I recognise that my style of animation pales in comparison to line-drawn animation.
I create cartoons purely for my jokes and scripts.
This tutorial was made with the intent of helping people with no experience in After Effects create character animation, to show them how to make a simple character from start to finish.

This After Effects tutorial was created by Ross Plaskow

Apologies for the poor quality of this After Effects tutorial. This is strictly for beginners.
I have learned a lot about tutorial making from this.
Hopefully my next tutorial (the bear) will be of a higher quality.
