Post cool locations in cartoons and animated movies.
I was thinking more, that's barely a two-bit dying seafront promenade, not a village. the kind where it's all obviously just hanging together for one more tourist season and then who knows?? so just buy the overpriced nicknacks from the shabby souvenir place and get the hell out of there before darkness falls and all the junkies come out
This from Dofus and the one underground city that the second boufball game in Wakfu takes place in always look so comfy to me. Hell, most of the shit from Dofus and Wakfu looks comfy.
it's bizarre to me how so many people in real life live in such dangerous locales. below sea level, lodged in permafrost on stilts, on a volcanic island that constantly gets hit by tidal waves.. on a 500 foot cliff.. it's fucking nuts how dangerous that all is.
not to mention the people who have no food or no water, and have never considered just walking in a straight line til they hit something better, and refusing to leave. If you're gonna die anyway you might as well fucking try. animals fucking migrate. that's how your ancestors got there in the first place.
I live in Tijuana and we get what we call parachuters which are people from other places in Mexico (even in the US) that come in our city and make their houses anywhere they want.
A lot of them do it in the side of hills in the most inconvenient places and when something happens they cry to the government.
In Norse myth the giant Ymir's body is used to form the heavens and parts of the earth.
Imagine Loki all grumpy living in his Butt Shack while Thor is kicking back in his Bicep Villa
The noisiest part of a waterfall is at the bottom where the water impacts the rocks and itself.
The top is deceptively quiet and its one of the reasons its dangerous to kayaks and canoes.
Comfiest location in the entire movie, right here.
Ghibli has a lot of really comfy locations but I'm not sure if it's /co/ or /a/.
moderinos pls no bannerino
That doesn't happen all the time though, anon.
it's only when you make them cranky :^)
Also this train was the coolest thing and one of the reasons I love this movie.
The small planet from the last episode of Rick % Morty was awesome.
i mean.. in-universe yeah, but .. no? considering the whole movie was about a big amazing house that can do anything and make you a perfect bedroom.. that place was the best. its kitchen was the comfiest
Such a nice house. Especially at sunset or when it's cloudy and raining, so good.
I'm gonna make some hot chocolate and watch one of these
All the air temples, but this is my favorite.
I didn't watch much of Ed, Edd n Eddy, but I always thought the van was really cool.
Sucks it was only in like, 3-4 episodes.
I don't get that railway bridge.
It exits a cliff and then enters a cliff. So why even have a tunnel and not just connect the tops of the cliffs?
There isn't even a train station in town.
reminds me of that TMNT episode where they sever and airlift THE CITY OF BEIJING into the air.. and it looks like the floating island from sonic 3. the chunk of land is deeper than the city is wide. how thick do they think the earth's crust is? you could see individual buildings... it was floating so high above the earth you could see most of the planet, but was meant to still be in the atmosphere
It's a shitty picture but I had so many books and watched the show all the time, and they all made it look like this pretty awesome place
Sorry lord and master of the thread, I hope this offering is brightly colored enough for your tastes
I know it's isn't /co/, but this is probably my favorite fictional location ever.
I love this. It's so terrifyingly alien. Like something Lovecraft might have described.
Vast, lifeless, and vaguely hostile. I feel like I'm looking at the inside of some vast engine. Like this place was built with a purpose I can never understand, and any human presence here is a mistake. Incidental to the original design.
it does rather make you wonder
to me it looks like a generic videogame corridor, except scaled up huge, and that cycle track means it couldnt possibly be used for whatever a huge tunnel would otherwise be useful for (like a big giant vehicle or something)
San Fransokyo, man. Looks like such a fun place.
Haven't seen it in a while, but I remember some of the locations in Anastasia looking pretty nice
That is my favorite part of that movie.
I know this is /a/, but you should look at Nihei Tsutomu's works (Blame! Biomega, Knights of Sidonia). It is literally massive cyberpunk/futuristic empty lovecraftian landscape porn
there's something weird about building right up to the edge of an islet. There's no 'yard'.. in a way like, there's no outdoors. if you had to do something to the outside, like wash it, you'd be kinda fucked
Also give Planetes a read/watch This is the last one mods I swear pls no bully
Literally my all-time favorite movie, you have any idea how hard pic related makes my dick?
>"Look, Dipper, Dragons aren't real. They're just Imperial Propaganda the Septim dynasty started and guy;s like me perpetuate because they're cool and make money."
>"Then what burned down Helgan?"
