Vlad from Tangled: Pencil Test

This is a pencil test I did using one of the Pub Thug characters from Disney's Tangled. I have not done a production pencil test in about 10 years so please forgive the very rough edges. I am glad Tangled is doing well and I hope you (if you saw it) enjoyed the film.

I really liked the animation and fun of this movie. The only way for me to watch it was on Youtube, but I still enjoyed it. Check it out if you get some time. Thanks for posting these Sandro!

Milt Kahl & Ollie Johnston

This clip is one of the reasons why I love animation. The ability to make a character come to life combined with technically achieving line control is amazing. Milt's animation on Medusa is broad but not overwhelmed with obscure posing and he applies it twice by animating her reflection. Ollie just captures the subtle but unsure movements of a young person. Both characters are completely believable.

This is animation at its its best!

Top 50 Resources for Students Attending Online Computer Animation Schools

I received and email with some good news. The Pencil Test Depot has been ranked number 10 as a top resource for students wanting to get an online education in art and animation. I want to send a very big thanks to Shawn Fisher for informing me about his site. I hope that we can continue to provide some great eye candy and inspiration to students and professionals. The site would not be going with out all of the great finds on the internet and donations from some good people. Thanks again to everyone
