On Our Shelves Now
Head Shots is designed by master figure artist Karl Gnass, one of the most sought-after teachers in Los Angeles, whose students include luminaries of the animation and CGI industries. In addition to his first books, Spirit of the Pose and Spirit & Force, this 112 page tutorial Head Shots dives deeply into Karl's unique approach to head drawing, while steeping his students in the classical skills, like form, tone, and volume. Simply described these imperative visual concepts and tools help even the most skilled artists find improvement in their work. "It's one thing to learn how to draw," says Karl. "It's another to learn how to see and interpret what you see using useful 2D and 3D conceptual tools."--Karl has been teaching drawing, painting, and storyboarding for over 40 years and at Disney for 20--as well as Dreamworks, Sony ImageWorks, Nickelodeon, and Warner Bros. Features Animation, among others. He also storyboarded for Disney Television Animation, for DarkWing Duck, Gargoyles, and Aladdin Prince of Thieves. In film, he developed the character expressions and anatomical breakdowns for Stuart in Stuart Little, and character breakdowns in Harry Potter. He worked with Glen Keane to develop a class to help CGI animators working on 'Tangled' to understand the dynamics of movement. He continues at Disney on such films as 'Moana' as an Anatomical Dynamics Consultant.
