Like so many other animation and Disney enthusiasts, I love both BAMBI and PINOCCHIO, they represent animation art at its finest. Don't get me wrong there are many fine animated films, but of the early features they are my favorite.
Unfortunately Disney had to produce a sequel to BAMBI, fortunately for me, I worked on it as a layout artist and had a chance to see some very hi-res scans of the original backgrounds and layouts.
What is so amazing is the beauty of the artwork, the layout and background artists really did their best to capture that dreamy feel of the Tyrus Wong concepts. Here are a few pieces that really impressed me.
