Brand spanking new tutorials and templates are here!
The first deep discount this month is on our first real Toon Boom Animate Package. This one covers Character Design and Illustration in general. Any version of Animate will be fine for the course. Its 8 hours and for ONLY 2 weeks, the price will be $15. This course is taught by Justin Cook! A new instructor that does a spot on British accent the entire time. Kidding, the accent is real. That discount is here.
Next up, John NyQuist returns with a 2 hour lesson on Blender and Second Life. So for all you people living in the Matrix world of Second Life, this lesson is perfect. You don’t have to already know Blender either, John gives a quick get-ya-started lesson for the program, then goes into the fun stuff of making custom clothes for your Second Lifer. That discount is here.
And Tibi has created an awesome new Album Grid template. This is probably my favorite one to date actually. Play around with resizing the example version, and tell me the math going on there isn’t brilliant. That discount is here.
Finally all the recent discounts are at the usual spot…. http://www.cartoonsmart.com/this_month.php5
So what to do about this darn-pesky iPad and Flash!?!…
There’s a tutorial for that. I’m making it now, while I myself go through the annoying task of making CartoonSmart both Flash-friendly and iPad-friendly. And yes, there’s ways of doing so. Expect that tutorial as soon as my voice doesn’t sound like I have a sore throat. By the way, the front page of CartoonSmart is one of the few pages to be converted (UPDATE: See my comment in the Comments section about this switchover, it has less to do with the iPad and more to do with Flash’s height cap)
My iPhone/iPad Game Development series has been updated with a lesson on creating Universal Apps (those that run for both device types). So thats Session 6 – Part 2, if you bought the course and didn’t receive an updated email link about a week ago, be in touch. And for those keeping track, the course is now around 17 hours and STILL only $35. And by the way, this course will have at least one more update.
Finally, do you need Web Design or Animation work??…
If so, contact my friend Andy at FlashBooty.com . He’s offered a special promotion to anyone reading this. $100 off jobs valuing around $1000. $300 off work valuing $2000, and 20% off any work over 3k. So that could be a big discount off development of your entire website or animation project.
