The Barks Treatment
It's interesting to compare the 1988 cover below by Daan Jippes with the bottom cover from 1949. With the exact same pose and everything, Jippes' rendering gave the characters spirit and liveliness that the original cover lacked. He gave it the 'Barks treatment'.

Wow. Nice catch! A very instructional comparison indeed.
It's really remarkable how Jippes punches everything up by pushing the expressions a little further... especially Donald! Also, subtle touches of small cast shadows really make the forms pop. Thanks for sharing this... it's really fascinating!
