New Year is coming, and we are ready for its arrival! I made a model of the symbol of 2019 - a nice cute little pig. We will use this little pig in the coming year to create our animation lessons, as well as for new cartoons about our adventures in Africa. You have already seen this character in our fishing scene. It is great for creating beautiful New Year greeting cards.
You can download the model of this cute piglet in PSD format. Do not forget that we also have a model of Piglet - a friend of Winnie the Pooh there. It also can be used to create New Year cards for the Year of the Pig. Make your merry Christmas cartoons, send it to us, and we will show it on our channel. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Let me introduce you to Urunji Siblings - M'nyamata and M'tsikana. These are our new characters which we will use to tell about Urunji Child-Care Trust, Malawi and Africa in general. They are very similar to each other, so I think they are brother and sister. By the way, in the language of Cheva M'nyamata and M'tsikana mean simply "boy" and "girl". I will use these characters in my animation lessons, and I want to encourage my students to make cartoons for Urunji too. I think it will be great - to learn animation and at the same time participate in such a wonderful charitable project.

And here is a cute little dog that will be our symbol of 2018. We made this doggie for our New Year's animation competition.
Download the archive "Danny Dog 2018.rar". Open the project "Danny Animette.aep" and you will find in it the already assembled model of the yellow dog with preprogrammed automatic animation of walking cycle and speech. In addition, you will find in the archive a beautiful New Year's background and Christmas trees. You can use it to create funny New Year cartoons and animated greeting cards.
You can also create your own dogs. Send your work to us for the contest and do not forget that the most active participants will receive little incentive prizes.
Happy New Year! Looking forward to your works!
Just look at this little hare (maybe it's even a rabbit, I myself did not really decided yet). Is not he a cutie? And I even added a small fluffy tail as requested by Mar. Very soon you will see this nice character in our cartoons (In fact, we have already made a small scene in our cartoon where the Yellow Dog meets a hare), and for now you can download it (in the attached archive you will find a fully finished model), make your own cartoon and show it to us and all your friends.
