    The Black Cauldron Character Studies/Concept Art by Marc Davis Group of 5 (Walt Disney, 1985). A massive new team of animators and artists were brought in to work on this Disney animated feature film. Both Milt Kahl and Marc Davis worked on the film in character development and mentoring, and in training this new talent. This is a rare series of five character studies concept art from the hand of Disney Legend Inductee and one of Walt's original "Nine Old Men," Mr. Marc Davis (1913 - 2000). This would be one of the last projects Marc worked on for Walt Disney Studios. Character studies are for Hen Wen, Gurgi, King Elidilleg and Doli, Creeper (fighting with the Horned King's dog over a bone), and the three witches. Some of these have directions and notes from Mr. Davis' hand. Art is in graphite on 16 field 3-peghole animation paper, with nice image sizes of 2" to 6". Five pages of original artwork for the hand of "Walt's Secret Weapon," Mr. Marc Davis! Minor handling and edge wear. Fine condition. From the Joe Hale Collection.
