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.

About Emily S.

I've created many animations in the context of video games as a professional artist, having worked in ToonBoom, GIMP and Photoshop. I specialize in character animations, mostly humans and animals.

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).

I've graduated with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts from Carnegie Mellon University, and worked for Disney Research for a year and a half.

This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!

Do I really have to give review after giving 5 star?
But this is for those who need it,
First of all she is classical former Disney artist and for the basics it's necessary to learn 2d in today's time.
Ruth mentored me from the beginning of my career and I have learned a lot, she is so caring, kind and loving. I will recommend you to take lesson from her
You will get the best knowledge out of her, whatever I'm today is because of her.

Quite honestly it's difficult for me to write a review that truly describes Ruth Elliot-Hilsdon, she is that talented an individual. I've known Ruth for several years now and I'm well aware of her outstanding career in animation. That said, as an educator, Ruth is phenomenal. Ruth worked with my daughter in animation. Her kind nurturing approach to teaching was amazing. My daughter learned, accomplished much and enjoyed the experience. Ruth is a delightful individual, a true professional and an individual dedicated to whatever goal she sets. I recommend her highly.
