Yo! I hope that this is helpful to some people!! These things might not be work for everyone but if you’re a bit lost it’s a place to start! These are all free to download so do not worry. If you want to get into animating I wish you ALL of the luck! It’s not easy and you’ll have a lot to learn but you can totally do it if you put your mind to it!
FireAlpaca (is a good alternative free drawing software (Thanks guys!)):
Anything else you guys need help on? 8D
FOR THE RECORD:
To animate I generally use Flash, for backgrounds I use GIMP and to edit I use either Lightworks or Premier
Additionally I draw using a Bamboo Pen graphics tablet
This was recorded with the screen recording software called OBS (Open Broadcaster Software)
