Class101 – Transform Still Images into Moving Stories with the ”Beats to RelaxStudy to” Animator
Info: I am a professional illustrator and artist working at an animation studio and have been behind several projects you’ve probably heard of or even seen, but maybe didn’t realize it was my work. One of the things I’m known for is creating the original animations for ChillledCow’s lofi hip hop radio, the most popular live stream on Youtube. Now tons of artists do fun projects like this and can even make a living doing commission work in this style I helped spread. In this course, I’m going to reveal my entire process and walk you through creating your own character design, story, and animation from start to finish which you can take and upload to Youtube, add to your portfolio, or simply enjoy knowing that you made it yourself. By the end of the class, you will be better at drawing and come to understand the basic principles of storytelling that I use across my work as a professional character designer and animator. For a lot of striving artists, animation and creating moving images might be something you’ve always thought about getting better at but is difficult to do on your own. I will break down the process of making an animated visual into simple, easy to follow activities that can be understood by absolute beginners or established artists. First we will go through a warmup exercise to become better-acquainted with the main tool, Photoshop, which will be the foundation for what you will learn and the activities we complete together throughout the course.
