Whining about lines on a screen is the whole purpose of the bad design thread tho.
You posted a supposed good design, I disagreed. It's not that deep.
I thought part of a good design is reflecting the characteristics of the character. IE a grandma that looks like a 10 year old would be a bad design unless plot requires it.

I really like Kazuma Kaneko's character designs, he's like the anti-Nomura kek. Whereas Nomura likes to keep things crowded and overdesigned - there's so many things to look at, one element is a part of another, which leads to another, and so on - he keeps things simple. Clean, straight lines and few colors

I absolutely love smug, condescending villains with so much power. I love how strong and unforgiving she is, even if what she's doing isn't ~*~*good*~*~. Turning her from basically an evil, all powerful god, to this fucking little piss baby trying to learn manners was pathetic. Not everyone needs or deserves a redemption arc, and White Diamond's was made even worse by the fact that it basically happens in one or two episodes rather than over the majority of the series, like with Zuko or something. They spend the majority of the series building her up and then… some little meatsack from Earth changes her for good? What? I will forever be pissed that WD was disrespected like this.

SU is a children's show but I also hate that she pushes the idea that everyone can change for the better and deserve a second chance. Some shitty people will just stay shitty people for the rest of their lives and they do not deserve a second chance and should be told to fuck right off!!

I like Nanachi very much too, she's very cute but also a character that has suffered so much. But the one thing that pisses me off so much is how the only people that like her are pedo scrotes, even though she's the least offensive of the kids. So in my mind I can't even like her because it will label me as a bad person.

I like this post because while Mob is my favorite anime/manga series, I've never thought about the designs being particularly good. I love the characters, not the designs. That being said, they're perfect for the themes of the series and suited for everything the animation team puts them through. Wouldn't have it any other way.

Have similar feelings about Koto from Kyousougiga. Love her and her big fuck you hammer, but my like for her character design mostly comes from the animation direction being so fun.

Director and character worked on the Gotcha! Pokemon AMV in the same positions (but with BONES animator firepower), and it has a lot of the energy Kyousougiga has condensed into a short.

Character designs that give the impression that their world was built around their design usually work really well. I know that's probably just what designs are supposed to give the impression of, but a lot of things just feel like they were put together to look cool not that that's wrong or never creates really great designs. Wouldn't call Nozomu particularly unique or striking as a design in any other style or series, but both the art style and SZS feel like they were built around him. I have somewhat similar feelings about Watashi + Ozu from Tatami Galaxy. They work so well in their original source style, it's almost hard to see them out of it without losing the charm.
that PV led to me finding setteidreams and buying the currently leaked MP100 s2 settei, so that was definitely a plus besides it existing in the first place

Anything that gives a bit more context as to how the director wants things done in motion! Mob's settei are a lot different in this way since it's a lot of character movement and special poses compared to a lot of character ref sheets. I think that gives a lot of power to the character designs in general, even if this leads to looser rules on what on-model looks like in the show. They've essentially been primed and perfected for what the team wants to do. This one is actually from an incomplete S1 scan set that hasn't been archived anywhere than a random Google drive, I think. I've been hunting for Mob sheets since only around 4 episodes worth of settei for each season have been found other than a few in dogshit quality that I tracked down on JP Pinterest out of all the places. Gray haired Teru being a thing shocked me. Also random height sheets on Setteidreams that haven't been found anywhere else, including me and other people's purchases of the S2 settei.

What settei did you download? I've been debating on buying some from Yuasa-directed shows once I have some spare cash. Unfortunately don't think I could find Kaiba's for sale anywhere, and the Yuasa books are expensive as fuck. That's what I'd want to get my hands on most if I could.

Ah, kinda implied here that there isn't a good amount character sheets for the Mob sets. Meant the balance seems to be more bent on displaying motion and a ton of different ways the characters emote and move + providing examples of the animation style for freelancers and the like. From the ~170 scans, most are really expressive rather than being standalone stiff character sheets like I've seen in a ton of other settei sets.

His work is really gorgeous. It's amazing what a nice style can do for a design.

Why is this a bad thing? Does having complicated reasons make something better?
Sometimes "hot", "cool" or "pretty" designs just suit the tone more than "practicle" looks. E.g. there's no real reason why the winx characters have their design but it suits the tone more than the "practical" alternative.

