My book 'Flipping Out: The Art of Flip Book Animation' describes the adventurous art of flip book animation for cartoonists interested in drawing their own handheld, moving-illustration booklets. Learn to create an animated flip book from start to finish, including brainstorming, storyboarding, penciling, inking, and coloring.
Includes: 64-page project book, 2 blank flip books to animate and a drawing pencil.
Inside cover and detail illustration of the Animating Animals chapter.
Animating a Stick Figure Exercise.
Detail illustrations of the Creating a Story chapter.
Illustrations for the Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde exercise.
Aspiring animators will learn all of the skills to create flip books of their own, including keyframes, in-betweens, animating characters, and binding their animations into a book. Using the enclosed drawing pencil and step-by-step lessons as a guide, readers can then animate and personalize the two blank flip books included inside.
