tight pencil. really tight.

Martin Hash was kind enough to give me some items from his collection of animatia. This is an animation drawing from the Disney TV series "Duck Tales".

I'm marveling at the microscopic precision of it all because the figure (Huey? Dewey? Louis?) is only about an inch across on the paper and yet it would have to withstand being blown up to at least television size. Some of the lines you see here are separated by maybe a hundredth of an inch?

Someone with very sharp eyes and a very sharp pencil was at work. A Chinese someone, I presume, as there is Chinese writing elsewhere on the page.

Update: After consulting the layout page that came with this I have ascertained that this duck is not Huey, not Louis, but Dewey.
