From the Character Sheet to the actual animation it looses complexity to make the episodes faster, but the actual character sheets are usually more detailed than the final product.

CalArts still teaches to draw pretty good, if you actually convince a CalArts graduate to draw with all his effort then he'll draw pretty good, but companies don't want this, they want the "Fast Drawing" mode so an experienced or well taught drawfag instead of usually spending 5 hours drawing a scene (at full focus on the work) they can draw around 2 pages, even more if they already got a script or director.

I don't even know why they're releasing comics monthly, with the lazy ass shit drawings they have we could be talking about something every two weeks.
There's a drawfag here in Holla Forums who drews an extremely detailed character on 2 days but can make the character sheet in 10 minutes (According to him)

And that's not even mentioning the "Fast Writting Mode". You know why comics like Hellcat and all that shit nothing ever happens, is because those faggots are pussies who are afraid of leaving one scene.
Shit, I wrote my first 67 pages in 24 (Commulative hours in around 6 days) hours and the trick is not to be afraid to face head on the action of the next scene just because the scene you're writting now feels comfy.

Honest to god with the shit they're giving us Marvel could easily be western shonen jump weekly.

My theory is that when 2D western animation stop being made into big-budgeted movies, the quailty/effort of 2D animation fell to the wayside. When was the last you saw a 2D animated film that didn't come from Europe or Japan? Winnie the Pooh?

Don't get me wrong, 3D animation is great in its own way, but 2D films also have their own charm to them. Said charm inspired great animated shows. The appeal of 2D "trickled down" to shows like Samurai Jack and the Diseny 90's cartoons. But since 2D animated films stopped becoming popular for normies in favor of 3D, the rest of animation tends followed; without some western inspiration of 2D art nor the time/effort to replicate most 3D movies, 2D shows are resoured to uninspired, anime-tier "character design". Anime can be cool, but you know what else is cool? Actual effort.

Zachary Russell

Fucking big studios killed 2D animated movies for no goddamn reason other than "muh technology". Animated movies have been shit ever since. They're all about poorly designed CG talking animals spouting dated pop culture references and fart jokes.

Jordan Sullivan

Colton Morales
Colton Morales

Now now Dubsman, it wasn't for no reason. It's easier to reuse assets between movies in a less noticeable manner and I'm sure there are many more corner cutting techniques in 3d animation as oppposed to 2d, probably easier to train people in it as well.

It just made everyone's life easier and allowed them to jew harder

Mason Collins
Mason Collins

I'd like to add that it's specifically hand drawn frame by frame animation that I noticed is starting to decay. Meanwhile, Flash animation like Wander Over Yonder and Gumball have high quality animation and evolved past Newgrounds level. And all because the majority of 2d shows are Flash animated. Newer generations don't know how to animate properly frame by frame and knowledge is dying because why pay attention to quality control when you can have Flash do the work for you. And if you don't have Flash, just use that popular Tumblr style for an automatic audience. How else do you explain why out of all the other more professional minimalist style they chose the more amateurish one. It helps that the style is carved completely by young neoliberals and not pasty old white guys.

Levi Anderson
Levi Anderson

CalArts

I blame Television during the 60s that gave people cheaply made animated cartoons and the overblown budgeting back then that never subsided while retaining quality animation. And most anime-esque shows in the West is what, outsourced to some sweatshop studio in South Korea or maybe hilariously like Marvel Anime with Madhouse, just sad that most animated shows have to rely on merchandising to survive, if not, they won't last a season or two. Now, pretty much the same as the comics industry where DC and Marvel destroyed the growth while retaining stupendous monopoly, Disney has major fault here.

Anime has the most detailed, complicated and high quality character design you'll find in any 2D animation, so I don't know what the hell you're saying here.

2D animated shows in America probably went completely down the shitter because of decades of outsourcing combined with systemic flaws that were present even before that.

Austin Lopez
Austin Lopez

Well that's obvious and inevitable. You can't do feature film-level animation when you have to put out a half hour long episode on a weekly schedule. One of the flaws was actually that they stuck to the same ideas that had been used to make cartoons in the past, which weren't ideal for television or even ideal in general.

Brody Hernandez
Brody Hernandez

The more elaborate the design, the more they stand around in static poses like a sprite game, unless it's like, 12 episodes total. Anime has its own problems.

Jace Morgan
Jace Morgan

Anime's use of detailed character designs and drawings is deliberate, and much more advantageous than the American style. It's also supported by particular animation and filmmaking techniques that allow for more efficient use of animation.

It's harder to animate with detailed designs, but you could also say to a weightlifter that it's harder to lift heavy weights and he should just lift the empty bar so he can get more reps. As if simply getting as many reps as possible is supposed to be the point.

People also exaggerate the staticness of anime while overestimating the animatedness of American TV animation.

That must be a big reason, maybe even the biggest. 3D animation can be divided into smaller tasks than 2D animation, the people doing those tasks can be replaced easier, and everything is easier to control.

People also exaggerate the staticness of anime while overestimating the animatedness of American TV animation.

This is true. Though many animes have frequent scenes where characters stand still and just talk at each other, at least they use cinemetography for it. Compare cartoons where there are less, but still some, scenes where the characters will do nothing but stand still on a static background, and they never even have a camera angle for it that isn't just a head-on view like it's an awkward stage play.

Western cartoonists don't know anything about motion, or perspective, or visuals, or fucking anything you should know before you make a fucking cartoon.

Cartoons are inherently non-cinematic, and are based on stage entertainment instead. TV shows are usually based on cartoons, so they look largely the same. But cartoons were at least able to have consistent and full animation.

