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?
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.
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.
Jesus Christmas! Holy Jesus, goddammit! Jesus jumping Christmas shit! How many fucking times are we going to have this same thread?
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.
I kind of miss Garnet's old hair, but I guess the giant block-afro does make her more immediately distinctive.
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.
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.
>more SU threads
And you people say this isn't the new mlp
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 like people who add nothing new to discussions and just complain like faggots!
Fuck it! Make a su board. It makes /co/ happy, and gets /sug/ out of /trash/.
Also the new art style I think is better.
God no. Say what you will about the current artstyle, it's a vast improvement. This just looks grody as hell.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
>Also, the warm and non-threatening color palette.
"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.
