Art students learn to reproduce the distinctive style and vibrant colors that characterize Japanese movie animation--or anime. The author explains every stage in the creative process, from storyboarding to preparing and distributing the finished movie or video. Step-by-step tutorials demonstrate fundamental skills, such as hand-painting characters and backgrounds on separate cel layers, working with 3D graphics, and using digital pen-and-tone techniques. Separate chapters focus on stylistic techniques, animation basics such as characters' movements and lip synching, application of styles that comprise fundamentals of animated visual grammar, and other vital topics for successful movie animation. This very useful manual features more than 400 instructive color illustrations.
