That was fantastic animation. Such great feeling of movement and interaction plus some great humour. Brilliant job and thanks for sharing the file for us to study.

Hi everybody. When Egyptianboy first posted his character, for us to look at, I asked him if I could do a video tutorial of it and he agreed. I think he did a wonderful job and it's a beautiful example of how working with Anime Studio/Moho doesn't have to produce stiff looking animations.

It's taken me a while to get one out, just because my real life keeps me busy. I'm a rookie compared to most people on this forum, but I love animation and love learning. I just like learning how to do good animations and sharing with others what I'm learning.

The experts can probably just look at the animation and know how to do everything, but for us mere mortals :) Moho is so filled with powerful functionality that it can sometimes be overwhelming to figure out what's going on, even when an animation is provided. So, to learn some more cool things for myself and share with others, I'm putting up some videos about how Egyptianboy animated Shakawa.

This one is an overview. It's a _long_ one (43 minutes). I guess I just got carried away :o But hopefully it's helpful to people, not only in regard to this character, but with respect to animating with Moho in general.


This one is shorter (11 minutes) and explains how the spinning stars were done.


I'll create more tutorials about Shakawa as I have time.

Egyptianboy I hope that the tutorials do justice to your animation and help people learn from your great example. Thanks for sharing!!!

Hi,everyone .. Hi , Strider2000
First, I appreciate your opportunity for Shakawa to be a guest on Mitch channel
Then you made this beautiful video in which you explained and analyzed most of the techniques used in the girl Shakawa, with a lesson in how to use Moho in general,
I really enjoyed your style in detailing the model in terms of construction and animation, and I see that you have made an extra effort in organizing the Moho file, and I apologize for this, most of the my Moho files have not really coordinated in terms of naming and general form , ... just messy and hasty for adding some keys after frame 0 :)
Thanks to you and everyone in Moho Forum .
Decent people still here .. keep dreaming .

Hi Egyptian boy :)
Please don't feel the need to apologize for anything. You have graciously allowed us to benefit from seeing the internals of your animation. You shouldn't feel any obligation to organize them in any way.

I want to reassure you and encourage all readers to realize that, as we create animations, there can be a lot of experimenting and adding a subtracting things as we search for ways to improve our work. As we're doing that, it is deeply engaging and, at the time, we're very aware of everything that's going on. The last thing we should be focusing on is how easy it is for someone else to follow.

It is your ability to create a beautiful, living character, with the software that we all enjoy and want to learn from. In my explanation, I'm just sharing what I learn so others can appreciate that beauty as well.

Thank you again for sharing your character and allowing me to study it and share with others!

Just added a tutorial explaining the 360 turn and masking used in Shakawa. I hope it will especially be helpful for beginners. I tried to focus on just the dress layer to make it easy for people to understand.



I'll follow-up with more tutorials as I have a chance.

Great animation!

I learned several things from those tutorials. I had never thought about the sequencer before, for example. Thanks!

This is one of the best animations I've ever seen.
