A thread for those who enjoy and wish to discuss animation and animation related stuff from places that aren't Japan.

That Retard who made Ren & Stimpy used to call the faux-disney look as "Calarts".

When I say Calarts I just meand "the modern simplistic, geometric, flat style western Animation has had since the late 90's"


Calarts isn't actually a specific style or a useful descriptor.

>simplistic, geometric, flat style western Animation has had since the late 90's
It sounds like you are describing the old cartoon cartoon shows from CN, which I almost never hear described as calarts.


Whenever i see calarts mentioned it is in reference to the art style of specifically 1. Adventure time or 2. Steven universe. This guy >>59744 gave a good definition and even a meme that illustrates the point and for some reason we are still discusses what it is.


And to what end?
What is even the point anyway?



Fuck frederator.


Regardless the vast majority of the info presented is legit.

Testing 2


Please stop.
This thread isn't for this.


Funny, it's today that I've woken up with that tune stuck in my head.
So is there the original animation (i.e. the porn 'toon itself) somewhere on the net? I haven't been able to find it anywhere. I imagine it would barely have any value as fap material for me, but should be curious due to its viral/meme effect at least.


I’m pretty sure it up on e621


Thanks, will watch it. The trailer reminded me of White Snake, another Chinese feature-length animation. It was also okay in general and better visually, guess I can recommend it.

Honestly, I salute China seemingly beginning to excel at animated filmmaking recently. This is good for the fans in itself, but since the suicidal West wants to turn its film industry into yet another dumpster fire, it's 'beggars can't be choosers' for people.


I really do need to get around to watching White Snake. It looks good and it's been on my to watch list for years.


Artist is Zone.


Do they still dump most of their stuff on newgrounds or have they finally moved on from there?


I thought it was minus8.


i like the porn one better
even the music was better



Its been bugging me how the OP for a thread specifically for "animation related stuff from places that aren't Japan." 2/3 images in it are from Japan.


Japanese animation has been quite influential for decades, now.


It was posted due to the content and point because it's talking about animation as a whole as a medium of expression.


Post non-nippon animation then.


Seems there's another "animation strike" happening in America. Let me make this clear; if you don't know how to physically draw action scenes, in full motion, you don't deserve your cushy Hollywood animation gig. They act like they deserve anything more than what they get for doodling storyboards, something completely useless in the long run when everything is puppet rigged by koreans. Inhouse animators broke their wrists to make art. These cunts act like they're too good for making shitty newgrounds animations, which is what their skill level equates to.


quit trying to flame.


One guy did this?



Oh look, more jap shit where it doesn't belong.
There are dozens of other more appropriate threads to post this yet you choose the one where it's off topic.


i thought a white guy made it though


>There are dozens of other more appropriate threads to post this yet you choose the one where it's off topic.
Not having this derail argument again.
Fuck off troll.

Watched Smiling Friends Season 1

It was alright, made me smile. Stuff like people exploding and random acts of things being smashed make me laugh and that's a lot of what got me. There's not really any clever humour. It's moreso observational and absurdist comedy, but about nothing in particular. You can tell the creators were just having a lot of fun with it. A lot of the characters are voiced by random internet and video game hasbeens but no real obnoxious personalities like Twitch stars.

I watched it because I kept seeing clips posted online that were kinda funny on their own but turns out those clips make up almost the entire season because it's only 7 episodes at 11 minutes each.


It's interesting to see the culmination of these ex-Newgrounds guys' careers. They've been trying to break into the industry professionally for about a decade, now.


These newgrounds and youtubers are funnier and more clever than hollywood writers.


Maybe, but they suck at networking, logistics, and organizing large teams so it's rare they get far.

