Character Animation Cel

For painting we had to do a real animation cel like they used to do before computers, so we painted a background and the character separate from the background on a sheet of acetate. It took forever and painting and inking the cel were annoying. I had to do multiple layers on paint on the cel and had the problems of one color peeling off and me having to start over on that. The cel itself took over 5 hours! Now I see why they don't do this anymore xD But I still miss hand painted backgrounds in movies.

The cel is taped to the background. And yessss, harmonica playing cat. Because they're awesome.
