Wondercon 2014- Disney's Master Teachers: Life Drawing For Animation
Disney has a long tradition (dating back to
the 1930s) of running life drawing classes for its animators. The idea
is that understanding and mastering actual anatomy improves animated
drawings and gestures. Disney's current master teachers-Karl Gnass, Mark McDonnell, and Bob Kato-will
talk about their creative philosophies, their approach to life drawing
and gesture, how classical drawing translates to animation, and what
animation studios look for in artists. Best of all, they'll alert you to
the classes they run for civilians. Disney visual development artist Dan Cooper will weigh in on how these classes have improved his animation skills. Moderated by Fast Company's Susan Karlin.
