A Bloop Animation course

Toon Boom Harmony is an incredibly robust professional-level animation software, and can do pretty much anything in the realm of 2D animation. Anything from stick figures to Disney-level results. I’ve brought in an amazing 2D animator to take you through this amazing journey, and I truly believe he created one of the best animation courses out there.

Super detailed, fast paced.

We hate long, dragged-out tutorials.

I went through many tutorials which almost put me to sleep, going through a ton of stuff I didn’t need, or repeating the same stuff over and over.

Not our courses. 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.

Made for animators. Experienced or newbies.

Why waste your time on a generic Toon Boom course?

As animators, we built this course from the ground up to be tailored to other animators, both professional and aspiring. A tailored suit is always going to fit better than the one you buy off the rack. And so will this course.

YouTube tutorials are great, but they can only take you so far.

I love looking for tutorials and articles online, and I’m sure you are too (that’s probably how you found us), but I never felt that it’s a good way to learn an entire program or a skill.

You might find the answer to a question you have, but what if you’re starting from scratch? What if you don’t wanna waste your time and start animating sooner rather than later?

Animation training can get expensive.

Most animation training courses, both online and on-campus, can get very pricey, often in the hundreds or thousands of dollars. Those courses usually cover the entire program, including many features you’ll probably never use. Our courses are just the right size and very cost-effective, teaching exactly what you need to know to start animating right away.

What will you learn?


  • Connector.

    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.

  • Connector.

    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.

  • Connector.

    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.

  • Connector.

    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.

  • Connector.

    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.

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.
