   As you may know, just recently in our course «Basic Animation in Adobe After Effects» appeared a new section «Creating your own models for animation». And now I added to this section a new lecture, in which I tell in detail how to create in the Adobe Photoshop program your own models for animation in After Effects. So now you can create your own characters to make with them cartoons.
   We will be glad to see you in our free Udemy course «Basic Animation in Adobe After Effects». Link to the course https://www.udemy.com/basic-animation-in-adobe-after-effects/learn/v4/overview

   I have long wanted that in the Udemy courses there were some means to give small practical tasks to students and then monitor their implementation. And at last such means have appeared! Udemy introduced Assignments! Now we will test this great feature. Moreover, actually we already have wonderful first assignment. In the tenth lecture of our course which is called «Your practice project» I gave you a whole collection of funny cartoon animals and offered to teach them to dance. This exactly will be our first assignment! Find in the internet beautiful background picture and make a merry concert with happily dancing animals.
   It is our first animation quest. Upload your cartoon to Facebook or Youtube and send us a link to the video so that other students also can  see your work and leave a comment.  And then we will assemble of your numbers a big concert program.

  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 DownloadsChiken AABB Small archive in wich I gathered footages Hen Cock Thumbnailneeded 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.

 Are you ready for the New Year? I think we absolutely must make a New Year concert. With songs, jokes and dancing chickens. I have already done something. Please visit my class on Skillshare “Animation in After Effects - Musical project” where you can download the model chickens and rooster. So you too can take part. Let's have a contest for the best dancing chicken. http://skl.sh/1XW2FGW

  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.
