A long time ago there was an animation test to get into Don Bluth's studio. I believe it consisted of a little girl in her bedroom sitting on the floor playing with building blocks. I have the test somewhere and when I find it I'll post a drawing or two from it. In the mean time here is my vague recollection of what she looked like.
One thing, and a very important thing, about Don Bluth's designs was that they were very structured. They were designed to be animated by large groups of artists and maintained model.
Structure and model have never been a strength of mine but it has always been fun at the roughing out stage.

Hello all and sorry for not posting for a while. Have a bit of Bloggers block. But be assured it is only temporary. In the mean time check out a couple of these sites for some inspiration. Both courtesy of Cartoon Brew. The first is Amid's new retro inspired blog called Cartoon Modern, a precursor to his eagerly anticipated book on designers from days gone by.
The second is from a french animator/designer Yoshi Tamura. Beautiful illustrations, he has just started his own blog and promises to have great things to come.
