A bunch of 2D character animations I created for a 3D explainer video we made at work recently, for a local company called Engage Mutual. You can take a look at these characters in action in the full Cinema 4D animated piece here if you've got a couple of minutes to spare → http://vimeo.com/84569324.
All the characters were drawn in Photoshop then animated in After Effects using just the Puppet Tools
I even managed to get me (beard + spade), my wife and my daughters in there too. Shh, don't tell anyone.
EDIT: I've added some screen grabs from the final video too as attachments.
