The Animator's Workbook offers a complete course on the principles and techniques of drawn animation. Stressing that animation is a subtle and exacting art form which breathes life into inanimate drawings, Tony White, an award-winning animator, covers every aspect of the process. He provides technical information and explains in easy-to-follow text and step-by-step illustrations, how to capture movement, expression, and emotion. He shows you how to convncingly animate birds and animals and explores special effects - wind, water, fire, and solid objects - that can add realism, drama, and atmosphere to animation.
This book takes the mystery out of the animation process and provides sound, reliable guidance and information. Topics include:
The Process of Animation
The Animator's Toolkit
The Animal Kingdom
Tony White, one of Britain's foremost animators, was head of design and background on the animated television series Jackson Five, and won first prize at the Chicago Film Festival, with his first short film, Quartet. He assisted Richard Williams, the internationally acclaimed film director, on A Christmas Carol, which won an Academy Award for animation. White lives in London with his wife and two daughters.
I also have "Cartooning: Animation 1 with Preston Blair (HT26)". I have browsed through Richard Williams' "The Animator's Survival Kit" and that seemed too much for me to handle. I'm not an animator by trade but a wannabe. I look forward to improving my animation skills with this book! I also got this book for an excellent price!
6/14/05 - I just received my book. I will be using flash to create web based cartoons! This book is very appealing to me and doesn't intimidate me. I need a book like this because I'm not an animator by trade. You must pick this book, "Cartooning: Animation 1 with Preston Blair (HT26)" or "Cartoon Animation" if you are a beginner. All three books are excellent choices if you want to create flash cartoons! I prefer "Cartooning: Animation 1 with Preston Blair (HT26)" more than the other books.
I did have the pleasure of having Tony as my professor.
His down to earth teaching style kept the classroom moving and motivated.
In this book Tony covers all the aspects and equipment you need to get started with 2D animation.
For those of you with interest, this book covers bipeds and quadrupeds.
If you are getting into 2D or 3D, this is one reference book I would always have handy on the shelf.
If you are a serious animator look for Tony's Bible.
I call it the bible since it is over 500 pages (there is a reference book and a half).
