Preston Blair (24th October 1908 – 19th April 1995) American character animator. Started his work with Universal Studio then worked for Disney after that in MGM and in the end he worked for Hanna-Barbera.
Mostly known for his work at Walt Disney Productions, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
He’s first book ‘Advanced Animation’ was published in 1948 and is still one of the most important and useful books about animation.

I actually had a chance to look at the newer version of this book. I find it very useful. It’s full of many tips and tricks that help to make animation more believable and alive. It also helps understand many matters of which you may even never think and they are really important(e.g like the way things move in particular situations)

I think that Will Eisner and Bob Kane don’t fit into my vision of the character. The style and the subject of their work is very similar, and it is not exactly what I am comfortable with. The style of Jay Ward is closer to what I am looking for but it’s still not it because his characters are far away from being realistic.The closest to what I want to make is Preston Blair, I really like his designs for the Flintstones. I also really like the way he draw women they are very neat, curvy and a little bit cheeky .