>"Could have been any number of things! Including Soos trying Skooma, that's what happened in Morrowind."
The King and The Mockingbird has some pretty gorgeous enviroments
that village was pretty neat. the interaction between all the different creatures and the mountain... but it's weird how that map was recycled in a smaller scale as flame princess's house. Then again in Ooo shit can just happen, maybe a wizard shrank it down
as you can see, it wasn't traced or anything, it was just used as a model.. presumably they were outta ideas and just needed something to reference
They go back to that spot later, for some reason the village is gone and FP has her house there.
Oddly it seems the area has shrunk in size, because where an entire village of like ten or so buildings used to be there's now just FP's shack which takes up the entire center area there.
I guess the animators got confused.
I wonder what the mountain guy was thinking about them being down there. It would have been nice if he said hi to them or something.
I always thought that the kingdom from Tangled was extremely comfy
yep, just an inevitable side effect of when you build a city like that.
Venice is probably a prime example of "what happens when you build cities on cool ideas over practical ones".
so you reckon it's canon the same spot? I mean I guess so, and it might just be an animation error, but it makes more sense to me that it was a recycling not intended to be the same spot than an error that actually made it through. But yeah a wizard could have just shrunk it.. they should meet a guy like that sometime. maybe he shrank Tiny Manticore
>What the mountain guy thought
TIER 1 IS INAPPROPRIATE!
it was fucking lovely. castle town tier. god damn i wish i could post some /v/ locales. for a long time, when my imagination still worked, my default brain screensaver was running along milk road. now i cant concentrate or think of things anymore. goddamn harrison bergeron government or whatever.
>so you reckon it's canon the same spot?
It matches up to well to not be. They drew all the little shit (bridge, dock, that little ladder on the hill) all to match up in the new style for their backgrounds, so it's freaking impossible that was unintentional.
I think it was either an animation error, OR they shrunk it down themselves because otherwise they would be left with a lot of empty space and the scenes from Burning Low wouldn't work as intended.
But that's really weird, they could't just make a new spot for her? Why shrink a previously shown spot?
there's nothing more depressing than driving past some bustling locale to the spot where blue-collar laborers work.. just endless shipping containers and construction vehicles and cement trucks spanning MILES.. all because... i mean shit, someone has to build all of our shit and move things around. But to me it's just the antithesis of beauty, and I find more appeal in the urban than the natural realm. Just a monument to drudgery..
The babby version of that is the semi rundown suburban areas where there's nothing but hardware stores, auto repair garages, and truckshipment warehouses.
and the stupid thing is it gets so expensive to live in a lot of cool cities because they run out of space. Fuck, move these places somewhere else and build more seattle THERE instead! do these places need to be there? As it is, everything they take in and put out has to travel for what feels like an endless stretch anyhow.
this is what i'm saying. to me, the most sensible (if still odd) theory is that they simply didn't have time to design a new map (something they need to keep everything consistent for the animators) so they reused one and scaled it down so it would seem like a very different, more secluded place
fucking crazy shit too. makes you wonder how the fuck geology works
i mean i'm willing to accept that wind could shape rocks into crazy shit like all those spires, but in all the time it supposedly takes, why hasnt random chance made it NOT happen more than it happens? Everywhere else in the world erosion just flattens shit out
and anytime there's exposed strata i have to ask myself.. how the fuck did the strata form in the first place if it's this effortless and rapid for something to come along and destroy its perfection?
> mfw never seen Spirited Away
They had some random cats in it too. I like to think it's kind of just a little halfway home for stray animals sometimes.
There's also the entire miniature societies in the walls and underground from Shh! and Little Brother.
Anywhere in the World of Twelve really but if you tell me you wouldn't wanna live in Emelka i'll call you a fucking liar.
that was different, she kind of exchanged magic with howl
it's complicated but basically the book explains it better. shit like why you cant talk about your curses but they have a loophole for breaking them
jesus their kitchen was cozy though. i want that fucking bacon
>yfw you realize this isn't a natural landmark, but the result of a massive rose-shield protecting a narrow swath of land from an unfathomably huge death ray
>it's also inexplicably the only sign of civilization for miles
It was a pile of junk which was magically bound together in such a fashion that it could move without inconveniencing those inside. It could theoretically have been larger than 3 rooms and a bathroom.
I wish to live in a cabin like Ursula's from Kiki's Delivery Service. I can draw all day, every day.
