About this Course

I’m glad you decided to learn how to sketch for animation.

To start off with this course, I would like to answer one super important question.

How good do you need to be in sketching and drawing to be able to do decent animation?

The answer is:

You have to be decent at drawing.

Notice that I didn’t say you have to be the best, or you have to be very very good, no. You just have to be decent.

How can you be decent?

With a bit of practice.

As a disclaimer, I’m not a great artist, I’m not very good at drawing myself, I’m just decent, and that’s good for animation.

You will see for yourself in the following lessons, so if you are super passionate about drawing, you have some practice and want to take your drawing skills to the next level, then I’m not your guy, and this course is not for you.

Maybe you can get some value and some useful tips, but in general this course is not directed to you.

But if you are just starting, and you are not good at drawing, then this course will definitely help you in giving you some pointers to start drawing more decently.

Ok?
