I’m a spoiled brat who likes to animate and draw. And I like to listen to explicit rap music.

look at other people's works and what they do well. also watch skribble kibble. they do great analysis stuff on aniamtion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rd0JhZDwQi8&list=PLYDh8mMwv-pPM8DPu-LsG6MQeIkKsHByb Also always try to do different things styles and poses for art and animation

A video won’t count as a suggestion.

My suggestion is that you learn and apply the 12 principles of the animation, but if you already know them, I only recommend practicing.

Ok.

@fdawer @stevetherapper it does a great job pointing out what makes some animations good and others not so good and that is only part of my suggestion

Ok.

The Animator's Survival Kit

What?

@stevetherapper You need Animation Tutorials

Those won’t count. They are videos... unless... those still won’t help. I’m in a rush. Tell me exactly what I need to do.

@stevetherapper Really......... Do you see my Art (https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/angryduck16/cowboy-pico )?

What does that have to do with animation suggestions?

Learn how to do EVERYTHING, from voice acting, background design, color theory, music composing, character design ,writing, sound effect recording, 3d animating, to anatomy. It's a very demanding art you have to master lots of art forms if you're going to do it alone.
So the biggest thing to take away from this is don't be afraid to ask for help.

Ok, but I don’t want to do 3D animating.

@stevetherapper You need to sketch your characters, first and then draw your outlines. @thepixelizer @fdawer Right guys!

What. ?

Dude, we've given you a lot of advice and you keep throwing it out of the window. It doesn't really seem like you want any advice. It only takes a quick google to see what were talking about.

I’m not. Just give me details instead of making me have to go to a website.

@stevetherapper Really, Steve. You never heard Outlines.

Yes I have.

@stevetherapper good.

Now what?

@stevetherapper well....... JUST DO IT, STEVE! JUST DO IT! YOU NEED TO LEARN ABOUT ANIMATION BUT YOU NEED TO RESPECT OTHERS! DON'T RUSH! JUST LEARN!!!!!!!!!!
