For several years I've been using a 2D animation software called Anime Studio. I always got the Debut version every year because I could afford it, and I'd been doing pretty fine with it, making "cutout" animation in the style of South Park (but not the humor style!). Now, I want something different: I want my 2D animation to look like my hand-drawn print cartoons. So I decided to learn hand-drawn animation with RoughAnimator.
RoughAnimator is a 2D animation app I got in the Google Play Store (I have an Android tablet). It took a while to learn to draw on a tablet with a stylus and I'm still working on it. But so far, I've done some animation that I think is pretty darn good, and looking like my print cartoons. You've seen some of it in past blogposts.
Well, now I'm experimenting more with RoughAnimator doing backgronds--ones that move. Here are my first three.
RoughAnimator is available in the Google Play Store for Android and the App Store for iOS, both for 4.99. It's also available for Windows and Mac, both for 9.99 at roughanimator.com, where you can also upload a trial version of both.
