I can teach a broad range of disciplines including handdrawn 2D, digital 2D, 3D, stopmotion, and others. If you're merely interested in the design aspects, that's fine, too. I have a comprehensive knowledge of 3D techniques and digital art workflows, and I can tailor the course to meet those needs, as well.

Private Animation Teacher

I've created many animations in the context of video games as a professional artist. I primarily use Krita and Adobe Animate. I specialize in character animations, mostly humans and animals, but also help students with larger projects such as short films. I've helped students with storyboards, keyframing, background paintings and tips on video editing.

Students may use any animation program they'd like, as long as they have drawing and timeline features. If students are absolute beginners, I recommend downloading Krita or Pencil2D. Krita is great for illustration and animation, Pencil2D is very basic and ideal for absolute beginners. Both Krita and Pencil2D are free.

My goal is to focus on the study of motion and help the student implement their own skills in drawing and observation.
I can also help the student build a portfolio in preparation for college or applying for companies (games, animation studios).

Raymond's artwork is amazing, and his teaching style is easy and relaxed. It's obvious that his skills come from a position of passion and creativity rather than simply 'hitting the books'.

"Eric was helpful. I had a quick intro in to what I needed to know for my project and what tools would be most useful.

It would have been ideal, if I had known ahead of time that he was not well-versed on all features of Adobe Creative Cloud, but at least I know what is possible with his expertise.

Otherwise Eric conveyed a professional competence and was easy to talk to."
