I think you all noticed a nice little hamster that appeared recently in our cartoons. This cheerful character was created thanks to the efforts of the participant of our project Marina Kon. Today I place this hamster in “Downloads” section of our site so that you too can create cartoons with this character. After downloading the archive, you will find in it a PSD file with a hamster cut into parts, as well as several AE projects in which the hamster is already assembled into the model and used in animation. Notice the project “Hamster Animette.aep” In this project a model with pre-programmed animation is assembled. Open the composition "00 hamster Animette". The very first layer of this composition is called “Homa Control” and it has a “GO” slider. With this slider, a walking animation is turned ON an OFF. When GO is 0 the hamster is standing still. Set the GO value to 1 and the hamster will run happily along the track. Also included in the project is animation of speech.
We continue to develop the theme “Five little chickens jumping on a bed”. I will try to demonstrate how you can use this lovely children's song to cover the most burning problems of our time. I hope that with your help we will be able to raise the art of political satire to new heights. And so, on our scene appear Mr. Putin and his “polite green men”. And in the next episode we will meet Mr. Trump. and will be able to create cartoons about serious international collisions.
Study Adobe After Effects with us and you too can create your own cartoons! All footage and models for animation you will find in our lessons.
I'm happy to tell you that our funny video lessons on animation dedicated to the Year of the Rooster have turned into a whole new interesting animation project - we'll call it Chicken Adventure Time. In this project we will use all our footage with chickens to make an interesting cartoon about the adventures of the chicken family. In this cartoon there will be many funny little animals, a lot of interesting stories on the most pressing topics of our time, and of course there will be Trump and Putin and many other glamorous characters.
All this and much more you will find in our free Udemy Course "Basic Animation in Adobe After Effects".
I always liked to make satirical cartoons on political topics with my students. This very well stimulates students to create their own animation. But making satirical cartoons about Putin in Russia is becoming an increasingly risky occupation. Besides, Trump seems to me a much more promising character in terms of political satire. So I decided to switch to Trump in my lessons. Well, Putin, too, will be somewhere on the background. Sweet couple.
If we are going to make satirical cartoons about the most urgent problems of our time, we certainly cannot do without leaders of world powers. We already have Putin. Today I made Trumps model. How do you like my Trump? Is not he a cutie? Who wants to voice Trump?
Subscribe to our free Udemy course "Basic Animation in Adobe After Effects" and we will do cartoons together! You can find model of Trump in downloads of my course.

I started a new series of video lessons, in which will be even more funny cartoons, more music and dances. We are going to study animation in After Effects, and at the same time create our own cartoon show! You all can be participants of our show – created by you training animated clips we’ll include in our final cartoon ballet. And as we start our project in the beginind of the year a rooster, I decided to name it a Chicken Lake, with some claim on classic. And so, we offer you the first lesson from our new series of video lessons on animation in Adobe After Effects: Chicken Lake Ballet - First Act. In this lesson we will take a look at the program interface and teach a chicken to perform the simplest movements.
Added to Downloads archive in wich I gathered footages needed to make a merry Christmas scene with dancing chickens. Here you will find Photoshop models of chickens and a rooster, and a New Year bakgraund and music. In addition, you will find in the archive AE projects of already fully assembled and ready for animamation models of chickens and rooster.

In this new series of video tutorials I want to try “gaming technique” training – to transform study into an exciting game. It is simply amazing how many dedicated and talented people gathered at Skillshare - I propose to use these talents to create our own Skillshare Animation Studio. Let us all together make cartoons about what we're doing on Skillshare and how wonderful it is - to live each day learning something new.
Animation studio is good because everyone here can find application to his talent. If you are author and write stories, you can write scripts and dialogues for our cartoons. Artists can create characters for animation and scenery. Actors - to engage in voicing of characters, musicians - create musical accompaniment. And of course we’ll need animators, to breathe life into our characters.
To animate, in my opinion, may everybody. To teach everyone this absolutely necessary skill, we have created a series of exciting and easy to understand lessons on animation in the Adobe After Effects program, which will allow you to quickly and easily master the basic skills necessary to make animation, and begin to animate. We invite everybody to participate in the work of our animation studio - here everyone will find something occupation to his taste. Write to us at community section and offer your ideas, sign up for our classes, create your projects and let's make cartoons!
All our video tutorials you will find in the "Video Lessons" section of the main menu.
Recently I discovered SkillShare.com - a site dedicated to online training. On this site gathered thousands of passionate people for whom daily acquiring of new knowledge and skills is a vital necessity. They watch video tutorials, do themselves their own video tutorials and every day learn something new. But this is exactly our passion too! Our motto is - Not a day without new knowledge! So I decided to create my own class on SkillShare. Especially since we already have excellent tutorials on creating animation in Adobe After Effects with Eric Cartman as a guest star. So I created my own class and even got some students. Here is the link to my class on SkillShare. And now I started a new series of video lessons with new characters and a more advanced level. So anyone interested - join. We’ll make video lessons and cartoons together and may even earn some money. Here is the first lessons of my new series on creating animation in Adobe After Effects.
