Add Setting the Scene: The Art & Evolution of Animation Layout to your Christmas lists. It’s a gem!
I chopped the original up into nicer viewing sizes. You can see them all comped together here.
I’m a little late to the party on this one. You may have already seen this elsewhere. Sam Ellis tipped me off to these great layouts to He-Man, a major part of my child hood. I had to post these for nostalgia reasons alone. Luckily they’re also pretty nice to look at too. Click the image to see lots more.
A month or so ago, a good friend of mine managed to grab me this. Its an art-book published specifically for the Studio Ghibli Layout Designs Exhibition. Quite a rare book and it contains very inspirational layout drawings by Miyazaki and Takahata. Great for the aspiring hand drawn animator! There some more images here and here.
