Disney model sheets are collections of character reference guides used by animators and artists working on Disney animated films and television shows. They provide a consistent visual representation of the key features, expressions and poses of each character, ensuring their appearance remains uniform throughout the production. Model sheets serve as a crucial tool in maintaining the consistency of the animation style, as they offer a comprehensive understanding of the characters’ design and movements. By following these guidelines, animators can create seamless, harmonious scenes that stay true to the overall vision of the project. They were printed on photographic paper in the late-1930s into the 1940s.
