Take a spin through the top-grossing films of any given year and you’re guaranteed to run into at least a few animated features. Just this year, “Incredibles 2,” “Hotel Transylvania 3” and “The Grinch” are already among 2018’s top money-makers — and that list could see another entry soon with the heavy buzz around “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.”

Whether it’s a major motion picture release or just someone trying to finish their first animated sequence, animation starts with knowing the basics of the medium. You can learn the tools of the cartoon artist and start creating animations of your own with the training in The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Animation Bundle. Right now, this bundle is over 90 percent off at just $20 from TNW Deals with promo code: GREENMONDAY20. 

The eight courses featured here are the doorway that can give young animators a grasp on the tech tools needed to start turning ideas for animated scenes into real on-screen magic. You’ll learn:

  • Save Time in Character Animation in After Effects (a $49.99 value)
