New year, time to start a new thread as the old stopped bumping a while ago. Here is a neat gator dude from... Winx Club of all places. I just checked an episode at random because I have never seen that show and UGH the human designs are ugly with their Barbie stick figure looks, huge foreheads and slanted yet anime-style weird eyes. It's Italian anime, I guess... part of it CGI, part of it cell-shaded, but croc dude seems to be traditional animation.
>>228818 >People don’t realize the time and energy that go into- No. Stop that. If the end result is bad, it doesn't matter. A lot of time and energy goes into most of what you see these days. That's not an excuse to just like something. And that crap about having to look real when we get this uncanny junk.
>>245399 Disney television series, not a Disney movie. As long as the writing is good, passable animation is fine in my books. And plus, it's a preview. I don't know the workflow of western cartoons but maybe it's just the earliest complete parts they could show. Or maybe they aren't in the groove of making it. Only time can tell.
>>245399 >BUT........ I seen independent animation, sometimes made FOR FREE, look BETTER than that. I completely agree, but it's not a good comparison to make.
Independent hobbyist animation is a completely different ballgame, especially in this decade. They're often much shorter, don't require an entire series to be made, and lack deadlines. Plus, professional televised animation tends to lack the passion of hobbyist animation. A passionate artist will go back and fix mistakes, for art's sake. A professional animator often has deadlines up their ass, and a preset, economical end result they are told to make. Artistic flair will be inconsistent with the rest of the animation, and we can't have that!

>>245413 Is reminds me of some anon a few years ago who was explaining how Nicole was born into Russian aristocracy. yes she has a British VA, but the thought was that she and Gumball are Russian Blue cats.
>>244863 Considering they held the past rights to one version of TMNT and the current rights to Sonic, you could say they did. ;) But yeah, Mad House was one of the last of the old-time funnybooks and they did the occasional furry story or gag. I was looking for scans of a couple from an old Mad House digest I've got and found that instead. Here's another oddity:
>>244546 Well, if I recall correctly (and if it is indeed the origin of this stupidity), that incident as Cho told it, was Rucka abusing his position due the terms of his contract giving him absolute power over the book's content, not simply the publisher mandating policy. Of course, considering that now it is clear Cho is a bit of an asshat, I think it's quite possible that his version leaves a LOT of details on what caused the issue.
I think one important part to this is to remember Cho had to get dicked around a lot since he started in newspaper comics, not regular comics. The folks that he had to deal with there were a lot less free with what he could do and were wont to just trash anything they didn't like without having to pay for his work.
Now that totally doesn't excuse him, but it makes sense to watch his reaction considering what his editors used to do to his work.
Mostly digging The Loud House, but with people liking shows like Harvey Beaks and Miraculous Ladybug, The Jungle Movie for Hey Arnold finally being made, and those Nick Animation Podcasts episodes, I thought it'd be appropriate.
>>244453 >it's up to you >gegege im gonna cheat and lie and....
This is ultimately what bothers the most about Chick and people like him. It's disguised mysanthropy, no faith at all in the human condition. For these guys, it is impossible that a person may develop morals on his own, that stuff like "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" wouldn't be something that logically come up during normal interaction with others.
>>244270 It got good by Season2. Most of Season1 was pretty mediocre, with Terrorsaur being a poor man's Starscream, and some truly atrocious episodes to boot (like the bean incident). Even later on in season 3 there were some stinkers like those stupid cavemen children... brrr. I rate BW high on the list, but I feel Animated has a much better rewatch value.
Previously on Spider-Man, Jameson rented the Iron Man Mk. I amour re-purposed into a robot as a means to reveal Spider-Man's identity on live TV, but failing that, decided to re-purpose the robot into a suit of armour for his own use, but then the armour malfunctioned almost leading to Jameson's death until he was saved at the last moment by Iron Man and Robertson. Also I guess Spider-Man did something, too?
