    Description

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Hand-Drawn Model Sheet of Sleepy and Doc (Walt Disney, 1937). This item is as rare as rare can get! It is one of the original hand-drawn Model Sheets used in the production of one of the most influential animated feature films ever created. These drawings of Sleepy and Doc are created in graphite with orange, blue, and green pencil, on three separate pieces of paper that have been affixed to a piece of 12.5" x 15" Bristol board. Doc is 5.5" tall in some poses, and Sleepy is 4.5" tall in others. Model Sheets are an important part of the animation process and these images would have been copied and distributed to animators and layout artists to keep the characters "on-model." In Snow White, Bill Tytla and Fred Moore did most of the principal rough animation of the Seven Dwarfs. There is some handling wear and the paper is tanned, with pinholes, most likely from being tacked up at an artist's drawing table. This piece of Disney history is in Fine condition.