But is a hot character in a movie like Promare "incohesive"? All the fujo and coomerbait examples in this thread are from lighthearted things.

Can totally relate to Tomoyo wanting to dress her up in cute outfits all the time, I think she's one of the most adorable anime female characters.

I'm so upset about the new Winx designs. Winx is far more deeper than a bunch of girls wearing cute clothes. Their outfits represented their personalities and how they expressed themselves in different ways. Unfortunately, Nickelodeon didn't understand this, and absolutely created some of the generic outfits (and they ruined the story and the characters).

There's a lot more to say about this but all you need to know is that the original creator was really intent on pushing the more darker aspects of Winx and gathering an older audience. That's why all the characters look awful.

Sorry if this is cringe but I genuinely like the character designs in Undertale. Temmie Chang deserves more credit than she gets– Toby would hand her these abstract little doodles and she'd polish them into these iconic designs. I just like how varied and expressive they all are.

Genuinely loved RWBYs original outfits and team design. I enjoy how each design ties into their fairytale/colour scheme so well, yet they look good and cohesive together as a team.

The design of Alice in Madness Returns (and the previous game too, tbh) is impeccable. All of her outfits are beautiful and unique, and yet they do not sexualize her. I also like her appearance in the normal world. The only thing one might have against it is that she looks ana-chan, but she's a victorian waif from an orphanage, so it absolutely makes sense.

Honestly the blue mullet is a questionable choice but at the time it made him fucking legendary and I ended up liking it a lot. DMMD had such a unique and somewhat weird aesthetic that made it memorable and different from the usual BLs, also the pastel and neon colors gave me such a nostalgic and carefree feeling. Ironic, since the game is full of some of the most hardcore (and violent) porn scenes in BL visual novels, but I guess the contrast is also what makes it brilliant.
Aoba's voice actor? Also legendary. That man's performance is flawless. To this day I wonder how could he have the strenght to do it all.

I'm taking a deep dive in the fandom and read some interesting stuff:

>During development, one of the game's designers asked American McGee what should be seen if the player looks up Alice's dress (i.e. whether or not she should have visible underwear). McGee was annoyed and disgusted this was even a question, especially in a game about perversion, the sexual abuse of children, and considering how Alice is almost raped during the game, and her sister was raped. In the final game, peeking up Alice's dress results in fade-to-black. It is also notable that all of Alice's dresses are non-sexualized and lack breast jiggle.

>The first 'Alice' is still a much-loved and memorable game. What do you think made it so successful and enduring?

>McGee: I think it had a lot to do with Alice as a character. She's somebody that you can empathise with and the story we created by virtue of killing her family really drew a lot of people in. She was seen and still is a very strong female character; very intelligent using her wits to overcome obstacles.

>I see Alice as a very distinct character who has a voice in the discussion about the way she's presented. It's obvious to me that putting her in "sexy" clothes would be at odds with the origin story I created for her. She's been victimized and objectified by a sexual deviant. Having her dressed in revealing clothing would undermine the powerful story of Alice as an individual using her wits and imagination to overcome psychological trauma. (…) Same goes for representing her as an uncaring sociopath who, without justification, goes around murdering random people. The idea of an insane and out of control Alice violates the core narrative, theme, and nature of the story being told. She's not insane, nor is she uncaring. She's been shattered, yes, but she's working conscientiously to put the pieces back together. In the first game she's doing this for herself. In the second she accepts responsibility for others (children) who have suffered similar injustices. She's not seeking revenge at any cost. She's seeking to regain her sense of self and find closure. I believe people are able to see these things when they play the Alice games. They see a whole character which is internally consistent. This is what makes her relate-able and appealing to so many - especially to those who, like myself, experienced physical, psychological, or sexual trauma as children.

From the wiki of (hopefully still) upcoming Alice: Asylum
>Concerns Often Brought Up
>American McGee understands that Alice is age 13 in Alice: Asylum, and will not sexualize her in any way.

I know that the bar for the men is on the floor but it's still uplifting to see a male in game industry who has so much respect for his female character, and all that her story represents. Probably because McGee is an abuse survivor himself (though we all know that a lot of scrotes use that as a justification to abuse others).

