Anime Studio 11 animation software is set for release May 27. It comes with free ready-to-animate characters. We meet them here in this blog series. Use these personalities or create a whole new voice for them.



Hello Mankles! We are so excited to welcome you to the Anime Studio Family! You must be ecstatic to be a part of Anime Studio 11! We’d love to get to know you better perhaps you can tell us a bit about yourself?


I am overjoyed! I can’t believe I was chosen, but then again I’m such a dynamic character, how could I not be? A big thank you to everyone that had a hand in my creation, Óscar Chávez, Alfredo Cáceres and Victor Paredes, you guys rock! Ok, enough of tooting my own horn, I’ll start by sharing a bit about my background.
As you know I’m a Selk'nam, we also have a few other nicknames, like Onawo or Ona people. The Selk’nam were an indigenous people from the Patagonian region of southern Argentina and Chile. We date all the back to the 19th century!! I know, I know, I look good for my age!


Wow, you really do! Can you tell me a bit more about your culture? What do you like to do for fun?!


Well, my culture is a nomadic one so we hunt and kill all of our own food. How’s that for resourceful?! The thrill of the hunt is just so exhilarating, I love it! Unfortunately, our love for the sport is what ultimately led to our demise as a culture. European settlers took over our land and started developing sheep ranches and well as it turns out, they don’t like it when you hunt their sheep. As a survivor of the Selk'nam people, it's now my duty to bring a little Selk'nam culture into the modern world!


Wow, what an incredible story! Sounds like you've got a big job to do! Well, what are you most excited about as the newest member of the Anime Studio family?


Oh man…I can’t wait to see what people create with me! The possibilities are endless! With all of these new features in Anime Studio 11, like frame by frame animation and all of the tool and brush improvements, the sky’s the limit!


It was a pleasure getting to know you Mankles. Thanks for taking the time, we know you’ll be very busy soon!