I really really can't fucking stand this shitty meme anymore holy shit. Back before it started normie was just a fucking synonym for nomalfag as with norman, but then out of the fucking blue anons started calling other anons "redditors" for using normie even just once. The fuck? Ironically, the ones calling others redditors would have to frequent the site for themselves, whether it be trolling or whatnot. Anyway, another thing—some memes that aren't dead here because we don't overuse them are dead to normals because they do, but you don't go around saying "that's a stale meme" because it is on facebook. Eastern Orthodox church is considered "old fashioned" in the West but not in Cheekibreekiland, for example.

Shading is not character design, and character design has only gotten more detailed and elaborate over time. Two tone shading (which I assume you're talking about) was not the norm back then, least of all in TV anime.

If American shows were following after anime they would look a lot better than they actually do.

Logan Morris
Logan Morris

Like near every damn cartoon these days is influenced by that Jap shit.
Only superficially, in their aesthetics or with some benign references. The West's cartoons are still bastardizations of the WB or Disney animated shorts of old and the animated sitcoms created in the later half of the 20th century.

Really, action cartoons done a similar vein to BTAS or even earlier progenitors like the toy shows (He-Man, G.I. Joe, and Transformers) and earlier DC cartoons (New Adventures of Batman, Super Friends, Aquaman, etc) have more in common with Anime than recent cartoons simply due to having less simplistic staging and direction, employing techniques from film and adapting it to animation (even with the limited animation of shows by Filmation and Hanna-Barbera).

Oliver Thomas

I keep seeing in Twitter and Tumblr how there's no such thing as a CalArts monotonous style by adding in Flash cartoons to prove the point. Yeah I see, but then I realized that it makes the problem more specific. Hand drawn animation is dying in a way.

Carson Rodriguez

Shading takes time and money, yes it would be possible but corporates don't want to shell out the funds needed, especially when by law the network needs to give a show a substantial pay increase for each season made. The only show with a gradually improving art style in both lighting and shading is mlp.

Yeah, yeah, I know im just using it as an example. The show is reaching its 7th season and when compared to the first season things have improved vastly.

This is why I no longer draw, what is the point of wasting the few free hours I have after work practising drawing if some random Japanese guy effortlessly draws much better than i ever have after years of practice?

Luke Butler

Because that Japanese guy will be drawing animation frames for generic anime shonen #5326346 for the rest of his life instead of what you want to see.

Reminder that japs don't even animate that shit, for alot of anime the actual animation is done in Korea.

No compare just season one and two you can see they have lost shading in seasons two.

There is a reason why normies value compromise and dedication more than talent and pure intelligence.
What I have proposed doesn't required high level of intelligence besides reading and using a keyboard.
You are exactly saying the same shit that everyone in /loomis/ or Holla Forums hates.
You must have talent to do this
Drawing is just a question of work and do it again and again
Computer is a matter of reading the manual and do it again and again.
Every domain of work is like that it's just a question on how much you are going to invest yourself to make things work correctly.

Nice assumption
I know I shouldn't by after 20 years of experiences I can be.
I'll be short because I don't want to autism like last time.
I have genuine Avast installed

That's my whole fucking point from a few days ago.
You are putting trust in something that ask you to follow it blindly.
Blindly because no one can verify if there isn't any malicious functions technically speaking (and there is).

all my programs are portable save
Did you know that portables software version for Microsoft are infected with CIA malware ?(pic related)
I hope you don't use them.

If PS works just fine but Krita doesn't then it's Krita's problem.
You too are making an assumption.
You're lack of knowledge on software is making you choose a solution that won't fit your interest correctly.

If krita doesn't work on your pc I am persuaded that it's windows and the configuration of it.
And besides when was the last time you tested it ?

Reminder that this is at best a misconception and at worst propaganda. The vast majority of anime production work is done in Japan, and even the majority of in-betweening still seems to be done there.

"Shounen" anime makes up a minority of anime, and animators typically work on many different shows.

Lazy is not the word I would use.

Many cartoons choose not to have intuitive designs. They value graphic language over realistic geometry (or they simply can't design geometrically, as others have surmised.) The end result is over-design. These shows end up having to do more design work because they are so disconnected from reality, animators cannot make reasonable guesses on how characters should look in special shots.

I hope they can get that sequel made someday.
I hope it doesn't because there's always some monkey's paw shit when things get a sequel or a reboot/remake.

things have background artwork has improved vastly
The important things haven't, and the show went down the shitter after S1.
I'll see myself out. /pone/index.html

S1 and S2 are mostly shit they do seem like what Barneyfag spouted, a cartoon that tried to teach useless garbage like Barney and Dora the explorer, you may compare it to family guy but nu-pony is much funnier and I like to se the mare's witticisms.

It's about the implication you dipshit. Using normalfag to a normal person makes said person think you hate homosexuals whether you do or not. However a person that truly hatred of normal people or society as a whole would not give two fucks about that. Normie while meaning the same thing doesn't have that homophobic connotations. Guess which one reddit uses.

I never really got the "It's made of simple shapes!" argument. A lot of great cartoons had characters drawn using simple shapes, why do the modern cartoons in particular suck?

They're using a really pathetic strawman to defend it. Hannah Barbera cartoons from the 50s to the 70s is not only an easy target but a terrible example. The studio relied on sameness and uniformity by necessity and incidentally created an iconic style.

Every other example used there to contrast is a mix of promo materials and shows of differing caliber. Like a fugitive hiding in the crowd, the hipster designs hide next to shows like wakfu.
