This collection does not have any deviations yet!





The Animation Source is here to provide animators with resources to improve their skills in animation. The group will act as a place for animators new and old to share their own tutorials and resources, tutorials and resources they find, and also as a place to share thoughts on other people's animations. The main focus of this group is animated films, but the resources provided may also help those interested in animated graphics.

Submission Guidelines and Rules

:bulletred: What do we accept in our gallery? Tutorials and How-to videos on animating and video resources for movement (for example, a real horse walking). We accept all animation tutorials, but we are not a group for graphics (No .gifs!!!).

:bulletred: We do not accept Flash gallery submissions. However, if your animation has been made using Flash, but has been exported and uploaded to dA in video format to the Film & Animation Gallery, your submission will be accepted.

:bulletred: ONLY FINISHED FILMS to the films folder.

:bulletred: Absolutely NO copyrighted audio that you don't have permission to use.

:bulletred: NO fanart/fanvid submissions or use of copyrighted characters; not even parodies. This group is for original works only.

:bulletred: When you send a submission request, MAKE SURE YOU ARE SUBMITTING TO THE CORRECT FOLDER. Each folder has a description of what goes into it. If you don't see a folder that your work fits, ask us about it!

:bulletred: If you have questions about any of the folders, check the descriptions in the folders first. If your questions still aren't answered, ask any of the admins here!

Hey guys, anyone here got any good knowledge on Crash Bandicoot as well as animation skills? 

My good friend :iconxx-daveace-xx: is working on a fan made project of Crash and we are desperate looking for animators. We've been searching for months and still found none who are interested. 

Here's the link below on more detail about the project.…

If you upload your tutorials to dA, we'll take them in the group.
cuite3000 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2015  Student Filmographer
i'm not sure how to do that how can i post a youtube vid to deviantart?
Cinestress Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2015  Professional General Artist
You don't post a youtube video to deviantART. You upload the video to dA, like you would on Youtube. You'll need film & animation submission privileges, though, which you can apply for. The link to the application is in the FAQ. FAQ #831: Why can't just anyone submit film?
