I’ve been meaning to buy some of the Disney ‘art of’ books for a long time. If I had the money I would by every single Pixar one ever made (along with the one about colour scripts (it’s so pretty)). After seeing Moana I knew I had to buy this book. I loved that movie so much, and the animation was fantastic. You can really see how much the studio has improved with doing water.
The one thing I liked about this book is that it had 2D renderings and concept art. Which is really nice to look at. It gives you an idea of what this movie may have looked like if they did it in a 2d style. Looking at this it makes me sad that Disney have stopped making 2d movies. I have nothing against 3d animation but I prefer the 2d stuff, but that may just be the nostalgia talking.
I haven’t actually read this book. Though I probably should. I really only buy art books for the pictures. But I’m a graphic designer and the pictures are (to me) the important thing anyway.
