‘going off model isnt a bad thing! its just the different storyboarders styles!’
youre right, its not always a bad thing, when its done on purpose. theres a difference between going off model for comedy and expressiveness
and going off model because your crew cant be bothered to learn to draw the characters they make a living off of drawing
and you know!! steven universe used to go off model on purpose a lot!!
and it was funny and charming! the new examples of su going off model are just a result of the storyboarders being lazy. nothing more nothing less (except in the case of them slimming down characters to be more chibi/’’pleasing’’ which is just gross)
