You can dislike the writing of TTG all you want but to deny that it has a very strong visual style is just lying to yourself

Powerpuff girls were circles; no fingers, no hands, etc.

Bloo was a half oval.


Take off the nostalgia goggles.

A monkey making pictures with his shit is way better visuals.

Have standards really fallen so low as to put TTG as having a "strong visual style"?
>>
>>79812938
Yeah like graphic design simple and loud
>>
>>79812908
And the west had far superior designs before it was influenced by anime. What's your point?
>>
>>79813460
niceme.me

The west was never superior.
>>
>>79812908

Anime was influenced by the west

And it surpassed it.

>>79813409
The animation is the exact same as the Mickey Mouse shorts going up these days
>>
>>79813727

And that was 80 years ago.

These "artists" have skipped observational/gesture drawing. They learn from Christopher Hart, not Loomis. They never learned how the body works. That is why a game like MGS which came out in 1998 could make people look like people and run them through animation.Yoji Shinkawa is an artist; Skylar Page is a hack.

"Well that's a video game."

Yeah, and it looked better on a toaster than half the shows today.

TeenTitans had awful designs, you must be under 25

Teen Titans didn't even have typical action cartoon design, it had french/canadian tier poser anime design

They are still good designs but TTG is just something that needs to be touched and worked by more people, while saving more money.

Adventure Time and similar simple designs started a new trend that hasn't saves as much money and time as the original Hanna-Barbera age of limited animation. Do you want a still image with a moving background and waggling legs back?

>non-cartoony designs can't be funny

>>>79814573
People always use this excuse but in an ironic fashion the simpler a show's design is, the worse the animation is.

This isn't the golden age when you had true OG niggas drawing several frames of a character every day and had to be sure you didn't make mistakes and that everything is smooth and proportionate, today it's CalArts faggots who send their shit off to Koreans who barely make the characters move
>>
I don't think the character design is anywhere near as bad as the "humor".
>>
>>79814897
Certain designs work for certain types of humor. TTG's brand of humor would not work with the 2003 art style.

Are you seriously saying you'd like TTG if all they did was use the 2003 art style?

You're my motherfucking nigga.

>>79815048

Last Airbender was one of the funniest shows I've seen. Yes it had heart and action, but I've never laughed louder or harder at an animated show for children. The designs were dope.

>>79815165

Better than TTG

>>79814892

I'm a retard. Can you explain how moving characters on a computer that are drawn shitty is cheaper than putting a little more effort into it. If people learned to draw and didn't ship their shit overseas, would that be cheaper?
>>
>>79812397
>Why are character designs such crap nowadays?

Because Canadians suck at drawing anime.
>>
>>79815048
>TTG's brand of humor would not work with the 2003 art style.
Explain.

>Are you seriously saying you'd like TTG if all they did was use the 2003 art style?
I'd rather they use the New Teen Titans style from the DC Nation shorts but yes I'd like TTG a little more if it had better designs and animation
>>
>>79815447
Are you seriously saying Last Airbender's brand of humor is equivalent to TTG?

Not better or worse, but as in the same kind of physical and verbal humor?
>>
>>79814897
>The golden age.
You mean when toons were made as theatrical shorts instead of TV series? Remember that even Hanna-Barbara cheaped out when they went from Tom and Jerry to Yogi Bear
>>
>>79815627
TTG is alot more active and surreal with its physical humor and alot more cynical with both physical and verbal humor. It's a very different beast from the humor that even the New Titans shorts did.

>but yes I'd like TTG a little more if it had better designs and animation

Is like a little more meaning you'd still hate it while appreciating the different art direction, or would you seriously do a 180 on the show just because it caters to your nostalgia better? If the former, whatever but if the latter, you're superficial as fuck.
>>
>>79815681
When I say golden age I'm obviously talking about the Golden Age of Animation which doesn't include tv.

>Hanna-Barbara cheaped out when they went from Tom and Jerry to Yogi Bear
They saved animation by doing that. Giving those cartoonists jobs when people lost interest in theatrical cartoons.

Plus an early HB cartoon is more visually stimulating than TTG or other flash cartoons.
>>
>>79817316
And that golden age will never come back because animation is made for TV first with TV budgets.

>Plus an early HB cartoon is more visually stimulating than TTG or other flash cartoons.

You like art style way too damn much. HB toons were fucking Family Guy tier in terms of animation, but worse.
>>
>>79812397
I remember back when regular teen titans was airing people would not stop trashing it. Calling it anime garbage and other names you can probably guess.

And now it's being held up on a pedestal

Simple isn't bad. The designs are fine. You may not like the style, but the designs are fine.
>>
>>79812944
Both seem equally distinct and diverse.

not sure why you're comparing the batman to whatever bottom is supposed to be...
