Just because it's a different style doesn't mean it's bad. Actually that kind of means it's good.

If you want fugly art look at latest Spongebob, Family Guy etc.

I don't see how this is a fair comparison, adventure time characters seldom ever stick to that same face. besides it's not like every show in 92 had Ren and Stimpy style facial expressions, it came out at the same time as Rugrats and Doug, and those shows didn't get that out there with the faces.
>>
I'd love to answer this better but I'm lit.

I remember reading an expose in an animation magazine on R&S and the environment in which it created and existed before John K. was shit canned.

Apparently John K. was very difficult to work with also very interested in pushing the envelope with the censors whenever possible. Nickelodeon hated the gross-out humor, the extreme violence of Ren toward Stimpy in the early episodes, and any references to Ren and Stimpy being homosexual that John K. and the rest of the Spumco! team loved to insert into Ren and Stimpy while it was still under their control.

Nickelodeon fired John K. from the company he helped build and the show he created, hiring R&S director Bob Camp to be showrunner. The show ran for several more seasons under the watchful eyes of executives who ensured the most marketable product. The John K. episodes were eventually brought out of syndication, so there are plenty of kids who never even got to watch the show as intended.
>>
>>79147792
Honestly the biggest thing to me is that R&S was hand drawn well most modern stuff just doesn't need to be, it should allow for easier creation of more complex facial expressions as you can modify and change assets more easily.
But the change over from hand drawn to digital takes time, I honestly don't know if AT is done Digitally or hand drawn.

Depends on the anime, while they put a lot of effort in detail they usually do a shit job on the actual animation itself, you usually get scenes where the weight of the movement is completely wrong or they're just kind of stiff. Usually the expressiveness comes from the chibi look. But again that's not true for all anime just the majority.

Old school American animation is more free form and as a result as allowed for a lot more expressive scenes that don't deal with characters causing my ears to bleed like in your favorite anime. There's a lot of humor in the exaggeration of movement. It's a shame that cartoons in general have kind of lost this trait, but every once in a while something comes around that kind of brings it back, western or eastern.

Though honestly everything is animated in Korea these days.

Art, maybe. But not animation. Japanese TV animation is notoriously shit. There's a reason why a lot of American animators and cartoonists hate anime and think it's detrimental to the art form. The animation is very basic, there are tons of stills, and the scenes that are animated decently are often drawn more basically than the rest of the show. The actually well-animated "Sakuga" bits last for maybe five seconds tops, but anime fans cum all over them because they're the closest that anime comes to classic western animation.

The only thing they do somewhat better is depicting weight and physical properties in action scenes, and that's only on some occasions.

2D animation has seen better days in the west but it would be foolish to ignore the past achievements of the great western animators. These days anime is the only way for me to get a regular fix of good animation though. Sure, there's a lot of "downtime" in the animation but the payoff is worthwhile when resources are saved up for special scenes. On the other hand, contemporary western cartoons are more "animated", but the animation is merely functional at best save for the rare outlier. There's very little impressive 2D animation in modern western cartoons, which is a shame.

It's actually closer to thirty seconds on average, and it's worth having some animation downtime if that means allowing for some great scenes later. I'd take that over consistent mediocrity with no room for animator freedom.

Well you see, expressive ugly faces from a guy who missed every deadline is better for the industry than a show that consistently delivers on time and is enjoyed by a wider audience.

Bud it's simply a different art style. The issue is when it becomes the norm to have dot eyes. I think for adventure time, the art was fitting. Obviously it wouldn't for for ren and stimpy as they are different shows.
>>79151133
Deadlines have nothing to do with this bud. More expressive doesn't always been better, and I believe the art worked well for adventure time.

J.K. want every episode of ren and stimpy to have unique and expressive faces. AT is just thumbler shit.
>>

And? Just because it's easy to replicate doesn't mean it's bad. It's all about how visually appealing something is.
>>
>>79151149
You misunderstand me. I'm criticizing people who hold up Adventure Time as the death of animation based solely on the character designs.

The gag behind Ren & Stimpy was the ugliness and everything about the humor served to show intricate close ups. Anything longer than a 5 minute gag was drawn out endlessly and no amount of Ren making goofy faces could save those low points.

