What do you think of SU's original art and animation style? Do you think it would work in the current iteration of the show?

I'm probably one of the only people who prefers the pilot animation.
>>
>>79811272
Looks more tumblr than the final designs desu

I'd want the animation of the pilot with the show's designs sans voldemort noses and big lips
>>
>>79811272

I loved it a lot more than the simplified "CalArts" style.
>>
Pearl was hideous and Steven was kind of gross looking, but I think everyone else looked cool, especially Lars.
Beyond that the backgrounds were weird, sort of alien looking, kind of cool but more odd at the same time. Not really sure how I felt on em.
I remember the monster they fought being kind of lame.

I also really liked how Amethyst seemed to have an affinity for animals and wish that had made it into the show proper.

I think they retained some of it with her shape shifting and the whole Purple Puma thing.
>>
>>79811379
Agreed. This makes me wonder, had the show stuck with this art style, would the excellent animation have made it over? I get the feeling that the animation budget was only ramped up for the sake of pitching the pilot.
>>
>>79811272
I actually dislike the pilot. It looks ugly as fuck

I wonder why Tumblr fanartists keep redrawing frames from the show in their own art styles instead of attempting to replicate the pilot/concept art style.
>>

and it's the one they're currently doing

This.
The designs of Pearl and Steven are shit, the temple has more of a shack than the final beach house, and they seem to be right in town instead of removed.

I much prefer the surreal pastel landscapes and less busy Gem designs.
Also Garnet's hair was catastrophe.

That's what you sound like
>>
>>79811272

I kind of miss Garnet's old hair, but I guess the giant block-afro does make her more immediately distinctive.
>>
>>79813133
It looked terrible in animation. Straight, long hair like that doesn't look any good in motion.
>>
>>79813133
Honestly I don't think I'd have an issue if this Garnet made it over but the rest definitely had to be changed.
>>
The show would be more hated than now ! because really the Tumblr chara-design is more obvious on the pilot, this is too much sincerely, i prefer the actual designs even i don't like this show.
>>
>>79813200

Only if the people animating have no idea how to animate long straight hair.
>>
I prefer it vastly to the current style and most other modern cartoon styles.

Pearl and Steven needed design tweaks(perhaps closer to their current designs) but otherwise everyone looked fine. In fact, one of the proto-Pearl designs prior to the series release looked perfect for this style.
>>
>>79811272
Im sure im a minority but i actually thought it was kinda ugly compared to the final product. Especially regarding Steven and Pearl
It was more detailed though

Well the animation was directed by Genndy Tartakovsky so I'm sure since he was attaching his name to it he wanted Korea to make it look as good as possible

Plus pilots are where a crew is most focused since generally for tv shows artists work on several episodes at once

I vastly preferred the pilot art at first, but in retrospect, this was because the first screenshot we saw of the final designs was pic related. The final designs' strong points are that they look good in motion, the brighter color scheme, and the backgrounds. This screenshot didn't really show off any of that.

Also, Pearl didn't start looking good until around maybe Arcade Mania onward. This is a terrible picture of her. I think that's what turned me off most about the newer designs.
>>
I hated the original art style. It's amazing to me that people were upset when they changed it.

MLP was a fucking mass troll to get autists to admit they liked watching a little girls cartoon.

Then pic related happened to the nth degree.
>>
I really love pilot Amethyst, but nearly everything else was improved in the actual show. The pilot also had a few shots with some really nice composition and color schemes, though things like that generally wouldn't work in the long run as they'd likely come off as too busy or would contrast too heavily with scenes that don't require such detail.
>>
>>79811707
Because that's what fanartists have always done you idiot, it has nothing to do with tumblr. You guys have such a one track mind its fucking ridiculous.
>>
>>79816800
Anyone who says this with a straight face wasn't actually here when MLP hit. You don't know the horrors we witnessed.
>>
The weird atmosphere, more fluid animation, surreal coloring and less cutesy designs work really well together. It definitely doesn't fit what the show has become, though. I'd prefer the show to be in the style of the pilot, but with pilot Steven replaced by show Steven.
>>
>>79811272
Pearl looks like a dude.

Steven looks like a dwarf.
>>
PROTO-PEARL WAS BEST PEARL

as much as I liked how it looked like a heavy metal music video from the 70s in the end i'm glad they went with a different art style

the original style was interesting to look at but it wasn't appealing at all

True. One thing we have to remember about the show's development was that it was originally meant to be a half-hour, more action oriented show in the vein of Avatar or SBT. And the pilot, I think, reflects a sort of awkward transition period after they realised that they wouldn't be able to do that but before they really had a grip on what the show should be within the time and money constraints they were given.

The reason why amethyst had a whip was because she had this whole lion tamer thing going on and kept a couple of big cats to sleep on.

Cheeseburger Backpack in particular had some pretty bad designs (probably due to who was boarding it)

People watched SU initially because they could wank off to;waifu these girls from the backwater of 80s. Also, the warm and non-threatening color palette. Not the poor attempt of lel lore and especially not the action. Any cryfest or "drama" that Sugar wanted using these designs would absolutely look fucking retarded.

No way any of these ugly abominations, including Steven, would be appealing to anyone other than special snowflakes from tumblr and hipsters off /co/ . Sugar knew that and so made them more pleasing to the eyes while keeping parts of their aesthetic.

And now you have what you have today Lesbian Rocks That Look Like Girls But For All Intent and Purposes Are Really Girls: Featuring Steven Show.

That's because you want to be contrarian.

"Non-threatening color palette"?

Boring, bland, and gay(shit), light pastel-y colors, the complete opposite of Adventure Time's fucking jarring color vomit. Literally, only Gumball and We Bare Bears have a good way of coloring in these recent cartoons.

This does not follow the clear formula. Maybe we should tell the artist to go kill themselves.
