Hi my name is McCoy! For over 5 years I have taught and mentored 1000's of students both new and seasoned users of the software - including Dave Stofka!
I can honestly tell you that I am nowhere near the level of Disney Animation Veteran’s with 30+ years experience - nor am I famous and have a cartoon on Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon. But I have been able to create animations that have been loved and appreciated by family, friends, clients, and of course, myself.
The other thing that has been a real struggle in my years of learning animation from many online courses and tutorials - is there is never a practice/ try it yourself segment where you are given the challenge and are able to post it to get feedback or actually go over it in someway so you can see if you did it correctly or not. That’s what I want to do differently.
In the end, isn’t that why you want to learn animation - because you want to create your own story, with your own characters and bring those characters to life and share that story with others?
Or do you someday want to create your own Cartoon that millions can watch and enjoy on the internet, Netflix, or TV?
No matter what it is that brought you here - you know that you gotta start somewhere.
