Join Illustrator Isaac Holk and Motion Graphics Artist Dusty Gridley on https://www.behance.net/live as they use Character Animator to teach us a fun and fast approach to 2D animation. This week they will focus on basic illustration and animation tips by demonstrating a new workflow in Character Animator. Stick around for part 3 to gain insights into the animation industry and learn how Character Animator transformed Zookeeper.

Isaac and Dusty both work as designers and motion graphics artists at Zookeeper. Zookeeper is an animation studio founded by Dave Waite that focuses on well crafted stories and clever animations to compel brand experiences and grow audiences. They specialize in short-form, ‘snackable,’ animations with a focus on branding.

Character Animator uses facial performance capture to give users a fresh, fun, and fast approach to 2D animation. The latest release offers faster workflows and animation refinements.

GIMP Tutorial: How to Design a Web Icon in GIMP 2.10 (2018)

In this GIMP 2.10 tutorial, I show you how to design a flat web icon for use on websites (for web designers) or anywhere you wish to use an icon! I’ll show you how to make the icon design from scratch, including designing the circle, phone, and shadow. I’ll also show you how to be able to create additional colors, and how to export the icon with or without a background with optimal settings for the web.

This tutorial is for beginners but is great for all skill levels. I use GIMP 2.10.0-RC1 (Release Candidate 1) for this tutorial, but you can follow along with older version of GIMP (i.e. GIMP 2.8.22) or with newer version of GIMP.

Dreams that seem real can keep us thinking for days. Mexican photographer and digital artist Felix Hernandez creates dreamlike worlds that make us think. Take a closer look at how he combined photos of a scene he built in his studio with his subtle use of Adobe Photoshop CC to make us wonder what happened on a snowy night in the middle of nowhere.
