              Vintage Animation Model Sheets

An animation model sheet is a design reference created from a group of original pencil sketches. It was created during the
making of this film as a guide for animators and background artists.

Vintage animation model sheets are either ozalid or lithographic high quality prints made in a very limited quantity.  
They are not copy machine prints or “Xerox” reproductions.

To create a vintage model sheet, the design artist first drew a group of character poses in pencil. These drawings were
trimmed and mounted on animation paper. The pencil model sheet was then transferred to heavy paper using either a
lithographic print process or an ozalid photographic process.  These expensive model sheets were produced in very small
quantities.

Vintage animation model sheets had several uses in the making of a film. Concept model sheets detailed background
ideas and atmospheric moods for the story planners. Character model sheets were used by animators to standardize
the look of a character for consistency. Prop model sheets were used as guides to detail the look of background
elements and character props.
ORIGINAL PENCIL ANIMATION ART
An animation sketch is an original one-of-a-kind drawing not a print or reproduction.
Because it has actually been used in a studio to create a cartoon, it is sometimes called a
production drawing.

To create animation, the artist or animator first draws the character on paper. This
pencil drawing is later transferred to the front of a sheet of acetate known as a cel.
After the transfer, highly skilled cel painters known as opaquers paint in the outlined
characters on the back of the cel so that, viewed from the front, the colors appear
brilliant, uniform and free of texture. Later, cels are laid upon a background painting
and filmed, one after the other, creating the illusion of the cartoon characters in motion.

Fantasia is a 1940 American animated film, produced by Walt Disney and released by Walt Disney Productions. With story direction by Joe Grant and Dick Huemer,
and production supervision by Ben Sharpsteen, it is the third feature in the Disney animated features canon. The film consists of eight animated segments set to pieces
of classical music conducted by Leopold Stokowski; seven of which are performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra. Music critic and composer Deems Taylor acts as the
film's Master of Ceremonies, who introduces each segment in live action interstitial scenes.

Disney settled on the film's concept as work neared completion on The Sorcerer's Apprentice, an elaborate Silly Symphonies short designed as a comeback role for
Mickey Mouse who had declined in popularity. As production costs grew higher than what it could earn, he decided to include the short in a feature-length film with
other segments set to classical pieces. The soundtrack was recorded using multiple audio channels and reproduced with Fantasound, a pioneering sound reproduction
system that made Fantasia the first commercial film shown in stereophonic sound.

Original art from Fantasia is among the most sought after from all the classic Disney films. We are pleased to be able to offer a wide range of
unique art from one of our favorite films!
