164 animators around the world collaborate to redraw the Steven Universe episode "The Answer" in all their varying styles

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDuLP-ImfgM

Why are the fans of this show so much more skilled and talented than the critics?
>>
Please tell me is a joke...

Why is Garnet's VA the worst fucking actor I have ever heard in my life?

Jesus fucking Christ.

>>94521034
This is hurt you, piece of shit?
The reality is SU is better because for the fanart, always better that the cartoon self...
>>
>>94521018
notice how the best animators only had like a single shot, while some of the shittier ones were much longer
>>
>>94521327
because the best animations take more effort for the same amount of time as lesser ones, and there was likely a time limit
>>
>>94521368
that's the point, yes

that's why shittier artstyles get picked for cartoons because they're easier to animate

it's shit

This works better when it's something that they're not copying and is mostly about the audio, like all of them working to make a music video for a song.

When watching an episode like this you're forced to compare the animation to the show, and the show's art is good enough but not the most amazing, so you're jumping between styles that are either better than it or worse, and it's too jarring. You can't appreciate the simpler styles because they don't feel good enough, and you can't appreciate the better ones because they just conflict with the simpler and the original styles.

That ridiculous jontron animator mashup? That was ok. Episodes from shows redone? Nah. Unless it's a show with such poor animation or such a simple art style that all the animators replacing it are an improvement.

Garnet and Ruby's VAs are awful and The Answer was a terrible episode that did not build up to the hype that was surrounding Ruby and Sapphire's backstory, went against Garnet's "love at first sight doesn't exist" message, and had cringey hamfisted homophobia metaphors

Really? People liked it when it aired.

>went against Garnet's "love at first sight doesn't exist" message
No it didn't, the episode didn't say anything about how long those rubies had been assigned as Sapphire's bodyguards. It could have been thousands of years they'd known each other before the events shown.

>shill

I'm getting really tired of hearing this word thrown at anyone who has the ability to enjoy things.
>>
>>94522071
good point. but it also doesn't say how long ruby and sapphire were stranded alone together between the first and second fusion instances. The montage of random things they were doing suggests it was a while though, plenty of time for them to fall in love organically, not 'at first sight'
>>
>>94522073
>thrown at anyone who has the ability to enjoy things.
I'm just using it as a catch all to promote their art off-site, this is a genuine thing that happens and I'm not sure if it could be more clear. Every time an artist does a delivery it's "do you have a tumblr?" That isn't a bad thing it's just evidence that everyone has expected artists to have a tumblr, even here, because they usually do.
>>
>>94521018
Because the fans are copying pre-existing material and splitting a fraction of the actual production between 164 different people with a generous production time and without a studio placing demands on them. It's glorified trace work and even then it's full of poor animation.
>>
>>94522190
It really should be noted that Garnet was objecting to Jamie's characterization of his infatuation. Garnet symbolizes an entire relationship, The Answer is basically showing Ruby and Sapphire's first date.

You say that like it makes it easier, getting 164 people to do something in coordination and unison and seeing it through to the end.

I don't think you could get even 20 of Steven Universe's critics on /co/ to work together in this kind of fashion.

They had to pick one of the most boring episodes which featured Estelle narrating, Garnet worked a lot better when she was stoic the voice was fine but then they went and changed things and made her emote more but it's clear she can't act.

>>94522516
You simply assign each animator a specific timeframe within the episode. We're only talking about four seconds of animation per animator.

Rewatching this I just realize that there were really not as many stakes as Garnet makes it sound like there are in the story.
>"Blue Diamond. The rebels will show up here, poof several gems, including my bodyguards and myself, and then get captured."
>"I look forward to reporting back to you when I reform on Homeworld."
>"SHE ACCEPTED HER FATE, STEVEN! SHE ACCEPTED GETTING A VERY TEMPORARY INJURY THAT WOULD NOT END HER LIFE! SHE SAW HOW HER WHOLE LIFE WAS GONNA PLAY OUT, STEVEN!"
>>
>>94522855
Rubies have been very clearly established as not being very bright. Ruby's decision to prevent Sapphire's poofing was stupid as hell, but I think it was when things escalated after that and Ruby was sentenced to breaking that things became important.
>>
>>94522855
I have a powerful suspicion that the original intention in this episode was that Sapphire was going to die, but then it was toned down and the "when I reform" line shoehorned in.

Executive meddling, in other words
>>
>>94522953
That doesn't make any sense because two seconds after Ruby is the one that's going to die. And don't say it's more serious because Sapphire accepted her fate and that was suicidal, because Ruby also says that she would totally be okay with being shattered.
>>
>>94523021
It makes perfect sense and fits with the theme of the episode.

Sapphire is okay with dying. Ruby is okay with dying. Neither is okay with the OTHER dying. Because they care about each other.

>>94522855
I think from Garnet's hindsight perspective as a free person some thousands of years later, Sapphire was ultimately accepting more than just the poofing.She'd accepted her lifetime of service to her state at the price of any free will or personal interest (or if you prefer to look at it the other way, she accepted just being a gem and doing her damn job). She says to Ruby "I wish I could see more of this planet but that's not happening." Garnet's happy after the fact that it didn't turn out that way because she's apparently much happier on Earth doing whatever the fuck she wants.

>Why are the fans of this show so much more skilled and talented than the critics?
What kind of question is this and what kind of answer were you expecting? These fans who are "so much more skilled and talented than the critics" had no deadline and had no rules to adhere to, meanwhile if these guys were at an animation studio the people back at CN probably would have called for like a billion retakes because there's a ton of issues.

You know that more often than not most American shows animated overseas have one or two animators for 11 or 22 minutes right? Keep in mind most overseas animators are glorified inbetweeners and a large portion of work is already done before it gets to Korea but still, they have to be on model and follow the timing/x-sheets charts like perfectly or they get in trouble.

Also, why is it up to the critics to make something that justifies their opinion as being valid for you? It's a nice video and all but whatever point you were trying to make is like null and void as of now.
>>
>>94523988
it is still decent. Not as good as SU at the moment though, but if you didn't like "Perfect Pear" you have no soul
>>
>>94524211
my point was only that fans of the show are more creative, talented, skilled, driven, and likely better adjusted as people based on the above, than critics of the show.

Evidence is that this video was made by fans, and although critics could also make creative skillful animations mocking it, they don't.

Really makes you think

It's okay to be autistic. But if you actually think everyone who recognizes a show is shit must be an artist, you might have the IQ of a chimp with Brain damage. The point is that organizing a bunch of anonymous users, most of whom aren't artist, just fans of the medium, to create a large project, for ultimately no reason is a waste of time. Because this isn't a collaborative art creation board, it's a discussion board.

>All things SU fans apparently have more of than you do
Apparently not if the best thing 156 of them could put together was mostly garbage.

Gems aren't supposed to care about each other. Ruby's decision to save Sapphire from even temporary harm was impulse based on caring about her, and it was what started the fate-breaking chain reaction. And before some faggot says it disproves Garnet's "no love at first sight", you don't need to love another person to want to rescue them. Normal people feel compelled to help complete strangers in peril, especially small children or elderly. I guess nobody posting on chans would understand that though.
