Inspired to make this thread today because I saw this, words cannot explain how uninspired and lazy this looks. This is apparently a reboot(?) sequel/continuation of How to Train your Dragon. It takes place in the 'modern' age where dragons are coming back to live with humans, even though they established in the last movie why that was a bad idea.
Idk what it is but the main dragon looks awful, I think it's supposed to be a descendent of Toothless and the white dragon, but the coloring makes it look freakish for some reason. The other dragons look even more out of place, all the awesome sharpness of the og designs is lost here. Everyone else looks like they were ripped from stock 3D character asset packs. It's a shame, HTTYD was one of DreamWork's best franchises too, but I won't let this spoil the other movies for me.

aw i think the main dragon is cute, it looks like a cat?
but ive never enjoyed the style of HTTYD and always found it unpleasant to look at in general

Maybe it's just me but I hate when new characters are added and they don't match the designs to fit in with the show.
The new Ice Age looks bad for movie quality and the new character looks like it's from a completely different franchise

I'm actually okay with the character designs for Earwig, it's just that the animators never bothered to change the lighting at all for any of the scenes or have any interesting shots
File: 1647379228761.jpg (148.18 KB, 1095x617, Skullcrusher_the_Rumblehorn.jp…)
Ironically that's the one I have the least problem with, I could see it existing in the movies. HTTYD is always remembered for me for having more unique dragon designs, the new ones in this show just look too round and cutesy to be dragons from this franchise

Earwing could have been a lot better if only they bothered to work with the lights and toned down the expressions a bit. The faces are even more exaggerated than 2d Ghilbi movies, I don't get why they went for more cartoony ones. Some shots and promotional images even look good (I think picrel is pretty acceptable), maybe they had a low budget?

What the fuck is that stupid scarf thing she is wearing? Even though the bikini top was dumb, Black Rock Shooter's old design is appealing because it has cool biker vibes. Now they just went full coomer. She looks younger and she's wearing even less clothes.
Looks like they gave her an extreme cropped sleeveless jacket. Her original jacket is cooler because it gives off the impression of a cowl if she puts the hood up. She looks more unsure instead of stoic because of the younger look. Terrible choice. I hate the lack of clothing too. It looks jarring.>>201617
Waifu bait goals possibly? Younger girls don't have scars push narrative? Most likely a retarded reason.
The sad thing about Earwig is that I think the designs were interesting and the planning sketches and all that were pretty cool, but they translated it horrible into 3D. Everyone looks like they're made of playdoh and the shading was weird throughout the movie.
Sucks to say, but I don't think Miyazaki's kid really has a talent for animated movies. Earwig was fine, but he's not a gifted animator, and by that I mean that his work doesn't feel inspired and passionate.
File: 1651367382068.jpg (94.77 KB, 561x430, maxresdefault.jpg)
why are people obsessed with this character? is he supposed to look like an incel tranny?
This guy's genuinely fucked too. These creatures he made up (that just look like your regular dA sparkledog/furry abomination) have a society where the smartest is at the top and has the right to humiliate all the others by decapitating them, contorting the body and raping it. As you can see here >>191746
the body the purple boa girl is holding is posed like one of Dahmer's victims
. He also makes the decapitated heads have an ahegao expression. He was a brony too.
It's funny because this guy used to go on and on about being better than Disney and shitting on the characters while having the audacity to say that his porny furries were better.
Nta but yeah basically. Apparently he was never a good father, his son was pressured to get into animation and he already had a huge pressure on him (being Miyazaki's son) and his father barely even helped him with his movies. He was made to direct Earthsea with little to no previous experience and then Hayao had the guts to go see it, walk out in the middle of it (rude fucker) and call it trash (no shit).
As for Earwig, if you know the context you'd know that it's impressive it even got made. It's based on an incomplete novel and in Japan is was actually meant to be some sort of TV special instead of a full movie (which explains why or ends so suddenly and the pace is a bit weird). It is also Ghibli's first try at a fully rendered CG movie so the weird textures and expressions can be excused (kinda) and the team was mostly made up of novices. You really can't expect the quality level of a regular Ghibli movie when you have a poorly experienced director with daddy issues, a brand new medium and not a lot of skilled animators. I did appreciate the soundtrack in Earwig though, I thought the rock-ish sound was a nice change from the usual Ghibli music.

