My mate on Skype was laughing at the fact I was half way to doing the big four.
I considered this a challenge.
Thus, ‘modern’ big four. Sorta.
DUDE JACK AND MER THO
i think the disney company somehow forgot that you can make a character attractive AND expressiveIN 2D ANIMATION, YES. CGI IS MUCH DIFFERENT AND MUCH HARDER TO FORM DIFFERENT EXPRESSIONS AND FACES OH MY GOD
Please, don’t undermine the skills of modelers, riggers, and animators.
And two fun facts:
•The Incredibles was the first PIXAR film to feature humans to the scale that they did and I think they pulled off expressions on ALL their characters pretty damn well.
•Jessica Rabbit was hand inked, hand painted, and hand airbrushed on celluloid and manually composited into each scene, but they didn’t sacrifice how expressive she was just because animation is hard.
In which Meg grinds people’s ignorance into dust under her shoe and it’s beautiful.
Like, why does anyone even think this is a valid argument? “We did a half-ass job because doing a better job would take too much effort!” Dude, I’m pretty sure I learned in like, kindergarten that that wasn’t an acceptable fucking excuse.
