Over time I've been trying to teach myself at least the basics of making them, while I'm still getting generals in college finished. For the most part recently i've been working on figuring out how different body parts move in different situations and in different species. So from now on I'll try to update as many times as possible with little projects i've worked on over the years. They are all rather sketchy and not particularly even close to actually being animations, but maybe in the near future I'll be able to make a full scale animation with backgrounds and all. Albeit I did take two beginner 2D animation courses in high school that were basically just used to learn how to make animation using very simple movements, as in opening and closing a hand, zooming in and out on an object, and making a ball bounce. If anyone could give me some tips as in what programs are best or how to render them easily or really anything pertaining to making animation, it would be highly appreciated.
Right now I'm actually working on a random project that has to do with a cheetah and a rat being mixed as a species to become my new avatar and all. Still working on learning the movements of a cheetah however. I'm almost half done with it already.
