Learning Animation

MH Tutorials has dedicated itself to free online modeling and animation tutorials for years. My videos are specifically targeted towards prop and environment modeling, rigging and animation. Anything from scenes, to vehicles and from furniture to game weapons…
Whether still renders or animated scenes, I cover it all.

But for those of you who know me ( and know me well ) , you know there is one thing I do NOT do….
I do not model or animate characters and I never have. ( and probably never will )

For that reason MH Tutorials decided to team up with Bloop Animation.
They provide great courses for those of you seeking a career in character animation either in 2D or 3D.

Whether you are a seasoned veteran in the 3D modeling industry or have no background in 3D at all, it doesn’t matter., if you are taking your first steps into the character animation part of things it is absolutely critical to understand the fundamentals. They have been taught to thousands of students and will without a doubt become the most critical part of your character animation knowledge.
