The Ultimate Beginner's Course
Learn 2D Visual Effect Animation with
Artist, Quentin Cordonnier
Have you ever been hypnotized by a chimney fire, the flow of waves, or raindrops dripping on your window? Then this course will basically teach you how to draw and animate these kinds of things. From fire, explosions and water, to electricity or weather... but also magic ! You’ll learn the secrets to creating 2D visual effect animation.
In each chapter, we will cover a different element like fire, water, smoke...
We will talk about how to get inspiration, how to create interesting and dynamic designs, but mainly how to animate it.
You will have solid knowledge on :
- Creating appealing shapes and dynamic designs, from illustrative to realistic/organic style
- Understanding the basic physics of elements such as fire, smoke, water, electricity
- Hand drawn animation technics from rough to clean animation
- Creating loops
- Planning, rendering
2D animation is still a long learning process though, and requires a lot of practice, but you will have all the keys to keep on perfecting your skills by yourself ! By the end of this course you will have enough material to create a short 2D visual effect showreel, either to apply to animation schools or to apply to your first 2D VFX job.
About the Instructor
My name is Quentin Cordonnier, I have been working as a professional 2D visual effect animator for 8 years now. I draw frame by frame effects for commercials, tv series, video games, and movies, such as “Klaus” for Netflix. Through my career, my experiences as supervisor were very useful for me to build this course content, as it helped me understand the issues which are commonly faced when starting visual effect animation. I have received many requests for an online course, so I am glad to have this opportunity now.
