Get off your CalArts garbage



>rip and tear

looks good


Hope it's better than the final season of Samurai Jack.


Looking good, any animation with a big guy 4u protagonist is always fine by me.

The animation actually looks pretty high quality. Hopefully my full erection won't be in vain


Actually looks okay

Why can't American animation be more like this.



No one watches.






Are you stupid or something?



inb4 tv movie




Last season redeemed itself by triggering Tumblr and having a good final scene even if it went full Gurren Lagann



>triggering Tumblr

>letting them live rent free in your head

There's more to the show than that my newfag friend.



Finally, a cartoon that doesn't advertise gay shit.



You think that they're a boogeyman even after they have a foothold in the industry? You think that LGBT characters came out of a vacuum? lol



>You think that they're a boogeyman

Not really especially after the porn purge but you sure do.

>decent artstyle

>prehistoric beasts of all sorts

>Ancient caveman savagry unbound

I wouldn't even need dialogue beyond caveman grunting for this, so long as his actions and the worlds events can tell a decent story each episode.



They might have switched platforms, but they were still indoctrinated by tumblr.



Fuck that, the last episode was pure trash, I don't care who else disliked it. A fucking 5 second fight scene with Aku? Time-traveling via girlfriend? Just godawful.

Good news, but you should have posted a wemb/mp4 or at least an invidio.us link.


Because too many people who get get animation jobs usually get them due to personal connections, artistic ability be damned. Also, most companies funding animation want it to be as cheap as possible, and it is reflected in the final product.

Another factor seems to be that thanks to Simpsons, Family Guy, Southpark adult cartoons are expected to have bad animation.


>Minimal dialogue

Genndy is capable of doing that very well, but I am not sure if Adult Swim would allow too much of it.


It's about damn time he got to making another cartoon.



>but you should have posted a wemb/mp4 or at least an invidio.us link.

You are such a faggot.



>Why can't American animation be more like this.

Like what? In terms of animation? Action? fluency? Character design? Backgrounds?



Imagine being this obsessed over Tumblr shit.




>A Russian Jew is unironically the savior of western animation

The hero we need but don't deserve.



I don't think it's nepotism as animators have always networked, I think it's ideology. A lot of them LGBT types who want to create good propaganda instead of good animation. As a result, you end up seeing a lot of shitcoms with bright/saturated color schemes with a fixation of simplicity/cuteness. If you point this out to them, then they all collectively defend it and blacklist new ones that criticize it.

Genndy Tartakovsky looks like he has a simple art style, but he's always doing something inventive with it because he's a legit good artist, director, and animator who's disconnected from the influences that modern animators have.




The best episodes of his Star Wars show were the ones with very little dialogue, so he can pull it off okey


File: 13421633ee8c667⋯.jpg (26.27 KB, 712x534, 4:3, 1346701743994.jpg)


He originally was given 12 episodes, they cut him off at 10.


Watch any episodes of titan, Genndy hasn't really evolved past in comedy phase back in the 90s. He's funny but visual storytelling is his strength.







Hey look, summer's come early.



>Genndy hasn't really evolved past in comedy phase back in the 90s

I don't really get what you are saying here. In "Scape from Galaluna" there's a sword fight scene clearly influenced by his work on clone wars.



When it comes to dialogue. The guys funny but when he writes serious shit, he has some trouble.



I see what you are saying, visual storytelling and action scenes are his strongest point. To be honest recently I'm looking for cartoons focused on fluid animation and cool aesthetics instead of "serious writing" so I'm glad a cartoon like this one is airing this year.



>caveman brutally killing shit to stay alive

Cool, but inb4 love interest appears in final 20% of the series.

>Hey look, summer's come early.

This, my only worry for tumblr is that they will yell about toxic masculinity.

And even then the shit's done so they can suck it.


>To be honest recently I'm looking for cartoons focused on fluid animation and cool aesthetics instead of "serious writing"

I know you pretty much already mentioned it, but I'm really sick of "Well written" cartoons who don't know shit about the feels but only the mechanics of writing just because they want to have a good page in tvtropes.



>I'm really sick of "Well written" cartoons who don't know shit about the feels but only the mechanics of writing just because they want to have a good page in tvtropes.

Right? I mean, if I were looking for something well written then I would read a book. I watch cartoons because I look for good animation, writting is important, but if the show fails on the first point then It has used the medium wrong.

>if I were looking for something well written then I would read a book.

Don't shit on books, I've felt a lot more feels from books than "well written" cartoons, but you're right on the animation bit.

Books cause feels because you imagine the motion and the events described so you are getting them as best as they're gonna get for you.

I mention this because I'm complaining about the cartoon's writing, not their importance related to animation.

By all means Korra is a beautifully animated show and if you ignore The Last Airbender is more than a competently written show, but after season 1 the writing is so mechanic I could not pretend to give a shit about the series, either character or plot.

Over the Garden Wall besides some vignettes is a show with simple animation and the writing is not particularly complex, technically, emotionally though I was actually stressed when The Beast takes Greg.




It doesn't have to be well-written, it just has to be different/distinct. I'm sick of cartoons that have the shit.



Nice, shame I just don't care for that time period generally. Will give it a watch.



OtGW is The Divine Comedy but told differently.



Is there a difference between nepotism and networking? Like is it a spectrum of sorts?



People still use that site?



Nepotism implies that you got your position solely from your family connections without having any actual skills to back it up.



This looks fucking dope. I wonder if it'll be a dialogue-less show.



I still want Korgoth though.



This. "Good writing" is important because the story is the core of the piece. It gives meaning to otherwise worthless spectacle. This is one reason why splatter-on-canvas paintings are so empty compared to works of the past.



Maybe if this does well they might let him do Korgoth.



So what would the plot even be?



He could need to rescue members of his tribe from another tribe that's lead by a dark shaman or something like that, that could be season 1.

But quite honestly if it's just him fighting for survival in a prehistoric wilderness each episode I'll still watch it.

Fighting for hunter-gatherers to live life in peace against some militant agriculturalists led by a shaman using plant psychedelics and illusions to keep the slave army afraid and in line? Then they team up in season 2 with some pastoralists to liberate the numerous but sickly grain-fed slave society.



>pastoralism isn't agriculture

2/10 made me reply



The Calarts clique won't allow those who aren't politically like-minded as them, or draw better than them to be in their industry. They'd sooner kill the industry than let their huge student loan for animation go to waste. You're going to have to wait another generation for the next gen of animators to overthrow this nu-guard.



>Durr Cal Arts boogeyman




You're implying that there is not an incestuous clique that is running the show on the major cartoon networks.

Fuck, so many people were on the couch with Alex Hirsch they spread his fucking STDs among various buildings

>I'm just gotta post some random screenshots with no context whatsoever that gonna prove my point! Am I right, fella



Cal Arts is just a strawman used by people who don't know shit about animation to refer everything they don't like and do not act like it's not.






Go back to whatever site you came from, faggot.



this sounds like some sort of mafia

>dont say mean things about us…or else

Yikes. This post is cringe as fuck. Not dope at all.



Looks alright, but it's a masterpiece by the current shitty standard we have right now.



If this is true, that would explain why shit keeps become so prevalent. Anyone with talent would criticize the blatant garbage and be kicked out for some talent-less hack who will praise it.

Still salty on the tonal whiplash on the last season of Samurai Jack. Also wasted time on waifu-ing. How much is Gendy and how much is executive meddling? I don't know.



meanwhile… Japan hire hentai-artist for character designs or transition to mainstream comics. (Just don't piss off SONY)
