Featured GoAnimator: Angron - Dragon Man

GoAnimator Ẫᾔḡṝớῄ is the January winner of my GoAnimate, Get Featured in TET's Blog contest. Angron has had his account with GoAnimate since June of 2011 and in that time has created 34 animations.

Angron chose the very first episode of his Dragon Man series to be featured in my blog. The series tells the story of a Dragon Loving Hero. In part 1, 18-year-old James Howard has to rescue his widower Dad from one of evil Mayor's minions.

The animation features mostly, GoAnimate's Lil' Peepz, Chibi Ninja theme.

Angron says about his choice...
The reason why I chose this one is because this is one of the cartoons from my childhood, and it was so awesome I could finally make something originally from paper to animation. :-) 
My inspiration was that I always loved Dragons, so I made a superhero named "Dragon Man", which happened back in 2006, and later in 2012, the idea of making a series was in thought, and, later in October, I made the first episode with the voices of Me, Smirks, and Hollywood3514 
I made the logo for the video with Doink.com, sadly it shut down [though still available as an iPad/iPhone app - TET]. For my voice work, I used Audacity. All I had to do was lower the pitch. ;-)
For those of you that noticed those impressive opening titles and were wondering where to find them on GoAnimate... They're actually created at another site, flixpress.com. You'll need at least a GoPlus account with GoAnimate to upload your title videos to the GoAnimate Studio.

If you've enjoyed Angron's work then why not check out more of his animations on GoAnimate.

Eric W. Schwartz: Cartoonist, Animator and Amiga Die Hard

American Cartoonist, Eric W. Schwartz, (whose unofficial Amiga Icon, Amy the Squirrel, is pictured on the July 92 edition of CU Amiga cover on the right) is my only real animation hero. Sure there are the big names like Disney, Chuck Jones, Tex Avery and even Preston Blair whose influences can all be seen in my own cartoons but Eric did what none of the others could. He showed that really great 2D computer animation was within my reach with little more than an Amiga Computer, a copy of Deluxe Paint and Moviesetter.

This was at a time when computer based animation was in its infancy (outside of computer game animation) and Flash was something that lights did.

There were many great Amiga artists but Eric was really the only one consistently making very funny, traditional style animations. His humor and drawing style is heavily influenced by classic Warner Brothers and Disney cartoons but he managed to build on this, creating something that was recognizably Eric's own style.

Review: CrazyTalk Animator 3 vs Moho Studio Pro 12

Reallusion's CrazyTalk Animator 3 or Smith Micro's Moho Studio Pro 12. Which of these 2D animation applications is right for you?

Regular readers of this blog will know I'm a strong supporter, and fairly proficient user of CrazyTalk Animator since version 1. It's a great piece of software for producing 2D animations from purchased content quickly and, with version 3, is easier than ever to create animations from your own art.

Lesser known is that I first purchased Moho Studio Pro 12 (then known as Anime Studio Pro 9) back in October of 2012 and have been upgrading it to the latest version ever since because I believed in it as an application for creating great 2D animation to TV quality standard. As such, it's a much more complex application than CTA3 that I only got around to learning properly late last year. I'm still in the process of blogging my progress.

Despite this I feel I've learned enough of Moho to compare it to CTA3 to help you determine which …

Voice All Your Own Animated Characters with Voice Changer

Voice Changer by AVSoft is real time voice manipulation software that can be used for a wide range of purposes including (according to their website); Voice-over and voice dubbing for audio/video clips, presentations, narrations, voice messages, voice mails, E-greeting cards, broadcasting, etc.; mimic the voice of any person, create animal sounds, change/replace/remove voices in songs, videos,etc.

I bought it for the specific purpose of changing my own voice, to extend my vocal range, for voicing characters in my own animations.
I was fortunate enough to get this software at a significant discount that made it difficult to refuse, given that I'd never tried it, or even heard of it before. I'm not sure if I would have bought it at the full price given that much of what it can do (for my needs) can also be done with the freeware audio program, Audacity.
Voice Changer is relatively easy to install and set up. Once installed simply change you default microphone to the installed AV…
