CEL BACKGROUND INFO
A cel, short for celluloid, is a transparent sheet on which objects are drawn or painted for traditional, hand-drawn animation. Actual celluloid (consisting of cellulose nitrate and camphor) was used during the first half of the 20th century, but since it was flammable and dimensionally unstable it was largely replaced by cellulose acetate. With the advent of computer assisted animation production, the use of cels has been practically abandoned in major productions. Disney stopped using cels in 1990 when Computer Animation Production System (CAPS) replaced this element in their animation process.
Production Paper Drawing
Before an animation cel can be created the artist must first sketch the scene onto paper to later trace onto the acetate. These drawings are as original as they come and can accompany many of our production cels that are for sale.
An image which may or may not have appeared in an animated film that has been printed -- by serigraphraphy -- onto an animation cel, usually as part of a limited edition. A sericel would not have been photographed in the making of an animated film.
Similar to a Sericel this cel would not have been used in the cartoon its self but would still have been hand painted and used as marketing material.