I really like the Matryoshka designs. The grit, the colours, the expression, etc. Visually, it adds more enjoyment to vocaloid for me. Especially because it was different in an uncommon way for pv design. I think the design adds a unique tone to vocaloid characters, I wish there was more done like it.

God you sound like some 13 year old Twitter stan you fucking braindead mongoloid.
You sound utterly predictable. Let me guess, are you also some tranny Tumblr user that has a Hazbin Hotel character as their profile picture on one of your alt accounts?
There is nothing "iCoNIc" (God even talking in your Twitter language is sickening as fuck)
about Shitty and Fucking with Cancer.
It's a coomer anime and just because it's supposedly a parody (a shitty one at that)
doesn't excuse it from criticism.
And this is coming from someone who actually LIKES edgy humor and cartoon parodies.
The writing was complete shit, using the word fuck in every sentence in your show doesn't enhance your second-rate comedy and make it funny
(see Hazbin Hotel)

Shitty and Fucking are about two whores (the most unlikable breed of people known to mankind)
and how they try to be as much unlikable cunts as they can possibly be.
And the fact that some Japanese coomer thought it would be a good idea to rub his two braincells together to conjure up such a mess
to "paRoDy WeStErN cArTOonS" is even more cringy and pathetic.
Where do you think anime even originated from? Animation definitely wasn't invented by the buckteethed Japs.
Westerners have been the original ones who invented animation.
Without OUR cartoons, the slit-eyed Japanese gooks wouldn't have been able to create shit.
Yet complacent weeaboo retards like you throw your nuts and balls on the ground for Japanese animators to walk all over, you give ANYTHING
to worship Japan and their misplaced debauchery that they somehow claim belongs to us. Panty and Stocking isn't a "Western parody". It is the fever dream of an overzealous brain-defiecient Japanese coomer gook who was so jealous of Western animation, he felt the need to create such a spiteful bastardized mess.(calm down)

I didn't keep up with SnK after season 1 and I know it's got some questionable ideology from the creator, but I love its character designs. First of all I think Eren's big eerie eyes are beautiful, but the main thing I like is the presence of different shaped noses. Love that female characters like Hanji and Annie get to have big noses! In most anime they are nonexistent even though Japanese people can have them (I know anime is hardly realistic but cmon). Blogging for a sec because when I was a young teen, I took it kinda personal how noses like mine were barely represented even in western cartoons. SnK having a beautiful character like Annie was a confidence boost. But on top of that I think it's an easy and good way to have differing character designs without giving them hair the colors of the rainbow and shit. You know she's Annie because of her distinctive nose and fanart that omits it looks like someone else entirely.

No. 145608

Trannies appropriated striped thigh high socks and the pastel menhera look like men always do. And because she's a big titty waifu with the troon flag color scheme so it's pretty obvious. However I think she's cute and her psychotic terminally online NEET clownery is actually funny.

This makes sense because scrotes ruin everything. My favourite type of designs are the rare ones that men claim have no sex appeal or are manly or "dykey" and get psychotically angry over. I want them to be deprived of waifus. But I guess even then they will just make fanart to "correct" them.

No. 145612

I honestly hate that men sexualize literally everything about women. Menhera was originally a cope for mentally ill, lonely girls who turned their depression and anxiety to a cutesy aesthetic to make it more bearable in an environment where therapy was inaccessible or not helping them enough and of course scrotes had to appropriate it as their stupid aliexpress gear tranny vogue.

Menhera is fucking adorable and based. Also, genuinely fascinating.
Elyon best grill forever and ever. All of the Halloween costumes were great, but her was the best IMHO. I wonder what would become of her had the original creators weren't kicked out. She was supposed to be a big bad for much longer, if not until the end of the series. Wish we at least got more of her relationship with Cedric, it was unsettling in a realistic way.

