This Scene from Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke was Drawn by Hand and Took Almost Two Years to Finish

Fans of Japanese anime classic Princess Mononoke would recognize the scene at the beginning of the movie, where a monster called Tatarigami appeared.

The animation is remarkably fluid – so much so that most people would assume it’s CG (or computer generated). But @hitasuraeiga explained:

“The leading scene in Princess Mononoke where Tatarigami appears isn’t CG; it’s drawn by hand. The part where the snakes move sluggishly was so difficult that–even though the scene is only a couple of minutes long–it took one year and seven months to finish! It apparently took a total of 5,300 drawings. One of the artists explained, ‘It gradually got so confusing to draw that it ended up bogging us down.’”
