Live Character Animation with Isaac Holk & Dusty Gridley (Ch) – 1 of 3

Join Illustrator Isaac Holk and Motion Graphics Artist Dusty Gridley on Adobe Live as they use Character Animator to teach you a fun and fast approach to 2D animation. Today, they begin designing a character from scratch! Watch and learn as they design a one-eyed furry mythical creature in Illustrator CC and bring it to life in Character Animator.

Isaac and Dusty both work as designers and motion graphics artists at Zookeeper. Zookeeper is an animation studio founded by Dave Waite that focuses on well crafted stories and clever animations to compel brand experiences and grow audiences. They specialize in short-form, ‘snack-able,’ animations with a focus on branding.

Character Animator uses facial performance capture to give users a fresh, fun, and fast approach to 2D animation. The latest release offers faster workflows and animation refinements.
