Yeah, I'm very interested. Let me in \(>o<)/ We could use any kind of software, right? I'm using Flash to make all my art and animation (I want to use some other more advanced software, but my old notebook is simply... too old).

I'm interested. I'm going to school for animation, but it's taking forever for me to reach the actual animation related classes. xD

Awesome guys. I didn't think there would be so many people that would be willing to join so soon. 8D

You can use any program in this journey of learning. I most likely do some hand drawn animations and some digital animation. I probably won't hit points as well as an animation school, but I can hit most of the ones that I have learned from across the board. Expect to see some stuff that you will want to learn more about on your own. Feel free to give me some ideas of what you guys want to learn.

Right now, I have difficulty drawing hair/cloth blown by winds. This kind of animation is over-used since lots of intro and ending/credit features that one. Perhaps it's rather easy to make it, but to make a nice one is really hard.

Alright. I'll try to cover that. I'm working on getting the examples finished for the first class, so expect it to be ready this week and have it run into next week.

Let me in too!

I always wanted to see someone teach, instead of being forced to attempt learning on my own. This might be the way to force myself out of block :D

Unfortunately I have access only to freeware software. Is it gonna hamper the progress in any way?

Can't wait for the classes to start, Jai! C:

@ Sekator

I don't think it'll be a problem. I think jaidurn is going to start with good 'ol fashioned pen and paper animation. I guess we'll see later this week when he posts up the first tutorial. C:

I'm working on a rough story board tutorial for you guys. I'm gonna have a normal lesson with challenges, so be prepared.

Woah rad. New people to the max. I am so happy you are all willing to join. I'll be posting the tutorial today when I get home from school :3 I hope you are all ready!

Enlist me as a student! I have a program called Pencil for animating if that makes anything different.

Oh yeah, in case anyone wants a FREE software to make animation (animation only, no coloring or other features like Flash), you could try downloading "Plastic Animation". It was a $700 software but now made free by the developer, so no harm to try it (only 5 MB big). Oh, and it's not a resource hog either, since my Pentium 4 2.6 GHz with 512 MB RAM and no dedicated video card could run it easily.

Since I get this information from our fellow MT user, I'll give you the link to his thread -> http://www.mangatutorials.com/forum/showthread.php?206-Plastic-Animation-Paper-Free-animation-program

yeah.... I kinda wanted to ask what type of animation will we be dealing with here? Paper? 3D? 2D? digital? D:

jaidurn
04-02-2011, 02:06 PM
In these classes we shall deal with 2D Digital and 2D Traditional. I hope to get my laptop fixed so I can get the tutorial up on Sunday. For now we shall have an introduce yourself thread.

I'm joining too. I am hopelessly behind on animation :l Maybe if I do this I can learn some pixel art too.

Rio

Oooo - I love pixel art. I just came across a really cool pixel tutorial a couple of days ago: Kawaii Hannah Pipxel Tutorials (http://www.kawaiihannah.com/pixelart/view/pixeltutorials/). Check it out!

Hi there! I have been doing animation for about.. hrm.. 3 years now? I believe I have gotten quite good at it. (I use Easy Toons and Pivot.) I would like to have help in taking it abit further though. So I would like to join as a student. Also: IF Jaidurn deems me good enough, I would be more than happy to do some lessons as well.

Sorry that I haven't been on, I got really sick, and got swamped with work.

Glad to hear you're better! What's the next step, sensei?

I'll be writing up some walking and running animation tutorials. :)
