    I love it when people talk about things they have no experience with and haven't happened yet.

    Ain't nothing about a modern toolset that prevents rubber hose style animation lol. It'll just be faster to produce, which also puts paid to your 'lower quality' claims.

    Art directors are also a thing, and I'm sure they'll be working very closely with the comp guys to make it look authentic.

    This I can agree with heh.

    Right here on good ol' planet Earth!
    The Cuphead Show? Really, I wonder how it will look compared to Merrie Melodies or Silly symphonies. Will they be able to pull off the classic film effect in HD, or will it look like a mockery of such? Since King is involved, it might work, but only time will tell.

    From IGN's interview of Chad Moldenhauer:
    `"The current goal is to stay as far away from [computer-assisted] puppeteer animation as possible" "The idea will still be that every frame is hand-drawn" but probably not on paper. "It's going to be hand-drawn but digitally. 'Tradigital'"

    Cuphead? Of all videogames out there, you decide to make an animated series of CUPHEAD??

    The same, high quality, 24 frame-per-second animation video-game that won multiple awards and popularity for the quality of its animation? THAT CUPHEAD??

    This is a train wreck waiting to happen. The budget and time-frame required to make something like this is astronomical.

    Let's watch Netflix animate this crap in flash quality, and use 3D scenes when the busy parts of the show come in...

    I'm sorry Netflix. I saw what you did with plenty of other animated shows. You can keep this. Either make this something incredible or don't bother tarnishing it.

    A video game that looks like an anime is getting...an anim-

    Ah, damnit. I was thinking of an anime for Guilty Gear, especially given the recent ones and their usage essentially getting ArcSys a lot more attention than I think they've ever got before!

    Anyone remember this?



    Then we get this:



    I remember feeling a little wet in the pants after seeing that! XD

    I don't think it's modern animation techniques that made Dragonball look bad. I think it's the really dated art style that doesn't look good in HD, especially compared to lots of modern anime.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I like how they're making it sound like a super original idea. A lot of animation and art is done this way. It's a lot cheaper and more efficient to draw your storyboard out, do key frames, then the rest. A lot of cartoons do this. Puppet/cutout/skeletal animation are a completely different beast.
