Is anyone disappointed that Sugar decided to restyle the show after the pilot? I followed her art for awhile and really loved her style from Pug Davis and her Singles short, and when I saw the SU pilot years back and they had translated that style into animation, I was excited and thought it was going to break the mold into the Adventure Time/Regular Show style that really dominates CN right now.

But then she went ahead and stylized them all to the point where characters now make boring anime-esque faces (The worst being when Peridot made a :3 face). I was hyped, thought we would see some of Sugar's art on TV, did the industry really streamline her art that bad? I barely see her draw the way she used to on her Tumblr.

No, I prefer the more exaggerated and colorful character designs. The pilot was kind of ugly. Also Steven looks like a fat, middle-aged midget in it.

If the pilot had stuck to the original designs that she put out on her poster, then it'd look a lot better

No, not really. Besides Garnet everyone looked sickly and deformed. Toning down her grotesque style is probably the best thing she could do for the show, both in terms of animation and general design.

It's a kids show

>>77742455

The show is supposed to have storyboarders besides Sugar in it. Can you imagine everyone purposefully trying to ape her style? I love it but it's so easy to make ugly in an unappealing way instead of ugly in an appealing way.

>>77742455
Except for Pearl's design I prefer the look of the pilot. Perhaps only because I think the show proper is hella ugly.

Also I liked the more serious tone. It was obviously a Sugar product and the show is almost like a parody of that style.

I wish Sugar storyboarded every episode of SU with other people advising her on story. Not the other way around.
>>
>>77743996
You could do it in the past when the standards for storyboarders weren't lax as fuck. You go off model and you're fired. Apparently that's a bad thing now so Sugar's artstyle went down the toilet.
>>
>>77744100
Wanting to encourage everyone to incorporate some of their own style into a show is a perfectly valid philosophy.
>>
>>77742455
I would've watched it if it looked like this, so yeah.
>>
>>77744153
Personally, I prefer when a creator puts more pressure on their direction to actually make it feel like "their vision". The way SU is now, it feels like Ian JQ is the creator with Sugar as an assistant rather than the reverse.
>>
>>77744153
I think it's inappropriate in a show with a lot of drama like SU. It's distracting. SU should've been Sugar's style and nothing else.

Adventure Time accommodates the big differences in storyboarder style a little better, bu I want non-sloppy art more than muh individual expression.
>>
At first I was mad that they changed the style because the original had a lot more details and was more visually interesting. But honestly with the mood of the show we got I don't really see how the pilot designs would work for some of the episodes.
>>
>>77742455
It was simplified and streamlined to make it cheaper to produce, quicker to produce, and allows them to subsequently animate more action. It's a necessary evil.
>>
>>77742455
I prefer the redesigns. They're simpler, more colorful, and I dunno, just more pleasing to look at. To me anyway.
>>
>>77743316
I think the poster actually post dates the pilot (amethyst's clothes are closer to the final design)
>>
>>77742455
In my humble opinion:
Pilot Amethyst > Current Amethyst (I know that she is the character that changed the least, but the one I liked the most in the pilot, for me she looked perfect).
Pilot Garnet > Current Garnet (Except her gauntlets, her current Gauntlets are awesome).
Pilot Pearl = Current Pearl (I love her, but she needs a re-design, maybe a middle point).
Pilot Steven < Current Steven (Pilot Steven looked like a manchild, an old guy acting like a kid, now he looks like a kid who acts like a kid, and thats cute).
Pilot Temple < Current Temple (The current temple is awesome).
>>
The rest could have gone with only minor tweaking, but Garnet isn't Garnet without the cubefro.
>>
>>77744418
>Garnet isn't Garnet without the cubefro.
I don't know if I like the cubefro.
>>
While the original look has something charming about it, I think the very "Tartakovsky without the stupid close ups" look was a good fit.

Garnet and Amethyst looked fine in the pilot, although is weird looking at pilot Garnet now and not see that blocky afro.

