Description - The Art Of Disney's Dragons by Tom Bancroft

Imagine if one sketchbook had been passed down through the decades from one Disney artist to the next, with each one making a contribution before leaving it in the talented hands of another. That idea was the inspiration for THE ART OF DISNEY'S DRAGONS.

The drawings contained within this volume represent the entire range of dragon-themed development art from animators, live-action studio artists, and Imagineers.

Inside find playful pencil studies of Mushu; colour concepts on Figment (who was green before he became purple!); bold pencil layouts on Maleficent, and the latest character explorations of Elliot from the new Spring/Summer 2016 live-action film Pete's Dragon. Tom Bancroft, often recognized in Disney circles as being lead animator on Mushu the dragon in Mulan, writes the book's introductory essay.

The illustrators in this volume were all Disney artists at the time of their work on Disney animation, live-action films with special effects, or park attractions. Each piece of art will be credited in an end notes section, including names such as Tom Bancroft, Tim Burton, Rolly Crump, Marc Davis, Eric Goldberg, Bill Justice, John Hench, and many more.
