Disney Concept Art Visual Development


Disney Concept Art → Visual Development

When I joined Disney in 1951, it was the first time in my life that people urged me to paint. Previously I was doing this on the weekend, and during the holidays. Behold, they paid a salary for me to paint day and night, six days a week, in fact to do what I had always dreamed of. For me it was the best job in the world. {…}

{…} I started studying French paintings, German, Flemish, and Italian pre-Renaissance. Durer, Van Eyck, Breughel have inspired me and, more importantly, Boticelli. From there, I turned to Persian and Japanese artists. They had known record details of leaves, flowers and trees better than anyone. -Eyvind Earle
