The only way to get better is to put in the hours. Reading and watching tutorials can only get you so far. Practice the fundamentals and do shit. Looking for absurd amounts of reference and tutorials will only give you more time to goof off and procrastinate. No one is going to help you, they can give you insight and critique on the process of whatever your making, be it a drawing or an animation, but the only person that's gonna get you better is you.

Stop looking for shit and just do shit, it's not that hard just time consuming.

uhhhhhhHHHH... dont pay attention to marks post, waters seems to be the only one in this entire thread that posted anything that makes sense.

I'll throw some Jomm wisdom your way. Anybody can animate for what ever reason they want to. Your motive can range anywhere from "It's fun" to "I want to become a professional.", however, being frustrated with your skills to the point that you want to improve faster thinking there are shortcuts will only hinder if not stunt your growth completely (in my opinion at least). Don't get me wrong though, being frustrated with your own skills is key to improving, but it's a slow process and you need to be patient. I think people that animate because they find it fun will improve at a faster rate than people who just want to land a job. If you're too stressed with your current position that you aren't good enough then you're just adding layers of unneeded pressure on yourself. If you aren't critical enough then you wont improve. Basically just find your inner peace and go at your own pace yo. #kungfupanda

Some actual tips on improving:
- Always animate with direction
- Try new things constantly
- Pick at one thing you dislike about your animations and work on that specifically till you get it down
- Animating 10 hours straight a day is not as effective as animating 10 hours a day, a couple hours at a time with sufficient breaks in between so you can absorb what you've done and where you can improve as you go.
- Rotoscoping is a helpful tool to learn to some people, just don't post it and call it your own. Don't even post it and call it a rotoscoped practice lol.
- Frame by frame people's animations, see their timing and spacing and how everybody does something differently.

I hate the idea of ranks in animation and skill levels but if we had to use those terms then what differentiates "beginners" from "intermediates" is probably just getting the key fundamentals down.

- easing
- heavy spacing
- weight (this IMO bumps your skill level up the most noticeably)
- squash and stretch
- not makin' yo stuff so wobbly and resizing (yeah this too)

Learn how to animate things smoothly (ones) then you can understand how to cut corners and animate on twos or threes.

Ok this is good enough, enjoy kiddies.
