Jason Ryan Animation - The Basics

I've done all of the basics Jason Ryan tutorials and here's the Flipbook result of it :) Working in 2d is a lot of fun and it's amazing how much I feel that I've learned already from looking over his shoulder. I totally recommend it!


  1. Hey Martin, been following your blog for quite a while. I'm just starting with animation, do you think the JRA tutorials are a good start? First I want to finnish read the 2 animation bibles and throw my self on these. or is there something "better" to start with?

  2. Hi Edwin

    Yeah, JRA is definitely a good start, cause you get it all explained in a very clear way. You can only get "so" much from reading a book and while I think the Illusion of Life is a must read, it's a little too deep to be the only learning source when you first start out. The Richard Williams book are better in that sense I think. (only my opinion tho). Signing up for Animation Mentor would be a "better" way, but that said, you get a lot out of your money by following the JRA tutorials.

    Hope it helps.


  3. Hi Martin,
    I'm taking this lessons too and I'm learning tons from them.
    You are doing great by the way.

    I take advantage of this oporttunity to congrat for your short film and graduation (never is too late :P) and for the great job you are doing gathering great sources and information about animation in this blog.


  4. Hey Martin!
    Loved your 2D animation, it looks very nice.
    Keep up the good work, it's always fun for me to watch the work of someone who loves animation so much - it definitely shows :)

    Take care!
