  1. This is the king of tutorial/training/online school that you need to do in your site:

    Animation Bundle or Online school:
    1-how to design human characters (disney style like this kid)
    2-create, design expression sheets, poses, etc
    3-planning, storyboard, drawing frames, paint and animate in tvpaint
    one animated scene from it. (any digital software + wacom)
    4-tips and tricks on building shots, scenes, planning + thumbnails etc.
    5-how to draw and animate animals (like your videos)

    Because nobody is doing that, (is there is somebody I want to know :)
    you are a classical animator! I just grew up watching your lines in all disney movies, this style is dying and I don’t know if you know how many people want to learn this.

    ***maybe can be and online school, (you can use Adobe Connect) to do the classroom live. classes 2 times per week, first day the class, second day homework review. payment monthly…up to 8 students per session…..from zero to hero….from basics of drawing to digital classical animators…and maybe cut out animation too, with toon boom animate (you can find another person to teach this :)

    there is NOT an “” for 2D animation!
    a lot of artist are doing 2d painting tutorials for free/paid online, but no one is doing animation 2d.

    I will be the first one to sign!! and after you can build a team of freelance from the same students…….. that can help you in any 2d animation project in the future like the movie that you are working on………… :) always you can see the big picture…….
    **and of couse affordable prices too………

    I am doing a 2 years 3D animation online training using maya…….because nobody is doing it for 2d animation………………
