An original background color key concept painting from the Don Bluth Studios production of The Land Before Time (1988). Featuring an ominous yet beautiful background of the thorny forest which protects Littlefoot and Cera from the sharp tooth, 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 6.5"x9.25" overall with an image size of 6.25"x9", the concept is in fine condition.
