    Finding my Animation style

    Hi, i used to be a member back in 2012, however due to 'life issues' had to take a loooongg break from pretty much everything-animation. Now that i've gotten some free time, i've gotten interest into animating, specifically stick-figure animation.

    However, with a 5 year break, i feel like a complete newbie, barely retaining memory of what to do.

    My question is simple, I used to use line-tool to animate, but now have a drawing tablet, line tool feels easier, but drawing freehand feels more rewarding. I also have to state, i have an incredibly shaky hand, making drawing actually pretty difficult.

    Should i A. Learn to draw it free-hand using brush/pencil tools. B. Use line tool, as drawing may take too much time to get used to. C. try both until i find which ones right (most of you will probably say this, which i have been doing for the past week, but i'm still 'new' so they both look crap rn)

    Ty in advance.

    Well, that makes the two of us. Even I started getting interested in animating, especially stick figures. I started using Adobe Flash Professional CS6 because Adobe Animate CC is kinda hard as fuck to use.

    when it comes to animating, i prefer the look of the line tool. I use my tablet for painting.

    In my opinion, line tool should be used for the sticks themselves, (since it looks cleaner and it's easy to come back and edit) and anytime you need it in backgrounds/weapons, however, for effects, you'll want to use your tablet since those fill mostly have to be drawn.
