I've animated a Calvin and Hobbes strip, using Bill Watterson's drawings as keyframes.
Here's the original:
This is awesome. The animation really captures the original comic. Even the sounds sound exactly like I'd imagine them if they were animated, apart from maybe the very loud footsteps when he just walks across the carpet. Otherwise it's perfect, everything is in traditional Calvin & Hobbes style. Nice work!
... kind of cute... and nice graphic... it's fun to watch the characters moving yet more exciting when you see them on papers though...
So much kick ass. :D Ultimately I'm glad Watterson never sold out and let a cartoon be made of his creation, even if it could have been this great.
I do agree with the guy below about how this is probably mostly evaluated by fondness of these characters. But the quality really is good, and the fact that they remain voiceless is definitely in good taste.
Smooth animation made this a pleasant, albeit short, piece to watch. However I feel like this was a rather dull strip to animate, lacking any of the humour, imagination, or poignant moments that made Calvin and Hobbes the comic strip that so many love.
Granted, this might simply be a tribute to the strip. Fine, but all I'm say is that if that boy had been a random little boy who had been tackled by a random animal, I guarantee that people would be evaluating this short based on its own merits instead of just being giddy over seeing Calvin and Hobbes animated.
A CARD BATTLE of magnanimous proportions!
