DescriptionWizards Early Concept Background Layout Drawing by Toby Bluth (Ralph Bakshi, 1977). Here's an amazing graphite image of a dwarf's den filled with wine and spirits bottles, jugs, and barrels, in a drawing from the early stages of this animated feature. The art, by former Disney artist Toby Bluth (1940 - 2013), is nicely detailed, drawn on paper folded back to an overall size of 24" x 12", with an approximate image size of 22" x 10.5". It's noted in the lower right margin as "War Wizards," the original working title, with a date of 6/9/75. Director Ralph Bakshi didn't pitch the film to 20th Century Fox until 1976! The paper has been rolled and folded, with small edge pieces missing from the left side (missing the image area). Good overall condition.