No. 145759

I don't have all the details, but they got kicked out before the first saga ended. Not sure exactly when, but the last episode (in which Phobos gets owned) looks really badly drawn. Elyon reconnects with Cornelia when we still have original artwork, so IDK.
You can notice that the artists have been constantly changing. Most of the sagas start with okay artwork and devolve to worse at the end (or at least that's how I saw it, I could be wrong - I remember not liking how Nerissa was drawn in the final comics with her, though the artist put some effort into a full-page spreads, so IDK).
The original artists went on to draw Sky Doll (a NSFW though not pornographic) comic. I'm gonna read it soon since I knew about it forever, but when I was in my teens, only the first issue was available online.
Okay, I checked wikipedia for more info:
>W.I.T.C.H. (stylised as W.i.t.c.h.) is an Italian fantasy comics series written by Elisabetta Gnone, Alessandro Barbucci, and Barbara Canepa. (…) In 2004, series creators Alessandro Barbucci and Barbara Canepa unsuccessfully sued Disney for the initial rights to W.I.T.C.H. after issues with management at the publishing company. As a result, Canepa founded her own comics company.
>Upon seeing the success of PKNA - Paperinik New Adventures with young male audiences, some of the writers began thinking of a similar concept that would work for young female audiences. Elisabetta Gnone, Alessandro Barbucci and Barbara Canepa came up with the original concepts and designs. Gnone co-wrote the first issue of the series with Francesco Artibani.
>Gnone and Artibani originally created a concept that would last nine issues, but upon seeing the impressive sales numbers, a further three issues were ordered, rounding out the 12-issue first saga.
>In 2004, tensions arose between the W.I.T.C.H. artists and Disney's publishing (Buena Vista). Series creators Barbucci and Canepa unsuccessfully sued Disney for the initial rights to W.I.T.C.H., with Artibani acting as a witness in support of the two artists in court. After the lawsuit failed, Artibani and other artists decided to end their working relationships with Disney due to the "difficult management and company". Around the same time, Disney filed an unsuccessful copyright infringement lawsuit against Rainbow SpA, the studio behind Winx Club (a series cited as the main competition for W.I.T.C.H.). In its April 2004 suit, the corporation claimed the Winx Club concept copied that of W.I.T.C.H.; all of their claims were rejected in August, and Rainbow SpA won the case against Disney as they provided proof that the Winx Club production began before the W.I.T.C.H. comic was available.
>After breaking off with Buena Vista and in the middle of her trial against them, Canepa created her own comic book company, Soleil. She described it as a way to become "more sincere and uncensored" with her comics. Soleil was unable to secure the rights to W.I.T.C.H. from Disney, and instead focused on original projects. Canepa stated that she intended to keep all the rights to her comics; she said, "After my experience with Disney, it's important for me to protect myself."

Sorry for the autism, but have a comparison of episode 1 (both top) and episode 12 (finale of the Elyon saga, left) and episode 13 (right, the intermediate chapter between Elyon and Nerissa sagas). I should have probably gotten one of the middle chapters when Barbucci and Canepa were still responsible for the comic and gotten more used to the W.I.T.C.H character designs, but hopefully my point is clear anyway. lol
The artwork has probably gotten even worse in the Teach 2B W.I.T.C.H (I feel horribly even typing that name out) saga, but IDK if there was any other moment in which art has went downhill so fast.

>"muuh they're too skinny" "muuh they show too much skin for teens"
The funny thing is that they had adult bodies when transformed (IDK, probably 20 years old), but the creators haven't pulled any weird shit under the guise of that (like some pedos would). Also Irma was drawn as remarkably chubby (for the time aka early 00's and in comparison to her friends). In your screencap she specifically transformed to go to a music club because she looks older and thinner. Her crush (a few years her senior? Not sure) then attempts to forcefully kiss her in a car, and she turns him into a frog LOL sorry if you remember all that, I'm more mentioning it for other farmers who may read and don't know all the W.I.T.C.H lore

Ah hell, I would have liked that. As you and another anon said I did notice art style inconsistencies later on but I didn't know there was a creative change in the team writing-wise.

Random aside, I always felt Cornelia's storylines were more interesting. She was also deeply connected to Elyon, Caleb, Irma. I don't get why Will became their leader at all, it would make more sense for Cornelia since her PoV is actually more relevant to the main plot rather than Will.

NTA but you just reminded me how Irma is the chunky one. Nice to see, she is healthy and cute but also kinda husky. Hay Lin always read as the skinniest to me, not sure if true. Cornelia was the tall one ofc. I wish they made Will really muscular, she was an athlete afterall. It's nice to see different types of bodies that are still pleasant to look at unlike Tumblr art.

