About This Class

In this class you'll learn how to create a fun and simple Christmas snow globe animation. We will use Adobe Illustrator to illustrate and Adobe Photoshop to animate. I will share my tips on how to make an animation without the need to redraw every frame and will teach you a few easy to follow steps which will take you from no globe to snow globe, in no time. 

This is a class for both professional illustrators who wants to learn how to quick and easy turn drawings into animations as well as for hobbyists who want to create a fun digital Christmas greeting to send to friends and family.

By the end of this class you will be able to create your own snow globe animation which basically means that you can make simple animations from all kinds of drawings.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