Disagree. Some of my favorite Horikoshi designs are female characters. Uraraka, Toga, Jiro, Tsuyu and Mirko look amazing. But his bad designs really stand out because of how awful they are (Momo, Midnight, Tohru)>>205258>she’s supposed to be a doctor, eh I’ll just throw a lab coat on her

When I first saw her I thought "oh, just coomer waifu bait", but I was surprised to find out she's actually a very compelling character and her personality isn't coomer baity at all to me. She's in her 40s and is a single mother, of course some of the moid characters make fun of her for her age which I also dislike. I like her a lot, but her design is just…

Most of the characters in this series are ugly, thanks to the annoying hair colors and hideous hentai proportions, but these two take the cake. Lucoa looks like a bad deviantart OC. Her breasts are too big, her clothes are boring, don't fit her personality and clash with her hair color. And what the fuck even is Ilulu, that thing leaves me speechless because of how hideous it looks.

I don't play rainbow six but sometimes I get curious about it because I like some dude's design's and also Caveira's design.
gonna go in an autistic rant
every time i see this anime i just get so depress. At its best it's a series that explores the concept of adopted families and the affects a parent can have in a child's self esteem. At worst it's a dumb pedobait hiding in the guise of yuri.
The girl in the left makes me the most depressed. She's a dragon that gets summoned by a little boy. Aside from the obvious disgusting pedo undertones, there was one scene in the manga I really enjoyed. He goes in this witch tournament test thing and he gets bullied by the other kids and due to him being quiet in nature just takes it all. He gets scared in the trials and mess up every now and then. He was clearly struggling and there was the green haired girl cheering him on which gives him a little hope and for the first time in years actually passed the test. It's later futher revealed that the kid's dad doesn't really acknowledge his existence and that's why he's always trying to do things to impress him (like summoning the green haired girl) but he gets no recognition or appreciation what so ever. He has a mom but due her not being a witch, she can't really help nor does she really try.
He tells her that he appreciates the time she took in watching over him and supporting him in an area that his parents couldn't.
and i love that.
i wish that was more of that.
i wish this manga continued exploring that. but it doesn't and made an entire dragon mating scene instead.
kek thank you>>208163
I just realized that these designs remind me of those shitty Kisekae dolls with their dumbass cow-like legs and tiny feet. The one on the left in particular looks like they set her boob size to max.
not enough people talk about how awful her outfit is. It looks like a patchwork abomination of hideous 2010s trends>the weird ugg boot things>paired with black tights>paired with a denim skirt>paired with a slogan long sleeve t-shirt
I don't have the image on me rn, but there's this compilation image of women wearing black leggings, denim skirts and sandals. This looks exactly like that.

I actually think this character is really cute. Or it could have been, if they didn't ruin it with their stupid strapless dress and detached sleeves obsession. The cleavage looks cheap and it doesn't fit the cute and innocent vibe she's going for at all. They took what could've been a perfectly cute design and ruined it, it makes me mad. Overall I still like her, but these two defects really bother me.

Don't forget its a f-ing GRANDMA, riot games are the biggest cowards to exist when it comes to character design. They made a new void champion after years just to turn it into a coomer 'mommy dom voice' bs. They could have made a monster like Rek'sai, but they want to make sure people jerk off to their champions so they'd make more skins.

