Four Artists Paint One Tree

A fascinating Disney short, featuring four in-house artists: Marc Davis, Josh Meador, Eyvind Earle, and Walter Peregoy. They all paint the same tree, and discuss their creative processes and artistic choices. I’ve always wanted to see Earle paint, so this was quite the treat! Found via Muddy Colors.

Video: Franquin, Morris, Peyo, and Roba

Here’s a neat video of André Franquin (Gaston), Maurice “Morris” De Bevere (Lucky Luke), Pierre “Peyo” Culliford (The Smurfs), and Jean Roba (Billy & Buddy) taking part in a drawing game. The point of the game, it seems, is to draw three versions of your character. Then the other contestants set up traps for your character, and you have to figure out how to render these traps harmless — all by drawing. Found via The Comics Reporter.
