2d Animation and Design

Checkout this video and throw me comments. Happy to release my animated video i’ve been working on. You readers have an more interesting and active stuff here. I’m still developing the character to introduce in my upcoming website. I will be posting further videos and with new animated backgrounds . Do check often and have fun. Happy animating!


The poses study is more helpful in getting accurate results in action , rather than the cartoon character doing something in the movie. Usually artists hold a scrap book to gather ideas from live study, i.e real life study.

Poses study

Poses study

After designing the cartoon character, we are always eager to make it act. But the problem comes when we actually try to animate in the way we have in mind. We might not be well aware of the action skills of the character. It is always a good practice to study the actual key pose before doing the animation.

Happy animating!

After lots of scribbling and rough sketch,  the character on mind is drawn on paper. Yet its only a starting point in animation. The character drawing has to be fine tuned again and again using lightbox and traced for final version.

The final version contains the outlines cleaned up and presented as thick and thin lines so to add more beauty and depth to the character.

From here the life of the character is turned on and his / her new world is opened from paper to digital media.

Ya drawing for animation is not easy and it will not come in a day or two.

But if u learn to scribble on paper, now that’s easy.  So start scribbling something.

I have been doing 2d animations, especially character animation in flash. I use traditional style in drawing and making animatics. The character or the background is studied fully by drawing various poses and the style is developed. The character is then scanned and traced using vector based program Adobe illustrator, fine tuning is done then and there in flash software.

I am posting my works here in my blog and it would be easy for u guys to share and comment your ideas.

I am trying to share some reference and inspirational websites and materials.
