Well-known as a traditional cell animator Declan Walsh has worked with the biggest names in the 2D animation industry, and now uses Cartoon Animator to produce animated effects and more.
In this interview with Reallusion, Declan discusses his history in the field of animating and why he chose Cartoon Animator as his new animation software.
“When I started using Cartoon Animator, I was really impressed by its ability to bring the old and the new ways together. I was amazed by how little time it took to produce a head rotation, or to match expressions to character’s faces. This type of thing would have taken up so much of my time had I gone down the traditional route!”Declan Walsh | Animator 2D/3D – Painter digitally and traditionally – Graphic Artist
