Module 7 - Shot#5: "Karate Moves" coming soon!

What's in it for me?

In this Masterclass we will push the limits of our imagination and of our Toyrig. With highly stylized, exaggerated and pushed cartoony style animation. Learn various principles for "cartoony" animation applied to 3D rigs, and all sort of different techniques to give your shots a rare and unique feel. NOTE: The number of lessons displayed for pending modules(7-9) are a reference, this is the minimum amount but much more will be added once course is done.

  • Skills up!
