Gundam SEED is now old enough that the prime demographic for Gundam series of today was just being born as it was airing.

Also, that's just the character designer's fault.

Modern shows look more like right than they do left. They probably look worse since I've noticed they're also doing the no nose thing with teen guys too now.

>>12343374
>>12343382

I never watched Seed. It was around the time art styles started to look awful so I skipped them.
>>
>>12343371

I don't even like early 90's character designs. They just kept getting worse and worse.

I know it's all trends too. They just kept exaggerating the art styles of before. Eyes kept getting bigger, noses got smaller, etc. But they crossed a line where it just looked horrifyingly bad. And too different from humans for me to accept or take seriously.

This image is totally misleading. You can find moe girls in older anime, but that's not the point. There are lots of major character design differences with anime over the years. And the percentage of "cute moe girls" from very small, to a very high percentage is one of them.

Yes, original version IS better than the HD remasters, except for fights.

It's still a really, really shitty series but whatever

Be aware though that Destiny is basically the same shit. (idk i didn't watch it, just saw screenshots. Apparently the HD remasters made the designs more Destiny-like)

>cherry picking
I'm pretty sure that's the point of the image. It's not actually saying that modern anime is objectively better animation-wise, it's saying that you can really easily make an image that shows as much by taking the "worst" of the past and the "best" of the present.

It's to counter the usually more serious images that do the same, but with taking the best stills of the best past anime and the worst from the worst of the present.

No one with half a brain seriously thinks that's a fair image. It's just one that has the purpose of reverse a comparison to show how stupid making the comparison is.

There's mostly subtle stuff. Little changes here and there. The problem is that changes are made to make Kira seem more infallible and Jesus-esque, so he does nothing wrong throughout the series.

The most notable and quoted example is Nicole's death. In the remaster he throws himself on Kira's sword. It should go without saying that that's not how it actually happened.

>>12345103
Ok, well, I'm an artist for a living, so I'll give my opinion on why the left is the better picture.

The lighting, for starters. Both have white light but the source of light for the left is above and to the left, whereas the right has studio white lighting from the front (slightly above). It's very boring and you almost never want to use that lighting if you're creating a dynamic picture.

Second is line width. The left image has a standard line width. It isn't preferable but if you can pull it off, it works (I'll explain why soon). The second image has completely arbitrary line width. Usually width follows the density or the object, or reflects the angle of the light. For her chin to have such a large stroke, the top of her hair should have a very small one, but that isn't the case...

Thirdly, the texture. This applies to the line texture on the left. The use of a textured brush eliminates a lot of small errors that are easily noticed with "standard" flat brushes. This is usually why cell shaded anime looks better, since it has an appealing natural texture. The right looks plastic-like and inorganic.
>>
>>12374716
Finally the choice of colors.
The left's skin tone is more dynamic. The color of her shadows are more red than the skin on her face, whereas the right just shades with a slightly more black version of the skin. In art, it's a rule to NEVER shade with black, or transparent black. This is how a lot of younger artists color, and it looks very amateur.


The background in the left image is much darker compared to the character, and the red stands out against it. In the right image, the colors are all very visually similar to one another, in terms of light saturation. This makes the image appear very flat in comparison to the right, again, an amateur mistake.

Rather than lack of nose, Im more disturbed by how pointy the chins are getting. Like 80% of shows each season, they don't even write rounded chins any more, they are like less than 90 degree in angle.

Anon, the point of that picture is to make fun of people who think that post-90s is nothing but cute girls doing cute things anime, even though that has been around for decades and goes back to the days of Osamu Tezuka.

Anime has always been done in a way to meet deadlines, but with the advent of digital production, these deadlines can be made more intense and completed in time. Because of this, we aren't stuck in the stock footage hell for a lot of the shows in this day (discounting the mecha genre), meaning that studios can make several unique scenes with dazzling animation (see Nichijou for example).

The flattening of colors is a relatively small price to pay for a significant bump in the animation for TV series, plus lots of shows can make it work for a stylistic choice, like Tiger and Bunny.

Now this doesn't make one era objectively better. After all, we had this almost a decade ago

www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7urUYFjLUk

tl;dr Animation hasn't improved, shading has just changed to meet deadlines.
>>
>>12376338
>tl;dr Animation hasn't improved,

fuck

>>12376188
I mean, I will admit that it's a very stylized look that often gets some getting used to, but it's legit AOTS.

Sigh, no answer. This reminds me of when Lordgenome couldn't rely on his mech so he got out of it and started kicking ass on his own.

Aaand nothing shows up when I plug it into google. What the fuck. So this is just some mystery paradise anime nobody knows anything about.
>>
>>12375500
Everybody has the tendency to think older=better, because you've forgotten all of the shitty anime that you watched, and are choosing to cite the best, most memorable examples of representative of that era.

It's like retro video game fans who forget that for every Ocarina of Time or Goldeneye, there were a hundred totally unremarkable N64 games.
>>
>>12380180
True, PS1 is where all the good games are. I can list a hundred remarkable PS1 games.