Pearl looks like a dyke even though she is one but whatever, I just really like Pearl show design and Steven looks like middle aged man instead of a child.
>>
>>77742455
I think a lot of design changes made to the new style were made for the better, so it's hard to say that I'm disappointed. Garnet and Pearl have vastly superior designs in the series. That said, the pilot has some really interesting colors and it would be nice if we saw that in the actual show.
>>
>>77744493
>One of the most talented artists at CN gets the chance to make a show
>Ends up having something as uninspired as chibis in the show

Disgusting.
>>
>>77743316
I think the style in this poster would have been a great compromise. Pearl still needs her outfit from the series and her nose, and Garnet needs the cubefro. Steven having a neck in the pilot doesn't work for me.
>>
>>77742455
The redesigns are more kid-friendly, softer shapes and colors and shading. Sure, I like the pilot style better, too, but I'm not going to hate on her for making it more appealing to children, when it's a children's show, on a children's network, in a children's time slot. The current style is perfect for a children's show.
>>
>>77744567
Chibis aren't in the show, at least they haven't been yet. That GIF is from the shorts, which use a chibi art style.
>>
>>77744605
>implying the content is child-friendly
>>
I think Brianne Drouhard mentions something like this, how with Amethyst it was a pain animating hair the more volume. So that can be part of the reason for the simpler style, where artists like Lauren Zuke draw hair in a big mane that doesn't move much.
>>
>>77744628
>implying it's not
>muh lesbian space rocks undermining the sanctity of marriage

>>77744609
The shorts still count. It would be really off-putting if Adult Swim released small shorts of Rick & Morty or Venture Brothers and they were done in a chibi style unironically.
>>
>>77743079
I don't like the show, but the new designs are better
They're simpler and contrast better with each other while still being cohesive (though I don't like the cube hair, but I dislike the down hair even more)

They can go shit up Adventure Time even more if they want to do that.
>>
>>77742455
I would've liked post pilot designs with pilot art style with the pilot designs used for different characters of the same gem type (if we ever see them leave Earth that is)

Her designs, in general, aren't exactly pleasing to the eye. It was a good idea to redesign the characters and brighten up the colors.

That's true of most people.
You think about something or just exist with it for a while and you end up realizing it's not so bad and eventually you swing around to liking it.

And I seem to recall everyone being horrified of David Bowie Pearl when the pilot first aired so that didn't seem to have changed.

Just because straight hair with flat bangs is the best hair style of all time doesn't mean the cube afro isn't perfect from an animation and character design standpoint.

you mean lack of animation and character designs so stripped down there's nothing to animate?

damn I miss real flowing hair and clothes from the pilot. ANIME CAN DO IT WHY CAN'T YOU???

>>
>>77743591
>Sickly and deformes

How so?
>>
>>77742455

it is a big problem in the modern western animation that everyone 'streamlines' until it's bland crap. read some of John K's stuff about the ripping friends and you can get a good picture of whats happening. basically he would send key frames into a studio to have them animate a few scene and they would re-draw the frames he sent in to tone down the style, which was terrible for him because he was selling his over the top style. he even flew in and did a breakdown of what he wanted and how he wanted them to treat his show (the show he was paying them to animate) to try and get them on the same page as him. and they still kept streamlining and re-drawing his frames till it was all bubbly uninspired crap. there is probably an element of that with SU her frames or boards get sent along in the pipeline and someone else "pluses" it by smoothing everything out and making everything more standard and bland.

in my mind it's a too many cooks problem. everyone wants to leave a mark or justify their spot in the pipeline and change something. often just for the sake of changing something, not because it was necessary.
>>
>>77744153
I like how much freedom the boarders have in SU. It causes some awkwardness sometimes but overall makes the characters feel really expressive and not too stiff.

