Animation Cell painting

This was done in the Cartooning class during summer. Its a animation cell painting. What "cell painting" ? Well, before computer is being used alot in animation, animators used to transfer all their character drawing to a transparent paper and then flipped over and painted on the other side with acrylics. It will go on top of the background layer, which is painted in watercolour. Its alot of work, in one second there are at least 12 drawings!!
I remember my student film is all painted this way and its almost 2 minutes long, alot of sleepless night. I wouldn't want to do it again.
