Great Sites - Animation Backgrounds

I'm very happy to report that Rob Richards is once again updating his fantastic blog Animation Backgrounds. It's a wonderful collection of images from various films, shorts, and TV shows carefully composited together to remove the characters from the backgrounds. The art of background painting is often overshadowed by character animation, so it's a real treat to get to enjoy these amazing works of art on their own.

If you don't know where to start, take a look at the backgrounds from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. As I mentioned in my analysis, the backgrounds from this film are stunning and well worth checking out.
