    I recognise that my style of animation pales in comparison to line-drawn animation.
    I create cartoons purely for my jokes and scripts.
    This tutorial was made with the intent of helping people with no experience in After Effects create a character animation and to show them how to make a simple cartoon from start to finish.

    This After Effects tutorial was created by Ross Plaskow

    This is strictly for beginners.
