    Fantasia Ben Ali Gator Model Sheet Original Art (Walt Disney, 1940). Ben Ali Gator is one of the stars of the "Dance of the Hours" section in Fantasia. The character design team for this segment included Martin Provensen, James Bodrero, Duke Russell and Earl Hurd, with direction by Norm Ferguson and T. Hee. This is an early animator's practice model sheet of Ben Ali Gator, drawn in graphite on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper, with four great images. The image sizes range from 3" to 10". There are slight red pencil highlights on the full figure Ben. The number 523 is written in the bottom right corner. Amazing character study/concept art piece. Framed with glass and matted with an opening size of 12" x 10"; overall frame size is 15" x 13". Minor handling and edge wear, with pinholes in top corners. Very Good condition.
