I don't know why I suddenly became interested in Disney's 1946 feature Song of the South.
It could be because Disney has never released the film on any Home Video format due to potential racist controversies and is widely sought after. Or could be my interest in southern traditions and classic folklore. Or could be that the animation and characters of Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox and Brer Bear are so strong that they just appeal to me. Well whatever it is, I digs it.
I did a lot of experimenting on this piece, I tried to make a creative composition with the characters where your eye would led around the picture and not away from it. And I've been wanting to try doing some backgrounds too. Not so proud of that though, looks too much like a little Golden Book or something, even though I used that as a bit of inspiration, but not completely my own yet.
I was also planning on adding this Uncle Remus, but he didn't fit into the composition and it ended up looking better without him. Sorry Uncle Remus...I hope you don't mind.
And if anyone's interested, you should go sign this ONLINE PETITION to try to get the movie released to DVD.
Thanks for lookin! I'll have some sketches and animations up real soon.
Well, so long...
