Cartoon Animation by Preston Blair and The Animation Wookbook by Tony White
are the best tutorials. If you want something that has a lot more of the
philosophy behind the drawing, then go with The Illusion of Life by Frank
Thomas and Ollie Johnson. They were two of Walt Disney's '9 Old Men' who
drew the bulk of the films the studio produced from the 30s to the 70s.
