"youre old enough to make appointments yourself now"
"Here is Ward, practically as a kid at about twenty-five, animating rich acting scenes with one of his iconic characters Jiminy Cricket. It is astonishing to realize just how young the Disney crew was when the studio produced its early classic films.
Just look at one of his rough animation drawings. It’s solid, full of life, has a ton of flair and that Disney charm. According to Kimball and the other animators it was Walt Disney, who was able to get his artists to this unimaginable level of excellence, and had them do things they didn’t know they were capable of doing. Walt’s exuberant passion for the animated medium rubbed off on everybody.” Deja View
Phew ! I’m happy to be done with this ! As you may or may not know, I’m a huge fan of Wes Anderson’s work, so of course I had to draw something for The Grand Budapest Hotel ! I loved that movie to bits, and I thought I could try to do a little gif of Agatha, although I don’t quite remember her exact outfit or bicycle !
My friend and classmate electric-frankenstein helped me figure out some of the animation so I thought I’d thank him properly here :)
