Some of the highlights include which programs are the very best for digital drawing, how to deal with moving holds, and the every popular topic of jobs in the animation industry! Check it out, and if you have questions for the next Q&A send them along or leave them in the comment section right here!
Meet lovely character animator Viola Baier! She answers a lot of your questions from last year’s FMX Q&A like: What aspects of your animation should you focus on? Why should you animate a bouncing ball? She also gives us a glimpse at her Annie Award winning diploma film “Wedding Cake”.
Thought we’d try something different today! I’m curious where you put your art and animation online. Do you have your own blog that you keep updated regularly with new work? Fan of DeviantArt, Newgrounds, or Tumblr? Maybe Instagram or Facebook are more your fortes? Leave a comment below and talk about where you like to house your work online for others to enjoy. Feel free to include a link as well if you’d like, and others can stop by and see your efforts!
Like last year we will have a closer look at the FMX conference that takes place from April, 22-25 in Stuttgart Germany. Lots of creative, talented people from our industry will be there and we will be making interviews again (check out last year’s interviews).
So if you have any questions that you always wanted to ask a professional, here is your opportunity! Just post your questions in the comments below and we might just pick it. You can direct it to any of the persons on the list or ask something general like “ask an animator, if….”.
These are the people we will probably be talking too:
