About This Class

In this incredibly fun class, you'll join me, Isaac Ramos, as together we learn how to animate a character walk, run, and jump!  It's great to know how to draw, but to see your creations come to life is a whole different ball game!  Using a program called "Krita" (free), we will learn how to create hand-drawn, frame-by-frame animation, just like you remember from the good ol' 2D Disney days!  You could create the next Simba, Genie, or Mushu!  Come and jump in on this awesome course and we'll get you animating in no time!

If you want to learn the basics, go to my foundations class!
