Walt Disney challenged his artists to create a “moving illustration” in which every frame of film could exist independently as a beautiful picture. To enhance the film’s illustrated look, Disney enlisted the talents of studio background artist and color stylist, Eyvind Earle. Earle fused Gothic French, Italian and Renaissance influences with his own abstract style of realism to create much of the formalized beauty and stylish design seen in Sleeping Beauty. Earle’s influence was also felt in the character design which was strongly vertical and angular in contrast to the more familiar soft and round designs of previous animated films.
