About This Class

I designed a challenge for myself: create an introduction to Moho (formerly Anime Studio) that would teach illustration, rigging and animation all in under 3 hours.  During the course, create a human character and provide an animation demonstration.  

Welcome to my introduction to Moho Debut/Pro 12 (formerly Anime Studio).  Moho is a 2D vector illustration, rigging and animation package all in one.  You can use it to create easy to professional 2D animation (e.g. cartoons and promos).

To meet my challenge I had to:

  • Address only the most fundamental and important topics
  • Be extremely organized in my presentation
  • Keep moving!

The core topics addressed include:

Build Solid Bone Structure

  • Understanding Pose, Proportion, Perspective, Joints and Constraints
  • Designing an Optimal Skeletal Structure for Your Character

Illustration

  • Constructing Perfect Knee and Elbow Joints
  • Drawing Your Character Torso
  • Tracing Your Character Head and Face
  • Cartoon Eyes Option Using Layer Masks

Rigging

  • Binding Bones to Your Character
  • Switch Layers and Smart Bone Dials

Animation

  • Walk Cycle
  • Lip Syncing
  • Camera and Background Animation

This course is the first in a series of Moho courses that includes:

Moho Pro Illustration, Rigging and Animation: Introduction
Moho Pro Illustration, Rigging and Animation: Beginners
Moho Pro Illustration, Rigging and Animation: Intermediate
Moho Pro Illustration, Rigging and Animation: Advanced
Moho Pro Illustration, Rigging and Animation: Case Studies

Don't forget the Udemy 30 day no questions asked money back guarantee.  If you're not happy with this course, just return it.  That makes your decision to enroll a no-brainer, doesn't it?

After twenty-five some odd years spent working in the computer industry in the heart of the Silicon Valley, first for Lockheed as a Systems Programmer and later for Cisco Systems as a test tool developer, I managed to retire early and begin my next career as a self-published author.

Along with writing and publishing my own novels I also publish the works of my wife, Melanie Jackson. During the p...
