Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 148474716X, Hardcover)Imagine if one sketchbook had been passed down through the decades from one Disney artist to the next, with each one making a contribution before leaving it in the talented hands of another. That idea was the inspiration for The Art of Disney's Dragons. The drawings contained within this volume represent the entire range of dragon-themed development art from animators, live-action studio artists, and Imagineers. Inside find playful pencil studies of Mushu; color concepts on Figment (who was green before he became purple!); bold pencil layouts on Maleficent, and the latest character explorations of Elliot from the new Spring/Summer 2016 live-action film Pete's Dragon. Tom Bancroft, often recognized in Disney circles as being lead animator on Mushu the dragon in Mulan, writes the book's introductory essay.

"Throughout time and across cultures, dragons have existed as part of our collective imagination, breathing fire, guarding treasure, and embodying magic. Some are evil, some are kind -- but all are fascinating. The Walt Disney Company has had a long-standing fascination with dragons, and this book -- conceived as a sketchbook handed down through generations of Disney artists -- chronicles the impact that dragons have had on Disney films, parks, and resorts. Inside these pages are the bold storyboards of Sleeping Beauty's Maleficent, color concepts of Epcot's Figment (who was green before he became purple!), playful studies of Mulan's Mushu, and production poses of Elliot from 2016's Pete's Dragon, directed by David Lowery. The illustrators -- a wide variety of animators, live-action studio artists, and Imagineers -- include Tim Burton, Rolly Crump, Marc David, Eric Goldberg, Bill Justice, John Hench, Joe Rohde, Chuck Ballew, and more."--Back cover.
