Thank you so much for half a million subscribers. I hope this video strikes a balance between helpful and entertaining. I encourage everyone with the faintest interest in animation to try out this process, it's really fun and unique. It's okay to steal my style outright, imitation is flattery and the greatest jumping off point for finding your own style. Links in the description to everything you'll need! Much love

Dude, awesome video, I am a 'couch content creator' and as I'm sure you know whether it's github for programming or vids like these or how to Garageband vids or how to Blender pixel art... I just love how most of us creators help each other. So many people are talented and are lacking either resources or time, as you said, everyone should be allowed to make art. Everyone! You shouldn't be limited by the fact you don't have a production team to whip around or a sleazeball Money Lord to back you. Love the sentiment here! Saving this, and if I ever have a video or video game project and end up rotoscoping something, totally throwing you credit. Much love Joel!

So, do you have to completely redraw the character every frame that you choose for the expressions? Is there some quick method around having to do that?

This man is like a Euclid class Reality warper SCP. Just call him SCP-053-JH, the Animated Reality Bender. Anyone near him has a 80% chance of being sucked into one of his videos, and they are the even more socially awkward character in the scene. Anyone transported in never comes back the same, they act like the characters around them depending on the stage around them; and they stay socially awkward and have dialogues with themselves while trying to fight rats thinking the rats have weapons.

i was expecting a goody self aware video but instead but thoroughly educated in the most down to earth, best way possible - i’ll share this with my communications technology teacher and perhaps we can do something with this info in the future for our school! much love you’ll have 1M by the end of the year at the most, congratulations:^)

Thanks for this informative video, Joel. I have another question: You call yourself “Joel Haver”, but how many Joels are you currently in possession of exactly? Does your reserve of Joels impact your videos at all? Where are you hiding them? Thanks.

Nah, art is more than a final product. Art is more than a story or an idea or a message. Art is also about ability, practice, capability, technique. But this is still great work, and I think it's art. But don't put down hard work, practiced technique, and superior ability.
