This classic guide by a master animator and cartoonist - and long time Disney artist - is now available for the first time since its original publication in 1946. Author Ken Hultgren instructs by example in a guide that's suitable for beginners and advanced students alike. The comprehensive range of instruction covers features and expressions, animals, foreshortening, perspective, lettering, caricature, animation, and various other aspects of cartooning. All subjects include step-by-step guides, several examples, and helpful hints and suggestions. Blank pages allow lots of room for drawing practice. Professional and amateur animators, cartoonists, caricaturists, and artists dealing with characterisation will find this timeless manual an excellent and instructive companion. AUTHOR: Ken Hultgren (1915-1968) spent his career in animation and comics, working for Walt Disney, MGM, and Screen Gems on characters from Snow White to Popeye to Aquaman. His 1949 book, The Art of Animal Drawing, is still well respected today as a pioneering guide to the characterization and mechanics of animal forms.
