Looks good.

There is a second part to the shot (or a second shot) which is harder to figure out, though the Recobbled Cut Mk4 makes an attempt (inbetween the stemless color shot of the roses, and the pencil test). Actual animation art from this part turned up on Ebay, although not in full. I'll upload my efforts to restore that here:

The twelfth video on our DVD titled "Richard Williams Extras Tests Thief and the Cobbler Who Framed Roger Rabbit" is the pencil test reel these tests came from, if I recall correctly. It's downloadable in its original format here (see Download Original Files at right, in DD format viewable in VLC), and streams as a more compressed web version.

I've also added The Thief and the Cobbler Scrapbook Vol 7 here. It's the one with the big portfolio in it.

Here's a bit of 1974 animation by Corny Cole, which you'll enjoy.

"Clerow's Great Escape" (1974) DFE, dir. Corny Cole

Corny contributed to Richard Williams' 1977 Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure, and his art is all over John Canemaker's book about the production.

He also animated two versions of "Neverwhere Land" for the film Heavy Metal. The deleted scene is on many releases of the film as an extra, and I suspect it was deleted because it's a lot better than the rest of the film.

Thanks Garrett, I'm very pleased with it so far. And I have a holiday right now, so I hope I can work a bit faster the coming weeks.

And thanks for all the links. Regarding that second shot, it is indeed a bit trickier. Though I think the linetest frames are clear enough if someone would try it, but still a lot of work keeping all those flowers in the correct place.
So sad that all the work on that shot is never used and simply sold on eBay. Do you know who bought them?
