At AnimSchool, characters aren’t just a tool. They’re a main focus!
We teach people how to make great characters. We teach how to make them act convincingly. We’re focused on appeal.
We started AnimSchool because we love appealing characters!
Since the founding of AnimSchool, our characters have become known worldwide as the standard in speed, flexibility, and appeal. Over 7,000 people are using AnimSchool characters worldwide, and have been used to win and compete in numerous contests.
AnimSchool CEO Dave Gallagher said "Growing up, I was enthralled with the characters in movies like Jungle Book and 101 Dalmations. Some of the Warner Bros. shorts were just as inspiring to me! To me, those 2D characters with their expressivity, stunning character design, and personality are highwater marks. Even though in 3D animation we can refine the acting like never before, it’s so rare to find 3D characters that come close to being that expressive and beautiful.
This is what drives me and excites me in this field! Now I want to bring those sensibilities to students all across the world here at AnimSchool."
At AnimSchool, students learn how to make and move appealing characters.
Animators love animating with fun, flexible character rigs. We love seeing characters come to life! Character artists learn to model great appealing shapes and topologies that deform well. Then how to hand-craft rigs that invite a solid performance.
Whether students enroll into the 3D Character or the 3D Animation program, they will appreciate our commitment to characters.
