    Land Before Time Concept Art by Don Moore (Amblin, 1988). The Land Before Time was directed and produced by Don Bluth and executive produced by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. The film follows the friendship of a group of young dinosaurs, Littlefoot, Cera, Ducky, Petrie, and Spike. After finding the Great Valley, they raise a carnivorous baby who they name Chomper, survive a drought, a cold snap, encounter aliens, and witness a solar eclipse. Throughout the film, they embark upon adventures, learning lessons about life and friendship along the way. Offered in this lot is a superb concept painting by Don Moore. Moore is an art director and visual effects artist who served as background stylist on this film. Concept art is developed through several iterations. Multiple solutions are explored before settling on the final design. Concept art is not only used to develop the work, but also to show the project's progress to directors, clients and investors. Once the development of the work is complete, concept art may be reworked and used for advertising materials. This is an extraordinary piece of concept art. Rendered on background board of 22" x 8.5". The artwork is hand-signed by the artist. Included is a Certificate of Authenticity issued by Howard Lowery Gallery. One of the better concept pieces that we have seen. Very light handling. Overall condition is Very Good.
