Want to get your comics moving--literally? Take this class to learn more about the quickly evolving application of GIFs in webcomics and how you can make one yourself! Step by step, we'll walk through sketching, test runs, finalizing, and uploading.

This class is for people who already have basic knowledge of webcomics and are able to set up a comic on their own. A majority of this class is dedicated to learning basic GIF animation and how to use GIFs within the context of your work.

Let's get started and bring those comics to life!

This made it much clearer to me how to use Photoshop's Timeline, which always puzzled me.
I've loved all her video's thus far and this one is no exception. It's knowledgeable and yet very easy to follow for those who might not be used to creating something ready for the web. I can't wait to try my hand at creating an animated logo now.
