If you're not comfortable with drawing, there are even a couple of tools that will still let you get some artwork moving around on screen. You might be surprised by what you can accomplish!

Even the most experienced animators often need help in creating smooth motion. The help in this case is a technique called onion skinning, which lets you draw each new frame of animation directly on top of images of previous frames.
