I'm in the middle of the Character Animation Bootcamp from School of Motion. Swimming in character animation seems to have dripped into what I'm finding on Vimeo. Good character animation is very finely tuned. Lots of nuances that are easy to miss. Hopefully I can get as good as some of these one day.

1.

Amaro and Walden's Joyride from The Line on Vimeo.
Love how raw and gritty this piece is. Check out the process breakdown: http://www.thelineanimation.com/amaroandwaldensjoyride/

2.

'Teamwork' from Gentleman Scholar on Vimeo.
Another great character piece. Much different from the previous example. Elegant and simple.

3.

Self Evidence – Janet Mock from Naoko Hara on Vimeo.
Inspiring message with nice animation. Always a winning combination.

4.

MTV ID - "Kill Boring" from CONSULADO on Vimeo.
Lots of energy. Love the paint wielding anthropomorphic rabbit. Great use of cel style animation. Crazy little piece.

5.

Cluster v2.0 - AE Script. Now Available! from Tony Pinkevich on Vimeo.
Looks like a really cool plugin. Even when using plugins you still need to be a keyframe wizard. That really shows in this piece. Some of those transitions pack a lot of punch.
