There are a lot of tools in Anime Studio and learning all of them can be an overwhelming process. The key is to pick up certain tools that will be used most (such as the Add Point, Freehand, and Paint Bucket tools) and slowly learn the others as they become needed in your projects. Following along with this book will help too, especially when we start drawing more complicated objects and characters. Finally, keep practicing! Like anything, the more you practice, the easier things will get.
In the next chapter, we will take a look at the Layer tools as well as the different layer types and the beginning stages of mapping out our animations.
