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.

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

These are classic books. Well worth the investment, in his opinion. We finally decided that he was wearing out the library copies!

If you are going to purchase only one book about drawing--you can't!--because, you must get Drawn to Life Volume One and Volume Two.

These books are a collection of handouts by one of the greatest drawing teachers in the world, Master: Walt Stanchfield, a man hired to teach the superb artists at the Walt Disney Feature Animation Studios at the time of the golden age of classical animation (including such wonderful films as "'The Little Mermaid'" and "'The Lion King'").

Not only are these very instructional books a fun read, but the handouts are written in such a way that you feel the benevolent Master Stanchfield standing over your shoulder, encouraging you to succeed in your artistic endeavours.

These books differ from all other books I have ever read on drawing instruction, because you get to see a student's drawing and the Master's correction drawing side by side. In my opinion, that is the only way an artist can learn: visually! A teacher standing in front of a class talking about art theory, even drawing perfect drawings, always left me slightly confused. I would draw, I would sense that my drawing is not quite right, but I never knew: why? There was the essential visual communication missing in such a lesson. Not so in these books. You have a student's drawing right next to the Master's drawing allowing you to make a comparison. The difference is astounding. Looking at a student's drawing, I would think--It looks fine to me.--, until I saw the slight (Yes: slight!) correction the Master made.

I can go on and on praising these books, but I do not care to waste more of my time, or yours. If you want your drawings (or paintings) to have life: GET THESE BOOKS and start drawing the way you always wanted to.

Drawn to Life: 20 Golden Years of Disney Master Classes Volume 1 and 2 are an absolute must have for any person interested in animation. Very in depth information to help with drawing problems, character development; everything that makes a Disney animated film sparkle with life. Easy to read and hundreds of illustrations. As an animation student, I have learned many things not taught in college. I would highly recommend both of these books for your permanent collection.
