The days of pencil and paper animation at most studios are long gone but that doesn’t mean those same frame-by-frame techniques can’t live on with our tools du jour. There are still old-timers teaching the young-bloods how to animate the old fashioned way, one drawing at a time. We couldn’t find one of those old-timers to teach this course though, so we’ve got Conan Sinclair instead!
Conan is a full time freelance animator working on cartoons and game projects in Victoria, Australia. He has prepared an amazing four hour course on the “tradigital” skills he uses in his work.

This is the first 60 minutes of CartoonSmart’s four leg walk cycles animation course. This part teaches how to animate a horse walking. Future parts teach a different horse running, cats, dogs, elephants, and tons of tips for animating just about anything on four legs.
Source files for this part of the demo lesson can be found here. You can find details on the full Flash animation package can be found here.
