• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Animate rw 1684.jpg

A prominent artist and animator who got his start training under veterans from The Golden Age of Animation such as Disneys Nine Old Men, as well as Warner Bros. animator Ken Harris and industry drifter Grim Natwick. Totally crazy about silky smooth, seamless animation.

He has done work several projects, most famously Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, the Raggedy Ann and Andy film, and his tragic attempt to make "the greatest animated film" called The Thief and the Cobbler.

These days, Richard is now semi-retired, at least from the industry side of animation, although he still takes up personal animation projects and teaches animation via his acclaimed masterclasses.

He has also published an acclaimed book on animation, "The Animator's Survival Kit." A 16 DVD set version of it also exists, but costs over $1,000. It also exists as a live class.

No relation to Robin Williams, by the way.

Fulfills the Wiki Rule.
