Description

The key to making great animations is understanding the 12 core principles of animation. In this course we use the animation assist features in Procreate to learn the basics of animation and apply them to our work in a practical way. We start simple by moving simple shapes and slowly build on those basics with each project. You will be stunned by what you will be able to create by the end of this course.

Who this course is for:
  • Beginners who want to learn animation
