Pressestimmen

For most of its history the Walt Disney Animation Studio kept their techniques carefully guarded secrets. With Stanchfield for the first time you see a real Disney master at work teaching his charges real principles.
Tom Sito. Director, animator, author. Disney animator from 1987 to 1995 - credits include Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin.
A great account of the training and development within the Disney studios during what could rightly be claimed to be the Golden Age of animation - there is only one Walt Stanchfield.
Chris Webster, Head of Animation at the University of the West of England.

"For nearly thirty years, the artists that passed through the gates of Disney Animation, and even non-artists like myself, were influenced by the craft, skill, wisdom, writings and sketches of Walt Stanchfield."
- Roy Disney
"This exciting collection of master classes by the great teacher Walt Stanchfield is destined to become a classic on the order of Kimon Nicolaides' exploration of the drawing process. Stanchfield inspired several generations of Disney animators and those of us outside the studio fortunate enough to happen upon dog-eared copies of his conversational notes, which we passed around like Leonardo's Codex Leicester. Stanchfield beautifully communicates the essence and joy of expressing ideas through the graphic line and accumulating a visual vocabulary. Drawn to Life is a treasure trove of cogent, valuable information for students, teachers and anyone who loves to draw."
- John Canemaker, NYU professor and Academy Award(R)-winning animation filmmaker

For nearly thirty years, the artists that passed through the gates of Disney Animation, and even non-artists like myself, were influenced by the craft, skill, wisdom, writings and sketches of Walt Stanchfield.

Roy Disney

Walt was a kind of Mark Twain for us at Disney. He always taught with humor and skill. You learned to see the world through his eyes. I remember him one day encouraging us to leap into our drawings with boldness and confidence, "Don't be afraid to make a mistake. We all have 10,000 bad drawings in us so the sooner you get them out the better!" Sitting in Walt's class was as much a psychology course as it was a drawing class. One couldn't help walk away with your mind and soul a little more open than when you entered.

Glen Keane, Walt Disney Animation Studios

Walt Stanchfield's classes and writings were little distillations of the man: quirky, strongly stated in a genial voice, and brimming with a lifetime of sharp observations about story telling and graphic communication. Whether he drew with a ball point pen or painted with a brush dipped in his coffee cup, he got to the essence of things and was eager to share what he learned to his eager disciples, myself among them. He was grizzled and he was great and proof that there was more than one Walt at the Disney Studio that could inspire a legion of artists.

John Musker, Walt Disney Animation Studios

Walt Stanchfield was one of Disney Animation's national treasures. His classes and notes have inspired countless animation artists, and his approach to drawing of caricature over reality, feeling over rote accuracy, and communication over photographic reproduction gets to the heart of what great animation is all about. Huzzah to Don Hahn for putting it all together for us!

Eric Goldberg, Walt Disney Animation Studios

During the Animation Renaissance of the 1990s, one of the Walt Disney Studio's best kept secrets was Walt Stanchfield. Once a week after work, this aged but agile figure jumped from drawing board to drawing board, patiently teaching us the principles behind the high baroque style of Walt Disney Animation drawing. Being in a room with Walt made you feel what it must have been like to have been taught by Don Graham. Having one of your life drawings be good enough to be reproduced in one of his little homemade weekly bulletins was akin to getting a Distinguished Service medal! Senior animators vied with trainees for that distinction.

Tom Sito, Animator/Filmmaker/Author of Drawing The Line: The Untold Story of the Animation Unions from Bosko to Bart Simpson

This exciting collection of master classes by the great teacher Walt Stanchfield is destined to become a classic on the order of Kimon Nicolaides' exploration of the drawing process. Stanchfield (1919-2000) inspired several generations of Disney animators and those of us outside the studio fortunate enough to happen upon dog-eared copies of his conversational notes, which we passed around like Leonardo's Codex Leicester. Stanchfield beautifully communicates the essence and joy of expressing ideas through the graphic line and accumulating a visual vocabulary. DRAWN TO LIFE is a treasure trove of cogent, valuable information for students, teachers and anyone who loves to draw.

John Canemaker, NYU professor and Academy Award-winning animation filmmaker

Walt Stanchfield, in his own unique way, taught so many of us about drawing, caricature, motion, acting and animation. Most important to me, was how Walt made you apply what you had observed in his life drawing class to your animation. Disney Animation is based on real life, and in that regard Walt Stanchfield's philosophy echoed Walt Disney's:

'We cannot caricature and animate anything convincingly until we study the real thing first.'

Andreas Deja, Walt Disney Animation Studios

Walt Stanchfield's renewed emphasis on draftsmanship at the Disney Studios transformed the seemingly moribund art of animation. His students were part of a renaissance with The Little Mermaid and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, a renaissance that continues with films ranging from The Iron Giant to Lilo and Stitch to Wall-E.

