    Guys, I never really knew what the traditional animation process is like, like the old Disney films, animating on paper and going digital and painting. How do they do this? Do they need to do line art all over again when they go digital? And how do they paint? I'm a bit ignorant about this sorry

    Did they had some kind of software? And how do they do it today?

    I recently started to learn how to animate and have been sharing my creations on YouTube. With unpredictable reach/view counts, I found myself imagining what might be going on with the mysterious algorithm behind closed doors.

    I spent over a month making this animation.

    This is my second animation. I don't really have a lot of equipment/software so i did it the old fashioned way. Enjoy!

    Looking for a certain animation

    I am looking for a certain animation that I watched long ago. I only remember one scene. They have monks, masters and their students. One master turned evil. In the scene, that evil master attacks the temple and other masters by projecting a ring of energy at them. However, the top monk master projects that attack back onto him injuring him. I really don't have any other details but I doubt that it was an anime. Just an animation. The characters were really human like in their appearance. I would appreciate any help or suggestions as to what its title could be. Even better if you that episode. I have checked out ATLA and xiaolin showdown but I don't believe that they are the one

    Made a video in the style of "If the Emperor had a Text-to-Speech Device". Originally, I made this video only for myself and my friends, but decided to share it and see what you think.

    Wanting to hire an animator to animate a few stories I wrote

    Hi, I'm new to this, but I want to hire an animator to animate a few stories I wrote a few years ago. I've wanted to do this for a while, but I've never had the motivation. I want someone who can provide examples of their work, and could subtitle one version and send one without, (due to college studies and hiring voice actors i wouldn't have enough time) hopefully someone can help me :) Price is negotiable, and currency is USD.

    The first animation that I’m proud of

    I took some inspiration from Keiichiro Watanabe.

    There’s something that feels off in this scene and I don’t know what, I’d love some critique!
