan from the person who owns them and generously offered them for posting and sharing. I wish they looked as good here as they do in real life...I felt the same way about the Fred Moore originals; as great as the scans look--the originals! Wow. There's just something about the marks on paper...well, everyone knows that. : )

Thanks for coming by and commenting!

Wow! I don't drop by for a few days and you post all these amazing Glen Keane drawings. Like alot of young people in the biz, he is one of the main reasons I am doing what I am doing.
Jenny, thank you so much for sharing.
Also, Thanks to you and James Walker for sharing all of the Freddie Moore goodness.

Scenes with Big Mama trying to reassure baby fox at the base of the fence post, Prod. 0136 Seq. 001 "Baby fox is found", Sc. 111-120 have Jerry Rees as animator on the draft, followed by some John Musker scenes where they directly interact.

I remember Jerry Rees mostly as director on The Brave Little Toaster, and part of the team to supervise all computer animation on Tron, with Bill Kroyer (with whom I had the pleasure to work a long time ago, on Ferngully and a commercial we did in Denmark in 1991).

Thanks Jenny. This Blog is total eye candy.

2nd drawing reminds me of some Jeff Varab squiggles and thumbnails I saw on other films he worked on.
But they're so fast and rough- who knows...
great post!

Found this page while searching in vain for model sheets. Wonderful! F&H was my first Disney love so it's a treat seeing these.
