Anime inspired animations by Paul Johnson (Star Wars/DR WHO)

Well we have enough gloom and doom lately to fill a stadium, so how about if I post some work to inspire:
there is this crazy amazing animator called Paul Johnson and I wanted to share some of his work done in anime style:

First link still isn't working for me.

Someone threw a music bed on it -

Really like how he captured the old school "wobble". Takes me back to Macross.

The Doctor Who anime looked OK most of the time, but some parts had questionable parallax, wrong depth, and suffered a lot during pans.

Many parts look like they were done in an updated "Old Captain America cartoon" style with still frames being pulled at certain timing to create illusion of volume.

But it is remarkable work.

He's very specifically emulating 80's anime, which wasn't always 100% right and had those issues. I think it's totally spot-on and "on purpose".

I like to think there was a lot of careful attention to controlled tone, volume, and depth in anime from 1984:

Sample from "Macross: Do You Remember Love?"

BUT.. I understand what you're talking about... Many of the methods he is using are also in use in the Macross clip. They're just applied more carefully I think in the Macross show so can't agree he's "spot-on" but Method-Accurate - yes.

I've been following his work for some time now- just brilliant work! Such attention to detail in the designs and in the animation- and also Daleks with a workaround for stairs

Very enjoyable. Shame the audio couldn't of been cleaned up a little, but still.
Nice Doctor choice too - he comes up well in anime style. I laughed when he said ' for goodness sake put something warm on' to the young lady

I think it makes a good case for a SW anime show. The perfect combo, given how tech and anime go together so well. How cool would it be to see lightsaber fights done in that Batman in Shanghai ultra dynamic hand drawn motion blur style?

As one of those people who considers Jon Pertwee to be his Doctor, I think this is bloody brilliant. Been watching this developing for a couple of years. Love the Delgado/Ainsley Master partnership and the Davison era cyberman stylings. Brilliant.

I also can't agree that it is spot on perfect. The guy is good, no doubt, but looking over all the art I could find from his, he is still learning, and improving very fast. I think his NEXT original thing will be the one to watch. Unfortunately he is too busy with his day job these days.
