About This Class

678c7b61

In this class we’re going to learn how to create stop motion animations with layer-art, using software we know and love: Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop (you don’t need to be that good). You’ll learn how to transform your static layer-art into animated masterpieces in this 21 minute class.

This short and practical class will ease you into the world of animation, and add a few tools and skills to your arsenal. And at the end you’ll have produced a layer-art piece in stop motion!

Don’t worry if you aren’t familiar with layer-art – enrol in my previous class, Illusions of Depth: Layer-art in Illustrator to get going.
