I have been asked by a number of Webinar Attendees about what books I would recommend for animation. So I thought I would give you a list of all the ones I have.
Illusion of Life - Frank Thomas & Ollie Johnston
Great book on principles and history of animation. Considered by many as the bible of animation
The Animator's Survival Kit - John Williams
A fabulous resource for both traditional animation and 3D.
Stop Staring - Jason Osipa
A good resource about lip syncing and facial modeling.
Acting for Animators - Ed Hooks
Provides ways of thinking about how to approach a scene from the acting side of things.
Drawn to Life - Walt Stanchfield
A collection of notes from a long time Disney Instructor.
Simplified Drawing for Planning Animation - Wayne Gilbert (www.anamie.com)
How to draw story board if you aren't a good artist.
I hope that helps... If I run across any other good animation books I'll let you know.
