    Creating a cartoon character animation

    Does anyone have experience of creating an animation ?

    I'm terrible at drawing, so, I'm looking for an easy way that I can create simple cartoons that I can insert into video clips ?

    I want to create a 'brand' cartoon like character, that I can use on all my videos.

    ie a short intro cartoon clip, to introduce the video...
    and a similar short closing-cartoon clip, to end the video...
    and possibly, very short clip, that just show the character introducing the next segment/chapter of the video.

    Thanks

    Unless you're happy with doing characters like a slime from Dragon Warrior, you're probably better off outsourcing this.

    If that's not an option I'd draw the character facing you straight on and just focus on animating the mouth, eyes, eyebrows with some occasional hand/arm gestures since most people don't talk with their arms completely still.

    Maybe try a Monty Python type of animation?
