Ever wondered how to create animation and bring your characters to life? Even in this age of CGI (that’s Computer Generated Imagery, folks!), it seems we still can’t get enough of traditional 2D animation. So, if you’ve ever wanted to make a cartoon or just want to try something different with your drawings, this video course from Ryan Slater has everything you need to create your first 2D animation in just over two hours! And the best part? All you need to do this are some pencils and paper.
So why do so many people still love traditional 2D animation so much? Well, there are all kinds of reasons, but we think the charm of a hand-drawn animation takes some beating. And there’s just something magical about creating a character, and then seeing them ‘move’ as you flip through the pages of your sketch pad!
This video course will take you all the way from creating your animation concept and character to putting the finishing touches to your first 2D animation sequence. Along the way, you’ll learn all the tricks of the trade and get some fascinating insights into this much-loved area of art and popular culture. After all, where would we be without characters like The Flintstones, Top Cat, and all your favorite Disney characters?
The other very cool thing about this course is that it will also help improve your drawing skills pretty rapidly. How come? Because learning animation teaches you how to break things down into simple shapes and visualize your 2D characters as 3D forms. For example, if you’re going to have your characters walking, running, jumping, and turning around etc, you’ll need to know how to draw them from any angle. This course shows you exactly how to do that, and a lot more besides.
