    [flap copy]
    A new breed of animation is grabbing headlines. From Toy Story through Shrek to The Incredibles, 3D cartoons are becoming the hottest thing in Hollywood, and they’re also taking over TV. While big-name feature films take years and cost millions to make, amateurs with talent and imagination can take part in this exciting new art form. Using a standard PC and the right 3D software, small studios and independent artists are making their own 3D toons—and here’s the book that shows how you too can join them.
    Its authors—successful professionals with over a decade of experience in the field—reveal the secrets of how 3D characters and sets are brought to life in cartoons, graphic novels, and computer-animated short films. Even if you’re a newcomer, you’ll benefit from their clear, non-technical discussions of body and facial design, texturing, rigging, lighting, and posing. Beautifully illustrated spreads take you from the first steps to the final work. A gallery section showcases new and innovative work from leaders on the independent animation scene, making 3D Toons an eye-opening read for any artist on the cutting edge.
