Reviews

" I have been illustrating Professionally for 15 years. I am self taught, meaning I rely upon books and advice from peers. I've always noticed there was some elusive thin that was usually missing from my figure drawings that made them less dynamic. Burne Hogarth's books were very helpful but they didn't teach me how to get into the Flow. How to them them Go Pow! This book gives you the direction to feel out these forces and shapes. I used to think that these things couldn't be taught. When Mr. Mattesi's lessons click in your brain, you are truly feeling this power. For me, as an animator, it makes all the difference in the world. " Brian Leblanc
