5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide to help explore the realms of animation, 12 Mar 2001
By 
This review is from: The Animator's Workbook (Paperback)
The book opens by defining the various types of animation, including popular techniques that are used in some forms of animation. This serves as a useful guide to allow animators to explore and consider the various medias of the art form.
The secound half of the book discusses with excellent examples the the popular physics of animation. Most noticably character animation. It shows walks, runs head turns and more difficult exagerated motions. The Workbook is useful to both those who want to get started in animation and serves as a great refence guide for the basic body movements, a definate worthwhile buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well explained advice from a master animator, 24 Aug 2009

This review is from: The Animator's Workbook (Paperback)
The beauty of this book is its simplicity. Tony White is a great, accomplished animator, yet he manages to explain the rudiments of animation clearly and concisely so that even a beginner can understand. Divided into several useful sections (inbetweening, head turns, walks, runs, etc.), the book can be read from beginning to end as a full animation course, or can be dipped into for reference. I bought the book after purchasing Preston Blair's "Cartoon Animation" and found White's far easier to understand. The Animator's Workbook allowed me to nail the all-important walk cycle that I had struggled with in Blair's book. This book was written before computers took hold of the industry, so there is no mention of them (unless there has been a revised edition), but the techniques found here are as valid for computer animators as they ever were for traditional animators.