I actually never noticed that Irma was chubbier than the other girls.
However I remember being a bit weirded out at Cornelia's design in some panels because of her Alien-ish 5head kek. Was also loosing my shit at how good the art in Witch Magazine was, it was really cute.

>the LV campaign was really ugly but I hate LV's designs as a whole and that's a personal problem
I don't know much about LV but every picture looks like Lightning's head was poorly shopped into a picture of a real model. It's super jarring. I guess nobody could do it better at the time?
>Lightning kinda looks like your average anime bishie guy to me weirdly enough
She was created with a 'female Cloud' in mind
Now that I think about it, I don't really have a source on that info about Elyon not changing sides early on. I'm not sure if it came from creators or is only a fandom headcanon. I do think her reconnecting with Cornelia could have been planned for the final battle instead. Doubt she would have been just killed off, since from the start she seemed like a sympathetic, misguided villain (mostly thanks to her bond with Cedric and her brother).
>I don't get why Will became their leader at all, it would make more sense for Cornelia since her PoV is actually more relevant to the main plot rather than Will.
I see your point! Maybe Will was the leader to kinda subvert the expectation of the lead being the most important person to everyone. Kinda like Taranee has fire and Irma has water powers, even though you would expect the opposite from their persoanlities. Plus, Cornelia could be bitchy as hell and kinda unpleasant. The story would be different if she became the leader. I guess they also wanted to have the story about a girl hading to grow into the role. Cornelia would have 0% problem bossing the other guardians around (I guess that would be her story arc). I also cannot imagine Will being a 'rival' to Cornelia in the same way she was for her.
Having said that, I loved the Cornelia plots. Can't believe she broke up with Caleb because that's what the original Italian readers voted for LOL.
I also thought that Hay Lin was the thinnest, especially since she's a short one. Agree it would be nice if Will was more muscular, but I guess she was supposed to be a skinny tomboy… it would work more if she didn't look like Cornelia, but shorter.
>I also liked Winx charadesign a lot, especially Flora's, she had the best casual outfit imo
I also liked the original Winx designs (especially Bloom and Flora's), both the civilian and transformation ones. The Trix were also good! The problem was that the artwork in both the cartoon and the comix never did them justice. They always looked kinda bad… Also, maybe I'm being biased, but most of the other transformations seem ugly and mostly unnecessary beyond being an obvious cash-grab.

>Maybe Will was the leader to kinda subvert the expectation of the lead being the most important person to everyone.
This, but it also makes sense because Will seems much more relatable to girls reading it. Will had a tomboyish side but was still feminine, sometimes clumsy, well intentioned but didn't always know how to do the right thing. Cornelia gave off this effortlessly elegant, self-assured vibe that's a lot harder to relate to, especially for a tween girl.

Yeah, Hay Lin was skinny, short and the least curvy, Cornelia had the tall thin modelesque build, Taranee was kind of athletic looking, Irma was shorter and not quite chunky but more sturdy if that makes sense. And then Wills body type was a bit of a middle ground.
I don't think a muscular Will would have worked very well because even though she was a swimmer, a visibly buff body type on a 14/15(?) year old girl is very uncommon.

As a kid Hay Lin was always my favorite (alongside Elyon), also because I loved her fashion sense. I've recently reread some of the comics and nowadays I like Irma the most.

No. 145957

Too be fair, Caleb broke up with Cornelia mostly because he couldn't handle her being a normal girl from a different world. There was a W.I.T.C.H comic special which explored the issue by showing what would happen if Cornelia gave up on her life in Heatherfield as well as being a Guardian in order to move to Meridian and what if Caleb tried to live among humans. The artwork was shit and the stories were very melodramatic, but I enjoyed them nonetheless. Though the Caleb drama always felt like it was pulled out of nowhere for me, I guess maybe it was healthy that the comic subverted the fairytale romance cliche. Cornelia and Caleb felt like an endgame after their first meeting, and yet their love crumbled under reality. She eventually went for Taranee's sporty chad of a brother, a more realistic choice. Good for Elyon for bagging the cutie, even if someone could criticize her for dating Cornelia's sloppy seconds LOL. The whole double identity problem didn't exist with her, since she had zero interest in going back to the normal world

Worth playing if you enjoyed "The Last of Us" and games in general that explores themes of parenthood.

