Since this group has been a little more lively with submissions lately, I figured I'd join in on the fun.

This is a quick 30 second clip from a new project I am working on. I've posted another clip from this one before. It's a longer project that probably won't be released for a while.

Anyway, here's the clip!

Thanks for the add! Your tutorial videos helped me learn a LOT about animation. I knew nothing before I started and im about to put up my first animation. I have a comedy series I wrote years ago and continue to write and nobody else was getting my vision with their animation. Thanks for all the awesome tutorials. I hope to have part one of my first episode up next week :)

My cartoons are usually more adult themed as well. Don't worry about that. We welcome all sorts of demented minds here.

Tuxedo Cat Cartoons

It's a rainy and windy weekend here on the east coast...thanks to Hurricane Matthew. Anybody working on any cool projects...or uncool projects, for that matter? Here's one that I started to work on a while back but I had to stash it away in the vault for a little while. Going to resume work on it soon...so hopefully it'll see the light of day in the next month or two. It's a short about an elegant cat that doesn't like his steak overcooked.

I really like the art style on this. I hope you are able to find time to work on it again.

It's cold and rainy here too but I'm far away on the west coast. I hope you and your family and friends are staying safe!

As for me, I'm working on a new Moho course... I may post something from that here soon.

chad, I currently own Anime Studio 11 pro, and was wondering about purchasing your book on anime studio. My question is the book still up to date enough for the software changes since it was published?

+Michael Clay Thanks! And yes, I have learned it's best to start with the basics and then build your comps up from there.

Chad,

If I use Papagayo lip sync for my mouths, I was wondering if you had to use the mouths that the program uses on your characters, or if your created switch layer mouth positions would be incorporated after you import the file.

Thanks in advance.

I agree with Mr Cat. I think it goes for all aspects of animation: the more time you put into it (in this case, drawing mouth poses and implementing manual syncing), the more happy you will be with the end result.

Chad,

Quick question. If I create a layered character in a paint program, and bring him as an image file into Moho, can I create vector layers for other body parts for example various hand shapes and mouth movements? In other words can I combine image and vector layers at the same time?

Thanks.

Over the past three weeks I have been animating and recording a new course on how to use Moho Pro with a few Adobe Cloud apps (Sketch, Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere).

I go over both image and vector based character rigging, among a few other things. If you're new to Moho or animation, I'm hoping this will be a good experience for you.

This is the animation (more or less) that will be taught through the course. Once the course is available, I can share the link if anyone is interested.

I've dealt with this type of thing before. The worst ones are where they disguise a compliment just to follow up with a request for you to do something for free. That compliment becomes meaningless to me.

I write and animate because it's the torture I'm most comfortable with. And it has to be personal, or worth something (money). Creating something for someone you have no attachment to will always yield mediocre results. Those empty jobs are the most mentally taxing work you can do. Any creative type reading this will know what I mean I'm sure.

At least that's my view. Also, the artist in this article handled the situation professionally, which is all you can do.
The irony of calling her entitled for not doing free work is lost on him.

well this clearly is a scam, and like you said the artist handled it quite well. There is always someone trying to get something for nothing. When exposed, the person showed their true colors.

As far as I'm concerned my drawings and animations are clearly personal. I do them because I enjoy them. If someone else likes them that's great. If they amount to something on a professional level, that's great too. I do what I like. I think you never try to please anyone, or create something that you think someone else would like.

I'm in agreement with you.

Even with the small scale work I do, I can relate to what is being talked about here. I'm sure many of my animator friends will too. As freelance animators, we most of the time have to act as one man shows. And a lot of self scrutiny follows that process.
Their way of writing is what makes the show work so well. Forget the subject matter or vulgarity, it's the spontaneity of the writing that helps bring the extra punch.

Very interesting. And I agree. There is such a thing as natural talent. But if you don't nurture that talent or try to push yourself in new ways, you will never grow or learn. It's good to find new challenges to sharpen your skills.

I created a multi layered character in photoshop and saved it as a PSD file. I then opened Moho and imported it as an image file. The character appeared as well as the layers in Moho. The program did not create a bone layer automatically. Can anyone help me with this?
