An original preliminary background and production cel from the Don Bluth Studios animated video game Dragon's Lair (1983). Featuring Dirk, the cel was created at the studio and used during the animation process, and is actual frame of animation that was photographed and appears in the game. The background is labeled "NG," which stands for "No Good," denoting that the studio painted a different background for the scene before shooting the scene. With the background measuring 10.5"x13.5", the cel measuring 10.5"x12.5", and the character image measuring 10"x9", this piece is in fine condition with minor edge wear to the background from studio use and handling. The piece has been framed (not pictured).
