Welcome to the first post of the translation project I’m working on that uses this book: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.amazon.com/animation-making-course-Akiyoshi-Watanabe-Takashi/dp/4774187518&ved=2ahUKEwj65OnBj_fnAhUJSq0KHX72BLAQFjAAegQIAxAB&usg=AOvVaw2IFTrwJwGGc36rJWa1q5Aa
I wanted to translate this book for not only my benefit of using Clip Studio but for everyone else who wants to use as their animation program.
I want to run a free course on this by providing weekly video content of each lesson and assigning “homework”. Hopefully towards the end beginners will feel more confident in using Clip!
I AM BY NO MEANS A PRO AT BOTH THIS PROGRAM AND ANIMATION IN GENERAL
