An original background color key concept from the Don Bluth Studios animated film The Land Before Time (1988). Featuring a progression image of Littlefoot sadly searching for his mother in a downpour, the background color key concept was created at the studio and used during the animation process. The concept was used to develop and finalize the color palette, 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. This particular concept work has a cel overlay with rain detailed painted onto it. Measuring 4.5"x7.5" overall, with the character image measuring 4.25"x7.25", the background concept is in very good condition with minimal edge wear.
