Animation Course

I stumbled into a free animation course with the UK and it's online and it is excellent.


For the first assignments of the week, I made two short animations yesterday using my iPad, some colored pencils and a little notepad.
and a little plastic bear drummer.




I used the APPS iMotion for stop frame animation and iMovie for editing and music on iPad.

The course is with Future Learn
They are FREE courses and what an opportunity to explore and learn.

Getting back to paper

I tried a watercolor yesterday but my ink line was not permanent and the color got muddy. My fault for not checking it out before I put the lines down.
I used Photoshop Express to adjust the color.
My reference for the scene is a photo I took last week which is much nicer than my painting.

I am really rusty. But it was fun to try.
I added 'Find Edges' in Photoshop Elements and I think it greatly improved it. The digital is better than the original.
