Project and resources

We'll create a simple 2.5D animation (mixing 2D and 3D) featuring a pair of glasses and a colorful background, we’ll add some visual effects, sound, then render the whole as a video. We'll cover essential skills like navigation, drawing, animation, and visual effects - all accessible without a graphic tablet (but if you have one, use it!).

It's a beginner-friendly project that's fun to learn and rewarding to complete.

Assignment

Recreate the drawings and animation and feel free to improvise by using different colors or drawing a different shape of glasses or a different background. Feel free to reach out if you are stuck in any part.

Resources

In the attached ZIP file there's the final .blend project file, a sample sound effect and an HTML file containing a comprehensive list of free tutorials and resources.