Damn, I wish the production I'm animating on was like that. Fucking pixar concept art wannabe geometric super stiff designs....
>>
It would cost a heck of a lot of money to keep all the detail of Rebecca's style. Lines, lines everywhere. Couldn't be worse than 1000-layers-of-shading 80's anime though.
>>
>>77742455
This is what has to happen if you want some huge multi-season cartoon. The original pilot was Sugar at her absolute best, to have a pilot to show off to producers to go "This is what I can do and this is what you want on the air", and then you have to compromise and bargain your way down to a comfortable medium that's affordable and easy to work with.

Like, of course something that detailed would be great, but money is money, and I'm glad her vision is being realized with a minimum of that usual compromise.

Plus honestly, as much as I loved the colors and Amethyst in the original, I like the new Pearl and Garnet more. Except for Pearl's nose. Works for the show, but I liked the flatnose look more.
>>
>>77742455
God no, the original art style was grody as hell. Say what you will about the show, I'd prefer the modern look over the pilot any day.
>>
>>77746968

Because anime is more about extreme line detail as opposed to stuff moving.

How the fuck do you think Yugioh managed to not change the characters' hairstyles?
>>
>>77742455
I love pilot Amethyst. I hate 1st gen show Pearl because the tutu is fucking retarded, but 2nd gen is near perfect. Though I do like the dyke hair and less extreme nose.

I know everyone complains about Garnet's cubefro, but... I like it? But I do kinda wish she was less geometric and a little more organic. Especially the extreme waist-to-hip ratio, weirds me out.
>>
>>77742455
Of course I was, but I understand why she did it. Animation is a collaborative process, and she's not the only one who's going to draw the characters. She needs to use designs that other people can play with and won't be hard to animate.
>>
>>77742455
I honestly fucking hate the pilot's artwork and designs. I'll take the current one any day, the pilot was just too damn ugly.

I agree with OP, the former designs had their unique personality and look, and I would argue that even the animation was slightly better.

However, I can also understand the reasons why they rooted for a simpler look and appeal, which comes down to budget and reliability.
>>
>>77743395
The new designs are better because they convey character and personality better. Garnet having a huge afro gives her more presence, Pearl's nose makes her seem sharper, etc.
>>
>>77746675
It fits her character better. It gives her more of a presence. It balances well with her fists and legs, making her seem taller and buffer.

>>
>>77754343
I hear this a lot when talking about SU fight scenes. What feels floaty about this? Pearl is suppose to be light on her feet. Amy feels slower than Pearl, as she should, The whip has a nice CRACK feel to it. I just kind of want to understand it better cause I would like to get into animation, too, and this feels fine to me. How is it any more floaty than Tarzan sliding down tree vines effortlessly?

>>77754292
Dude, the boards are basically the keys. The chinamen are doing in-betweens, clean-up, and color -- all the slave labor, sure -- but the Muricans are basically supervising animators. (+story and layout, don't forget)

They ARE animating entire episodes. Just not in-betweening them.

Uh, yeah. HE'S the best person to listen to. Obviously.
>>
>>77754691
He kind of is, actually. Say what you want about his grotesque art, but its detailed grotesque art. Streamlining it isn't just counter intuitive to that end, bit it also just applies this mentality that animation HAS to be simple. It negates the idea of key driven shows rather than board driven ones. It creates an uncompromising norm that limits animation.

I just love Pearl final design so much, even though at first I didn't like it but she grew in me.

Yes it does.

Nice job moving the goalposts, asshole.
>>
>>77743079
The first Pearl design is so much better it's not even remotely funny.
>>
>>77754343
Yeah they really could do better with making fight scenes feel more punchy. Dynamic camera angles and appropriately timed cuts, and little touches like slowing or quickening frame rate slightly to make impacts really look like they hurt. Shouldn't be hard for a bunch of weebs.
>>
>>77757263
OVAS have more money poured into them.
>>
>>77753879
Why isn't there any real impact or friction? Look at Pear's kick and how Amethyst's body reacted. That's poorly timed fight scene animation.
>>
>>77742455
Shitters on /co/ kept calling Pearl a gay man, so I guess that's the reason why.

