    The Black Cauldron Character Development Concept Art by Marc Davis (Walt Disney, 1985). With Eric Larson's massive team of new artists and animators under contract for Disney Animation Studio, Milt Kahn and Marc Davis were brought in by Joe Hale to help the young artistic team with character development. Marc Davis (1913 - 2000) is a Disney Legend inductee and one of Walt Disney's Original Nine Old Men. This is a series of four 16 field 3-peghole character development studies for this film. The artwork includes pages on Orddu and Eilonwy (images 6" and 7"), six studies of Eilonwy (3"-5"),The three witches Orwen, Orgoch, and Orddu, Taryn (6"-7"), and a Gurgi study of five poses, with two taped on trimmed paper (3"-4"). Some of the last formal work Davis did at the Studio. There are four pages artwork in this lot! In Very Good condition with minor handling and edge wear. From the Joe Hale Archives.
