Concept Art, Early Woody, Toy Story, 1995

This is a Concept art. It is dated 1995. Its medium is acrylic on board.

Pixar’s design process often requires many iterations of its characters to arrive at a final design. In early iterations of Woody for Toy Story, Pixar artists explored the idea of the character as a ventriloquist’s dummy with a moveable lower jaw. He later became a smaller, cloth toy.
