Just letting you guys know that if you like looking at kick ass work, get the Art of the Phantom Menace. This book is great, IMHP its better than the previous books. Also pick up the Tarzan Chronicles, damn those disney guys can draw their asses off!! Too bad their story guys suck

Disney guys sure can draw... 'cept humans. Haven't seen Tarzan yet, but the stuff I HAVE seen, makes me think that Disney still should stick to animals. Really, Tarzan is butt-ugly. Same goes for almost all of their human characters in previous movies. IMHO.

Your sadly mistaken, having met both anime, and disney aniamtors i can tell you first hand that disney guys can draw the human figure with the best of them. They play around alot with style and design in order to animate to the extent they. Go check out the Art of Pocohontas or tarzan and you'll see what i mean.

BTW. In order to apply for a disney job your portfolio must consist of mostly figure and animal drawings. Cant rely on heavy ass rendering or photoshop do hide the fact you cant draw hands or feet

I'll take your word for it, since you seem to be a "bit" more familiar to the topic. But consider this then a layman's take on Disney.
Though, I'm still waiting for that movie from Disney in which the humans actually look like real people, instead of cartoon figures or representations of people. But this brings up the problem of why even bothering to do almost photorealistic animation, when you can just make a real life movie out of it?

Good point. It depends on how you go about animating i guess. As long as you stay away from rotoscoping (tracing Live-action on film) you animation usually stays fresh.
