  1. Wow, these look good. The top one is particularly striking; I never realized how much texture went into the Queen's gown.

    1. That's what I like about cels. You really get a good look at the actual artwork from the film.

  2. I would die to own any of these. I'd love to eventually own animation cells, especially ones from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

    1. I'd love to have one too. Nothing quite like 'em.
