About This Class

Welcome in the "Stop motion Your Watercolors - Create Stunning Animations From Your Illustrations"!

In this class we are going to create a simple cutout animation, using a watercolor illustration and the stop motion technique.

Stop motion is the animation technique where you capture every change of the position of a subject (clay, lego dolls, simple objects) and by combining the pictures together, you can create smooth movement. In the cutout technique we are using a puppet created from paper as our subject for animating and in this particular class we are going to level everything up by using our watercolor illustration - and create a puppet from it with moving pieces.

The class is ideal for

-creatives who would love to experiment with new techniques,

- artists who would love to add something new and exciting to their portfolio/social media/website,

- for those who have no clue how animation works.

The only prerequisite for the class is that you need to be able to create a simple illustration - but I am sure you can.

By the end of this class you will:

- learn how animation works (movement, planning, character design)

- understand the process form start to finish

- be able to create a simple storyboard

- be able to create a puppet from your illustration

- be able to create a simple  stop motion animation
