A new Thundercats series was announced, and the choice for drawing style was hugely rejected by both fans of the series and overall everyone whos tired of series in the last years having the exact same “tumblr” designs. It’s more or less common than in each era most series tend to a similar type of aesthetic, but the problem in this case is that the prevalent drawing is a huge downgrade in quality from the cartoon series of decades back, to the point this is already been called “the dark age” of animation. A big blame on this comes from the CalArts school of animation, in which they teach people to downgrade their drawing quality and draw all in the same fashion; and there’s also the problem of how animation studios now seem to be trying to pander to Tumblr instead of long standing fans or the overall public. If a company makes a reboot of an existing series, is because they want to capitalize on the already existing fans; if not, it would be far better to do a new series for a new public. So fans are, with reason, angry if they completelly change the product, downgrade the quality, fill it with contradictions to the original setting, or outright fuck the original product like The Last Jedi did.
Obviously, this page is a joke and i’m not going to change my style. But holy shit i must say is super easy to draw like this. I haven’t had to pay any attention to body structure, fingers, sizes, or even shadows
here's a video that represents my personal thoughts
And was made by a 5 year old.
i once disliked adventure time purely by its appearance
then I watched and ended up loving it
while I do admit that I don't got a good feeling about thundercats
i want to at least see what it's like first
ps awesome comic
If the stories and writing are good then I can't complain
I remember watching cartoons like Heathcliff, Inspector Gadget, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1980s), DuckTales, Tom & Jerry, and the older Looney Tunes when I was a kid. The art team working on ThunderCats Roar could have tried a little harder than this. It should not have taken too much more work to make them look like actual cat-people instead of goblins and still use a simplistic art style. I feel like the art team is doing as little work as they can get away with and hoping that the storywriters can save their asses.
I miss original the teen titans
So seeing something like this, which's a HUGE downgrade from both versions of the cartoon, makes me go "Is this really happening?"
That said. This thing's definitely gonna be released regardless of how many people disapprove or dislike it. Will probably even get multiple seasons and saying it's popular or great when its not.
That said, the girls look way curvier than before under the mangaka
Just Mumm-Ra's transformation alone tell you how cool the original show was.
Thundercats is an old show; making a reboot of an existing show has the intention of, at least partially, capitalize on existing fans, so there's not so much of a reason to do it in an art style that panders to kids. So in this case i would bet is more pandering to adults in tumblr than kids. I mean even Cheetara looks like a tumblr lesbian, and some of the animators are mocking fans on twitter with terms like "mansplaining"; everything to me sounds more "tumblr-like" than "kid-like".
Really, what bothers isn't the art style in and ofg itself, but how "kiddified" this new show will be. I know the newer WildStorm comics went the other extreme and made everything "dark and edgy", but really.
It's especially insulsting considering how well-received the last Thundercats reboot was.
Potheads are to blame for this, they leave their TV on Cartoon Network all day.
Just don't watch this show. Not everything is some huge controversy and if people do watch it, that's their choice.
They're not pandering to us, they're just trying to sell shit.
