Art and Animation Level 2

Whether working with human-based characters or fanciful creatures, the animator’s primary job is to convey the characters’ thoughts and emotions through their physical actions. In Art and Animation Level 2, you will learn about the character design and animation processes while exploring modeling and animation techniques using 3D computer animation software. Throughout the workshop, you will learn about traditional art and animation concepts used by successful character animators.

You will learn:

  • Fundamental acting principles
  • Facial animations and movement analysis
  • 3D character definition, modeling, and texturing skills
