Disney lovers, cartoon lovers, art enthusiasts - this is a sight for sore eyes
on June 26, 2016
Any Disney lover would be doing themselves a favour by getting this. I was able to snag it on sale, and as an animator, this offers a lot of inspiration. There is a TON of content from many of the films we all know and love, and pieces by legendary artists showing the details of their processes. It's a visually stunning compilation, and I think it garners much appreciation whether you're an artist yourself or just a lover of cartoons.
I do think it's important to note that while this book will give you good insight into animation, it won't tell you how to do things. It will tell you how THOSE artists did things, and every artist has their own process and every project has its own criteria and pace. For those learning to animate, this won't be a book that teaches you the 12 principles or guide you step by step on how to be come a successful artist. If anything, it will just demonstrate how much time and effort goes into the success of past and existing artists.
