How would you like to be turned into a cartoon character? Perhaps it is your dream to become a princess of a knight in shining armor? For decades, the entertainment industry has made millions of dollars from animation. Children connect with cartoons in kid-friendly programming and the characters have made such an impact on us all that we continue to enjoy their stories for years after we are no longer children.
Cartoons have helped shaped the childhoods of most kids and young adults today. But what many people don’t know is that artists and animators gets their inspiration from real life. Documentaries have often shown animators of “The Lion King” spending their time at zoos and safaris while animating their iconic characters. For any massive movie or television project, there is an immense amount of research done that requires artists to watch real life.
