2D animation using AfterEffects


Its been months since I’ve updated my blog, it has been quite frustrating, been busy with work and, had a huge catastrophe with my HDD which got fu*ked up.. ended up losing all my data , well iv kinda recreated most of the stuff again, and I promise to start updating the blog for you.

To start I have been going through a phase trying to learn 2D animation using after effects, not going all that well as I don’t know anything of character animation, rigging or creating the character. BUT!! As iv been searching through the world wide web iv come across a number of amazing tutorials and plugins, which I have kindly put together for you to go through.
