If you are making your own ahime RWBY to me seems like the one man standard you can reach.   It gives me a bar to reach.   After all this is a popular online anime.  I would love to be this popular.     So it is good to take a look at some criticism behind this internet animation.  This will give you some do’s and not to do’s.  So maybe you can make something even better.

 

 

I thought this was a great tutorial.  It shows how to use 3d reference to make an actual 2d animation.   If you have a hard time drawing this might be the way to do things if you want to do 2d.

If you want to learn how to make your own anime this is the guy to watch.

 

You cannot draw but want to make a manga or anime?

Well why not try doing things the old fashioned way?  By tracing.   What tracing?  That is horrible!   Why would I trace someone elses work?

You don’t have to do that silly.  You can trace using references you create.   There are many programs you could use to setup a shot and then trace it.

You can make your own characters in 3d and then use them to trace.

Here is an example of creating your own characters.
