Basics Animation 03: Drawing for Animation introduces readers to the practice of drawing images for use in animation. It examines the thinking process and techniques involved with drawing characters, composition and movement, narrative and adaptation.

Drawing is a fundamental part of the preparatory stages of virtually all design-led projects. It is the core method by which ideas and concepts are envisaged and ultimately shared with collaborators, clients and audiences.

Aimed at students and those interested in entering the animation business, this book explores the pre-production work essential for producing great animation. It gives readers a real insight into this work through its outstanding range of images.
