Some reviews on "The Art of Moving Points"
"Best book ever on character facial modeling and rigging." Brazil
"I want to say a big thank you to Brian Tindall for this book - even though it kept me up far too late reading it. Brian Tindall is an acknowledged master of his craft in the industry, and it is a rare gift for someone with his experience and talent to share this level of information. Even better, he is not only a talented artist - but also a talented teacher. I'm still in the process of absorbing the wealth of information this book contains. Because this isn't a book filled with fluff and industry anecdotes, but rather is constructed with the same attention to detail that he applies to his craft - each point made is there for a reason, and important. The book is packed with information, and each aspect is further elucidated with excellent diagrams and videos. So I feel this isn't just a book you skim through, but rather one you really need to dig into and immerse yourself. I feel this iBook is a must have for anyone interested in taking their character facial modeling and articulation to the next level. And to my mind, this book goes beyond facial applications - because once you start to understand the core principles I can see applying them to other aspects of the character as well. In summary, I guess the highest praise I can give is that if I didn't already own an iPad I'd gladly purchase one just to be able to read this book." Canada

"Takes some time to download this amount of infromation. I am going to try the method. I am convinced it will work and save me time." Netherlands
"I think that this book should be considered a "must own" for anyone serious about learning how to articulate a 3D character's face. This book goes into extreme details not so much on the tools but on the concepts, or theory, around how to move points in a CG face properly. I can't stress enough how eye opening this resource will be for students of this craft. If you want to create a 3D character and animate it, you NEED this book.Starting to get some reviews in about my iBook." USA
