Recently we completed a major update of the legendary animation course by General-Animation Studio. We have new characters, new lecturer and new themes for cartoons. In our tutorials, the learning process itself is presented as an exciting cartoon! Just imagine: funny cartoon characters will tell you how to make cartoons! Now in our video tutorials there are even more adorable cartoon characters, even more interesting examples and exciting practical assignments. We have added a lot of new modern material, but at the same time maintained the atmosphere and charm of our first video tutorials. Therefore, we hope that our course will be useful not only for those who are taking their first steps into motion graphics, but also for more experienced animators: not so often in the basic course you are shown a technique for creating models with automatic animation, which will allow you to create cartoons quickly and without excessive effort.

My dear students! Are you ready for the new school season? I hope you had a good rest from your studies, because we have a lot of interesting things to do. This academic year, we will be assisted in our training by our new animated series based on African mythology. It already starts to take shape. In new episode, our protagonist Bakaridjan Kone is performing his first small feat - helping an old man in a difficult life situation. As you can see we have two new wonderful characters - the old man himself, and his charming wildebeest cow. These two characters will appear in our cartoons more than once and will help us in our training. Moreover, the year of the Ox/cow is approaching, and our glamorous wildebeest cow has every chance to become a symbol of the year.
I think you recognized the dancing girls that Olga Nuzhnykh made for us. And at the end, the courageous king of this African kingdom appears, and his wise advisor and personal magician - Marikei. They will be the main characters in the next episode of our cartoon. I will show you in every detail how to work with these cute characters. Join our courses on Udemy and we will study animation and make cartoons together!
Hello dear students - old and new. Yes! In recent weeks, the number of participants in our Udemy course “Basic Animation in Adobe After Effects” has increased by literally thousands of new students! I don’t even know what caused this - coronavirus pandemic quarantine or launch of our new animation project. Most likely both of these factors played a role. As you know, my dear friends, we are not just learning animation - at the same time we are making cartoons. Now we are working on a cartoon about the adventures of the hero of the African epic - Bakaridjan Kone. This will be the subject of our next training assignment. We have already made dancing animals - chickens, monkeys, hamsters and even cows, and now it's time to animate the dancing girls. This will be the scene for our cartoon - our hero Bakaridjan Kone sets off in search of adventure, and hot African girls dance for him to wish him good luck on this dangerous path.
Especially for this assignment, I created a new section in our Udemy Course “Basic Animation in Adobe After Effects”: Section 3 – Dancing Girls Practical Assignment. Check out this section, read the instructions, download downloadable resources with our charming dancers and let's dance! Here are the hot dancing girls models of which we will find in the downloads of our course, along with detailed instructions on how to make them dance. Actually all our course is such an instruction.

The best way to study animation is practice! With General-Animation studio you have a unique opportunity to combine training with practical activities!
The first scene of our new grandiose crowd sourcing project is finally ready! This will be an animated series based on African mythology, in which the past and present, myths and reality intertwined in the most bizarre way. The working title of the project is Bakarijan Kone. This is the hero of the African epic - brave, good-natured, maybe a little rustic, but still very nice guy. In first scene he wakes up on a wonderful spring morning in a small African village on his birthday, and suddenly it turns out that it was on this very day that fate had destined him to go on a long journey, in search of adventure, wealth and glory! The main purpose of General-Animation studio has always been the search, inspiration and support of beginning talented animators.
So now we will continue to make cartoon using outsourcing. We will publish the script of the fragment, find the person to animate this fragment, discuss the price, and then the person makes the animation of this fragment and receives money for his work. Thanks to our sponsors, we managed to raise some budget in order to financially support and encourage our animators. Of course, this is not a big money, but this is a unique opportunity for everyone who wants to try himself as an animator. You can also take part in our project if you know how to make animation or you have a desire to learn. Visit our site General-Animation.com to follow the news, subscribe to our group on facebook, watch our fascinating video tutorials on animation, learn animation with us and we will make cartoons together!
