Animation Inspiration – Scar from Lion King Pencil Test

Andreas Deja: Scar from Lion King/ Part 1 from Jamaal Bradley on Vimeo.

Here is a beautiful pencil test from Andreas Deja. The pencil test can be found on Jamaal Bradley’s vimeo account.

Notice the subtle acting choices. Scar is given so much live and emotion without going too crazy. Disney does an amazing job at not “over animating” their characters. Something that I know I often do in my animations. Subtle is sweet, so keep it simple.

Personally I know I will be studying this shot frame by frame. The body mechanics and weight sing. You can feel the weight of scar as he stands up from a seated positions. A truly inspiring animation for every young animator. This clip has very working principle of animation, I just love it.
