Former Disney animator and director, Francis Glebas will publish The Animator’s Eye in August with Focal Press and in celebration he shot a short video demonstrating how to draw one of his character designs, Iggy.
The Animator’s Eye uses Glebas’ recent animated short – In search of the Lost Fountain of Ideas as a case study for adding life to animation with timing, layout, design, color, and sound. The animated short follows the shenanigans of Iggy and Scared Bunny. Francis took 20 minutes out of his schedule to review illustrating Iggy in several poses.
The Animator’s Eye can be purchased at Amazon, BN, and wherever fine books can be found. Enjoy this previous post from Glebas where he breaks down the “design equation” and the instructional video on illustrating Iggy below.
