New Year 2020 is coming, and it is the great time to make New Year cartoons and greeting cards!
It has already become a good tradition for the General-Animation studio - to congratulate our friends on the New Year with animated greeting cards. And we choose it as the next assignment of our animation challenge. The approaching 2020 will be the year of the rat or mouse according to the Chinese horoscope, so the main characters of our greeting cards will be funny rats, mice and all kind of other cute rodents. We made some funny rodents already. But we will always be happy to see your own characters. Send us your works to take part in our animation challenge and help children in Africa.
Especially for the festival we have created this cute, white-haired old man in ancient Greek robes. We will call this character Euclid in honor of the greatest enlightener of all time, Euclid of Alexandria, from whose textbooks many generations of scientists have studied the fundamentals of mathematics. Again, as in the good old days, Euclid in our cartoons will teach children the basics of mathematics and geometry. This is not a very complex model, consisting of only a dozen parts, but nevertheless our Euclid can talk, waving his arms, can walk and even run. You can download this character use it in your animation. On our website you will also find detailed instructions on how to make animation with such characters and even be able to make your own cartoon for the festival.

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.
