2D Animators for Hire

An animator is a professional artist who combines multiple images to give the illusion of a movement. These images can be hand-drawn pictures, digital images and even models and puppets. In short, animators are like magicians who make you believe that a multitude of static pictures are actually a moving image. An animator who creates two dimensional or 2D illustrations is known as a 2D animator. Traditionally, 2D animation referred to hand-drawn animation, but in the present digital era, it means computer vector animations. In these animations, vectors control the motion of the animation rather than pixels.

What Does a 2D Animator Do?

2D animators create illustrations, which can include characters, designs and storyboards for animation in a two-dimensional space. A 2D animator draws or sketches a series of images on a special paper, with each image representing an action or a movement. These images are then scanned onto a computer and colored with the help of software. When these images are viewed at speed, they give the illusion of movement. A common example of 2D illustration is a modest flipbook made by hand. 2D animators help create websites, video games, advertisements and even videos. They may work as animators, character designers or as storyboard artists and are seen associated with various industries such as video gaming, advertising, training animations, film and multimedia production.

Most animators can be found on Guru – one of the best websites for freelance work. These professionals work across industries and have a diverse portfolio. If you are looking for 2D animators for hire, make sure your freelancer can:

  • Deliver high quality traditional 2D animations in various styles.

  • Design visuals, build animations and motion graphics.

  • Design production layouts.

  • Conceptualize and execute visually striking animation for various platforms.

  • Collaborate with other professionals like editor, cinematographer and director as well as other technical departments to ensure that animation elements are correctly incorporated.

  • Think creatively.

  • Multi-task and adhere to deadlines.

Qualifications of an Animator

It is ideal for your freelancer to have the following skills:

  • Professional education in animation or new media production or related disciplines

  • A solid understanding of the principles of body movement, kinematics and other facets of 2D animation

  • Good working knowledge of relevant graphics, animation and composting software or of Flash, Photoshop and Illustrator 

  • Excellent drawing skills

  • Working knowledge of computer based animation software such as Adobe Animate and DrawPlus

Other than that, a 2D animator should also have good research skills, as each project is distinct from the other and requires an in-depth understanding of the given topic.

Benefits of Freelance 2d Animators

2D animators are constantly upgrading their technical skills and this adds to their versatility. Freelance animators are ideal for stand-alone work such as storyboarding or for single character animation. With freelance animators, the communication is open and direct and this helps in getting the job done much faster.
