Use Loop To Animate The World

Illustration for article titled Use Loop To Animate The World

I'm really bad at drawing. Really really really bad. Like hand turkeys and stick figures level. But Loop might be a way to bring me up a little bit. It's an iPad app for making hand-drawn animations, but you can use it with guides like other drawings or photos for tracing. Basically there are a bunch of different ways to get going, which is what I need.


Loop has frame by frame drawing, onion skinning, frame duplication and punch of drawing tools. You can animate in red, blue, and black, and the final versions are 320px x 180px GIFs. You can share the short animations through e-mail or Tumblr, or show them off on the Loop Tumblr. Loop is $1 in the App Store and iPad only right now. Your friends will love you when you badger them with GIFs that call MS Paint to mind. [Creative Applications]




What would it take to get you and Limer to change your profile pictures? They make me incredibly hostile.
