2D Character Animation in After Effects

This is a fantastic collection of tutorials by Ryan Boyle - an overview of all the techniques used in 2D character animation in After Effects, including character design and setup, walk cycle animation, expressions, lip sync, background, lights and camera.

He does some very nice Illustration and motion graphics work, which you can find on his website, Sketchy Pictures.
