Well guys, the entries for the 2016 Secret Santa Project are in, and we’re ready to show them. This marks as the first time where both English-side and French-side users of Animation Source participate together in a project, with a total of 27 users participating!
If one of your creations does not appear in the article, please contact me with the link via PM.
Anna Andersson (Kion) made a gift for Figa (Ronno)!
With the Christmas hats on, this ensures that predator and prey can have a good time together. Who knew that Kion would enjoy a climate completely opposite to his hot environment? Ronno seems pleased to know that. Nice job, Anna!
Nakou (Sawyer) made a gift for Nick_ (Blu)!
Blu goes back to the cold winter once again as he spends Christmas with feline Sawyer with nice hot chocolate (with marshmallows) at a cozy fireplace. A very cute sketch, Nakou, love it!
Redog (Charlie) made a gift for Cyclone Blaze (Nick Wilde)!
Redog’s drawing shows us that Christmas ain’t always easy. Lucky for Charlie, Nick Wilde has arrived from Zootopia to give a helping hand in setting up the decorations while Charlie wraps gifts. A nice showing of co-operation.
ThankU (Clawhauser) made a gift for Mesh (Scrat)!
In ThankU’s hilarious submission, Scrat ends up yet again in a sticky situation. His acorn has somehow ended up in Tundratown, inside Clawhauser’s giant donut to be precise. Will the two overcome their greed and end the fight over their prized nourishment (by maybe sharing)? I honestly love the comedic feel of this one.
Icebairg (Lord Dingwall) made a gift for Shamoxx (Bolt)!
Lord Dingwall traveled long distances from Scotland to play as Santa and find a missing canine. That dog turns out to be… Bolt? How on earth did he end up so far? Was there a mistake in filming? Either way, he met the guy behind Christmas in his misfortune! Nicely done, Icebairg!
Est22 (Lumière) made gifts for Blazetail (Muhimu)!
Following The Enchanted Christmas, what can you do top a Christmas celebration that involves an evil Tim Curry pipe organ? Well, bring in a zebra of course! Be our guest, Muhimu. Lumière will ensure you’ll have an unforgettable celebration!
Now that the tree is done, it’s on to the presents! Looking good, Est22!
SnowLeopard (Princess Luna) made a gift for Matama (Toothless)!
SnowLeopard’s cute drawing brings two terrors of the night together, who decide to soften their threatening nature by celebrating Christmas in the garland. What’s inside the wrapping? Toothless seems interested, but doesn’t know how to open his. Luckily Princess Luna’s magic should fix the problem.
Stringer-Nuka (Denahi) made a gift for SnowLeopard (Zuri)!
Denahi are set to exchange gifts, but Denahi has one small problem. He can’t find any gifts for the lions. Maybe a hug might fix things…? This is cute and quiet funny Stinger-Nuka, I like it!
Matama (Mittens) made gifts for Oraki (Mulan)!
At the end of the day, the two settle into bed with Mulan reading Mittens some Christmas tales. But don’t you go bed now, we’re not done yet!
Po-le-Panda (Cri-Kee) made a gift for Blazer Wolf (Larry)!
Don’t underestimate Cir-Kee’s size. He may be small, but he’s a snowball battle professional, so be careful Larry. Very cute, Po-le-Panda!
Figa (Dusty) made gifts for Karlamon (thats me!) (Diego)!
Figa was assigned to draw my requested character Diego, and I gotta say… wow! I’m really amazed by her drawing skills, and was surprised that I ended up with two drawings! Both snow experts, the first drawing shows Diego and Dusty facing off to see who’s the fastest runner. Santa and Frosty cheer them on.
After racing, they devour into some delicious turkey. Thanks so much for your gifts to me Figa! Absolutely love them both, especially the expressions!
Troll Berserker (Bigwig) made a gift for Ronno (Roscoe)!
As species that are supposed to be natural enemies, it’s great to see that Bigwig and Roscoe are getting on well and even spending time together on Christmas. Your submission looks great Troll Berserker. Good work!
Karlamon (thats me!) (Robin Hood) made a gift for Redog (Spirit)!
And here is my gift for Redog. Robin Hood once again stole from the rich, and gave gifts to the poor. So in other words, he’s being Santa Claus! Spirit the stallion is delighted to see that Robin has a spare gift just for him. Whatever that wrapped gift is, that’s something for you to guess.
Blazer Wolf (Balto) made a gift for Icebairg (Mr. Ages)!
As one of my favourites of the submissions, what Blazer Wolf has made is something I’m very impressed with. Balto, needing help decorating the Christmas tree, asked the wise Mr. Ages to assist him with the job. The old mouse is an expert, and knows how the make the tree as beautiful as possible.
AlexKaltag92 (Kaltag) made a gift for Mymie-Chan (Bagheera)!
A nicely-made postcard by AlexKaltag92! With Kaltag and Bagheera, the arctic husky and the jungle cat sure know how to get along with each other. This is evident during during Christmas, where a good supply of gifts makes Bagheera feel welcome, despite still adapting to the cold.
