Great animation comes from experience. The more you animate, the better you’ll get. Still, there are a lot of helpful things you learn along the way, some of which you discover and immediately think “Why didn’t someone tell me this a long time ago?!”
Today we’re putting out a call for those sorts of lessons! What are the things you know now that you would love to hop in a time machine and hand deliver to your younger self back when you were new to animation? What would you sit yourself down and impart? It can be one tip or a whole book’s worth of knowledge, up to you!
We’ll collect the responses in the comments below and compile a list of the best ones so that even though we can’t travel back in time with them, maybe a younger animator in the present can take the wisdom with them in their own journey! Or maybe someone else’s advice will hit home for us as we read them. So let’s hear it:
