This 30-minute tutorial is meant for beginners to Adobe Photoshop and/or Character Animator. No drawing skills necessary – we’ll just be using simple shapes. I’ll slowly walk through the process of making an animated face, explaining each tool along the way. If you follow along, by the end you should have a working puppet of your own to serve as a foundation for your own animated creations.