Charles Solomon, Animation Historian

I'm so grateful to Focal Press for publishing these fabulous Walt Stanchfield books. They are veritable 'gold dust' for the serious (and aspiring) animator! So 'hurrah' to Focal and 'hurrah' to Don Hahn to committing himself to compiling them. I ordered my copies the minute I saw them and will of course hope my students are smart enough to do so too!

Tony White, DigiPen, Author of 'Animation: From Pencil to Pixels' and 'How to Make Animated Films'

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Don Hahn's name is synonymous with some of the most critically acclaimed animated motion pictures of this generation, including The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Lion King, and Beauty and the Beast (the first animated film ever nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture--before the Best Animated Film category was established). He was also the associate producer for Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the groundbreaking 1988 film that pioneered new techniques for combining animation and live-action. His other film credits include Fantasia/2000 and Atlantis. He is currently at work on his next Disney animated film and writing several other books including The Art of Disney Animation: The Storytellers.

In diesem telefonbuchdicken Wälzer hat Don Hahn Skripte der Zeichenkurse, die Walt Stanchfield, ein langjähriger Disneyzeichner und seinem Schreibstil nach ein humorvoller Mensch, über mehrere Jahre für die neue Generationen von Disneyzeichnern abhielt, zusammengefasst. Darunter sind die Zeichner gewesen, die Filme wie Arielle, König der Löwen und Die Schöne und das Biest entstehen ließen und auch die Gründer von Pixar.
Allein das ist schon mal ziemlich cool - dieselben Sachen lesen, wie die Leute, die diese großartigen Filme gemacht haben.
Doch auch ansonsten ist das Buch für jeden der Interesse am Zeichnen, besonders von Comics und Animationsfilmen hat, Gold wert. Tipps, was man beachten muss, größtenteils unterstützt von Zeichnunen, und wie man sich verbessern kann. Ich habe immer gern gezeichnet, in den letzten Jahren allerdings sehr wenig. Nachdem ich das Buch angefangen hatte zu lesen, habe ich mir ein neues Skizzenbuch gekauft und sofort los gelegt, so sehr hat mich das Gelesene fasziniert. Daher kann ich es auch nur weiterempfehlen (und das obwohl ich noch nicht mal komplett durch bin, denn es ist wirklich SEHR dick!).

Von Thorti am 29. September 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Drawn to Life gibt einen detailierten Einblick in das Arbeiten der Disneyzeichner. Wenn man das Buch zum ersten Mal durchblättert wird man feststellen, das extrem viel Text und eigentlich sehr wenige ZEichnungen existieren. Das liegt daran, das Zeichne rund Illustratoren mehr gedanklich arbeiten, und mit Konzepten zu tunhaben, als letztendlich mit der eigentlichen Zeichnarbeit. Es ist mehr ein Buch über die Hintergründe und Gedanken, die ein guter Zeichner sher schnell für seine eigenen Arbeiten umzusetzen weiß, als eine Bildershow.

Also eine "wissenschaftliche" Erarbeitung des Zeichenstils - kein Nachmalbuch.

Dieses Buch ist absolut Fantastisch für den der mehr über das einführen der "Seele" in einer Zeichnung lernen will.
Es ist kein Anleitungsbuch für Zeichenanfänger. Nichtsdestotrotz eignet es sich für alle diejenigen die weniger über das "richtige" Zeichnen, sondern mehr über das "echte " Zeichnen Lernen wollen.
Der Moment in dem man aufhört die "Linien" zu sehen und den "Charakter" der Zeichnung wahr zu nehmen. Dafür ist dieses Buch gut geeignet.
Man muss allerdings viel Lesen und sollte sich, wie in einem Lehrplan, ein Kapitel pro Woche abarbeiten und gute Fortschritte zu machen.
Jeden Euro und Zeit Wert.

eines der besten "how to" bücher bzgl. zeichnen. vor allem weil es nicht wie die meißten "how to" bücher auf techniken eingeht und zeigt wie man in 3 leichten schritten eine eule malt, sondern eher über das mindset spricht das man haben sollte/muss um gute bilder zu produzieren - egal welches medium man nutzt - ganz klare kaufempfehlung!!!

egal auch welches von den beiden Büchern......das hier ist ein wenig dicker also wenn man sich nur eins von beiden holt dann das hier

HASH(0x8f290300) von 5 Sternen A must have for any aspiring Disney animators 13. April 2009
Von M. Gabriel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
These two volumes are a master class in Disney style animation thinking. Essentially, a goldmine of what we learned here at Disney as young animators trying to follow in the shoes of the masters of the craft of character animation. I was lucky enough to have been taught every one of these lessons from Walt himself over my thirty years and running as an animator/story man/director/designer at Walt Disney Studios. I only wish you all could have met the man who brings this wealth of knowledge to these pages. He made you feel good just being around him. He was never dour or sour or in any way unhappy. If he was, he hid it completely from us. He was the coolest "old guy" you could ever hope to be taught by. Athletic, youthful in every way, passionate, inquisitive, searching and digging for the answers all the time. He stayed hungry for improvement his entire life and we all try to emulate that to this day and make our teacher and friend proud of us for trying. You will not only most definitely be a better artist after reading these volumes I practically guarantee you will be a better person for having gotten to know Walt Stanchfield and his way of looking at life and art as one. We all feel this way at Disney, believe me.

