    The Little Mermaid Ariel Production Cel and Animation Drawings Group of 4 (Walt Disney, 1989). A hand-painted production cel of a naked Ariel, right after she washes up on shore in her quest to find Eric. The cel is on a print background for presentation purposes. A Disney seal is on the cel and a Disney COA is on the back of the frame. It is a great pose of 5.5" x 6.5". A rough drawing, a clean-up animation drawing of Ariel, and an animation drawing of her legs from this same scene are included in the lot as a bonus! The Little Mermaid is the very last Disney feature animated film to use actual hand-painted production cels. Animation drawings for this film are also very hard to find. The clean-up drawing is an almost the exact match to this cel. It has some wrinkles on the right side, but not into the image, and a small mark near the figure; otherwise in Fine condition. The rough drawing and the animation drawing of her legs are in Fine condition. The cel is glass front framed to 17.5" x 13.5" and in Fine condition.