Adventure Time isn't that. The characters are simplistic stick figures but there's more detail and imagination in a random background or side character than most shows.

I also wish people would stop bringing anime into the argument. You want anime quality? Then push for armies of artists paid less than minimum wage working 16 hour days.

This is why I like anime studios like GAINAX. They tend to go more over-the-top with their animation than most other anime studios (FLCL, Panty and Stocking, Gurren Lagann, Eva, etc.)

>If you can replicate the style in MS Paint in under a minute, it's bad.
I'd be tempted to say the opposite, actually. That if the visual aspects of your character design & style are so prevalent that they can be reproduced by memory, you're probably doing something right.

It's how good flag design is generally judged, isn't it? That a good flag should be easy to draw for a child.

Sure, maybe cartoons and flags shouldn't be held to the same design standards, but still. My biggest qualm about Adventure Time and the likes isn't the artstyle as much as it is the animation itself.
>>
>>79148561
Problem with those is, they generally are just two of three frames expressions and that's it. Sure, the faces themselves are funny, but I've never seen Adventure Time do a detailed transition between one expression to another, actually - which is one thing that particular sequence in OP's pic of Ren & Stimpy did wonderfully.

It's just kind of like anime - stand still, talk, move to other position, stand still in new position and talk, move to new position, stand still in new position, etc. There's a real lack of real "liveliness" in the way characters move, and how their positions shift from one to another.

Then again, budget constraints.

Edd Ed n Eddy is actually and exceptional example of good animation

That courage still is dumb though. He is just same face with his mouth widely opened showing shit on his teeth. Why is that good animation? The show wasn't bad but it was hardly exemplary animation

And although the animation was more fluid than modern times Cow and Chicken and Ren and Stempy are both ugly as hell holy shit.

Gravity falls is probably one of the worst animated shows in modern ties desu. Adventure time and Steven Universe although have a simplistic style are both actually pretty well and interestingly boarded and I'm not sure the right picture is fair.

Weeeeel you see the Ren & Stimpy faces are all from a single scene where Ren is showing a range of emotion and not just "anger".

Your pics show a range of emotion, but they're spaced out throughout an entire season, so it's very watered down compared to R&S.

People misunderstand R&S. They think LOTS OF FACS = FUNNY. But that's not the point. The point is to create expressive characters. Not random weird faces. Genuine expressions that represent the characters' complex emotional state.

By the way "lots of frames" does not equal good animation.

Here's a sequence with tons of frames, but it's jerky as all-hell in its pose-to-pose hard shifts and the general meaninglessness of the girl's facial expression (which is mostly blank) and her hand movements (which are mostly nonsense flailing)

No, because that's a myth/meme/lie. An average dialogue scene uses a mixture of different techniques (including animation) to make the scene look dynamic without having to do too much animation. The basic philosophy of anime animation is also cinematic realism, not the cartoony exaggeration usually found in American animation. So there is relatively little movement just as there would be in a live action movie.

>>79149087
>they usually do a shit job on the actual animation itself
As opposed to what? Anime has the best hand-drawn animation in the world. If that's not good enough for you then I guess you're out of options.

>Old school American animation is more free form.
American animation is actually very limited because it's designed for cartoons. That is, designed for only one kind of animation. It's also designed with a high budget in mind, and doesn't scale well.

>Though honestly everything is animated in Korea these days.
No. As I keep telling people over, over, over and over again: anime production is only partially outsourced to Korea. Don't try to project the problems of American animation onto anime.

>>79150756
>Japanese TV animation is notoriously shit.
>The animation is very basic.
Meme alert.

>There's a reason why a lot of American animators and cartoonists hate anime and think it's detrimental to the art form.
They most likely have the very narrow-minded, retrograde view that animation == cartoons. It would be a bit like if people were still making early silent movies and looking down on someone like Kubrick for being detrimental to cinema.

>The actually well-animated "Sakuga" bits last for maybe five seconds tops, but anime fans cum all over them because they're the closest that anime comes to classic western animation.

Animation is a series of drawings. You can't separate the animation from the drawings. The more detailed and high quality the drawings are, the more difficult and time-consuming they are to animate. There are also lots of little details to animation that apologists of Western/American animation are always ignoring or unaware of, like lighting, physical realism and camera work. It's not just about how smooth you can make something look.

