Am not into 2d animation yet, am mostly 3d, but I know a thing or two about 2d animation.

First of all there are two methods I know of in 2d animation. First is the traditional frame by frame animation where you get to draw your characters and scenes frame by Frame and then merge them as a video. Softwares for this are toon boom, Adobe photoshop and Adobe Animator/flash player

N. B 24 frames make one second

Second is the modern way of 2d animation where you use the bone tool to rig your character and give them motions and movements.
Softwares for this are Moho, Adobe Animator, crazy talk animator.

Either of these methods you use, some of the the devices and skills you will be needing are

Wacom tablet (for drawing into your PC) and drawing skills.

Goodluck

Just like the first commenter said...


if you don't have wacom tablet.... you'll spend more time... there's no actual time measurement, it all depends on your speed.
