- “Perspective! for Comic Book Artists” by David Chelsea
- The book is itself a comic and covers the subject of perspective drawing to an amazing depth (no pun intended).
- “Dynamic Anatomy” by Burne Hogarth
- Brillantly illustrated book created by a legend of the american comic industry.
- “Die Gestalt des Menschen” by Gottfried Bammes
- Well structured boo on drawing the human form.
- “Drawn to Life” Volumes 1 and 2 by Walt Stanchfield
- The lectures of Walt Stanchfield compiled into two volumes. These are wonderful books with a lot of really deep knowledge about effektive and expressive drawing for animation.
- “The Illusion of Life” by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston
- Another book packed with methods and insights straight from the industry leader.
- “The Animator’s Survival Kit” by Richard Williams
- The title is self-explanatory. The books contains the essential knowledge about the art (and craft) of classic animation.
- “Imaginative Realism” and “Color and Light” by James Gurney
- Both books are very insightful concerning their subjects. Gurney describes in detail how to achieve outstanding results using professional methods (imho most important: the use of maquettes).
- “Shadowline” by Iain McCaig
- The author is a legend of concept art and storytelling and the book doesn’t only present his work, but also, wrapped into a story of a fictional journalist who is trying to interview McCaig, teaches the reader about these subjects.
- “The Skillful Huntsman” by Khang Le, Mike Yamada, Felix Yoon and Scott Robertson
- A book about visualisation of a story, leading the reader through the whole process with an examplary visualisation of one of the story of the brothers Grimm – thus the title “the skillful huntsman”. Some excellent methods here.
