Monthly character animation comp / learning tool , there are no prizes as such in this competition , instead , if you are the monthly winner , your wining peice goes into the gallery of winners .

The group uses yahoo groups as a message board or you can choose to be on the mailing list .

The monthly entrants are voted on by members , most voted for entrant is the winner.

Post your work for crit , crit others works , some big names get about on the board , Rob Starr , Keith Lango , Jason Taylor .

An absolute must if you take your character animation seriously, one of the best communities / groups out there for animators today .

I recommend the 'Digital Character Animation' series of books by George Maestri. Very helpful book and its not program specific either.

A Resources page for an animation class at Ohio State University I just happened upon:

Motion Studies through hand drawn animation - RESOURCES

Includes outside links to sites, some already mentioned here, and hosts copies of some good PDF's I think I've seen elsewhere too, maybe some I haven't...!

A list of just the PDFs:

Animating 4-Legged Animals
Planning for Animation, Glen Keane
The Animation Process, Ollie Johnston
Staging in Animation, Brad Bird
52 Quick Acting Notes, Ed Hooks

Storyboarding the Simpsons Way, Brad Bird

Figure Drawing for all its Worth, Andrew Loomis (24MB)
