    Although I have learned animation in art school here in Europe and trough other on-line sites, this animation course is the best choice for beginners, students and already working animators as well. For students, everything is explained and presented in a very obvious and easy-to-understand way. For already working junior animators, it is a great possibility to see the approach of a real professional like Aaron Blaise. It covers the entire spectrum of animation. Beyond the fundamentals, it includes a full demonstration of the animation process, from thumbnails to the finished animation itself. Very rare to find something like this today on the net, a real deal compared to the amount of knowledge incorporated into the tutorials.
    A huge thank you for Mr. Blaise! Long live Brother Bear!!! :)

    I was a bit reluctant to purchase unsure if the videos were going to be worth my last bit of cash…but I am extremely glad I did!

    The ability to pause and go back anywhere in the videos is extremely helpful and the video quality makes it easy to follow along.
    Mr.Blaise uses TVPaint for the lessons but I am using old fashioned pencil and paper and am able to follow without any difficulties. He is straightforward and anyone should be able to follow along even if they have no previous animation experience.

    I have already seen a vast improvement in my animation and understanding of the process. I really wish there were more artists selling lessons like this. The price is pennies compared to the knowledge contained within.

    Thank you, Mr.Blaise for these comprehensive lessons! I will be back for more.

    This is an absolute treasure! I am a beginner and the way Aaron breaks down the fundamentals is very clear and easy to understand. I was skeptical to buy this at first because I had very little money left, but oh man! It was such an awesome investment. I’m very grateful to you for sharing your knowledge with us all. Thank you so much!!!

    This was the first course I purchased. Now, I’m hooked. I really appreciate his teaching style. Learning the 12 principles in 2D has actually helped my 3d animation greatly

    Absolutely incredible course! Aaron is an incredible teacher and extremely relatable. These courses are great for anyone who wants to learn animation or improve their skills. The videos in this lesson pack are extremely well done and the way he explains the principles and practices make it so incredibly easy to understand. The value of these lessons are even more astounding! With Aaron’s expertise, experience and education, you will learn more in these short videos for a much more agreeable price than you would paying for a university or other online program. Great for anyone who is interested in learning the craft and art of animation. Highly, highly recommend!
