Domestika Basics · 7 courses included

Toon Boom Harmony has become the standard software in the animation industry, and one of illustrator and animator Pedro Alpera’s personal favorites. His professional experience includes working with major clients like WeTransfer, Muno, Paramount Comedy, and Cartoon Network, among others. In this 7-part Domestika Basics, he teaches you all you need to use the software, without any previous experience. Discover how he works to create your own incredible 2D animations and give life to your animated stories and characters.

Start by understanding how the software works, go through its characteristics and main tools to get familiar with the interface, and set up your preferences.

In the second course, explore the different options available to draw and add color. Pedro teaches you how to use the drawing tools and introduces you to the layer functions.

Start animating in Toon Boom Harmony in the third course by discovering the main tools to do so, such as the timeline and interpretations.

In the fourth course, see the methods to create masks and get introduced to nodes, learning how to work with them and create effects.

Go a step further by creating bones and deformers for your animated characters in the fifth course, learn some Rig tricks to help you work on your project.

Although Toon Boom Harmony is a 2D program, it also has a 3D space, which you will discover in the sixth course. See how to work depth, and see some viewer modes to navigate through the interface easily to conclude the course.
