Tale Spin Storyboards
One of the great joys of working for Disney was being surrounded with really gifted people… like great storyboard artists. Here is a collection of panel blow-ups from the first Tale Spin adventure, “I Only Have Ice For You” (written by Don Rosa). I’m sorry that I don’t know the board artist on this, but I hope someone will offer me the information at some point. Note the detail and the posing and the expressions. Great visual storytelling.
Just to drive the point home, compare this 2-character shot from Filmation’s ‘Zorro’ with this one from TS. (This is no attack on the Zorro artist; this was simply the norm at one time.)
