Animation Tutorials

"I am excited to show you how to bring a brain and soul into your characters so people immediately see that in your drawings. But besides great drawing technique, your characters need heart to be truly memorable.”

“I'll show you how to make that happen with the simplest of pencil lines, the simplest of space and layout. Animation is not just a mechanical process that strings drawings together, it's bringing out from within yourself all the verve and energy of your being and putting that power into your characters. Stick with me and we'll develop that together.”

These tutorials will kick your imagination into high gear. Do you want to get so creatively pumped that you can easily land a job, and not so easily get laid off? These tutorials are designed to bring you to “Master of the Art” level and be well paid for it. We'll make it fun; you'll make it pay!

The answer lies in shootin…

This lesson will highlight the contribution of Edward Muybridge to the art of cinema and animation therefore giving the student a broader understanding of frames per second and timing. All motion pictures give you an illusion of life by showing you a series of still photographs at the rate of 24 per second. That principle is basic to the understanding of learning to animate.

If you are lucky enough to find an experienced animator that will share his/her secrets with you as you watch him/her draw, then the only question left to ask is, will you be teachable?
