A project made in collaboration between our two classes.
3 CGAs got a classic movie to reinvent artistically. They did all character designs, modelling, rigging etcetera, and then we did all the animation in two weeks under their direction, with Alex Williams overseeing the production. It was a great experience and I think the end result looks great, as do the other trailers.
The CG artists in charge:

Here is a basic walk cycle:
Then there is a character walk, towards the enemy:
And finally a run cycle:

Our starting points were the emotion competitiveness and the random word "synaesthesia". The style was John Kricfalusi (Ren & Stimpy). The rest came completely from our own heads.
I animated most of the wolf scenes. Kenneth did most of the scenes with the little man as well as the cheerleader scene. Glenn then painted all the backgrounds by hand and did the morph scene.
If you are epileptic, be advised before viewing! Otherwise, enjoy.

I was very happy with how this exercise came out, much more so than the last one. We had a break before this week and I used that to practise a lot of drawing, to get more three-dimensionality, and I got some good critique that it's showing.

Here is the Sultan from Aladdin, trying to convince his subjects that everything is okay (when clearly it isn't). I was quite happy with this one, though I need more work on the lip-synch:

His arm is a bit funny towards the end, and I didn't manage to clean it all up. I think I made too many rough drawings without cleaning up. However, I am pleased with the overall animation, especially how he doesn't stop in his poses but moves organically.

Here is Scooby-Doo turning his head (I'm very happy with this one):
The character Jock from the Lady and the Tramp, also turning his head:
And finally Hogarth from the Iron Giant, doing a take:

If that's too hard to read, here's the same animation, only without the background.

Then we worked for two days on the following composition, that of the interior of a burning building. I chose a burning town hall. Here is the original linework:
And the finished, rendered picture:
This scene was the product of the first week. The elf's doll (his travel partner of sorts) is about to slip off his back.
These two scenes came the week after. Here, the elf is sad that the drawing he made is that of an evil toy, not a good one.
Here, the elf is showing his evil toy to Santa, thinking it's good work.
Zdenko came back the week after the autumn break and we kept on doing drawing exercises with him. The week's project was one we picked ourselves, about these clowns in a post-apocalyptic world where laughter is now a privileged thing. Our clown protagonists want to escape their oppressors and escape to the "Clown Haven". The following is the result, which I'm quite happy with. It was a fun exercise to work on. Concept development looks like fun.
This first exercise was a simple side-step:
Here he is angry, slamming a table (upon reflection, it could've used some ease-outs):
Here is our first proper walk:
Then finally, this exercise took all of week 41, a personality walk. I chose a confident attitude:
