Tonal Sketches for Mulan


©Disney.
My little daughter watches Mulan over and over again and everytime I glance at the TV, I still can't help but watch and enjoy it over again myself. It's such a beautiful movie and brought back a lot of memories and artworks in mind. Seeing some shots that I did, I went through my files and dug up these two artworks what we used to call tonal sketches. Whenever we finished a cleanup layout, we used to include also a smaller composite drawing complete with tonal renderings of both bg and animation pose. This represents how we see the complete layout on the screen and the basis for the background painting. These were done in pencil and grey pantone markers on heavy animation paper ten years ago!

The golden years of the traditional animation.Many things have changed and there are many advances, but 2D never dies.
The columns are powerful and the pencil is brilliant. Pure art

I really liked Mulan, and seeing the concept/development art for it - like these tonal sketches - is super cool! (Especially for art students and Disney fans like myself)
Always great to see your stuff =)
