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 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?

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.
