A few days ago I visited TEFAF, together with my father. Needless to say, we encountered wonderful art. What struck me the most however, were the sculptures exhibited by the Sladmore Gallery. Sladmore Gallery is based in London and specialises in fine art bronze sculptures. There were works by Rodin, Barye, Bugatti, Degas, etc. And then there was the work of Prince Paul Troubetzkoy. I had never heard of this Russian/Italian sculptor before, ...what a shame! His work is fantastic! Elegant and bold at the same time. Look at these pictures:

Glen Keane

Ok, I know this sounds silly, but I've always wanted to see the rough pencil-test of 'Part of your world'. On top is one of the production drawings made by Glen Keane for this scene. It is rumored that while animating the entire scene, he added shadow's to the drawings, to enhance the (sculptural) feel of 3-dimensionality of Ariel. Below are some of his storyboard-sketches for the scene. Oh, if only this scene was to be shown in it's original form..!
