Buey de Piraña

A funny animated short "Buey de Piraña" by Leyenda Studio from Chile. I really liked the character design, the retro style and cartoony animation!

All the characters in the short was rigged by Francisco Tejo who has been studying advance character setup from Puppeteer Lounge for well over a year by now! Francisco is talented, hard working and a diligent artist. He is also multi-talented as he did shading and rendering for the short as well. I wish him the very best :)