I think it’s shisantian. Coomer design is a given considering the game industry but sometimes he makes pretty good outfit designs like pic rel
File: 1655220488531.jpg (801.36 KB, 1280x1024, ivy-sc4-spec.jpg)
Ivy's design from Soul Calibur 4. Yeah I'm SC fan and this design of Ivy's was always one of my most least favorites ever. I understand that she's the sex symbol of the series and always wore provocative outfits but this look here was one of her absolute lowest and overall one of the tackiest outfits I've ever seen. I wouldn't even call it an "outfit" kek
Again, I understand she was a coomer design from the start but out of all the designs she's had, this one is the one I loathe the most. Which sucks because she's an interesting character in terms of the story for the series.
File: 1655220564334.jpg (1.11 MB, 2880x5120, ivy-sc5render.jpg)
That said, I thought her Soul Calibur 5 look was easily her best. It's still coomer but it had a lot more nice intricate details going for it, I liked the incorporation of lace into it, makes it feel loosely sophisticated.
File: 1655220816088.png (736.46 KB, 923x1000, rachel-musou-orochi2-special-c…)
Rachel from Ninja Gaiden. Her design always annoyed tf outta me. Like Ivy, super coomer they weren't even trying to hide it. I guess the pattern is I hate overt stripper designs in action games because it's cheap and breaks the immersion for me and Rachel's is easily one of the biggest offenders of it. Even when I saw her design as a 14 year back when the first NG Xbox game came out, I thought it was gaudy.

Kitana from MK9 specifically. Again, coomer design from the start (somewhat) but this one is easily my most least favorite look of hers while it's unsurprisingly the favorite of a lot of moids. The thing I hate the most about this design is that it just looks like it was thrown together in 5 2-3 minutes. There's no cohesion and just no style and her alternate costume in this game wasn't any better.
She got a major glow-up in MKX with an outfit that actually looked nice imo.

(Anon you replied to) I love that one too, that's one of her best alts! But I also liked her alternate from SoulCalibur 3, I thought that look was very pretty and fitting for Ivy's character perfectly, at least more so than any of her dominatrix themed outfits anyway.
Like I know coomers are gonna coom but I wish that they just ditched the dominatrix thing and followed suit with the alternate from SC3 and build from that.
File: 1655233255872.jpg (149.82 KB, 1280x1080, ivy-soulcalibur1-sc6-render-co…)
I think I'll add Ivy's SC6 look to tacky designs as well. The outfit is supposed to be a recreation of her look from the original SoulCalibur 1 on the Dreamcast (on the left) and while that look was already on the provocative side, at least it looked like it fit on her. Granted this was back when her breasts looked more or less proportionate before they made them huge but yeah, it looked okay-ish. But they went ultra coomer with the redesign making the chest piece not fit her bust and expose more of her abdomen. It's just a tacky design and it doesn't help that we didn't get any alternates this time around in the game neither.

You're absolutely right anon. ALL the female characters were dressed like pornstar meets strippers and it's kinda insulting lol. Sonya's is the closest to wearing something of an actual outfit. Like honestly all she needed was a matching black tank top worn under the vest and she'd be good to go.
But I guess Kitana's got to me the worst because she's supposed to be seen as a princess type of character and like, how does a look like that convey "princess"? to anyone? I swear this is why I hate a lot of moid who design with their dicks and not with their brains.

I've always had a like/dislike with Lulu's design. I like the whole gothic aesthetic when it comes to character design and there are elements of Lulu's design that I like ornate details on her dress and sleeves, the fur neckline, and the bodice but it's those fucking belts man, they really ruin what could've been a pretty cool look.

Oh I can't believe I forgot about that look from the first game. I really liked that one a lot as well and back in the day, I felt like it was a blueprint for this >>214270
Either way, both outfits rock and I agree, Ivy really did deserve more elegant outfits, it's why her SC6 look pisses me off so much because it was a step backwards into retarded coom territory which sucked because her SC5 look was a decent meshing of the two themes (Dominatrix meets Classy, by her "standards" anyway lol).

Taki is one of my favorite characters to play but I agree anon, most of her primary outfits are so fucking dumb. I'm just thankful that despite her stupid coomer suit, they didn't put her in dumb exploitative situations, at least that I remember anyway.
She at least did have some good alternates, her SC2 alternate was always my go-to. Still a bit coomer in design but I'd take it over the skin suit since it kinda looked cool when in motion.