Anime also very different goals than American animation. It's not about cartoons and musicals, it's about cinematism. It demands a completely different approach to animation production.

>>79153247
Disney was a particularly big influence after the war. During the war and the years leading up to it, few people were able to see Disney's works due to the political situation. Before that, I'm not sure how important Disney was.

Television anime became the dominant form of animation in Japan during the 70s or so, and there was no room for Disney's extravagances there.

>>79154327
It does save some effort, but it's also a stylistic choice. What you usually see when a character is shot from the side is that the jaw does move.

Either you're trolling, baiting, or genuinely believe what you typed. I'd go with the latter, in that case:

Adventure Time's artstyle is flat and banal, of course there is an artstyle known for being simple and percise, yet compare to that Adventure Time look like a hackenedeye style of that. It's not interesting. It's a cheap, quick-and-dirty, time saving method of sorts that anybody can imitate. It seeped through in shows like We Bare Bears, Steven Universe, Bravest Warriors. Although the creators of those are likely Adventure Time alumni.

Natasha Allegri CAN draw see Bee and Puppycat, however, Ward perfer this uninteresting style.

You are so unbelievably and incrediably stupid, it's great.

John K., didn't listen to anybody at Nickelodeon; he did what he wanted.

With Ren and Stimpy he deliberately held back and stalled production and went passed the deadline because it were easier for him to insert jokes that did made it pass the radar and all. The reason is, Nick didn't have time to watch the finished episodes prior they aired to tell John K. to remove that or remove this, tone down the humour, etc cetera.

And that, if you want to believe the rumours caused John K. to get fired and Ren and Stimpy canned.

You make an interesting point about anime being more cinematic. Often times good direction and editing can compensate for average animation. Like the recent Jojo anime for example, the actual animation isn't that great but the editing is fantastic and the way color changes depending on the tone of the scene gives it a distinctive visual flair.

I wonder when Disney and the like started to transition from their theatre style productions and incorporate more elements of film direction.

You guys probably know this already, but CN is not as good as they were 20 years ago - but not as bad as they were 10 years ago (aka 2006):
>Crossover bumpers in the CGI city were gone
>Shows such as Cow and Chicken, Time Squad, Looney Tunes were removed.
>Jim Samples went senile.
>CN aired the Re-animated movie.
>Saved by the Bell ran on Adult swim for April Fools'.
>Commercials with terrible characters like Fred Fred Burger and Cheese were spammed to appeal to middle schoolers.
>Inuyasha, Teen titans, Justice league unlimited, and other comfy shows ended, severing all ties with the early 00s.
>Last DBZ movie until 2014 aired on television.
>CN really pushed that Ben 10 shit, even though nobody liked it.
>Adult Swim stopped the chill Japan bumpers and replaced them with clips of their characters doing wacky/lolrandom things.

IMO Adventure Time's art style suits the show.
Ren and Stimpy relies on being gross and shocking; thus, incredibly expressive faces and exaggerated proportions make it a great, concise product.
Adventure Time tries to tackle more plot depth and comparatively realistic emotion and world building. So, having a simplistic, easy-to-swallow art style creates a nice irony. Now, I'm not saying AT is flawless. I definitely have qualms with JUST how simplistic the art style and movement can be, but I definitely wouldn't want to make it as dynamic and expressive as something like R&S.

Holy fuck no.
Kyoani embodies a problem that I have with a LOT of anime. It focuses too much on trying to make the characters conventionally attractive/cute 24/7 instead of going for exaggerated and expressive movement/faces. If they actually do any nice, detailed animation, it's usually for something 'cutesy' that the girl is doing, like twiddling her fingers or eating.

Why the transition from drawn anime/cartoon to CGI? Is it cheaper? But I always thought CGI was fucking expensive and took longer. Is it because they think it looks better?

Price fluctuates, and working digitally cuts way, way down on resources after a while.
Spending 5k on a tablet and software pays off when you don't have to worry about replenishing different pencils, markers, and other supplies. It also helps eliminate time wasted for mistakes; if you fuck up a line while inking, you don't have to trash the whole thing.
It also allows for more specialized labor. Especially with 3D. You don't necessarily need to be a phenomenal artist to work on rigging, lighting, movement, etc.

