Sit down, kids.
Let me tell you why this:
is such a huge load of BS
FIRST OF ALL
The above pictures range from 1923-1999
the pictures below are from like 2011-2016
so um, yeah, of course 70 years worth of cartoons has more diversity than 5 years. It’s freaking 70 years of changing styles.
that’s like comparing the clothing styles of 2016 to the clothing styles of all of time and saying “w0w look ev3rytHing loOks the SaMe now smh!!1!”
*clears throat* Let’s break this down.
I’ve compiled a couple examples of TV cartoons through the decades.
and the good ol’ 1990s:
The point is styles change. And styles in the same time period tend to look really the same. Art goes through phases. Just look at fashion and architecture styles.
The point is that cartoons aren’t bad because they look similar. It’s just a visual trend. In ten years, cartoons will all look the same in a totally different way.
TLDR: “CalArts-ifying” is not a real thing. Stop.
so sorry for the huge long post
