It's an useful tool to create those simple and funny creatures formed by sticks which can form a full story with no complications. Draw your characters, define the articulation points and give them life. The articulation points will save you lots of minutes.
Animations must be created scene by scene, there?s no other way to do it. Draw one scene after another and then, once it is finished press play and admire your own creation.
And if you want, add some backgrounds and new characters and create your own animations.
