Toon Boom Animation Inc. has released the Toon Boom Animation Workout Series. Touching on all aspects of animation creation, the Toon Boom Animation Workout Series is a dedicated program of exercises designed to help users develop the techniques and skills necessary to get the most out of the Toon Boom product family.
Each title of the Workout Series lays out the objectives, provides users with the necessary tools and materials as it guides them through each exercise, while allowing them plenty of freedom to experiment and add their own personal touch to the final result. As a bonus, each animator involved in the series provides some useful Animators Tips.
The first Animating Workout title is split into two components. The first one shows, step by step, how to use the drawing tools, as well as animating. The second shows how to add elements and create a movie. The Animating Workout sells for $24.99 and is available at the Toon Boom online store.
The next title is in the works and will teach the fundamentals of cutout-style animation, showing, step by step, how to go from a rough sketch to a fully painted character, ready for cutout animation. Check out all the eLearning tools Toon Boom offers online at www.toonboom.com/products/eLearning/.
