    Fantasia Unicorn (Pegasus) Model Sheet Illustration (Walt Disney, 1940). Disney Legend Inductee Joe Grant started the Disney Character Model Department. He helped lead the way for studio animator maquettes and studio model sheets. Model sheets were made by trimming key poses, mounting them to a board, and shooting and printing them for staff use. This process is showcased here. This is an early concept drawing (almost 11"!) of a Fantasia unicorn (Pegasus), drawn in Conte crayon and mounted to a trimmed backing. The original studio stamp reads "Character Model Dep't." Joe Grant has hand-initialed this piece of paperwork dated 11/1/39. A great insight into the making of this film and how the Character Model Department helped in the animation process. Newly attached to backing cardboard to showcase both pieces together. Fine condition.
