I'm not particularly fond on books trying to teach you how to draw. And the idea of this blog is not to bring you that sort of books. But i think this one is different: first, you got some amazing drawings by Goldman, Pomeroy and Don Bluth.

It uses cels, pics, backgrounds and storyboards from Don most famous movies; so it's almost like an artbook of his career. If you don't know him, Don Bluth is the director of: The Secret of NIMH (1982);An American Tail (1986); The Land Before Time (1988); All Dogs Go To Heaven (1989); Thumbelina (1994); Anastasia (1997); Bartok The Magnificent (1999); Titan A.E. (2000) among others. He also made the designs for the famous Graphic Adventure Dragon's Lair (1983).

John Pomeroy and Gary Goldman worked as animators in most of the 70's Disney productions, including: Robin Hood (1973); Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too (1974) and The Rescuers (1976). Gary was the Director of animation for the beautifull film The Small One (1978). Both were close colaborators in all Don Bluth's films.

Don explains his techniques using scenes and characters from his movies as examples;
So, though this book is intended for future artists and specialist, even a layman can enjoy it.
