I agree 100% about badcharacterdesigns. The best way for new animators to find a good style is experiment and sometimes it doesn't always work out, but they learn from that and bullying them for it is only gonna make them feel bad. And besides heavily stylized characters can look amazing, and become hugely popular. It's an art form and there isn't a right or wrong. Except for penguins with tits, I draw the line at penguins with tits lol.
whats funny to me is that a lot of popular characters dont really have that “good” of a design. theres nothing special about, say, frisk from undertale (if anything theyre kinda boring), but u wont see them on that blog bc the mod knows that showing anything thats popular wont be accepted. but theyll still use reasons to rag on character designs that can be easily applied to popular characters
like mike wazowski isnt anything special design wise either u KNOW that if he wasnt wildly popular when that blog was created, he’d be on there. nowadays, no one would shit on him tho. minions arent that special either but half the fucking world loves em
it also annoys me that they mostly shit on stuff made primarily for kids and like, yea of course, kids deserve well animated shows but honestly a kid isnt gonna be like “oh wow these relative proportions are so bad!!!”, theyll probably just get sad that someones calling a character from a movie they liked shitty lmfao
so yeah, a blog thats made to tell adults about how bad the designs in kids movies are just kinda…go rag on adult animation movies and stop picking easy targets hah
