Je trouve cet ouvrage plus intéressant que le livre de Richard Williams - The Animator's Survival Kit, car ce dernier est trop technique à mon goût, tandis que Character Animation Crash Course traite de tout ce que l'on fait de manière inconsciente, ou par réflexe disons (pourquoi animer de cette façon, etc).
L'ouvrage fait environ 200 pages, mais il se lit très bien et est diablement intéressant. Je l'ai dévoré en 2 jours.

This book IS the first and best book to lay out the principles of character movement; antics, overshoots, settles, squash and stretch, break downs, in-betweeing, timing, spacing and all the other basics needed for any classical or CG animator.
I highly recommend this book to all students, teachers and even veterans, because not only does it cover all the fundamentals but it goes beyond into more advanced concepts that ALL types of animators must know and practice, whether it be 3D, traditional paper, or stopmotion animation, this book is definitely worth it.
For many years, Richard Williams' The Animator's Survival Kit has been the gold standard of animation books, and rightfully so. Lucky for us, fellow animation guru Eric Goldberg's "Character Animation Crash Course" isn't just overlap from Williams' work and teaches us different aspects of animation that other books haven't covered.
Goldberg covers aspects of animation far less academically than Williams and rather focuses on things from a character standpoint, how you could apply a technique to a specific character. He also list several classic cartoons (most if not all of which are on DVD) for examples of each particular technique.
He also covers how control the overall shape volume of what's moving, even for flat, graphic characters, and goes in depth on animation "gimmicks" like smear drawings, zip lines, staggers etc... that are often mentioned, but never properly explained.
Probably the most informative part of the book for me was the section on character construction, covering many of the ins and outs of designing an animatable character that I haven't seen in other books.
"Character Animation Crash Course" also has the one big thing "Animator's Survival Kit" doesn't: A CD-ROM of the animations shown that you can watch and frame through to better understand the lessons in the book.
Hopefully someday other master animators will do what Eric Goldberg's done with "Character Animation Crash Course." Write an animation book that has unique outlook on the artform and that imparts some new pearls of knowledge on the subject. Until then, you have to at least add this book to your shelf. Right next to The Animator's Survival Kit of course.
As a comic artist and animator, this book has both inspired me and truly helped me far greater than anything on that shelf. This book will go though "why" a character acts in a certain way, will explain to you what you should know about your character or a character in general, and will both spell it out and show it to you in the included DvD that holds animation files that support the reading. This book is for the animator, comic artist, and even cartoon enthusiasts who want to know more about why characters are the way they are.
So many times I have read a book where it was like "Heres the technique, now run with it" and that doesn't really work unless you know your character...unless you really are your character and this book really expresses that and shows you how to obtain that feeling.
I would have to rate this book a 5/5 even though it deserves much more. Eric Goldberg is an amazing animator who truly understands, lives, and breaths animation. To be able to have this book in my hand and learn from it is a privilege, and I'm very thankful of him for making this wonderful book!
