Hello and welcome to the the second level of the Pixel Course: Animations

course 2

Through this pixel course, Tim Von Rueden takes a closer look at creating pixel art while in Photoshop CS5 using a Wacom Intuos4 tablet.


What you’ll learn in this course

This course continues where the first left off. We initially set up Photoshop to be animation ready and take you through setting up frames and framerate and how to save these animations out as .GIFs. After a quick demo of animating with a green dot, and blinking, we also take a look at a flag wave animation. We then take Blender Cookie’s mascot, Baker and take him through a Blinking, Idle, Walking, and Jumping animation set.

The resources are in the downloadable source files and contain the following: Each of the animation sets in Photoshop with the different layers along with their corresponding GIFs.
