5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, beautiful! 1 Aug 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having watched the enjoyable movie "The Princess and the Frog" about zillion times with my daughter, this book is absolutely worth purchasing! I got the feeling of really seeing the process behind animation film making.
If only there was such a thing (record? documentary?) about the film's music - which is even closer to my own interests...

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book <3 17 Jan 2010
The Princess and the Frog looks absolutely amazing, so i decided on purchasing this book....and i haven't put it down since it came through my door.

The sketches are just sooooo beautiful (pencil and digital) ; i love all the character designs especially the nefarious Dr Facilier's.

I suggest to those who are either fans of the classic Disney films and/or they've seen the film or either studying animation to buy the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old school still has its distinct charm 8 Dec 2009
Length: 0:25 Mins
Looking through the art in this book, one would not have guessed that Disney actually decided to phase out traditional animation in 2004. The Princess and the Frog essentially marks a comeback, a representation of what Disney used to be. That's good news for all fans of traditional animation.

The Art of The Princess and the Frog is filled character designs, background art and storyboards. The art is unmistakeably Disney-style -- the caricature style of characters, stylized set designs and lush colours. The story is set in New Orleans and there are plenty of background paintings in different moods. The characters are lively and backgrounds beautiful.

The team of contributing artists is impressive. There are new artists as well as familiar names. It's impossible to name all but those whose name keep appearing are Rik Maki, Armand Baltazar, Bill Schwab, James Aaron Finch (production designer), Ian Gooding (art director), Sue Nichols, Mark Henn, Chris Appelhans, Kevin Gollaher and many more.

The artists and staff contribute numerous interesting quotes. They talk about the creative process, characters, the set and a bit on the story. There are stuff like what they did or where they went for research, inspiration and influence from older classic animated films. All interesting and insightful to read.

This book a refreshing and welcome look back at traditional art, after being exposed to so much digital animation. Old school still has its distinct charm.
