About This Class

Would you like to animate your cartoons and illustrations easily and with a flick book feel? This is the class for you.

In this class I'll teach you how to create a frame animation on Photoshop using an illustrated character, I will tell you how to animate the facial features and the text to create a really charming flick book feel.

I'll also introduce you to some of the best brushes on the market available online that add amazingly realistic watercolour effects on Photoshop!

Then you will be able to send them to your friends via iMessage or post on Twitter

Some prior experience of Photoshop is very useful here

I loved this class and can't wait to make an animated gif like this.. and the presentation by Sophia was excellent too. Thanks for a great class!
Had great fun doing this, came wait to have another go! Thank you!
I used this class as a quick refresher on creating animated gifs and it was great. I even learnt a new technique along the way :)
