A guide to the art of animation. It teaches all of the basics of animation and also some tips on how to improve, or start down the road to becoming an animator. It also includes the various principles and fundamentals of animation that every animator needs to know to start making animations. Written by the famous animator, Richard Williams and describes his techniques to making characters come to life.
Animator's Survival Guide, by Richard Williams, is famous and useful. It has a plethora of animation tips that can be useful to anyone who wishes to become an animator. I like that this book also has graphics in it, it really helps convey the idea than if he just explained with words. This might be a long read, but the amount of information in this book makes it worth it. I don’t think there’s anything I dislike about this book, it’s a genuinely great guide for any animator.
