    Wow! Very impressive work ladies! I’d LOVE to see the process for coloring an entire cel. Just to better understand how long it takes, and to watch the intricacies of it all. I’d ask about maybe a time-lapse video, but I don’t know if that would really show the nuances as well. If a vid isn’t possible, then about how much time does it take to do one cel of Mrs. Brisby and her daughter?
    Anyway, at the rate of the video for this update, it looks like it takes not just a lot of concentration and skill, but an ton of time too! But just with what seemingly “small amounts” of cel painting were in the vid, the work that does get done by the end of the vid, looks really amazing! ^_^
    Thanks so much for sharing this bit of behind-the-scenes awesomeness! ^_^

    The Tube caps aren’t individually numbered are they? I’m just imagining some people taking that writing on the cap as if it were a serial number some day. At least for those who keep the packaging.

    Lets see. Got the Wallpapers, DLed the video tutorials, had to use my Mom’s Drop Box. My computer is a bit dated. The Great Owl poster looks amazing and I will take a pic with it to post to Twitter and Facebook as soon as I can get it into a frame with acid free backing.

    Thank you to the Cell painters. I know their copy of each of the Cells I ordered will be amazing. Wish they could sign them too.

      Mine is either 18 or 81. Numbers on caps are funny that way.

      Video tutorials? I don’t recall getting an e-mail yet with vid tutorials. Do you mean the ones for hand and eyes? I wasn’t aware they were finished, if those area the ones you mean. (A friend who also donated to the campaign and myself are both really interested in those 2 tutorial vids).
      I’ve gotten the Animation Manual, Toontalk Magazines, Dragon’s Lair Graphic Novel, Wallpapers, and the 2 E-books. As far as downloadable perks, those are the ones I’ve received e-mails for so far.
      If they’re doing all the perks by individual e-mails, they may not have gotten to my friend or me yet. I’m sure she would’ve told me if she’d gotten that e-mail. Since that was what she wanted to see and as high as she could donate. I was able to go a bit higher and I’m really interested in seeing them too.

      Thanks in advance! ^_^

    Even though I don’t entirely understand what’s happening, I love getting a peek into the old ink and paint process! There really is something about painted cels that’s different from digital ink and paint.

    Hello. First of all, congratulations!
    I’ve got a question: the personal “thank-you” postcards are going to have Don & Gary autographs only? Or are they going to be personalised with our names?
    Thank you!

    Another great update. That video was really fascinating! I actually picked up some tips from watching it.

    Awesome! Really loving the look of that castle!
    The video was cool. I’ve always loved seeing the process of hand-made art.

    So great! Seeing the process really fascinates me. Quick question regarding these physical perks. Will the autographed prints, posters, and sketches be delivered with a COA (Certificate Of Authenticity)? I received my hand drawn Dirk sketch and Secret of Nimh poster but they didn’t come with a COA. Just making sure I’m not missing something. Let us know.

    Wow, such painstaking attention to detail! I don’t know if i could ever be that patient, which is why I have so much respect for animators like you.

  9. So much work goes into this! It’s so labour-intensive, and the majority of people in an animated production rarely get the recognition and credit they deserve. Especially since traditional animation/ink-and-paint is a bit of a dying artform, I’m glad that the internet now exists so that videos like this can be shared with animation fans the world over! 🙂
