- Tissa David taught a class in animation for free, open to anyone who wanted to attend. This was sponsored by R.O. Blechman out of his studio, The Ink Tank, from 1991 through 1993.. It was held after hours, so that those who worked in the business could attend.
One of Tissa’s students, the talented animator, Eugene Salandra, kept exceptional notes of the classes. With his permission, I’ve been posting those notes here. Some of those notes seem a bit dated these days. They were done for 2D animation that was shot under a camera. Consequently, many of the layout lessons which appear in the beginning of today’s post might seem irrelevant to computer drawn and scanned artwork. In fact, they are completely relevant, and learning the information will help you understand the proper use of the “camera” even if the camera is a computer.
And, here’s part 4:
I repeat these first two pages.

Still more to come, next Thursday.
