Tradigital Animaton Tutorial - Head Movements
This is CartoonSmart's first Flash animation tutorial in so many years, it's embarassing to say. But ironically, the program YOU choose to animate in, isn't crucial to learning from this particular course. Why you ask?...
"Tradigital", if you haven't figured it out already, is an industry word combining "traditional" and "digital". Spoken delightfully by some, scornfully by others, it is a word born because the days of pencil and paper animation at most studios are long gone. That doesn't mean those same frame-by-frame techniques can't live on with our tools du jour. There are still old-timers teaching the young-bloods how to animate the old fashioned way. We couldn't find one of those old-timers to teach this course though, so we've got Conan Sinclair instead!
Conan is a full time freelance animator working on cartoons and game projects in Victoria, Australia. He's prepared an amazing 4-Plus Hour course covering:
Part 1 - Basic Animation Techniques
Part 2 - Head Turn Animation
Part 3 - Getting More Flexibility in Your Animation
Part 4 - Dialogue Animation & Syncing Sound
Part 5 - Cleaning Up and Painting Your Final Animation