Basically, it's not always necessarily cheaper, but it allows for more labor and faster production.

This is like saying CoD Ghosts is better than LoZ Wind Waker because of the graphics. Judging a show on its looks rather than its narrative quality and emotional impact is absurd and backwards. Cow and Chicken may have had a more detailed style (although visually unappealing in my opinion), but it never hit or made an attempt to hit some of the emotional notes that Adventure Time goes for. Whether AT succeeded in hitting those marks is subjective, but the narrative quality is levels above the 90's cartoons you're lauding.

You could draw a show with stick figures and I'd enjoy it if I found the storytelling to be of a high enough quality. But you can also bore me with painstaking art if you can't tie it together with a story that is engaging. Those are two extremes, of course, but the way I watch shows, I value the story over visuals.

But then again, I read Alex Ross' Justice, so grains of salt and all that.

It's not a problem, it's a feature. Anime is not cartoonish, it's cinematic. It's not about exaggerated, Disney-style movement and expressions (those do exist, including in Kyoani's shows, but they aren't the focus).

Some Kyoani sakuga:

For budget reasons sure, and I'd even argue for an artistic sense, but it'll never be as good as stuff that tries to break away from that.

It's really amazing how you know what I enjoy better than I do. MSPA Problem Sleuth had simplistic art for such a long narrative, but I found it engaging and funny, so I enjoyed reading it. The quality of visuals in early South Park episodes wasn't near as detailed as even Adventure Time, but it was still enjoyable. To say that even I might as well go read a novel implies that simple art is more or less pointless. But South Park probably wouldn't work so well as a radio drama.

I hold the quality of the narrative above all else when I'm consuming narrative content. If the art quality is attractive, that's a plus. Adventure Time's visuals are simple, but they're still visually appealing to me. The art in Cow and Chicken and Ren and Stimpy were well detailed and clearly took more time and effort than Adventure Time's or Gravity Fall's, but neither of the former has the narrative strength of the latter. Maybe you don't like the stories in Adventure Time or Gravity Falls - that's subjective - and maybe you prefer the art to the story - that's subjective too - but from where I stand, the story comes first and the art ties with voicing at second.

Animation is a visual medium, but I still hold the storytelling as chiefly important when someone's telling a story.

This is a meme created by people who've never seen Kyoani shows, and based on rumors, guesswork and misconceptions. Moeshit isn't even a real thing, and even if something is "moeshit" how exactly is that mutually exclusive with having good animation? Kyoani is rightfully famous for their animation quality. But I guess to you "moeshit" is some satanic bogeyman that ruins literally everything.

Also we were specifically talking about Kyoani, so of course I'm going to link to clips of Kyoani shows. How exactly that's supposed to prove I don't watch all kinds of anime is a mystery to me.

Kyoani's animation isn't necessarily bad. They capture motion and movement better than most shit does, but they neglect truly dynamic and dramatic movement.
Moeshit would describe something like >>79163568 said. It focuses on constantly keeping the characters aesthetically appealing and tries to shove how CUTE the characters are down the audience's throat.

Examples:
>Prolonged sequences involving girls doing normal things in "cute" ways, with fidgety, frantic movements and expressions that involve incredibly static changes in eyebrows and mouth
>Ornately animated sequence involving a cute girl having some sort of emotional breakdown/through
>Never shows characters with unattractive or exaggerated faces; they have to be cute in every single frame

You can have attractive characters without being moeshit.
TTGL, FLCL, and LWA do a great job with this. Hell, One Punch Man does, too. The difference is that they actually put effort into making everything expressive, rather than trying to ensure that the characters remain cute and appealing to the audience.

>>79165443

If you think animation is just a series of individual drawings, that's fucking stupid.
I'm an ani student. Good animation involves having a comprehensive understanding of force, anatomy, design elements, physics, and timing, along with many other factors.
It's not just two drawings that you put together. Those drawings each contain implications that blend into the next frame and allow the audience to "predict" movement.
Reducing it to just "two pictures next to each other" is bastardizing the entire process.
Not to mention the division of labor and collaboration. And I'm not even going to bother going into 3D.

