I’m glad you decided to learn how to sketch for animation.
To start off with this course, I would like to answer one super important question.
How good do you need to be in sketching and drawing to be able to do decent animation?
The answer is:
You have to be decent at drawing.
Notice that I didn’t say you have to be the best, or you have to be very very good, no. You just have to be decent.
How can you be decent?
With a bit of practice.
As a disclaimer, I’m not a great artist, I’m not very good at drawing myself, I’m just decent, and that’s good for animation.
