Those look pretty good. but they're so rough looking I can't really see the nice smooth lines I want to see. <br> <br> I saw Mononoke Hime today (had to follow along on a script, but that's what Miyazaki fan'll do) and I saw Midsummer Night's Dream. I couldn't have had a better day. They just better not cut one bit of the score in that movie or I will freak.

Well, well, well. . . looks like the mouse house has been cooking up some pretty DANG good stuff. And believe me, however POE is certainly a real good movie, and will probably move the industry, Tarzan will more so do that and MORE!!!! I have been following this project for as long as I have known of it (3 years), and it just keeps getting better and better!! True, however the model sheets ARE fantasitic. . . the animation and acting is even more supreme! This Film is going to be the next Lion King in my opinion!! Keep it up Glen!!! Your my hero (sniff)!

I am in total agreement with Big Black, and in total disagreement with Champion the Wonder Horse. Glen has really done a fine job on this character (his best yet!!!), and from the animation I've seen I think he has incorporated a lot from his sabatical he took a yearand a half ago. he is truely a genius. As for you Wonder Horse. . . you need to be a bit more open minded, even if animation isn't for you I am sure that there could be SOMETHING admirable about it. Of course coming from me that sounds bius(sp?), because I am an animator and have done feature work as well as Television and commercial stuff. But truely, wait untill you see the film to make judgments. . . I HAVE seen short rough versions of it and it is going to rock! As big black said look for the inovative way Tarzan grabs vines with his feet, and instead of always swinging, he surfs on the vines! Plus the story is so down to earth. . . it is about "where do I belong in the world"? It's so dang good I wish was at Disney NOW working on it! But in conclusion, just be a little more open minded and if you like, fine, if you don't, then keep it to yourself.

Gentlemen, I am neighing with pleasure at your response and thank you for your comments.Allow me to retort ! Animation is just one area of graphic art.Graphic art schools are where many animators learn their trade.My school is no exception.Indeed DISNEY regularly come here trying to recrute students.There are not many takers ! As for being a 'mere' student : Student art and animation is by and large far more innovative,creative and interesting then much of the work done professionally.NICK PARK did A GRAND DAY OUT as his degree thesis for example.Art college is where you have the opportunity to experiment without being subject to the constraints of the commercial world.Also,I do not need a lesson in the animation process as I have been animating practically since I could hold a pencil. If my opinions sound a bit strong it is partly because I am exaggerating to make a point but also because I am professionally interested, obviously ! Moreover I have a passion for the visual arts and it pains me immensely to see low-quality work praised to the skies.I can assure you that my opinions re. DISNEY are generally shared amongst my classmates and,I suspect, in many art colleges.

If you've not heard of Glen Keane, then you've not heard of Kathy Zelinski, Tony Fucile, Dave Brewster, Dave Pruixsma, Mark Oftedal, or James Baxter. These are ALL amazing animators--as good in many ways, and better in some.
Hey Big Black? Whats you e-mail?
