The $100,000 Animation Drawing Course

John “Ren & Stimpy” Kricfalusi is teaching the masses the basics of animation, via Preston Blair’s book “Cartoon Animation.” I walked down to Oscar’s Books yesterday and picked up the combined volume 1 & 2, which is slightly different than the pages that John and Steven Worth have put up on their sites.

Here is my attempt at Lesson 1: Construction: The Head

What’s happening is I am copying Preston’s drawings in blue, then scanning them in and laying them overtop the original. I’ve marked in red and added notations where my drawing deviates from Preston’s.
(I have not put up every drawing – there’s just too many. But trust me, I did them. And I’ll put up more for lesson two soon.)

  1. Very cool Toren. Maybe I’ll pick up the books for Bev. as we have an Oscar’s two blocks away!

  2. Thanks for commenting on my blog entry, Toren. You have really worked hard on these and I have to say it pays off, you’re pretty much on model every time.

    All the best.
