AN AMERICAN TAIL

DETAILED LAYOUT FROM INITIAL STORYBOARD

Pencil.

This was an exercise for Don Bluth, taking an existing storyboard from AN AMERICAN TAIL, and creating a detailed layout composite. It was critical that we did not reference the final painted background as it appeared in the film; rather, we had to use our own imagination to embellish the details and lighting.
