Hippo Dance!!

Well due to my busy workshop and speaking schedule lately this has been a while coming but, I am glad to report that my “Hippo Funk” Animation is now complete. This was great fun to put together and work on over the past few weeks.

I’m going to be breaking this animation down for an upcoming “How to Animate to Music” video lesson. Also, this hippo guy will be return in my Character Design Course that I’ll be releasing soon.

I also have plans to release this animation for other uses so that artists and musicians can set it to their own music… But more on that soon. In the meantime, ENJOY!

  1. Hi Aaron,
    I am one of your animation students and was wondering if you have a collection of “all” of your Photoshop brushes and not sure what version you use. Do they work with CC2015?

    1. Hi, my name is Nick and I work with Aaron on his website. We don’t YET have a bundle of ALL the brushes but we will soon.

  2. Hi Aaron,

    I just wanted to thank you for your incredible generosity and good heart. I am too poor to afford your courses and brushes, etc., but am studying all the free information you have on your website. It is INCREDIBLE! Again, thank you sooo much for putting all the free information, it makes all the difference to someone like me!

  3. Aaron, you have renewed my confidence in believing that I too could one day become a great artist. I know that it takes practice to hone one’s craft, you make art “Fun” for me again! Thank you so much. I’m enjoying the annual membership!
