Daily Disney copy: Melody Time

A few months ago, in a moment of animation-geek weakness, I bought myself the 2006 Disney Day to Day Calendar. It has daily prints from Disney animation films throughout the years, each with a few words about the film. Needless to say, I never actually used the thing :)

A few days ago I decided to try sketching a daily copy of the daily frame. I seems like a good way of exploring different drawing styles and characters, as well as principles of composition and layout. This one is a free copy of a frame from Melody Time (1948). I didn't really try to make an exact copy, or even be on model; instead, I tried to capture the essence of the frame's appeal and composition.

C&C is more than welcome!
