Who is this course for?

For those who can draw and want to master their skills in basic 2D animation.

About the course

The purpose of the course is to introduce students to animation terms and techniques, teach them to use 12 principles of animation as well as to feel timing and spacing.

During the course you will work on the size of a character, special effects and composition to create professional animation. The focus will be on doing practical tasks that will allow you to acquire all the necessary knowledge.

The course starts with classical exercises for beginners, however, tasks become more challenging after the first month and students can already create dynamic scenes with simple characters.

After the course

You will be ready for complex dynamic battle animations and work on perspective, after you’ve completed the course yas well as studying the next «Mechanics of Movement» course.
