James Baxter — Moses from Prince of Egypt [x]
THE ANIMATION IN THIS MOVIE IS SO PERF UGH
What you mean to say is that James Baxter is perfect <3 The man is an animation god/legend. FOR OBVIOUS REASONS. In fact, the man is especially renown for his work on “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”
That’s why in an episode of Adventure Time, there is an incredibly well animated horse who rolls around on his ball and says his name “Jaaaaaaaaames Baxter!” and brings cheer to everyone around him. Finn and Jake become jealous of his ability to make people smile and try to mimic him, find their own way of spreading joy and then finally accept that sometimes you can’t be as good as some other people at some things. It was a commentary by Pendleton Ward about how he always wanted to be a legend just like James, but in the end you have to do you own thing and achieve greatness in your own way.
James Baxter voiced the horse himself, too.
No wonder that horse was so well animated
Seriously, I have a hard time believing some of Baxter’s work isn’t rotoscoped, he has such an amazing talent to draw and animate in three dimensions it boggles the mind.

Watch this liquid boil and freeze at the same time! It’s not magic, these folks just dropped the pressure and temperature to the perfect place to hit the substance’s triple point, that magical nexus on the phase diagram where solid, liquid, and vapor coexist.
The liquid above is almost certainly not pure water (those crystals look a little funny), but here’s water’s phase diagram, complete with triple point and its various ice phases. Yes, even that one.
