Animated Feature Films by One Animator

So I know about Bill Plympton, Don Hertzfeldt, Nina Paley, and Phil Nibbelink, but are there any other people who have animated an entire feature length film all by themselves?

Makoto Shinkai animated "Voices of a Distant Star" entirely by himself. (It's 25 minutes so you might not consider it to be a "movie".)

Best answer: It took Christiane Cegavske thirteen years to make Blood Tea and Red String. It's very obviously an obsessively crafted, auteur effort, but I was unable to find anything confirming or disproving whether she did 100% of the filming herself. (If she didn't, I wouldn't be surprised if it was an extremely high percentage).

Best answer: Elliot Cowan.

(Note that for most of the examples you gave, the animators still had assistants and other people working with them.)
