ambiguous : It’s such a shame that your character was never used. The designs and sketches of him are brilliant!

Why : That's so awesome! I'm Chinese and I think your Asian faces are very on point and I love them

NicoToonZ ProductionZ : It's wonderful to see how good Disney was with their hand-drawn animation back in the day.

Bunda Bear Productions : Wow that was so awesome to see. Those drawings you did for Mulan were amazing!!

LivSkyo : You're a real inspiration, Aaron! I wish we could buy prints of some of these sketches - I'd love to frame one. Thanks for sharing!

Amelia Seyruun : I'm an animation student and it's my dream to work for Disney as an animator or illustrator. Mulan is one of my favorite Disney movies ever.

Kate : Brother bear was my childhood. Wow. Thanks. That’s awesome. I learned how to draw the Disney bears by copying the cover of the dvd case over and over again. Awesome! That’s crazy.

SonderBeyondHer : 12:34 "Does this dress make me look fat?" LOL such a good impression

Big Bubba Gaming : This is probably the greatest video I've ever watched! I love Milan and learning the multiple processes an plans that were put out before the movie was even in production is fascinating! I always wanted to do Disney character designs and this video inspires me to practice more on my anatomy and facial expressions. I'll never live the dream of designing the characters but it won't stop me from trying.

Zidders Roofurry : The fact you took the time to learn to sketch them in a non-stereotyped way is awesome. I love Mulan and really appreciate getting to see this stuff. Do you have any plans to digitize these? Even if only to save them should something unfortunate happen to them.

Prashobh Nair : Hey. Don't know if you would come across this, but you have been an inspiration to me. Thank you

Jordan Briskin : Aside from the few *BEAUTY AND THE BEAST* and *RESCUERS DOWN UNDER* drawings, I noticed that the vast majority of these pieces were from *MULAN;* I, for one, would have appreciated seeing some of your work from *POCAHONTAS,* *ALADDIN* and *LION KING,* in addition....

numufu : I wish I could have seen some early drawings from The Lion King. Do you plan to upload more?

Amberfanged : It's really cool to see some of your old drawings!

Tony Music : I'll do algebra, I'll put up with calculus, I'll even push through trigonometry... But graphing is where I draw the line!

Lyn A. : I feel like I'm looking through an awesome art museum. Thanks for showing us these, sir!

Koneko Kawaii : Hi ! Amazing art ! Could you show us old drawing from the lion king ? It's my favorite disney movie :)

kalk : Your *simple drawings* are amazing! How can you be so good at these stuff?


Olivia Coucci : Thank you so much for showing this! I've been struggling recently with whether I want to focus on storyboarding or animating and every time I see your videos I feel that spark that I felt the first time I knew I wanted to be an animator. This video couldn't have come at a better time for me. I already have a stack of papers beside me ready to draw some characters!! Thank you for inspiring me to become an animator!

Richard Mika : the pink drawings of the beast had a neat look

Jackeri-Jack : Anyone else feel as though Mulan would have been a far more interesting adult animated film than a kid's film? The traitorous General plus the storyboards that develope Shan Yu's character showed a lot of potential for this.

Aaron Welch : That is a true treasure you have right there. great work!

Angelica000 : treasure!

StageLined : 17:04 Disney would never have the nerve!!

Edwin Nande Gutierrez : I know u posted this a long time ago, but I have a question: When do you know you reach the final design of the character you are visually searching for? I mean it just keeps kinda evolving and going from iconic to realistic, and so on° but yeah, when do you see your design and go : This is the one. ?

Daaver Shah : New Subscriber. Thankyou.

dasha : Wow, you paint very nicely.

Kenneth Garza : You truly are a huge inspiration to me and I would like to see more of lion kind please!! Also who did Tarzan? That's my number one film of all time.

Rachel Lane : That was AWESOME!!!! So much work!!! God you just don't appreciate the hours and hours you guys put in!!! Especially for characters that don't even make the film!!! Full respect! ;)

leerag : Sorry but I laughed....this is old....as old as the camera man. Awesome to see

Angelica Square : What an honor and great experience watching this, being an animation student at the Academy of Art

Stephanie Wozny : Man, what a treasure trove!

Nialler 329 : That's amazing! very encouraging to see it took some trial and error even for the best of best!

Farhan Haque : So sorry he was not in the movie. He looks like a formidable villain.

Cute Queen : These are so cool to see i love all of them

Marc Hendry : Beautiful work Aaron. It's no wonder why you went far so early in your career

Buckethead Props : Love those beast drawings, incredible :D

yogissjKaio : Awesomely amazing ! superb art works, nothing beats hand drawn animation :)

ArtSkullz : Hello! I have been watching your stuff for a couple years now. I am really impressed with the stuff that you created 20 years ago, and even more so your newest works. I wanted to ask you for a bit of advice. I sketch everyday, and practice everyday, and Its clear that I am improving quickly due to that. However, I cannot seem to find any projects or jobs to apply these skills to in order to further improve myself. This is local to where I live of course. I really long for the kind of projects you took part in when you were younger but i am finding that I am hitting a wall in improvement because I don't have anyone who can critique my work and mentor me on art. I don't know if you could provide me with a community or a resource where I could find a mentor? I wish there were apprenticeships these days but it doesn't seem to be a popular concept anymore. Its one thing to draw constantly but that feedback I really need is missing, and I am not able to attend an art school to find teachers. Any suggestion would be extremely appreciated and helpful. Keep up the amazing videos!

Samuel Read Art : Awesome! I love hearing you talk through your thinking and the processes when designing the characters. Gives great insight into the industry back then, as well as great ideas for when I'm creating my own characters for work and personal projects! Thanks guys. Inspiring as always.

minru : Those are amazing drawings! It'd be great if you can share more of such sketch drawings in the future videos, and maybe explain your thoughts when you're designing those characters, what you take note of, how you'd go about create diff characters but that looks diff but fit in the same world, etc. Nevertheless, thanks for sharing!!

Big Bubba Gaming : I need to practice different cultural faces and different angles of each face and facial expressions a lot. I'm not that good at anatomical drawings unless I physically see an image or person in the pose I'm wanting for the drawing.

Richard Harpe : Your work is EPIC! Absolutely love your style(s) and always wanted to be a Disney animator like yourself. But alas, life took me in different direction. ;)

Saurischian Designer : Wow! Mulan is my favorite Disney animated film. Seeing these sketches for it was really inspiring!

Jakob Hardiman : I would do anything to buy some of those sketches from Mulan, its is one of my favourites and a big inspiration.

shereenty alashery : amazing tour love all of them mulan is my favorite movie and mo is the most lovely character to me thanks do more videos plz

Manou van Aart : I'm 17 now and I will always love disney movies. My favourite is the lion king. If you can make something like that, thats so wow. How doe you sketch so fast? Because my problem is I want to draw in details... x manou

Ryu Usuka : masterrrrr

SketchArtOfSanchez : Enjoyable to watch some more behind the scenes of Mulan here. Thanks for that Aaron & Dustin!
