2D character animation in After Effects using just shape layers.
No rigging and no plugins. Well, a little rigging for the eyes. But no rigging bones or anything like that, JUST SHAPE LAYERS.
This class is great for bners and intermediates. It takes your art skills out of the equation, since we're just using simple shapes, and it focuses on improving your animation skills.
I made about 5 faces in preparation for this class and from face #1 to face #5, the improvement in quality was obvious. This is a great activity and I recommend you do the assignment and post it here so we can talk about it.
Anything that's not clear in the class please comment and ask a question and we can use the comments as a way to update the class, make it more clear.
