We are looking for tutorials, “making of” articles, and projects of interest that focus on the art of Animating.

It’s time to share your knowledge of:
Recent improvements in animation tools
Facial animation: emotions, lip syncing, phonemes
Making your animation more believable: arcs, follow through, secondary actions
Free characters and character rigs

Also wanted, great shaders, materials and node setups for any great looking materials and effects.

Look in the animation forum, find ones you like and give the artists behind the best ones an invitiation.

A lot of VFX animations can be found in the Blender test forum and youtube.

i want to make an article this time.

Ill make one on IPO and shape key drivers with Bones in pose mode

Excellent, let me know if you need anything.

I hope I can find time. I can probably give some theory exercises with arcs, spacing, timing, overlap, etc. Things like that. Should we send a blend file too, I know with animation, seeing something move can speak more than 100 words.

Blend files are always an excellent addition to any tutorial. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Srry but im moving so the article will not be in.

:wink: Not a problem, life happens.
