December 11SecondClub Competition WIP

Here's a little something I'm working on now till Christmas break, really hope to get a good rating @ www.11SecondClub.com for it

The audio is great and I was itching to get started on animating. Thank you all who gave me ideas and feedback on this piece.

Cheers!

has that Pixar feel to it. Hope you guys enjoy it too :)
