I’m bitter AND sticky so let’s get gooey on topic!
People just? forgot that ton of season 3 episode’s visuals are actually amazing? I mean it could be just me but this season clearly trowed a ton of budget into some scenes an episodes!
Super Watermelon Island got an amazing fluid fight scene between two giant women and it was as energetic as it sounds
Gem drill, even tho it was pretty chilly on animation, had ton of detail on Steven’s faces, I find it like such a sweet detail having in mind the episode was focusing a ton on Steven and his connection with the cluster
(this is my personal favorite)
Hit the diamond had a TON of characters on-screen at the same time, having in mind 5 of them where new characters and they had to design new clothing for 5 of them
Even though my favorite part of this episode is the bond between Amethyst and Peridot, I think Too Short To Ride was pretty consistent, I am in love every time they put little lines under the eyes of the characters because it usually helps to remark the emotion they are feeling, is personal.
Stevonnie’s back for Beach City Drift and the thing I like the most about this episode is the backgrounds and the color choices, they are AMAZING and pretty relaxing to watch on their own.
Monster reunion was pretty harsh to see for me because painful scenes (aka scenes where the character is clearly in pain) make me feel incredibly bad, but I again shot out how they draw emotions and the subtle lines that make it all even better.
More than for animation itself, I praise a lot Alone At Sea because of writing and atmosphere, and the last one really works, I felt incredibly… tense, when Jasper showed up, how she acted and the way she expressed herself, and how the colors got dark and the rain around it… just gosh
Even tho it was a pretty okay-o episode in general, I really liked Gem Hunt’s backgrounds, the whites and cold tones made a good mix with Jasper’s colors and really helped her to pop out!
I’ve talked a lot about Bismuth, so at this point everything would feel redundant, so I’ll just say that the first and last scenes have pretty good colors, one being calm pastel tones and the other reddish dark tones #BRINGHERBACK2K17
And finally, Bubbled, which has some on the most beautiful space backgrounds i’ve seen in an animation product, is the feeling of emptiness that makes the most of the episode personally, how is literally just Steven and Eyeball and Eyeball pretty much tries to kill him, in other situations you can think about something going on, but is the fact that they are in space what makes it feel… well… empty, giving more focus to the characters that contrast the most in a sea of dark cold tones and blacks!
Even though the fandom seems to have [a lot of] problems w/ it, I really enjoyed season two. [I’m so proud that the Voltron team pumped out an entire season for us! The animation was beautiful and the storyline got even better. I can’t wait for season three already]

Boy howdy, it’s rad to finally post this! This is the rowdy tune I wrote when cool pals @yugsly and @oroart asked me for something for a wild dance animation, and you should all go give it a look! A LOT of talented folks worked real hard on it and it really shows, it’s FANTASTIC!! It was also a lot of fun to do the music for!!
I’d understand people calling Frozen Fever and Olaf’s Frozen Adventure “cheap cash grabs” if they had a TV show budget, but Disney very obviously put a lot of money in them, because the animation is at least as good as the movie’s.
Not to mention Olaf’s Frozen Adventure has even better animation, because of Disney’s new rendering software.
Remember the people who complained/complains about Rose being drawn skinny (without claim AU) with good arguments?
These people had and still has the power of doing it because this character had been fat in the whole series without a massive art style changing how her body looks. (Ignoring minor details and bad people that insult, please, this post is not about talk about that)
Now you can’t do the same with Steven anymore (the character with most inconsistent art style in the whole series)
While he was pretty much presented as a fat kid without a doubt.
And then we got things like this.
Not one, not twice but several times at the point that this is the predominant style.
These ones, literally, no belly, not fat or even looks like how the used to. (The ‘new art style’ aka: chibi shrinking also affects most of the characters, making them smaller and thin, even Greg)
And the first art style which has been used to introduce the characters is now completely gone from the series since a lot of time. He’s supposed to be growing to be something like this.
But honestly at this point… Does the Crew really care about the characters design/animation quality anymore? And make the characters look like they were supposed to look?
Steven “Crewniverse Zine” #3 for SDCC 2017 ! (Part 2) (off the record)
Is their show, after all, they have the right to do anything that they want…. That’s right. So, yes, guys, they made Steven Quartz Universe, not fat canon.
There may even be explanations for this, which does not imply that it is just bad/lazy animation… (Mathematically speaking…)
And this is not only about Steven but the whole animation style that used to be way better!
AND even if I’m not fat, I’m aware of the several stereotypes that affect fat people when it comes to the media presentation,characters… I was so happy to see Steven as a nice fat character, a protagonist. I’m still happy with Greg (Ignoring his current chibi style) and I love him and I still proud that he’s nice character, and also a fat character that is not dumb, not a joke, not the “Siddle stupid friend that thinks he’s ugly and it’s there’s just as the shadow of the ’‘pretty boy” protagonist’’ or any other stupid fat trope. I thought this show was kinda about fighting stereotypes inclusion with positive symbolism to support minorities or something. If I’m honest, I’m pretty sad about its current state.
animation is just as good as the original and yet somehow even better.
Depiction of light and shadow has improved, and I think the depiction of motion
has improved as well. There’s more weight
having made makeshift Samurai armor out of scraps he apparently found lying
around is both endearing and absolutely heartbreaking for what it represents.
like the fact that the writers are taking the TV-14 rating as the natural
progression of the storytelling they employed in the original show, rather than
just the stereotypical things you associate with a TV-14 rated animated show.
It so feels like they’d have been
doing this stuff in the original show if they hadn’t been constrained by the
Y-7 rating. For instance, the river of
the damned sequence.
actually like what they did with Jack’s character. Even in the original show,
he had his moments of doubt, his moments when he wavered, and I don’t find it
all that unbelievable that after so many years of suffering, after losing
everything that would give him reason to hope, he would just be worn down into
what we see in this episode. He’s not someone who goes around doing good
because he has a passion for it, anymore. He’s someone who’s just going through
the motions, doing good because he doesn’t really have anything else left, because it’s the only distraction
he has left from his guilt and despair, and not very effective a distraction, at that. One can only hope that part of this new
show will be him steadily finding hope again.
given the special focus on Ashi, I hope we’ll see some interesting things with
her character, too.)
hello everyone, and welcome back to another session of my commentary on horrible, over-paid, idiotic movies. Some of you seemed to like my previous commentaries on animated movies, so I've decided to make another video on a movie called 'Norm of the North'. Let us get started, shall we? *presses play button*
... what is this animation?? Even my drunk arse could animate better than this shit! And animals talking? Wow, what an original idea, mate. Pretty sure your team of writers are just a bunch of toddlers drawing these animals in crayon!
Are these gerbils with him? What? How? I thought we're in the South Pole? And who in their bloody right mind would want to build a fucking condo in the Arctic?? What sort of torture is that???
*eyes twitching* is no one going to question the bear in New York City?? Where are the cops? Whoever thought that this was a bright idea should be given a dictionary on what right ideas are. Either that or a slap on the head!
*groans* why though?? Why would you make humans look like the definition of aliens?? My mother would draw them better on rocks and walls with a piece of chalk made by these animator's tears!
I'm sorry, but I can't even finish the movie. I don't give a crap about what happens in the end, because I don't give shits on this stupid polar bear! Canada's bear has more personality than this poor-excuse of an animal! If I had to rate this movie I would say that it's a number only seen through black magic, because I'm sure that's what the director used to trick people into making this. That movie was so painful to watch and I recomend toddlers to watch it because at least when they throw something at the movie screen, they won't be blammed or fined.
