|The animatic - plotting out out the action in pose form.|
|Kirk Hendry, creating lighting and textural atmosphere...|
|...as well as subtly different colour temperatures for the 'feel' of the shot.|
|Peter Dodd, animating Bart and Lisa locked in combat.|
|Inside the mind of a great animator: Peter Dodd's amazingly labyrinthine workings-out look like a work of art unto themselves. But the end result looks effortless.|

|An emaciated Santa's Little Helper - my favourite part to animate.|

|Artwork from The Last Belle - black lines photocopied from ink drawings onto|
cel, with hand-inked shirt pattern, and cel paint on the reverse.
|An original cel from a Harlem Globetrotters commercial animated by Richard Williams|
and (I think) Tom Roth. Soft waxy pencil on frosted cel, cel paint on the back.
|Here's a close up of that head. Bear in mind that this commercial|
was mostly animated on ones, so 25 of these 'drawn-paintings' would have
to be produced per second of screen time!
|Another insane amount of work, this time for a commercial animated by Richard|
Williams and Simon Wells. The style had to mimic the work of famous
newspaper cartoonist 'Kal'.
|Here's a close up of all that cross-hatching. You can almost smell the late nights|
spent at the studio producing this commercial!
|Artwork painted (in guache?) directly onto cel by Richard Williams. I love how|
delicate the brushwork is - this really can stand up to being framed and mounted
on the wall!
|Wax and soft coloured pencils on frosted cel, cel paint on reverse. This commercial|
(for breath freshener!) was animated by Russell Hall, assisted by Bella Bremner.
|Up close, I love the different textures here: sketchy, but controlled, linework;|
rendered light and shade; hot and smelly looking smoke, shaded and smudged.
