Welcome to my blog

My name is Gilles Charbonneau

I am a long time 2d animator and I would like to share with you some of the tips and tricks I have learned over the years by posting tutorials and articles on this blog.


Update #3

Hello everyone.

Another quick update.

I am done recording the principles of animation videos, will try to put them together next week-end.

These turned out to be more involved then initially planned, which is good, since these are the basis of any good animation.

I will definitely put one of these on the store page as a freebie, so check for it in the next few days.

At the moment I am putting the final touch to the characters I used for the principles of animation videos.

These are high quality, fully rigged characters with 8 views, phonemes set and several actions, like walk and run cycles.

The characters are made with Anime Studio 6.2, so they should work for everyone.

I will put pictures as soon as I am done with them!

I might put those for sale on my store page as well.

I will send them to all the great peoples who pre-ordered the set.

As of this writing, 23 peoples pre-ordered the set and I want to thank them all for their support, it made Me confident that all the work I am putting into this is not in vain! :)

I will leave the pre-order up for the time being.

Thanks you all!



  1. Sounds great. Can't wait, but do take your time. I know how much time this takes. You know the expression "The hare never made it, but the turtle did"
    Ha, in this case your certainly not a turtle, but just as an encouragement, as it takes tons of time.

  2. Hello Dust.

    Yeah, it takes time, but I believe the wait will be worth it.

    I posted a tutorial I made over 10 years ago for another software on the forum and it reminded me of how long I have been teaching.

    And the funny thing is, I like it as much now as I did when I started so many years ago! :)

    Again, thanks for your support! :)
