An original background color key concept painting from the Don Bluth Studios production of The Land Before Time (1988). Featuring Cera running across a beautiful landscape, the hand-painted concept was created at the studio and used during the production of the film. The characters are painted on a cel layer with all of the background imagery painted on a layer of illustration paper. The concept was used to develop and finalize the color palette for the scene, the layout of the action, and the overall feel of the scene. When a color concept is finalized during production, it becomes the reference tool that animators use to paint cels and backgrounds, as well as to further progress through the storyboarding and layout of the individual scenes. Measuring 5.75"x9"overall, with an image size of 4.25"x7.5", the concept is in very good condition with some light edge wear and smudging on the bottom right margin.
