Class Description 

Have you ever been texting a friend when you realize you need something extra to really emphasize your point —- you finish typing, select that app search, type in the word fabulous, scroll to find the perfect animated GIF and hit send. Your point has been made! You find you often do this on Facebook and even on your instagram stories and reels. GIFs have truly become a part of every day life. From regular folks to creatives and marketers alike, people have found ways to become extra playful and creative using GIFs.

 

I personally enjoy creating my own GIFs that have that little extra something I am looking for as a designer and illustrator. With apps like procreate and clip studio paint, you can go beyond simple illustration and design work and take your work to the next level using basic 2D animation. In this months class, we are doing just that! Learning how to create our own 90s inspired GIFs in Clip Studio Paint!

Hello everyone! If this your first class with me, welcome! If you are a returning student, welcome back! I am Jen and I will be guiding you through this creative course. I’m a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and educator based out of the midwest and I run Bella + Sophia Creative studio. If you want to learn more about me, you can visit me online at: www.bellasophiacreative.com and you can check out my youtube channel: The Creative Studio. There, you will get a behind the scenes view of the work I do as a creative freelancer and educator  as well as access to a huge library of additional free tutorials relating to art, design and illustration. I am a huge advocate for sharing knowledge in accessible ways and I have found online courses and places like Youtube are great places for this and help me to connect to a diverse group of people looking to learn and grow. 

What the class is about 

So, this month I am coming back with another fun creative course. This time, we are focusing on the ever popular, spunky and fabulous GIF. We will be working together to create a set of fun and simple animated GIFs using our own illustrations inspired by the 90s and animated using the powerhouse software Clip Studio Paint that can then be uploaded to the ever popular GIF site: GIPHY

A few of the Skills Students Will Learn 

When it comes to the skills you will learn, I will be walking you through the basic animation concepts needed to create a GIF using your illustrations, then we will do a walk through of the Clip Studio Paint interface  as we prepare to animate in the software. I will show you how to work with the tools, the layers, how to set up your timeline,  and how to use things like the built in onion skinning effect to help you as you work through animating your illustrations flip book style.

The Class Project and Tools Needed

The tools you will need to work through this class include the folllowing: 

A computer with Clip studio paint installed, a tablet of some sort for illustrating and a stylus. I am working on a Huion brand tablet. I find these tools make things a bit easier when illustrating.

TOOLS:

Clip Studio Paint 

Tablet (Huion)

Stylus 

I am excited to create with you today, let’s get started!!

The Class Project

When it comes to your class project, we will be working on creating 3 simple 90s inspired animated gifs. I am pulling inspiration from the current 90s/Y2k trend throwback as well as my youth. BUT - you are free to work on anything you are inspired by - don’t feel limited to my suggestion. I personally find the era fun to work with and it brings a little joy. I’ll then walk you through my process for uploading my GIFs to GIPHY and how you can still use the GIFs When you are done with your project! Make sure you share the final GIFs you created in the course project gallery!
