Take a look at the Paperless Animation blog
Paperless Animation blog Simply titled, "A collection of animation clips created using the paperless animation application TVP Animation," this blog, created by former Disney animation artist David T. Nethery, gathers several pieces of animation whose common link is that they were all made using the TVPaint technology. Demonstrating the natural versatility of the program to create, you'll be able to find an example for each category, such as stroke-by-stroke drawing, rough and clean line test animation, stop-motion animation, complete scenes and even some complete works.
