Castlevania: The Art of the Animated Series
Author: Frederator Studios
Published at: 31/08/2021
ISBN: 1506715702

If you saw the Castlevania show and said damn this show is true to the games. Or maybe you just saw Castlevania the show and loved it regardless and also loved the animation style and character, creature, and settings then this book is a must have. It of course has a healthy amount of fun facts of who and what inspired certain parts of the design too. This is a visually stunning art book that does the Castlevania franchise proud. At least in my opinion. It is high quality and definitely worth it's price. I highly recommend to any Castlevania fans, gamers, vampire fans or even just good artwork fans.

Walt Disney Animation Studios The Archive Series #1: Story
Author: Walt Disney Animation Research Libr
Published at: 09/12/2008
ISBN: 1423107233

With the all digital whiz-bang flooding into movie theaters people can be excused for forgetting - or maybe never knowing - about the role that plain old fashioned drawing has played in the history of animation. It's a point of fact that it is virtually impossible to create as spontaneous and genuine a line with a computer as a talented artist can draw with a pencil. "Story" from the Walt Disney Animation Studios Archive series is a chronological sampling of storyboard frames from the earliest days of Hyperion Studios to the present. The producers of the book have done a great service to anyone interested in cartoon drawing, storyboarding, or story telling by faithfully capturing the subtleties, nuances and freshness of the animator's original drawings. While not specifically meant as a "teaching" book, "Story" is as good a guide to successful cartoon drawing as any "how to" book currently on the market.

Animation (Walt Disney Animation Studios: The Archive Series)
Author: Walt Disney Animation Research Libr
Published at: 08/12/2009
ISBN: 1423117166

It's always great to see the original drawings to remind us that these characters only lived on paper and cels. I'd love to see Disney expand this book to cover just the films from each decade. There's plenty of fantastic material in the Disney archives to fill up an encyclopedia's worth of editions. My painting teachers used to disregard animation as an art-form, but this book proves them wrong. The technique, draftsmanship, line quality is outstanding.
