omg that kid totally just phased through his body i cant believe they let this go to the final cut thats so lazy. this film has a multi million dollar budget this is unacceptable how could the animators miss that
omg wow, I’m so disappointed in you Dreamworks. I thought you guys were professionals.
ya, lazy much? Honestly, I am disappoint.
you are terezi pyrope and you know a lot about your mind.
you are worth so much more than ashes
“And light shines in the darkness” the murals spoke.
The only light your eyes see is through the bottom of the glass.

Reblogging this again with an explanation. If you look at the first one, her hair goes through her arm. If you look at the second one (though you have to look a bit longer), you can see that the end of her hair goes over her shoulder instead of through her arm.
all I need now is horns 38D
two competing yet equally arresting theories. the scientific community finds itself divided
biifurcated, you miight even 2ay.
“The character design of Flynn came from the process which was called the “hot man meeting” by Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, during which they set up a meeting with all of the female employees of the studio in one room and asked them for their opinions of what made a man good looking in order to create Flynn’s character design with features such as eye color, hair color and style and body type. Video footage showed concept art and photos of various male celebrities, including Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Brad Pitt, David Beckham and Gene Kelly on the walls of the room. Director Byron Howard said they wanted to make Flynn “the most handsome, most attractive male lead Disney has ever had.”
"The hot man meeting" is now my second favorite animation design story, after the one about how Pixar animators working on the Dug team for Up had “fat dog day” where they basically went to a shelter and were like “please bring out your fattest dogs,” and then they hung out with the fattest jolliest available dogs, all day.
man would i love to be a pixar animator
her hair absolutely fazes through her arm
but hey at least she looks hot
can /you/ do any better?
I mean god damn are you people seriously going to pick at every little thing DID YOU NOT SEE HOW FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE BACKGROUND WAS? HOW WONDERFULLY ANIMATED THE ICE AND SNOW AND MAGIC WAS?
Not to mention how INCREDIBLE her voice sounds in this scene
But no, is all ruined because a cartoon had her hair phase through her arm
um hi as a professional 3d animator this is actually really really sloppy of them and everyone should be pointing this out
first and foremost all the backgrounds and particle effects are pretty and shiny and nice and all but it doesn’t mean anything if your character animation isn’t up to snuff because you know that’s kinda what people go to see the movie for
second there are dozens and dozens of levels of quality control in the disney studios - i’ve seen shit a thousand times less noticeable than this get people torn apart during dailies by their instructors or their superiors
lemme tell you something when i was in school one time i had spent two weeks working out a piece where a guy jumps out of a filing cabinet and there was a four frame segment where the tip of his foot collided with the edge of the cabinet as he turned around
my instructors spent almost a full half an hour drilling me on it in front of the entire class because i was too lazy to go back and fix it
so no these guys have literally no excuse whatsoever they have the best and brightest in the business and all the money in the world to back it there is absolutely no reason for that kind of supreme laziness
I do understand that it was lazy, and yes, they could’ve gone back to fix it, but I’m just kind of hurt by the fact that the sheer beauty of the rest of the scene needs to be thrown awa because of this little slip up. I’ve seen next to nothing online about how amazing the rest of the scene looks but this is the billionth time I’ve seen the ‘OH GOD HER HAIR GOES THROUGH HER ARM’ comment.
I’ve seen worse fuck-ups in a movie. I had to watch hoodwinked.
Like damn why do we have to be so negative why can’t we just appreciate the good things?
because the good things are apparent and self-evident to people usually
the thing about the negative is that it needs to be acknowledged in order for people to improve and the fact of the matter is disney has gotten INCREDIBLY LAZY recently
they’ve used the same base mesh for the last three movies or so for most of their characters, they’re letting basic school-level mistakes get through, and they are making the greatest mistake you can make in 3d animation: believing that by making everything shiny and throwing in particle effects that it will cover up the animation
these are like, 2002-era mistakes here and disney of all companies has literally NO excuse to make them - they’ve gotten incredibly complacent and full of themselves and they think that just because they’re disney they can get away with anything they want and because of this as a whole their quality has drastically fallen
like the movie is pretty, no doubt - the particle simulation ability and incredible lighting software and layers and layers of shaders all look stunning!
but there are A LOT of problems with that movie, and it’s not even remotely just limited to sloppiness in the QA department (cough lack of poc and female representation cough and ripping apart the original tale that it’s based on cough couch) , and these things really, really, really, really need to be addressed - otherwise you’re going to let the biggest name in animation set a horrendous example
feel free to love the movie for what it is but don’t get on people for correctly pointing out the numerous flaws in it’s material
