I'm learning animating my illustrations in after effects, after seeing some real cool animation from @Glenn Thomas
First project is going to be this guy and another (with a piano) walking into the middle of the screen, and playing some music with the childish head bob. Maybe a sun in the middle, bobbing along. I want it fun and cartoony. I'm finally getting all this texturing and detail business done in illustrator, very happy about that, too.
The project is for theddlboys music

Cool. What resources or website are you using to learn?
@Jonathan Patterson I will learn after effects with just a few tutorials i've found so far. the most helpful being breath of life by greenglasses http://ae.tutsplus.com/tutorials/workflow/breath-of-life-series-day-1/
@Kirk Wallace Cool. I remember coming across that one a while ago. A little animation goes a long way in overall effectiveness of an illustration!
I have a Martin Backpacker like that right next to my desk...nicely done.
@Jonathan Patterson yea i think just a few tips and tricks here and there will get me started enough to learn more and more. any helpful links you've got? i find lynda has some cool pay tutorials for like 30 bucks on animating 2d animations. might look into that, for AE. http://www.lynda.com/After-Effects-tutorials/2d-character-animation/734-2.html
@Sean Glass thanks! glad you were able to notice, anyway. Most of the comments on their channel are asking what sort of guitar that is, so its safe to say you're one of the first to recognize it, even as an illustration

Here's the other character from theddlboys animation that i'm going to start working on. Now that both of them are just about finished in 100% illustrator, I'm going to give animating them a try.
