Art Book Collection Batch 6
The Art of Roger Rabbit
I am a huge fan of this movie. This book is not so much heavy on the artwork of the movie. It is packed with tons of screen caps from the film. It does have some illustration in it though. This seems to be the only book I can find on this movie.
The Art of Lion King
Now I’m not a big fan of animal movies. I don’t know why but they are not the ones I watch most often compared to Disney’s human character movies. I confess I don’t own the Lion King Movie. It is a beautiful film but doesn’t catch my interest I guess. I found this book for 2 dollars which is why I own it. It is not as big as the art of book but has many beautiful sketches and concept art from the movie.
Character Animation Crash Course
I haven’t had a chance to read this book yet. Its been sitting on my shelf. I have heard great things from it though. It is by the great Eric Goldberg.
Don Bluth’s The Art of Animation Drawing
Another great book by Don Bluth. He needs to write more books. This one is filled with great information on animation as well as many examples taken from his work. He even interviews one of the nine old men in it!
This little treasure is a joy to look through. Its small but packed with a lot of great sketches based on all the Disney Dogs. Even Stitch!
The Art and Feel of Making it Real
I really like this book and enjoy reading Mark’s insights. He even drew me a mermaid on one of the pages! It is great to have to understand all that deals with drawing a character and understanding the keys.
Son of Faster Cheaper
This book is by the great Floyd Norman. It was a joy talking with him about Disney and his experiences. This man knows everything. You see him in all the special features talking about the old Disney Films. He is really funny in real life and very approachable. This book is filled with his comics based on the politics of the film studio world.
Children’s Book Illustration
I just picked this up from the used bookstore. Its great to see many old classic children’s illustrations and the different styles the artists have. I’m hoping it will teach me to branch out.
This is what you would call a fun side book I guess. It does have concept art and sketches but its a comical way of categorizing the characters of Disney with their likes, hobbies, etc.
The Making of Aladdin
This is my favorite Disney movie. Unfortunately this is the only book I can find on it. Its small and thin and has sketches and artwork but not as much as you’d think. Most the pictures have been shown online or in other Disney compiled books. What a shame.
Alice in Wonderland Visual companion
Here’s my baby. Thus far this was a dream movie to work on. Its not often you can stumble across working on a movie that you really want to work on. I was excited to see a book on the movie. Hearsay was going around that there wasn’t going to be a book. I put in a picture of one of my shots up there. The book is filled with screen shots of the movie as well as production photos and artwork. Some even from Bobby Chiu.
David Colman’s Doodles vol 2
This man can draw animals. I’ve been trying to draw more animals so this helps me look at inspiring work and hopefully do well. This is a great mini book with lovely work.
The Art of Skydoll
I love this guys style. So much that I bought an Italian version of this book. Unfortunately it was the only one available. Its filled with the rough layouts and the final inked panels. Great way to see progression.
The Art of Walt Disney
I came across this at my Art Store. It was a used cheap book. I was surprised to find it has many Disney artwork that I’ve never seen before!
