THE 12 PRINCIPLES OF ANIMATION


I bought my copy of
THE ILLUSION OF LIFE
when I was in high school.
I saw it a 
B. Daltons bookstore 
in the 
Montgomeryville Mall
and asked my Mom to 
buy it for me.

I studied it
obsessively,
even if I couldn't 
remotely 
draw what was inside.

But I could follow the
PRINCIPLES
described in
this thick slab of
animation knowledge.

And those very same principles
have been described wonderfully by
 Cento Lodigiani
in this sooper fun video:


If you don't have
THE ILLUSION OF LIFE
make sure to pick it up.

It's
STILL
an important part
of an animator's 
balanced
breakfast.
