Since character animator is pretty new it's hard to find people dabbling in it.  With everything going on my employees haven't found the time to fully learn it yet.  But we would still like to use it as part of our videos. Is there any recommendations of people already creating pre-made puppets or using character animator on a regular basis?  The only one I found is GraphicMama.  Any recommendations are welcome, other than posting to a generic job site.

I'm currently in the process of Graphic Mama creating 10 puppets for me. I am very satisfied. I am animating children's songs, so I needed puppets that don't look like Barbie Dolls and aren't sexy. I looked at other sites, but quite frankly, Graphic Mama's graphics I think are far superior to any I have seen. I used a combination of their puppets to create many of "my own."

Adobe has a number of puppets, including some from Dave Okay Samurai Puppets. No advice on people - but surely this is the right forum if you want people in the industry!

Yeah,  I am aware of Okay Samurai. , but he never puts links of the people he features in his video.  So it's hard to reach out.  I swear you gotta be a detective sometimes to find decent talent. Find a good video online and then tray to backtrack to their official site.  I've done the job sites like upwork and stuff, but a majority lack the skills.

I used a combination of their puppets to create many of "my own." I used a head here, a body there, shoes another place, etc. etc. etc. I can't draw and certainly don't have the expertise they have with graphic design.

I was completely new to CA, so it has been a steep learning curve for me. And some of the issues with the puppets are not their fault, but are still the issues with the programs. I've found their English(their out of Bulgaria) to be excellent and the customer service has been wonderful. I thought their prices have been reasonable. We are still working out the kinks in some of the puppets. They have worked hard on creating effective bendable arms.

I can't say enough positive things about them.
