Real-Life Character References For Disney



Disney used a lot of footage of real-life actors as reference for their animated films, even using them to trace over animations in some cases. Some of these live-action and final animation shots have been Photoshopped into images to show the similarities side-by-side.

They also referenced their own animated films when creating ‘new’ ones, with some of the scenes looking almost identicle you can see that they traced over many of the elements to quickly sketch out the initial scene.

I saw these images in a really interesting article over on where there are many more images and more detailed information. Head over there to read this great article for yourself.