Furthermore, you don't need good art to have good animation. You can have a simple circle, and still find a way to make it dynamic and engaging with knowledge of the above.

>>79165097
To clarify a little, I do believe the art needs to fit the work it's attached to. That scene required a certain level of detail to properly tell the story in the show. But if something fits a less-detailed style, it doesn't need to be done up. I've been using Adventure Time because it's the example given in the OP, but you can look at other works besides it. What you showed wouldn't work in the style of Ren and Stimpy. Adventure Time would have a tough time seeming conceptually coherent if it were done in the style in your clip. As would Rick and Morty or Gravity Falls or Regular Show or South Park. But the important thing is that the simplicity or complexity of the art is not what makes an animated work good or bad. What is bad is if the art cannot convey the story being told.

And I watch American shows because I'm not into characters waxing poetic about their honor or duty or what-have-you. Lengthy, dramatic monologues don't do it for me. Avatar: The Last Airbender was done in an Eastern art style and had - in my opinion - a truly engaging story. And it was American. So that's why.

If you really cared so much about narrative in animation you would be watching anime instead. There's some weird cognitive dissonance going on here. And where did you get the idea that all anime is about "waxing poetic about honor or duty" or "lengthy, dramatic monologues"?

I wonder if any anon is a animator? Or they like brag about stupid Japanese shit.

>>79167518
American animation is pretty much where narrative goes to die, and while there are characters in anime "waxing poetic" or engaging in dramatic monologues, there are also many other things (and it's not like all monologues are somehow the same thing). So it makes no sense to be very concerned with narrative and then choose American shows over anime.

>>79167544
Yes, but how is that relevant? Was I talking about the quality of any of those shows? No. Is their quality relevant to the subject at hand? No. Then why bring it up?

I actually hated R&S while growing up. It was the very first show that I felt was for idiots. And it was pretty disturbing when I was kid.

I never said it's emotionally equivalent.

Masturbating to a character (or creating pornographic illustrations and manga of the character) fulfills the same role as having sex with one's girlfriend. I shouldn't have to spell this out.

First of all, a part could either mean a small part or a big part, personally I think, because of how popular it got, it pretty much set the medium for the standard of quality, not all, but other shows followed suit and made their shows have the same blandy bland art style thinking story alone could win the audience over, but even their shallow hipster characters mixed in with constant ukulele soundtracks pretty much ruined any traces of a good show. Second, I never said "a couple shows easily destroy american animation", there's way more shit that could ruin the western animation industry (or at least the quality of it) than "a couple shows". Like I said, read next time, faggot.

One would be hard-pressed to find character acting in anime that's as expressive as a top Disney animator's work, but on the other hand you won't find anything as radical as Yoshinori Kanada or Shinya Ohira's animation in western cartoons. Both approaches have their own strengths an weaknesses.

This is starting to seem like some buzzword. The objectives of Disney and anime are complete opposites, and one style doesn't have any place in the other. Disney's style has mainly weaknesses though, because it's good for little more than making Disney movies.

>>79169748
One show shouldn't have that kind of effect on the industry, which is why I said the industry has bigger problems than one show.
>>
>>79169795
The only weakness to disney's style is it takes a big budget, talented animators, and without the two, it's pretty limp. Anyway, fuck off weeaboo. We all know the schtick, good anime are better than bad western cartoons. We all know, now go away.

Well, there's also the fact that the animation industry in the USA is geared almost entirely towards children, so we don't get nearly as much funding or freedom. The latter also means that less animators are likely to go into the 2d industry.

Disney had a very specific, limited style of animation and filmmaking that would be wildly inappropriate and ineffectual for almost all anime. It was based on stage and threatre, not cinema (which is what anime is based on).

>Anyway, fuck off weeaboo.
You are using that word incorrectly.

>We all know the schtick, good anime are better than bad western cartoons.
Anime in general is superior to Western animation.

Probably because it's one of the cornerstones to making good animation.

I wouldn't say they do, but one problem with animation is that the only studios that any non-obsessed can name is Disney, Dreamworks, Pixar or Illumination
>>
>>79164080
Classic animators already had that figured out. Just look at cartoons from 40s, how well they balance detail with simplification needed for easy animating.
Now cartoons basically reversed to 20s style which was invented just for learning how animation works in the first place.
