Onion Skin Options in FlipboomToon Boom's easy animation for kids
Flipboom is a really easy to use little software that is the perfect addition to your student's computer (or your own). It's really about animating doodles - and as you start to animate those doodles, you start to explore the tools that are included in this sub-$30 application.
To get the full use of the software, you'll probably want to invest in a Wacom tablet which will give you more control over your illustrations. The Wacom Bamboo or Bamboo Fun might be great starter tablets to accompany this animation software.
If you're a student, you might need a little help getting started - so I've started making a few short tutorials for a fellow teacher.
