Format: Paperback
This book is not for people who are interested in becomingserious animators. The book seems to be geared towards children whoare interested in how animation works. So if you are a seriousanimation student I would have to warn you to stay clear of this book. However, this is a good book to give the little kiddies on how animation works. On the bases of it being a Childrens book about animation I would have to give it 5 stars. Since I am sort of an animator in training I would have to give it 2 stars for content. Why? You ask because the content is very brief and does not go into much detail. ...

I find myself constantly going back to this book, above all my other books on cartooning and animation, to see how certain techniques are done. There's a ton of extremely well-crafted cartoons and figures shown in the book. Christopher Hart writes clearly and intelligently, and addresses issues any animator or cartoonist must grapple with in order to break past personal plateaus in artistic development.
I constantly refer to this book as a guide for basic animal and human movement, as well as for ideas for character creation. Christopher Hart's characters sparkle with a certain magical quality that is, in my opinion, the hallmark of a truly gifted artist.
I'm pleased to say that I've made tremendous progress in my own work since using this book.

I was extremely disappointed in this book. It has very little real content and the book only touches very briefly on many topics. The concepts contained in the book could have been written on 3 sheets of paper. My guess it is written for children to see some of the animation concepts

I am 14 years old and want to become an animator when I grow up and I got this book and read it cover to cover and loved it. It really explained the basic techniques and had some great tips and tricks to animation. I also have other Chis Hart books that I just love. These include: "How To Draw Cartoon Animals" and "Chistopher Hart's Portable Animation Studio." Chris Hart is a great artist and auther and I would suggest his books to anyone who is interested in cartooning or animation. Eric Wold

I really enjoyed How to Draw Animation. It covered a wide range of topics from the basics, to creating your own characters, to making your characters walk and run, to the animation process. I think this book is a good guide to animation for anyone; whether it's just a hobby or a possible career interest. The book is brimming with beautiful illustrations and clear instructions. Anyone who loves animation should go out and buy this book.

This book is weak. Not worth the purchase and the material covered is awfully thin. By no means does it teach you the art of animation. It just has weak pictures to give you a basic ruff idea but it is by no means a thorough book. Buy something else instead.
