HEY!! :D


... Seriously, I love animation ... I hope someday I'll be a great, great, great animator.

Well, ehm... uhm ... Hello to everyone! I'm so grateful to be here ;)

Greetings from Texas!

Hey I'm Liz, 21 (turning 22 on Sunday!!) and I'm new here. I am self taught in 2D Animation, still learning... I use Anime Studio Debut 9 and I'm taking classes on Digital Tutors for Maya 2014. Next year, March 2014, my boyfriend, myself and our dogs will be moving to Orlando, FL so that I may attend DAVE School for 3D Animation!


Hi! You can call me Lenny. I am a young aspiring animator who loves drawing and story making. Drawing and making vivid and exciting characters and stories is my passion. I love animals and people alike, and I'm looking forward to making friends and getting to know the artist community. I have many ideas to share and things to do! Thanks for reading!! :D


I am still Alive !

Feels great to be here!

Hey everybody! My name's Chris, and I've wanted to be an animator ever since I was a little kid. I'm currently learning the in's and out's of animation in the program at my university, but I'm taking my summer to get a head start and crank out lots of material to hone my skills.

I know I don't have much say in how my work will be received, but I just wanted everybody to know that I love input. Pretty much everyone who's seen my stuff has either said "Oh, neat," or "Meh, it was okay," but not many people have given me a lot of real feedback. Honestly, even if you tell me my work stinks, I won't mind. Really, I'd rather take negative feedback that's presented in an honest and hopefully friendly way than a hollow "Nice work."

The way I see it, if I applied to Pixar right now there's a pretty good chance they wouldn't hire me. At the same time, I do feel very good about where I'm at right now but would love to know what's keeping me from becoming a truly great animator.

I'm excited to join the discussions on here!

Hello, I am ShadowLillium.

:D I am an art student and although my major is not in animation since most affordable colleges do not have animation courses, I am trying to be self taught and learn from others. It is nice seeing a community devoted to animation and am delighted to learn from and meet you all.


I would love to talk about animation with other artists and share opinions.


AE here hoping to get some footing in the animation world. Great to see such a wonderful resource on the web!

Hello other creative people!

My names Jonny, I'm a freelance animator, concept & storyboard artist. I've only been in full swing of freelancing for half a year so I'm pretty new.

I'm on here in the hopes of learning new things and gaining feedback but also to help get my name out there and get to know other artists.

On a side note I'm looking to see if anyone would like a link exchange to help get our work better seen to the world since that's what most of us want when we share our work. :)

This is long time Disney veterans Chuck Williams and Aaron Blaise. For over 20 years we've been working together on animated classics like "Aladdin," "The Lion King," "Brother Bear," "Beauty and the Beast" and more. Now we're working on our own film, "Art Story."

Hello! Student here!

Hi! I started taking classes at a community college for animation to see if I would be interested in it, well turns out I am and would love to work in this field. I am looking for someone who would be able to give me some guidance. Like degree or certificate? Community college or university? Is there any online degrees that are credible that anyone has taken? Experiences?

Here's my hello and reply!

Hi guys,

I'm new here! Just checking in to say hi.


Hello, I am currently an animation student at the DAVE School and I have always been inspired by animation my entire life. Every time I try to grow up too much and take myself too seriously, animation is always there to bring me back down to earth. Haha. You have to grow old, but you never have to get grouchy while doing it!

I hope to join an interesting community here that will help me learn and grow as an artist. I am particularly interesting in the Daily Sketchbook forum as I know I need to practice my drawing, and this seems like a perfect outlet!


my name is Nathan J.

I have been bouncing around between creating 2D and 3D related art. I haven't been able to make a career of it yet, but I will keep trying to learn.