Fuck, tell me about your favorite .hack things. It's almost impossible to run into someone who's also into it. I want to get back, I haven't played/read/watched many things from the series yet. Fuck SAO for killing the OG series about people trapped in MMO. I will forever seethe about it. .hack// had so much more to give, but I guess we will never see it now. I wish at least the first series of games was remastered and ported to PS4 and PS5)

Endrance was such a glow up from Elk and made sense considering how Elk grew up. His insecurities, his obsessions, ect. I hate that SOA is the only anime ppl think of when it’s characters in an MMORPG. Hated Alkaid’s ENG voice but loved her design

Give it a chance, the manga it's very comfy but it does actually have a story, it's not a slice of life. I keep mentioning this but I was so happy to not see sexualized kids and 0 fanservice, it's been a breath of fresh air tbh. You would expect the quality of the art to go down but it remains amazing.

I love all of the Ralts line. They're so elegant and cute. The only thing I dislike is the weird tube thing Gallade has. Wonder why they went with that choice? Their shinies are nice too and Kirilia reminds me of Hatsune Miku.

I hate how I really love female character designs in western media like ramona or Jenny from my life as a teen robot, but the male designs from the same franchises are lazy, samey and bland. Scott pilgrim's got knives and Kim pine who look sick but young Neal and William Wallace look like literal who's. Makes me want to fuck the gender swapped version of the female character. Can't find any good gender swapped ramona art, but her design is memorable yet down to earth

maybe that's why i like it. I am a yumejo. the only reason i draw is to draw cute anime boys, yet 99% of yumejo media filters the fuck out of me. I hate how the male characters always look so overly manly, i prefeer when the style is more subtle and soft. I also hate the visual kei aesthetic that most anime boys targetted at women have. I dont know, it reminds me of Im@s cinderella stage, where the characters are also fairly simple looking, but not generic.

enstars is a shit game with forgettable designs. the one word of praise i can give it is how amusing it is that in spite of that and the sea of waifu idol games with 100x the quality, budget, and effort put in, it's still the highest earning rhythm game on the market. it stands as a harsh reminder that female consoomers are where the money resides and japcels absolutely despise it. now imagine what would happen if there was a good male idol game.

Not only idol games, but twisted wonderland is also doing really well. I wonder why we dont have more husbando games. The waifu shit game market is already saturated, so it seems like the natural next step. If i had money to spare i would invest in a Girls Frontline-esque husbando game. Speaking of GF, i like Springfield's design.

>I wonder why we dont have more husbando games.
I feel like there was a lot of bishounen idol/gachashit a few years ago, maybe the market became too saturated? Companies like to kill off games every couple years by making new ones for the players to spend more money on.

you don't have to, it's because the industry is full of incels who want everything to pander to them and them alone. jap moids are the only men in the first world so sexist they're willing to put their hatred for women before capitalism. not a tinfoil either, do a little digging and you'll see they don't even try to hide it.

Mikazuki Munechika is seriously a greatly designed character. But I also want him to fuck me so I guess I’m a bit biased.

No. 293875

That market became saturated in a very low-effort way, just like waifushit. I really wanted the joseimuke market to become bigger but instead we ended up with even more generic and designs.
But to be fair, I think that's a problem with commercial anime art in general these days.
The first Twisted Wonderland I ever saw was Leona and I really wanted to know where he was from because his design was so interesting to me, and I'm really picky when it comes to bishie deigns. But some of the others like that Cheshire cat guy and the tiny guy in this pic are pretty shitty.

It's not a tinfoil, it's obvious when you see how often they release new games, how important the anime is to market garbage to small kids, how they sell pretty much everything in Pokemon centers.

Great pick! Not sure if it was intentional, but I like how Zodd has a more animal like "classical" even majestic beast look instead of the freudian, nighmare-ish look of other apostles. It's like most berk demons are humans that turns into disgusting, degenerate monsters, but Zodd is almost like a pure beast that can turn into a human.
Also ironic how the most barbaric looking apostle in human form is also one of the most "classy"
