Milt Kahl used a thin felt pen for his exploratory sketches during production of The Rescuers.

He produced a ton of these sheets searching for the most inventive poses, expressions and acting patterns. Even if the scene is only 16 frames long, like the one shown here, Milt tried several variations on the main idea of Medusa freaking out at the sight of two mice.

I love the energy in these drawings, and the lines of that felt pen seem to be dancing on the paper.
