Last weekend I saw UP! and it was seriously amazing. The story, the animation...just incredible. Um, I cried...a lot...and was thankful for the 3-d glasses I was wearing! I'm always in awe of animators, but I especially like seeing their character sketches because they draw in a completely different way than other artists. They can just "see" a fictional character from every angle and it's completely imaginative, existing in his own world. I'd love to do more sketching like that. Some excellent pieces from Disney's Hollywood Studios Animation exhibit-
Pixar's The Art of Up - on my Amazon wish list!
