Hey kids! The first of the new monthly free web tutorials is online and available. This month's topic, as noted before, is the Moving Hold. Hopefully this one is useful to folks.
While I'm here, I feel like I need to kinda explain the krunky animation quality for these tutorials. I admit the stuff is kinda... um... rough around the egdes. That's on purpose, really. If I took the time to noodle these things out to the max I'd never get them done. The point is to illustrate a singular principle or example in motion, not to wow you with my mad ninja skillz as an animation polisher. I've been in training sessions with world renowned traditional animators who can draw like nobody's business. I mean like crazy great draughtsmen. But the funny thing is that their drawings on the whiteboard when teaching are usually horrible! Heheh. That's because they're not trying to prove anything. They're trying to teach. So in that same vein my "animation sketches" in these tutorials will be just that- sketches to get a point across.
At any rate, enough of me covering my butt. Go download the tutorial and enjoy mocking my slop-imation. Heh.
