For one thing, the Animator's Survival Kit is no casual reference - it's a brick of a book overflowing with learning material. There are chapters upon chapters of really rich references and diagrams.
I hope to learn a whole lot from following this book. I will update this review when I've explored it in more detail. But so far, everything about this book seems top knotch.
If you want to be an animator, this is a MUST in your library sitting right next to your copy of the Illusion of Life.
This is CORE reading for aspiring animators and a survival guide for working professionals. For the last 11 years of my career, I have referred to this guide religiously.
A lot went over my head as I'm a digital animator and a lot of the tips and tricks were more specifically for traditional, hand-drawn, cel animation, but the techniques are still extremely handy.
The book is also quite easy to read. And not just because the language isn't overly complicated or technical. It's just a joy to sit down and study. Not dry at all and doesn't feel like a textbook.
Absolutely recommend for anyone who wants an offline guide for animation techniques.
