Does anyone know what exactly Terry Gilliam used for his animations? I figure they were hand-drawn but with what?

Some of the pictures were hand drawn, but a fair number of them were colour copies of bits from old paintings etc.

They were drawn by hand and then airbrushed. Gilliam used to paint them using a no-mask, free-hand airbrush technic. The reproductions used for the animation's background (and also for some characters were usually high-contrasted photocopies of famous paintings, buildings, etc., also airbrushed, probably using a mix of inks and watercolours.
