So you want to learn animation?

You are probably here because you saw that wonderful animation created by Dave over at Stofka Creative Ltd. and want to know how to create your own 2D animation. Well that's awesome to hear, nothing (in my opinion), is more satisfying and fulfilling then being able to create and see your own story and animation and share it with others!

Who is the instructor?

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.

What is Moho 13 exactly?

Without giving you the full Wikipedia - Moho, when it was first created back in 1999 by Mike Clifton was called Moho, then in 2007 it was called Anime Studio, then once again changed back to Moho in 2016. 

Moho is a powerful 2D animation software that allows you to bring your drawings in from other software such as Photoshop or Illustrator or create them using the Moho drawing tools, rig those characters with bones, and animate them.

Moho has powerful animation features that probably won’t make much sense to you now - but you will soon learn more of, that makes animating easier and more intuitive than other 2D animation software.

You have always wanted to learn animation - now is the time.

I remember for the longest time I wanted to learn animation - but I always had excuses. I don’t have a good enough computer - so I would buy the computer. I don’t have good enough software - so I would buy the software. I don’t have enough time...that right there was the biggest excuse. Fact is - you almost always have free time, do you watch Netflix, YouTube, surf the web? I do. But for some reason I was making the excuse that I couldn’t animate BECAUSE I was doing those things. 

It wasn’t till summer break from college that I told myself - “I am going to do this”. For a whole month I locked myself in my room and taught myself how to animate. I didn’t make time for anything else other than running errands to get necessities and eating 3 meals a day. It started off rough, my biggest hurdle was first learning the animation tool I was using. Then once I got over the learning curve - I decided on the animation I was going to create. At the end of the month I was proud with what I had accomplished - my animation was really crappy. But I knew if I stuck to it and stopped making excuses, I knew I could get better. And so can YOU.

Understand and Apply Binding Techniques (Intermediate)

Stop wasting time trying to figure this stuff out on your own!  I have been there and done that. You want to know how long it took me? 3 Years . Learn how rigging and binding works in 1-2 hours. That's it. Trust me. The rest is practice and application . I have broken down binding and their methods as clearly as I possibly could. In fact , my wife, who has no experience in Moho what so ever, was my first student. She was able to understand perfectly clear everything that I was teaching. If she didn't, I would go back and re record the whole lecture.  See what my students say:  "Now my headaches are gone! Thanks. It is easy to follow because it is clear as water."  "This is the first course that has allowed me to feel some hope for success in rigging" "I have no experience in Animation and this course is been helping me so much, Thank you!" Take what you learn, apply it, and start doing what you really want to do, ANIMATION
