By request, here are digitally recreated B/Gs from Don Bluth's LAND BEFORE TIME.
This DVD release is unfortunately a contender for the noisiest film to video transfer I've ever seen -
but the art is beautiful as we expect from Bluth.
The character design was very appealing - like Bambi with dinosaurs.
The stark backgrounds balanced the cuteness of the animation.
On some of these I've retained the characters -
to show scale, interplay between cels and B/Gs,
or where they simply couldn't be eliminated.
Was Bluth as good as classic Disney?
At his very best... pretty darn close.
Please remember to click on the images to see them at full size!

a beautiful vertical pan B/G. Note the dinosaur at the bottom - this is a BIG pan B/G!
