Resource Round Up: November


I found some more (yes more…) podcasts this month.

There is one called Ask a Freelancer with the same guy that does Creative Pep Talk (Andy J. Miller). This one gives some business tips and advice.

I found one called the Creative South podcast.

There is a podcast that Dribbble does called Overtime.

John Dalton (an artist) interviews other artists and creative people on his Gently does it podcast.

Finally Design Life is a podcast about design and side projects for creative people.


I’ve looked into how animation created for games just as a side interest more than anything, and I found an Open Source program called DragonBones which looks like Spine. If you are into this sort of thing there is also one called Creature which looks pretty cool (I just like looking at the moving pictures, but I would love to learn this stuff).

I’ve been interested in animation for a while and I do actually own a copy of Anime Studio Pro 11 which I’ve only recently got around to learning more about. The first time I opened the program I got scared because it looked so alien to me, but I’ve watched online tutorials and playing around with it. Clip Paint Studio Pro and EX also let you create hand drawn animation which I’m looking into out of curiosity’s sake and I might tale advantage of their sale on until the 28th November.

Unfortunately Krita 3 which does do animation as well does not play well with my Ugee 2150 tablet, so I’m stuck with 2.9 for now.

I used to do simple pixel animation in Degas Elite when I was a kid but I never got very into it, although I did get a program called Asperite to have a go again just for fun.

Over and out.
