About This Class

Learn how to get started creating animations by hand using the free Animatic app for iOS and Android devices in this free class.

I'll get you up and running with Animatic and walk you through my entire process for animating by hand. We'll even touch on some basic animation practices like timing, spacing and squash & stretch. By the end of the class you'll have your very own hand-drawn animation!

Animating by hand is a lot of fun, but it can also be great practice for any type of animator. Forcing yourself to think about things that computer programs do for you automatically can greatly improve your eye for high-quality motion.

Great for complete beginners like me. Especially since the prgramm is available for tablets and smartphones and doesn't require me to own a drawing tablet to look decent.
Quite easy to follow even without any background in animation or graphics. I really enjoyed making my own animations.
so much fun! I'd never done any animation nor had I heard of this app...thank you Jake!
