Ok this is the project I worked on while attending the Gobelins Summer School. We had to choose between three characters (Winnie the Poo, Lupin and Harley Quinn) and animate them doing a specific action, which in this case was to put a letter in a mail box. In the first phase we needed to study our character by drawing it over and over and OVER again. I have to admit it was the most relaxing and less tedious step of the project.
Le Royaume is one of my favorite shorts I’ve seen, ever. The animation and style are beautiful and fun. I find it absolutely inspiring. I watch it whenever I need a boost when I’m creating, drawing, or animating.
It was animated by some of the students from the French animation school called GOBELINS, l'école de l'image. Many of the animated works that come out of GOBELINS are amazing. Check them out on youtube.
