Is anybody making art like "Do the Evolution" anymore? Anonymous 10/18/2020 (Sun) 03:46:29 No. 6309
I rewatched the video for Do The Evolution for the first time since it came out and was shocked at how good the art is. EVERY SCENE IS A MASTERPIECE. Yes, it's famous as one of the best cartoons ever made, but look at the huge gap between it and anything on TV these days. Is anybody producing artwork and animation with this attention to detail and quality anymore, even for fun?
The french and the japanese? but mostly shorts, never TV stuff
Keep in mind for one side the animation musical is not nearly as big as it used to be in the 90s since MTV is basically a zombie by now and that musical videos trend to have good animation because they are condensed in just a couple of minutes rather than several episodes of 22 like your average TV show, not to mention that cable overall has been going down for the last several years, so, that's basically the reason of the gap you noticed >Is anybody making art like "Do the Evolution" anymore? The artstyle it's derived from Batman TAS so you could check something artistically inspires by it like Primal or the DC direct tl video movies, but if you mean with similar attention to details, I think there are some graduations shorts from french/korean colleges that can be near of that you are looking for.
>>6320 >>6324 Could you guys post a few shorts that you can remember the names of?
>>6309 That sort of style is largely a product of 90s, and it was replaced by Cartoon Network's flat, simplistic, and cheap style in 2000s. Gen 13 animated movie and Spawn animated series are the closest things to it as far as long-form animation is concerned. Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys, Rosewell Conspiracies, and DCs animated universe shows and films from that era are very similar, but simplified a bit. Naturally, none of these are as polished as the music video. Out of high profile people working currently, Bruce Timm is the only who comes to mind. Even then, his style changed a bit over the years and got a little bit more exaggerated compared to what it used to be. >>6320 Got any links? I know that Gobelins uploads some of their students' animation, but I did not see anything in this style from them. Same for Japan Animator Expo before they took down their website. Few things I have seen come from Korea did not use that style either - it was all anime, typical CGI, cutesy, or sketchy avant garde wannabe styles.
Nope. Animation is long dead. Even anime is all digital vomit nowadays.
>>8117 >Digital Digital animation was common in the 90s and Do The Evolution came out in 1998.

IDW released a book detailing the making of the music video in October. Apparently it was only animated at all due to Pearl Jam wanting to do a music video to promote Yield and fulfill contract obligations without actually starring in said video. Todd McFarlane is co-director because frontman Eddie Vedder was impressed with the Spawn cartoon and wanted something similar in tone. >>6335 >Gen 13 animated movie >Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys >Rosewell Conspiracies Interestingly, the studio that produced those, Epoch Ink, also produced Do The Evolution
>>6309 It's not that good animation wise unless you're a complete normalfag simpleton, stop overreacting. It's about on par with a well animated episode in any of the Bruce Timm styled shows on the late 90s. >EVERY SCENE IS A MASTERPIECE Every scene is random edgy imagery of 90s genxers. Kinda cringy. It's alright as a whole but that's about it. If you're a sucker for cringy edgelord music video, Disturbed got you covered https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YV4oYkIeGJc

I'll necrobump this thread to say that the art for Porter Robinson's Shelter is really good. It's done by the same artists of Sword Art Online. Much of the credit is due to the beautiful backgrounds by Yusuke Takeda's Bamboo studio. Here's the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzQ6gRAEoy0

Honorable mention to Puparia by Shingo Tamagawa. The animation is choppy, there is no story (it's four disconnected scenes), but the scenery is amazing and the characters are drawn almost as well as the backgrounds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWnqX41JHuM

>>9236 That's some good shit
>>9237 Awesome, thanks
>>9237 I think that was done by an animator that worked on the Disney Tarzan movie.
It's anime and not all that recent now, but Redline was a visually stunning movie done to a really high level of fidelity that isn't cost effective and likely won't be repeated. It nearly bankrupted madhouse apparently.
>>10349 It also took 7 years.
