Selected animation and 3D books for Spring 2012

Here are some of the cool new books that I’ve spotted on the Spring 2012 publisher lists…

Animating the Unconscious: Desire, Sexuality and Animation from Columbia University Press. 1st March.

Machinima: The Art and Practice of Virtual Filmmaking from respected publisher McFarland. 15th March.

Enviro-Toons: Green Themes in Animated Cinema and Television, again from respected publisher McFarland. Also on 15th March.

3D Animation Essentials, from respected publisher John Wiley. 21st March, but it seems to be available now as a Kindle ebook version.

Character Mentor: Learn by Example to Use Expressions, Poses, and Staging to Bring Your Characters to Life from veteran British instructional publisher Focal Press. 13th May 2012. This is meant for old-school 2D artists, but seems likely to be of value to those making webcomics with characters and poses output from iClone.

ZBrush Creature Design: Creating Dynamic Concept Imagery for Film and Games. Yet another from John Wiley publishers. Out on the 18th May 2012.

  1. Very interesting line up of books. Thanks for the post. Looks like you’re forcing me to spend money again. 🙂

    • I’m getting the Machinima book from McFarland for review, but hadn’t thought of requesting the others. Thanks for the suggestion, David!
