An original background color key concept painting from the Don Bluth Studios production of The Land Before Time (1988). Featuring a happy Littlefoot following the smoke clouds through a dimly lit cavern in order to find his mother, the hand-painted concept was created at the studio and used during the early production of the film. The concept was used to develop and finalize the color palette, 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 4.5"x7" overall, with an image size of 4.25"x6.75", the concept is in very good condition with minimal edge wear.
