Vector Design For Smooth Flexibility

While Moho is known for animation, it has a wide range of design tools that can be useful for creating artwork. Vectors are nice due to their flexibility with animation and inability to degrade in quality when blowing up the design.

Shade and Highlight For Extra Depth

Learn how to apply layers of shades and highlights that can be easily rigged. They are also created on different layers so you can control the visbility depending on project needs.

Clean Up Layers with Masking

Learn how to effectively mask complex areas such as the eye lids, mouth, shades and highlights.

Multiple Exercise Files Included

Breakdown the process by accessing over 30 project files that covers every step of the design process. Sketch and references also included!
