AND sometimes you surprise yourself after finishing your project! I've posted a few of them in my office at work and a few at home. One of the best souvenirs ever!
Published: April 4, 2013 at 1:14 PMI've done the Animation Academy 3 times. Once each in it's 3 locations (DHS, DCA and DQ). Each time the instructor told us which character we were drawing. There was never a vote or poll. The first time we drew Goofy. The second time we did Goofy. And the third time it was...Goofy.

I like it and think it's a nice "interactive" break when you want some down time from attractions.
At DCA, they don't take a poll. There's a board posted outside listing what characters will be drawn at what time:
10:00am - donald, 11:00 am - pooh, 12:00pm - mickey, etc.
I actually like this method, because I usually decided whether to do it, based on what character is being drawn.
