How to Make Your Own Cartoon Dancing Video

By ROSEW ; Updated September 15, 2017

Cartoons evolved from celluloid that led to rise of animated characters, such as Mickey Mouse in film shorts to feature length motion pictures, such as "Ratatouille." Two-dimensional cartoons have a lot of movements, while three-dimensional cartoons focus on giving depth to the characters to make them appear more real. Through new animation software and computer or cellphone applications, you can make your own animated cartoon characters. You can make cartoons from real characters or you can assemble body parts from your cartoon animation software to create your own original cartoon character.

Watch dance cartoon videos available in various video sharing networks to gather ideas for your own cartoon animation. Sketch the dance movements you want the cartoon character to do. Ensure that the sketches give you a strategy for drawing your cartoon animations. Make many sketches so that you have a variety of dance movements from which to choose. Ensure that the sketches are clear and precise so you can emulate them into your animations. Scan the images into your computer to avoid constant cross-reference to the drawings.

Download animation software or visit a cartoon website to create your own cartoon animation. Use the software to model your own original cartoon characters as a show of creativity. Draw out simple cartoon poses to help you create the movements. Ensure that the poses are continuous to create reasonable movements. Create hand and feet movements to make the complete character dances. Use a single character or a series of, cartoon characters. Freeze a few poses to make the dance video more interesting. Use as many dance movements as you can to avoid repetition throughout the video.

Upload music files to your animation software if the software allows you to. Use the music to match the dance movement of the cartoon. Utilize the music options available in your animation software if there are any. Make a music mix and upload it for use if you feel individual songs or tunes may sound monotonous. Make the dance movements and the music in your cartoon videos friendly to different audiences. Avoid any vulgar movements or sounds. Keep the cartoon video as entertaining as possible. Ensure that the music and the cartoon’s dance movements are synchronized. Use a variety of music to match the movements to avoid monotony.

Put together all your cartoon slides with the different movements. Play the slides together to ensure the slides depict clear dance movements. Make any edits to the cartoon dance videos where necessary. Confirm that the timing of the video is appropriate, if it is too long, it may be boring. Preview the slides to ensure precision and accuracy. Share the cartoon dance video through a social networking site.
