joostjordens asked: Hi Alex :) Thank you for your photoshop tutorial! The timing couldn't be better. I'm currently writing for my second year animation and I want to try to combine Maya with 2D animation for this one, but I was quite worried about starting from sketch in TVPaint. So thanks again! If I have anything to show you using your techniques and tips I'll let you know (if you're interested ^^). Big fan btw, phantom limb and charles film pretty much convinced me to also explore 2D animation. Cheers
Heya sweet dude!!! Look forward to seeing :)
ffrick asked: Hi Alex! I don't know if you remember but I made you some questions about the London animation industry and you recomended me to make short stuff that I would like to make. Well, I kinda didn't follow that and I just recently finished a 2 minute short film, hahaha :,D But i'd love if you could see it (it's on my tumblr), and tell me what you think :) Thanks!
Thats really wonderful, Fernanda!

This tutorial is an update from my first tutorial. This time around I use Photoshop CC and delve into a few more techniques that I’ve learned while working in production.
Adobe Photoshop is a tool that a great number of creative minds are familiar and comfortable with. While it isnt software package that has been built with animation specifically in mind there it has huge potential as an animation tool. The ability to control an aesthetic within the software gives a very hands on feel to the process and endless possibilities for your end result. I hope that this tutorial will help bridge the gap between designer and animator, beginner and professional.
I spent some time in New York recently, which was really fun. Got to hang out with old friends, some new friends and filled a little sketch book. I also ate way too much fried chicken. Good times!
