Practicing the Puppet Tool...

To improve my 2D animation skills I've taken to teaching myself the Puppet Tool in After Effects. Here's my first attempt:

He's a Loomer, a character that I'm working on and I thought he'd be a good first try. After getting a bit more confident I took an old character to work with:

A familiar face from a previous summer project, he's much more successfully animated than my first one. Next one should be a good'un :)


  1. wow, Molly - amazing to see that fellow move - I look forward to more - the puppet tool seems to be pretty amazing!

    1. Aww thanks Phil, he's always been one of my favourites :D

      He's in a few parts, but the results I've seen with a flat image are really impressive. It's been really fun to learn and hopefully may lead to something good this week too ;)