Animation is usually a large group effort once you get to the point of producing tv or feature length projects.
There are rare exceptions but most of those exceptions didn't come from newgrounds.
The main problem is the solo/small team workflow and tight community that causes the best success in the newgrounds and youtube short form content format don't translate to the large group networking, organization, and delegation skills necessary to make it in the mainstream. So it's rare for them to breakthrough unless they basically remake themselves to fit the shitty hollywood scene. Often losing the creative and unique things that made them stand out in the first place in the process.

The Spine of Night

Seen the box cover at the store and that it was a adult animated film I had never heard of so once I got home I gave it a go. Went in totally blind and didn't know what to expect.

It was pretty different from just about anything that came out in the last few years so it's got that going for it. But personally I wasn't really a fan. The writing, the performances, and most of all the execution of the animation style were all not to the quality level I expect from a feature length movie.

Still, it being quite different from everything else that came out in a long while was refreshing, and I was never bored throughout the whole runtime.


Going far in to the past can be quite fun.

I was never into Transformers, not even the animes, but remember really liking Beast Wars when it came out. Re-watched it now. The first season was very disappointing, all the characters and their actions were excessively dumb, and it didn't even had a point, every episode the Maximals would do something dumb for no actual reason and be outdumbed by the Predacons, just to lead to five minutes of them shooting around each other, not that it would make any difference because when they landed a hit it was of no consequence. I know it's supposed to be just a pretext to sell toys, but that's not an excuse. But then came season 2 and it was absolutely amazing, great overarching plot, character development, several memorable moments, I'm glad I didn't drop. Season 3 dumbed down back, I don't know why they didn't keep the tone.

The Maximals were very uni-dimensional, either boring or annoying. Cheetor and Rattrap were too annoying, and I hated Silverbolt so fucking much. The "nonono if you kill bad guy then you bad guy" is stupid and got old fast. The Predacons were much deeper and better worked, even the ones that changed side. My favorite character was Dinobot, and Waspinator was legitimately funny. The power scale doesn't make sense either, one episode the character gets a new form and defeats everyone at the same time, then next episode he just gets inactive after a single shot. And some things were overdone like "shot from the back while being inattentive on the battlefield" and "crushed by a boulder that was behind". I will still try Beast Machines though, never had the chance to watch any of it when younger.


The oscars are worthless garbage, especially when it comes to animation.


I thought it was an ok show thats been extremely overhyped by people who have a parasocial relationship with the people who made it. I'm glad these guys are getting their shot rather than some dime a dozen LGBQT animation twitter psycho but the cult of personality shit around it is so obnoxious and i don't think the show is good enough to overshadow it. They're obviously still finding their feet so maybe season 2 will be better.


Do you think Shrek would have gotten over his loneliness in time to become a truwiz if Farquad didn't interrupt his life? Or perhaps was he too broken to not be a wiz at all? After all, he did allow himself to have romantic feelings for Fiona. I don't know if he could be trusted even if Shrek 1 never happened.

I don't know if it was the oscars or not, but I remember there was a year where some voters didn't know any of the animated nominees, called Song of the Sea "Chinese"(It's Irish), and just gave their votes to the Disney movie because it was the only one they knew, even if they didn't see it.


A general distaste for the Walt Disney Company and its practices had solidify Nickelodeon's motivation to limit size and avoid feeling "corporate".
All of this was thrown out the window after Spongebob premiered.


I've watched all of Helluva Boss, and, I watched Hazbin Hotel. For being a gay cartoon with equally gay characters the animation is high quality and its overall very enjoyable


pozzed trash looks like shit, you are talking out your ass.



Finally got around to giving Hilda a chance.

3 episodes in so far and my first impressions are it a little slower and more relaxed in it's story telling then I would prefer but the characters are endearing and world is very interesting.
I am eager to see more. I just hope that them moving to the city doesn't begin dog-whistling "the message" or have things generally go to shit.
What got me interested is the otherworldly shenanigans. If it becomes another Steven universe I am fucking out.


Even if i despise the nihilism of rick and morty,and the show too,i cant stop liking this claymation shorts
