Omg this book was brilliant. You learn so much about the animation company and animating yourself. Character design, colors, expressions, early artwork, it has it all. Amazing. Read full review

User Review  - Brian Bek - Goodreads

Great book about animation at Disney. It touches on all issues regarding creating animated films. The one thing it does not teach you is how to draw. Look else where for that. Read full review