HASH(0x8f290354) von 5 Sternen A completely unexpected pleasure 27. April 2009
Von New England Yankee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I acquired Drawn to Life thinking it would be nice background material on typical Disney animation characters - sort of an insider's look at their production and development. Perhaps even a way to acquire some unusual character drawings. Wrong entirely!

What this book is, is a very specialized art instruction book aimed at animation artists and Disney animation artists specifically. Still, it does teach focus on, and simplification of gesture in a way that can be effectively used in any medium. Had I to reduce Drawn to Life to its barest topic, it would be just that - capturing and communicating gesture. Animation requires special techniques adapted to 2D line drawing. Those are the heart of the book, along with Walt Stanchfield's philosophy, optimism, and personification of Disney post-WWII history.

The book is a collection of Walt Stanchfield's weekly lectures to the Disney animators, consisting of drawing handouts and notes. The lecture topics were, and are, essentially random (his own term) as this wasn't intended as a course of study, but as professional development and continuing ed for an existing, highly-accomplished staff of artists. There are 149 lectures in the first volume alone, under such titles as "Using Cylinders", "Think First ...", "Get Out Of Your Way", "Action Analysis", "Silhouette", and so on.

Having dabbled in art classes and books over the years, I often find such material highly-technical ... and deadly dull. Drawn to Life is neither. Though the volume is large (nearly 400 pages), each lecture chapter is short and to the point. Stanchfield's teaching style is literate and personable, often humorous and riddled with stories. Drawings accompanying each lecture are quite loose and sketchy, invariably on-point, and amazingly convincing. Who knew that the subtlest shift in the slant of a line could be so compelling?

I walked away with a renewed appreciation for animation artists, an enhanced vocabulary that includes terms like stretch and squish, and tools I lacked to evaluate animation quality. Recommended, not just for artists, but for anyone intrigued by animation. Naturally, the Disney characters and commentary sprinkled throughout are fun, too.

Von Nancy Beiman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The first volume of DRAWN TO LIFE covers mainly basic gesture drawing, while the second volume explores how to 'push' the action and create distinct personalities in gesture sketches. These two books are a wonderful addition to the library of animation.

HASH(0x8f290b58) von 5 Sternen It's a wealth of information and insight into drawing, animation and observation 5. Mai 2009
Von Parka - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Drawn to Life is a collection of lectures from long-time Disney animator Walt Stanchfield. He has worked for Disney since the 1950s.

There are two volumes, each with over 400 pages. The reason for two volumes is probably to make the books easier to handle. Both are on gesture and life drawing, even though the cover art might suggest otherwise, especially the one with the lion. You can start reading from any book and any lecture. The order isn't important.

There are plenty of essays in the books. Each is a lesson relating to drawing and animation. It can be tangent drawings, creating believable characters, learning to observe, understanding gestures, etc. There are tips on almost anything relating to drawing. Loose and sketchy sketches serves as examples to the lessons.

These books are more thinking than drawing technique books. For example, the lessons are not about how to draw perspective, the lessons are about how to use perspective. You can view sample pages for volume one and volume two on amazon.com to get an idea.

The books represent a tremendous wealth of information and insight into drawing, animation and observation. After all, Walt Stanchfield has more than 50 years of experience in animation.

This book is recommended to those who are into animation and drawing.

HASH(0x8f294600) von 5 Sternen Essential Animation/Drawing Workbook 3. Mai 2009
Von Harold G. Meeks Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Walther Stanchfield's later career with Disney was as an instructor for a wave of new animators that came to work in the 70's. Even if you are not a fan of Disney style animation, this book is essential because of the quality of writing, clarity of discussion and illustration. The author does a fantastic job of breaking down drawing and animation concepts in a way that is useful for both those who are getting started and those that are looking for ways to gain additional insight on their work.

The format for this book is in the form of a series of lectures, focused on many different aspects of animation and drawing. Many of these are no more than a page and a half, with illustrations. Content ranges from the very specific "how to" type of instruction to more generalized concepts. In one example he illustrates an important principle of drawing for those just beginning, breaking down complex shapes into boxes, and then add back in the complexity little by little. "What Not to See" discusses what to begin with and what to leave out when sketching. From there the book launches into other essential subjects such as gesture, action, perspective. "Draw Verbs, not Nouns!" The way that the book is laid out is in general sections, but inside each section, the topics encourage browsing and skipping around.

The editor made little or no changes to the author's writing, and illustrations are the author's own examples that he chose, in some cases from xeroxed copies that he handed out in class (not to worry, the quality is fine throughout). For the cost of this book you are getting access to the same kind of instruction that Disney's own animators had access to. It is quite a bargain.