He could have made it bigger like when he moved the inside to the house but it was just 3 rooms. The stairs go up to a hallway with the bathroom ahead of you and the two bedrooms on either side.
There really was something weirdly neat about this city, and not just its anachronism.. I think it was how hilly it was, with tons of winding sloping roads. Totally appropriate thematically: kiki can fly. she thinks it's a minor skill, but here in this town where getting around must be a pain in the ASS, she can just fly right over shit to deliver it quickly. Meanwhile tombo's using those roads to achieve super fast speeds on a winged bike to attempt to kludge out flight, so it's like.. the same goal but one works with it, the other circumvents it. just like how when she tries to force her magic, she can't.
you can do that now. and you get fewer spiders. probably. i don't know where you live.
amusingly, the original author was a little displeased when they were like 'so.. are there any conflicts in this story?' because it was SO slice of life it was barely a movie.. so they had to invent those bits
Both, honestly. Nothing terrible happens in the entire movie, and then suddenly whoa guys it's a fucking zeppelin disaster.
No indication that anyone died as a result of it and he came the closest of anyone on camera I thought.
I love how they even built houses on the wall.
The locations in this little short are amazing.
Any place with that many prostitutes can't be ALL that bad.
You're missing the more important question. In what universe does water choose to continue along the top of an enormous ridge instead of draining into the two giant, much lower plains on either side a long way further upstream?
I know this is /v/ but for me it will always be Balmora and other places in Morrowind.
This looks impractical. What if some big debris floats down the river and crashes the housing, along with probably inhabitants?
You talking about OP, or mine pic?
I used to have a wallscroll of pretty much that view with Pazu and Sheeta. I had it at the end of a bunk bed in college. In the morning light would shine through it like a stained glass window.
Also, there's a window in the bathroom of the Ghibli museum with that view too. Most serene piss I ever took.
>You will never go to a brothel and fuck two animal chicks at once
it's all on kisscartoon (and there are workarounds for its stupid adblock-detection though they kinda suck). i think it holds up okay, though it has a few really silly ones thrown in
I read somewhere that this was the most complex picutre to that date because they used a ton of singular drawn pages combined to this.
But i am to lazy to google it so whatever. Still looks realy good
Concept for a place that could have been in Over The Garden Wall
Being a pilot, I so desperately wish that I could live in a time and place exactly like Porco Rosso. I just love everything about that movie.
Can't just dump it in the desert to dry up?
>how could dubai afford to du that
Pic related are police cars in Dubai
>Live in cali
>Sometimes see large expanses of desert like pic related just come up out of no where from long farm land
>Want to just get out of my car one day and just walk for a few hours
Seen Wakfu in here a few times but the way they portray villages makes me want to live in rural France
as someone who lives most of the year next to the wildlands and deserts in my country, is really cash to just go out and walk for hours all alone in the middle of nowhere, to not hear a single car engine just the wind and an occasional bird and your feets on the gravel
My favorite location in a animated cartoon is the Magical Garden from The Nutcracker Prince.
>You get to live in this comfy place, but you will never get laid.
>You live in a plastic box, but will eventually get laid.
not like I was getting laid before the comfy place.
my dad tells nostalgic stories about taking his bike out to the desert and just fuckin' around. lighting cacti on fire, watching as swarms of scorpions pour out amidst the green flames..
This place looks like its going to be pretty cool. Can't wait to see more of it.
Nope. it has two. Canadian one and american one.
Also falls is singular anyhow.
I'll post more later. It has the best backgrounds.
It's a wonderful setting yet it's strange that I never questioned as a child a show where they took an art-deco aeroventure setting and populated it with Jungle Book characters. Wonder how it would have been in its original incarnation.
You should see the concept art for it... Artist is Craig Mullins.
Why couldn't it look like this? In Tekkonkinkreet they hand painted the textures for everything and put them on the 3D models so it would look 2D.
And that movie is absolutely relevant to this thread. The city is gorgeous.
Maybe not too great a place to live but it would be amazing to visit.
right? in retrospect it's both totally normal and totally bizarre. Disney loved recycling characters into other settings. Chip n' Dale was originally gonna be a Rescuers series. I forget why they didn't go with that, but it made a perverse amount of sense to just slip chip n' dale in and now they're more civilized
I can't stand overcrowded places like this. I don't mean in terms of people, I mean in the amount of stuff is within arm length of you at any given time. The whole place can lack people and I could even know this for a fact but the amount of stuff around will always give me the feeling that I am being watched.
Maybe related but such places remind me of this movie.
