alright kids gather round for a lesson from your favorite tumblr art teacher on the difference between “animation style” and “sexist character design”
I know this comparison has been done to death but thats because its a good one so let’s look at some Ghibli couples
this, my friends, is an example of an animation style. yes, all the women have pretty much the same craniofacial structure. but look at who also does: the men!!!
now, here are some examples of animation that certainly has distinct style, but is still guilty of sexist character design
how can I tell, you ask? let’s break it down.
1. all lead Disney women fit into the exact same big-eyed tiny-nosed heart-shaped craniofacial structure
2. all the lead Disney men don;t
there all done its that simple
in case this is still not making sense for some of you I have created a fun visual guide to help
thanks for reading & have a great day
