Beginner Animation Course – Procreate


We all grew up watching cartoons and drawing. The natural outlet is to want to make our own animations, right?

Of course it is!

Believe it or not, it used to be a costly and difficult process— revolving around traditional drawing materials, many reams of hole-punched paper, and expensive compositing equipment.

Nowadays, you can draw out your own animations from the comfort of your couch, and this course will give you the quick start you need to get creating.

This is a 7-week course showcasing how simple to complex animations can be created using Procreate for iPad. The principles of animation therein apply in spite of the program.

It is still recommended to use procreate for the greatest ease of following this course. If you know the basics of Blender, Clip Studio Paint, Flash, Krita, or Photoshop, you can animate along in any of those programs as well.

A: Yes. a simple PDF file outlining what to do after watching the lesson.

Q: Do I need an iPad, Apple Pencil, and Magic Keyboard?

Q: Is this course okay for TOTAL Beginners?

A: Yes. Even if you can only start off drawing a stick person. It’s about principles of motion and animation more so than drawing. If you want to learn to draw better, check out the other courses.
