Lynda – 2D Animation: Tips and Tricks

Lynda - 2D Animation: Tips and Tricks

Course Trailer

One way to learn animation is an all-in-one course, the kind you can find here in our library. The other path is on-the-job training, and involves picking up an arsenal of tips and tricks as you work. Both methods have their benefits, though most students get an all-in-one style education. This course will give you that “on the job” experience in weekly doses. Every Tuesday, author Dermot O’ Connor reveals a tip or trick that animation professionals use to save time and create more compelling characters. Learn to use delays, overshoots, and leading gestures to create looser, more realistic movement; draw different mouth shapes for male and female characters; create different styles of walks such as staggers; and more. Put this course in your playlist and each week a new video will appear in your queue.
