How do you create realistic characters ?

It’s not that i’m new to animation , it’s that this is seriously a lot harder than the lower software and i just wondering how do i create models like the simpsons for instance ?

Well the 2 main choices are draw frame by frame or make a cut out puppet (and of course mix the 2).

I beleive in the how to section there are videos on this.

I believe the Simpsons is drawn frame by frame - but I’ll double-check on this.

Shows like Ruby Gloom, 6teen, Grossology, and Toot & Puddle would be great examples of shows that were done with cutout characters.

There are some great video tutorials available in the How-To section. Here’s the HowTo for Animate Pro:
