Rune Bennicke: Asterix and the Vikings Reel

I saw this reel posted by Rune a while back and I just finished watching the entire movie. I have to say that the animation is very solid (great control of volumes and fun shapes) and the movie was entertaining. Asterix is a series of French comic books created in 1959 by Rene Goscinny and illustrated by Albert Uderzo. There have been 8 animated films created so far and I hope they make a few more! You can watch the movie on Youtube in several different languages and the quality is pretty good.

any of the animators who worked on this film... I would love to show your work here!

Eric Goldberg speaks on Frog...

Hey guys, this is not a pencil test but I think it fits well into the site. Hope you like.

...the wonderful thing about Tiggers...this pencil test is a wonderful thing (Milt Kahl)

This test is the first time Pooh and Tigger meet. Some parts are a little pix-elated, but it is still great to look at. Tigger has always been one of my favorites just because he brings so much contrast to the Winnie the Pooh world. I want to say this animation is done by Milt Kahl but I will find out when I get to the office. Enjoy the test everyone!

Tarzan: Early Rough Pencil Test (Glen Keane...CONFIRMED)

I was combing through sites and found this posted by Victor Ens. I remember seeing this test years ago from another animator. The poses where Jane stretches her body out have so much energy and life. You can tell this was an early test to see where to take her character upon meeting Tarzan under unusual circumstances. I don't know who animated this but I will ask Glen next week. Thanks for posting this Victor
