Production drawings include roughs of three types: Key drawings which are important poses or moments drawn by the principal animators. Breakdowns drawn by the animator and his assistant, and In-betweens which are drawn by the assistant. Once roughs are approved they go to Clean-up which is a tracing of the original animation rough. These are the most refined of the drawings, though some collectors prefer the roughs because they can have more life and expression and are more likely to be drawn by the key animator.350

Original production drawings are one-of-a-kind pieces of animation art. Prior to the creation of cels, each character pose and action must be drawn in pencil. These drawings are the artistic backbone of the film or television show, and are much in demand by collectors.
While they lack the vivid colour of cels, drawings are very desirable for two main reasons. Many collectors prefer drawings because it is at this stage that the animators have really exercised their talents and brought the characters to life. Another appealing aspect of drawings is that they generally cost significantly less than a comparable production cel.
Original production drawings are a wonderful addition to any animation collection, and a great way to enjoy the artistry behind your favourite characters. See What To Look For In A Good Cel Or Drawing.
