Made for animators

We’ve designed this course to be tailored specifically for aspiring animators, or professional animators transitioning from a different program. Toon Boom Harmony is an incredibly robust professional-grade animation software, and can do pretty much anything in the realm of 2D. Everything from stick figures to Disney-level results. We've brought an amazing 2D animator to take you through this amazing journey, and I truly believe he created one of the best Toon Boom animation courses out there.

What will you learn?

Interface

We’ll start by going over the Toon Boom interface and understanding how to work with different display views and how to use the X-sheet like a traditional animator.

Creating Artwork

We'll go over different ways to import or create artwork for your shot. We'll learn how to create the outline and the fill for our characters, as well as add special effects.

Frame-by-Frame Animation

We'll start animating our shot with traditional frame-by-frame animation, going through all the steps from planning the key poses, roughing out the animation, clean-up and coloring.

Rig a Character

After covering the traditional side of 2D animation, we'll use Harmony's advanced rigging tools to bone-rig a character using cutout rigs, puppet rigging and deformation. We'll also see how to set up mouth shapes for automatic lip-syncing.

Finishing a Shot

Through this course you'll see how an entire fully-animated shot is produced. We'll add special effects, camera movement in 3D space, and export the final shot in different formats.

Super detailed, fast paced.

We hate long, dragged-out tutorials. We believe in bite-sized lessons with a clear structure that get straight to the point without skipping any important information. We’ll take you step-by-step through the program’s learning curve.

From our students:

I bought Toon Boom Animation as 2D animation always eluded me. I work well with CG but traditional animation was a uphill battle for me. The course was so helpful and illuminating, provided a quick-start to working in Toon Boom, and got me comfortable enough to then explore on my own.

Julian Grant, Award winning animator and filmmaker, USA

Bloop Animation provides a very simple-to-use learning platform, making all the content easily accessible. The option of downloading the video lessons makes it easy for me to carry the course with me wherever I go. I always have it on my iPad and it’s a constant reference.

Luis Miguel Guerra Abril, animator and designer, Spain

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the software included with the course?

No, this is a course, not the actual software. You will have to buy Toon Boom Harmony CC at www.toonboom.com

What hardware do I need?

As long as you have a relatively modern computer and can run Toon Boom Harmony and connect to the internet, you should be good to go.

What if I don’t like the course?

No worries, the course comes with a 30 day money back guarantee. If you don’t like the course, simply email us and you’ll get a full refund, no questions asked.

Will I always have access to the class or is it just for a limited time?

You will always have access to all the courses and products you purchase from Bloop.

Will I get the whole course right away, or will it be available over a period of time?

You will have access to the entire course and materials immediately after purchasing.

I’ve never used this program before. Will I be lost?

This course was created assuming you’ve never used the program before. We go over all the basics to make sure you are able to follow along.

I don’t know how to animate. Will I be able to follow?

Yes, however I should mention that this course does not teach the concepts of animation, but rather shows you the tools and methods for animating with the software. Check out our Animation Foundations course for the basic principles of animation.
