Old animation pencil tests

I was looking through some of my drawings while copying a backup from an old hard drive. Around 2003 and 2004, I worked on a hand-drawn animated short film in my spare time, based on my kids. I never finished it, but I made thousands of drawings for it, most of which I shot with a camera and put together as rough tests.

Here are a few seconds of one little scene that I found while looking through the old files:

And here’s another one:

There is probably about 45 seconds of halfway finished scenes in total. My daughters β€” who recorded a couple lines of dialog for the film when they were 4 years old β€”Β are now in college! Even if I can’t finish it, I wanted to make sure I have some of the work captured on my blog.
