WHAT ARE REANIMATED COLLABS?

Reanimated Collabs are when group of talented artists and animators get together to re-animated an episode of a cartoon or anime. The projects are usually started by someone who has an idea for a show they want to reanimate, who then goes on to make a Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and/or Instagram page where they can assign any artist that wants to join a certain scenes to animate in their own unique style! Here are the Reanimated Collabs I've been apart of and what ones I'm currently working on!

My first Reanimate Collab and an incredibley fun one to boot! The whole episode is about King Dedede ( the main villain of the Kirby series) making a cartoon! We had to remake a cartoon within a cartoon about creating a cartoon! Honestly probably the most fun I've had in my animation career thus far, I love EVERYTHING about it! Here's the step-by-step of the scene I was tasked with reanimating!

Kirby: Right Back at Ya! ( An Anime From 2001 )
"Cartoon Buffoon"
King Dedede opens an animation studio in order to make a TV program starring Kirby.

 I really wanted to test myself on how smooth I could get the animation on this one. It was also really fun painting the big 3d-like illustration at the end of the clip!

I also had the pleasure of drawing the thumbnail for the video itself! Take a look at a sped-up version on the process below!

 To celebrate and because I loved the project so much, I created a poster full of various artists' interpretations of the characters!

Kirby’s Best Anime Episode Goes Delightfully Meta with a Massive Reanimated Collab

January 23 2019 by Jeffrey McDonell @ Gamnesia.com

The Kirby: Right Back at Ya! anime, starring the titular pink puff we all know and love, is known for its occasional bits of satire and self-referential parody. No episode made that clearer than episode 47, "Cartoon Buffoon."

Kirby Right Back at Ya! has always held this surreal place in the series, taking ideas and characters from the games while infusing plenty of its own twists on world building and design. Even if it never quite appealed to the masses the way the games have, it did have two fantastic gifts in the form of its maximum pink theme song and Dedede’s sassy sidekick snail Escargoon — and now it’s brought about a new kind of joy thanks to some absolutely dedicated fans.

Generalissimo Grunt's Interior Decorating ( A Music Video from 2016 )

An evil dictator and war general makes ghoulish house decor out of some of the most iconic characters from cartoons!

 

Head of The Collab:

Grunt Von Veizatun

 

 

 

I get to animate the Powerpuff Girls for my portion on Grunt's Reanimate project, so I knew I HAD to sneak in a Gorillaz reference given everything that went down with Powerpuff Girls villain Ace being in the band temporarily in 2018. This was me trying to nail down the styles for the characters.
