How Character Animation Professionals Can Help You

The general definition of character animation has changed significantly over the years and become more and more sophisticated in its design. Originally, character animation was used by corporations like Walk Disney Studios where professional cartoonists were in charge of creating characters like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, etc. and giving them traits and characteristics that were unique to them. This requires a lot of very technical drawing or animation combined with ingenious ideas on how to give that particular character its own personality, thoughts, behavior, and movements in order to develop the character fully. In modern character animation the same general premise is followed but with a much greater level of detail given to each character. Instead of only having two-dimensional animation, modern three dimensional animations is a lot more common and requires elements like character rigging and the creation of object-oriented frameworks for making character sequences. An example of this type of character animation is in the CGI used in the Pixar Toy Story series.

Whether it’s a simple character animation done in two-dimensions, or a more sophisticated three-dimensional one, a lot of time, effort, and thought goes into transforming a simple drawing of a character into a unique, personable “individual” that has its own thoughts, movements, and behavior. Character animators are the ones tasked with taking on this challenge and have given birth to some of the most memorable creations of our time. Characters like Woody from the Toy Story series started out as a simple drawing and through the use of character animation was turned into a character whose own personality changed and developed over time to become one of the most influential animated characters created in recent times. If you are in need of a character animator who can develop your simple ideas and drawings into a character with its own unique features and personality, look no further than to hire a freelancer who is waiting to take on your job for a negotiable price.
