2d Animation Schools

on: March 06, 2015, 05:36:39 pm
I have a quick random question. Are there any animation schools for 2d pixel art?
Life is everything. Simple as that.

I don't know of a pixel specific, physical school around here.
But there are certainly animation schools.
And you can translate general animation theory to any medium.

Me and Probo chat about starting one someday.
But such a thing is a bit out of reach at the moment.  :blind:

That's a cool idea, we could have a class room forum and everyone follows the OP lecture and then gives it a shot :)
Sorta like following a tutorial..

That goes hand in hand with the book idea, and the wiki idea lol.

Sounds good, but unless someone takes action and starts putting things together all we got are good ideas.

This makes me wonder why we have an Animation Feature Chest board with nothing in it. A bit off-topic I admit, but that board could be used for the school/book idea.  :)

Any suggestions out of the animation board?

Without funding and/or food Pixelation can't be a school.
But there's certainly still a lot to learn from each other here.

I think Rosier's "Hyper Light Drifter Inspired Sprites" thread could be transplanted from good reads to the animation feature chest for sure.

Also might I suggest adding some more animation links either to a sticky in the animation board or to the linkage thread? Pointing people to where they can learn about basic animation concepts, The Animators Survival Kit and what have you. I'm sure there's a website somewhere that does a good rundown on the principles of animation but I don't know where, I learned in meatspace :crazy:

Write it and I will put it in there and make it sticky.
Or start a thread discussing those things and write a conclusion at the end which will be made to a sticky thread then.

Ideas are good, but it's also a lot about the realization.
We need a new important link collection anyways.

There are a few animation topics in the good reads section, which rather should be moved in the animation parts, but I am still busy with a link directory for this section, and as it looks it will take a few more weeks until this will be completed, since there are now tons of threads.
