5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on May 4 2009
Format: Paperback
Length: 0:18 Mins
Drawn to Life is a collection of lectures from long-time Disney animator Walt Stanchfield. He has worked for Disney since the 1950s.

There are two volumes, each with over 400 pages. The reason for two volumes is probably to make the books easier to handle. Both are on gesture and life drawing, even though the cover art might suggest otherwise, especially the one with the lion. You can start reading from any book and any lecture. The order isn't important.

There are plenty of essays in the books. Each is a lesson relating to drawing and animation. It can be tangent drawings, creating believable characters, learning to observe, understanding gestures, etc. There are tips on almost anything relating to drawing. Loose and sketchy sketches serves as examples to the lessons.

These books are more thinking than drawing technique books. For example, the lessons are not about how to draw perspective, the lessons are about how to use perspective. You can view sample pages for volume one and volume two on amazon.com to get an idea.

The books represent a tremendous wealth of information and insight into drawing, animation and observation. After all, Walt Stanchfield has more than 50 years of experience in animation.

This book is recommended to those who are into animation and drawing.

Format: Paperback
Excellent for certain purposes. If you are simply looking to draw disney-style characters etc. then this is not the book the book for you. If you are looking for some valuable insight into approaching drawing in general, as taught to disney artists and used as some of the inspiration behind their work, then this can be an excellent foundation for self improvement as an artist. In lecture format, so you can explore for a long time, just trying things without fear of missing out through continuity; it is quite extensive and again, very insightful, even for the professional artist.
