The Evil Queen, one of the greatest Walt Disney animated villains of all time, was created by the famous Disney animator Art Babbitt. Babbitt was already an accomplished animator prior to working on "Snow White," Disney's first full length animated film. He is was known for creating Goofy and his work on "The Country Cousin" had won an Academy Award for the studio in 1936. However, his work on the Evil Queen, which Walt Disney and Joe Grant (Walt Disney character designer and story artist) had conceived as a mix of different characters including a blend of Lady Macbeth and the Big Bad Wolf, as well as traits inspired by actresses Joan Crawford and Gale Sondergaard; would secure is place in the Walt Disney Studio. Refinement of the character of the Queen was done by animators Grim Natwick and Norm Ferguson; however the actual animation of the Queen fell to Art Babbitt.
Rotoscoping, a technique used in animation whereby live actors are used to portray the characters and then animators trace over the footage frame by frame; was not used as much on the Queen as it was on Snow White. Babbitt preferred to avoid rotoscoping and draw the character free hand. It has been stated that you could wallpaper a room with just drawings that Babbitt made just of her mouth and eyes; because all of her emotions came through her face. The Evil Queen, wonderfully voiced by veteran stage actress Lucille La Verne; holds a place in history as being the first character to ever speak in a full length animated film.
In the large drawing pictured here you can see the animators skill; and the image is from the scene when she is lifting the heart box up in her hands to present to the Huntsman.