OraKi (Mad Dog) made a gift for Nakou (Jewel)!
Who says a pirate can’t celebrate Christmas? Even Mad Dog one can’t resist his affection towards Dalmatian puppy Jewel. With a hot chocolate and a Christmas hat OraKi provided in this adorable drawing, it’s guaranteed it’ll be a great holiday celebration between the two.
Meemee (Tiifu) made a gift for Lilix (Jane Porter)!
Jane seems delighted with the gift she has: a small lion cub under her arm. The kitty is named Tiifu, and Jane has to bring her to Tarzan for Christmas, but is unsure how Flocon will react to this. Meemee sure has done a nice job with this one.
Mushette-98 (Merida) made a gift for Stringer-Nuka (Koslov)!
Mushette-98’s creation throws Merida into the cold. Merida laid her arms down on the table of Mr. Big who took this as a total outrage! How many times did Elinor tell you that a princess should not do that, Merida?! You will have been forewarned!
French-to-English translation by Nakou:
- - Mr. Big: “I invite a human to eat with me for Christmas, we share the panettone together, I accept you in the family, I trusted you...”
- - Koslov: “And you dare putting your weapons on the table?!”
- - Froufrou: “DAD! We said no freezing on Christmas day!!”
TheSSN20 (Rainbow Dash) made a gift for ThankU (Koda)!
Rainbow Dash decided to annoy Koda by swaying snow on him from his perch, but the teddy bear found a way to get revenge on the pegasus. This is pretty clever what TheSSN20 has made.
Mesh’ (Puka) made gifts for Mushette-98 (Stoick)!
Mesh’ has created a series of images to tell a little story. Puka had been preparing a Secret Santa drawing for Stoick with the help of Anya.
He gets scared when he see’s Stoick, but the viking appears to be impressed with the doggy’s gift.
Stoick gifts Puka a scarf in return for his kindness.
Mymie-Chan (Jim Hawkins) made a gift for Est22 (Naveen)!
Mymie-Chan has a giant sack of presents for Est22. But who can deliver such a huge amount? Well, it’s a bit too much for Jim Hawkins and Morph to handle, but good thing Naveen is here to give a helping hand. I gotta say this is a cool crossover since Treasure Planet and The Princess and The Frog are both directed by the same duo, and Mymie-Chan has done a great job executing this.
Shamoxx (Kodi) made a gift for Anna Anderson (Angel)!
For Shamoxx’s gift, Kodi and Angel spend their Christmas in a cottage on the mountains.While watching the snow fall, the two feast on on their Christmas dinner of fish to build back their strength for their journey back. A cute sketch I gotta say.
Ronno (Danielle) made a gift for Troll Berserker (Faline)!
In Ronno’s drawing, Danielle helps Faline realise his dream of being one of Santa’s reindeer, even going as far as using fairy dust so Falne can fly! This is one drawing I really like!
Cyclone Blaze (Kit Cloudkicker) made a gift for TheSSN20 (Elsa)!
With Cyclone Blaze’s entry, what a great Christmas Elsa has been providing. Thanks to her snow powers, Kit is able to have a great time snowboarding. His moves sure do impress Olaf!
Since this creation was a late submission, Figa volunteered to compensate with a drawing of Kit and Elsa. Both these submissions are pretty nice in my eyes.
Lilix (Tiana) made a gift for Meemee (Thomas O’Malley)!
Lilix has drawn Tiana preparing a special meal for Thomas O'Malleh. I’m sure O'Malleh would serve as a fine guest in the New Orleans jazz scene.
As this was a late submission, Barrow volunteered created an image as compensation. You two did good work on your creations.
Nick_ (Pascal) made a gift for AlexKaltag92 (Tod)!
My oh my Nick_, what has Tod done to Pascal? Tod prepares a a gift for Copper, but he accidentally chooses the poor chameleon to be wrapped as the gift. Oops… Rapunzel probably won’t be too happy!
Due to the delay in submitting, AlexKaltag92 was compensated by Figa with a drawing of Tod and Pascal playing together in the snow. I approve both.
Blazetail Figa (Sierra) made a gift for Pô-le-Panda (Rasputin)!
Blazetail contributed no submissions whatsoever. So Figa has took her time to compensate Pô-le-Panda with a drawing. Thanks very much for your generosity and great work Figa! Seems like Rasputin is getting a gift for the first time.
French-to-English translation by Nakou:
- - Rasputin: “No one never offered me a gift before...”
And that concludes the 2016 Secret Santa Project. A big thanks to everyone who participated and expressed their creativity with great gifts. Additionally, I would like to thank Nakou, Barrow, and Ermi for their hard work in organising the project, and assisting me with handling it on the English side, plus to Figa for going the extra mile to fill in the delayed/unsubmitted entries.
We’ll be sure to have more projects/contests on the site in the near-future, so keep your eyes open. In the meantime, stay classy Animation Sourcers!
