Jongha Yoon's Profile & Portfolio
Hello, I'm Jongha Yoon, a 2D animator.
After graduating from Gobelins in Paris, France
I started working as a freelance 2D animator.
I worked on projects for BTS, Adobe,
Riot Games, and Ubisoft,
creating various styles of video
such as music videos and advertisements,
while working with a variety of studios
in the US, Europe, and Korea.
I will teach you how to create
natural movements based on thorough calculations
and knowledge of the laws of physics,
rather than simply relying on your senses or feelings.
Even those who have just been drawing
pictures and don't know much
will be able to follow along.

Get Collaboration Tips
Used For Trendy Animation
Animations are created through the collaboration among several people. Therefore, fast working speed and accurate shape maintenance are essential. Learn all the techniques such as consistent character design and movement that are important in collaborating with other departments.
That Fits Your Character
Depending on how you express the same behavior, the character's personality shows up differently. I will show you how to create a character that looks attractive by choosing the best movement that fits in the character's feature and situation. Especially in Lecture 20, I will show you in detail what movements animator Jongha Yoon chooses at work, so please look forward to it!
Learn the Laws of Physics Necessary for Animation
Even if you are well intended in animation, your animation may look awkward if you don't use the laws of physics properly. Let's learn the essential laws of physics to create animations that maximize naturalness.
Practicing Essential Movements in Character AnimationWalking and running are basic human movements, and there are various theories of walking and running, such as the bouncing ball, arc, timing, and follow-through. Let's see how the pelvis, feet, and back of the hands move along with the types of walking.
Understanding Various Ways of Expression for Each SituationYou compare good and bad animations and figure out common mistakes. In this way, you will learn various ways of expression appropriate for different situations.
Understanding of character volume and original drawing (key poses)If you make take advantage of key poses, you will be able to communicate information more effectively in a limited time. That way, you will learn what a 'good picture' is that is optimized for character animation.
Understanding detailed movements of clothes, fur, hair, etc.Unlike hands and feet that move actively, clothes and hair have passive movement. Let's see how we can work on these parts.
Elements that make character animation richerWell-crafted finishing moves and preparatory moves give the character a richer and deeper movement. Learn additional animations suitable for various situations, such as the character's energy and weight.
Photorealistic/3D background animation techniques frequently usedIn practice, animation is often inserted in photorealistic or 3D backgrounds. Approach it based on an understanding of a sense of space and learn about other techniques used in practice.

with 2D Animator Jongha Yoon
What are the prospects for 2D animation?
As the entertainment business such as games, movies, etc. continues to increase, the demand for 2D animation is also increasing. Some say that 2D will disappear in the future because of 3D animation, but many 2D animation artists are participating in 3D animation, and the sensibility that only 2D is able to produce is different from that of 3D, so it will continue to grow.
Who do you recommend this class to?
I recommend it for students majoring in animation, junior animators, and relevant artists. Because animation is, after all, an effort to mimic and represent the real-world movements, awkward or strange animations are easily recognized. In this lecture, I will help those who feel awkward about their own work, so that they can create natural and good animations with thorough intentions and calculations.
What are the main points in this class?
I focus on dealing with various characters, ranging from simple characters to detailed characters. In particular, in most animations, the main focus is a 'character'. However, just as the human anatomy details alone are vast in general drawings, there is so much to learn in character animation alone. Therefore, we focused on the characters, which became the core of the curriculum.
One final word to prospective students.
2D animation is definitely not an easy field. A robust drawing ability is required, and a sense of animation is also required. The need to learn calculations and laws of physics can be a burden at first for beginners. However, it is definitely a useful part, and the charm that only 2D animation has is different from that of other areas. 2D animation may be hard, but let us learn it together.