Never a fan of that specific one. Would have looked far better as a brunette.
>>
>>77760338
Bait aside, those qualities are fucking disgusting on a white girl. She looks like a bushy browed inbred.
>>
>>77742455
Yes, because more interesting with all the Crystal Gems as Big Sisters instead of just Ame. Also, Lars having the hots for them all making Sadie mass jealous.
>>
>>77759689
but didn't he say he couldn't see what was wrong with the animation, not that it couldn't be any better for the budget? logically you should look at the most expensive productions to see the top quality animated fight scenes.
>>
>>77743316
Also Utz Snacks for the win.

You say that as if Japs usually aim for consistency. Have you ever heard of Sakuga?

>>77755943
What's better, and if the studio is to be believed, is that their budget isn't anything special. The studio is just following Murata's enthusiastic footsteps with OPM.

Are the comics any good?
>>
>>77755943
>Let's be fair, comparing anything to OPM's animation quality is absolutely unfair.

Not really, it doesn't have a huge budget and there's its fair share of low quality moments as well, the people working on it just know how to handle a budget and all their aninators are outsourced from different studios mainly BONES. Its quality isn't anything to gawk about in comparison to other 12 episode anime from BONES or KyoAni.

Steven looks less like a kid and more like an short man, not unlike Wario.

She looks like friggin' Micheal Jackson.

>>77756736
Nah, man. That's the mods trying too hard.
>>
>>77765918
What do you mean?
>>
Am I the only one who looks at these designs and sees form following function?

Pilot designs were not Mom designs. They were more explicitly androgynous, and the Gems overall are most definitely female in personality.

How long till Tumblr finds out that he drew Amethyst skinny and they barrage 3lamestudio with messages telling him to kill himself
>>
>>77743679
Fuck off you moron, I hate this stupid argument, all arts and series can be criticized.
>>
>>77746675

I read a while ago from Valve's design team that they made their Team Fortress 2 characters they way they are so you can easily recognize them by their outline. I think the same applies in this case. You see the square hair (hey that rhymes) and you know it's Garnet. You see a short wavy haired silhouette, and you know it's Amethyst. You see a bird, and you know it's Pearl.
>>
>>77760354

Probably because the blonde hair sharply contrasts with the dark colors on her outfit. If you lighten her outfit's pallet, it might look better in this case.
>>
>>77752553
the simpler the designs are for the overseas animators to grasp the less likely they'll be bogged down with retakes.
>>
>>77767630
It's a basic principle of cartoon character design but they went a little overboard with muh distinct silhouettes. Garnet is fucking freakish.
>>
>>77767701

What exactly do you dislike about Garnet's design? I'm curious.
>>
>>77759659

I think it's completely fine and works for pearl, looks damned cool too, but yes, that kick has no impact. Tha needed to be fized.

Not surprising, considering that this particular piece was made by someone from Powerhouse Animation.
>>
>>77742455
Nope , the new style grew on me.
'm disappointed in the awful S2 , that is just "puting and agenda " the season" and no more fun or adventures/weekly villains".
Fuck Sugar for that S1-->S2 change was AT S3->S4/5/6 all over again.
Just fuck Sugar the snowflake.
>>
>>77756736
this thread is great because /sug/ shut is in trash.
I would love to have /sug/ on /trash/ so people on /co/ maybe can give this show a chance.
>>
>>77768140
They all have freakish proportions. Pretty much every Gem has a few "tells" about being non-human.
>>
>>77768731
You are a retarded nigger If you think that S2 is bad.
Literally show me one moment where they try to push an agenda in S2.
Steven cross-dressing was meant for laughs so don't even think of posting that.

God it's been two years and there are still SU pilot design threads. Guess that means there will still be Toei Ladybug threads two years from now.
