So today I wanted to get back into TVPaint and do some traditional animation. So I decided to grab a snippet of dialogue from one of my favorite actors (Jeff Bridges) in one of my favorite films “The Big Lebowski” – So without further ado I present “The Dude… Sloth”
This is a sneak peek at an upcoming series of animation training videos and lessons that I am working on coming early this year. Enjoy!
UPDATE: My Animation Tutorials are now available.

Aaron, what great news! Thanks so much in advance. Ever since you started posting bits ‘n’ pieces of your animation, I had been hoping you’d do a lesson or two on acting shots like this. Really looking forward to their release :-)
hi, you are so effective in the world by your art. and if you say about your jouney to become an animator in a book it is so perfect for amateur.
This is exciting. Not really any resources out there like this for acting in 2d animation. Looking forward to the full series. Keep up the great work Aaron. Cheers
