About This Class

We will explore ways to most effectively prepare characters for animation.  Specifically characters with strokes.  Well prepared character artwork and a great rig can quickly add quality to your animations by minimizing the number of keyframes required to create motion.  The better the rig, the fewer the keyframes.  The fewer the keyframes, the happier the animator.  And the happier the animator, the better the animation.