Reminds me of Peach Girl. Maybe her lips look weird because most manga artists don't draw defined lips that often? I respect your opinion tho, maybe "porny" is not the word I would use, but her face looks a little off.
So far I've been accused of being white, being a bitter and jealous weeb, all because I thought a character's lips look inflated. Next you're gonna tell me I'm a jealous thin lipped white weeb because I think a cow has too much lip filler kek. Imagine being this angry >>218264

Aw I like the 4th one if you're talking about the 2004 design on the bottom left corner. I'm bias though because technically Stand Alone Complex/2nd Gig was my first exposure to Ghost in the Shell, I was too young when the 1995 movie came out to have known about it in the 90s and I didn't get into manga reading until about 2005. I do think the '95 movie is a striking look and I'm glad they weren't trying to make her look like a generic sex barbie unlike what's going on with Ilya's design. She looks so generic and lifeless. I mean I get she's not human but come on kek.

I don't blame the school tbh, I blame the lazy students that don't use the tools that were given and the tips that they learnt from their professors to create something new and interesting.
Just because they learnt how to do a style doesn't mean they can't experiment, this isn't like during Da vinci's era in which if they didn't use the exact canons they wouldn't even get a glance from anyone.

There's also a ton of other ones I hate like the trash can dragon, fat squirrel, vore bird, useless Regis, thicc Stonehenge, literal cum, and some more I don't even want to look up.

pokemon legendaries are pure garbage and have been for years. actually i didn't mind the wolf pair in swsh because their designs complemented each other way more than past "paired legendaries" for me. maybe because i could actually tell they were supposed to be a sword wolf and a shield wolf instead of some overdesigned confusing mess. beyond that, the power creep is insane. they have to keep making legendaries/pseudo-legendaries stronger and stronger to compete in the meta and it's absurd. soon we'll get a legendary with base 300 in every stat.

i think they were referring to cramorant? it picks up a fish, or sometimes a pikachu, to change its form. personally i found the pikachu eating animation pretty cute.
It’s weird to call this a “vore bird” when it’s based on a cormorant, which are birds that absolutely stuff themselves to the point they can’t fly if they get enough fish. It’s a cute and silly theme. Calling it “vore bird” makes me think they need to go outside and away from the computer for awhile. >>223119
I was ok with the red one until I saw the tire. Also someone said the purple one is shaped like a penis.
I think I meant Mega Rayquaza but tbh that red pokemon's overall shape is reminiscent of at least 5 other pokemon>>223142>>223150
I hate a lot of new Pokemon designs but Cramorant is one of the few I like. I never thought about vore when I looked at it but I can't blame anon for that being her first impression since the fandom is absolutely cancerous and pornsick, "vore" is no longer an obscure porn thing only few online circles know about and is now widely joked about, and GameFreak has a track record of pandering to furries, coomers and weirdos.

I fucking cannot stand this style, it's like the default for most cartoons on cartoon network these days and I miss the days of the late 90s and early 2000s where you saw so much more variety in cartoon styles. You'd have something like The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy to Xiaolin Showdown and Ed, Edd, N Eddy and Courage the Cowardly Dog. It's depressing that 15 years later and we're stuck with this garbage. It's like mainstream character design in terms of art style got so much lazier and it makes me grateful I grew up in the late 90s to early 2000s for animation.

Femboy designs can be VERY hit or miss and most aren't very good. In fact when it comes to anime, most have terrible designs and the only one I actually like that comes to mind is Haku from Naruto. I think "femboy" designs work when there is actual cohesion and not trying to creating a look that over the top and so in your face.

Beanmouth style is so overused now because it's easier to animate and some popular cartoons in the early 10s used a similar style so it's what gets pushed in American animator schools to churn out mediocre animators who only know the bare minimum (sometimes not even that) and can only work with the style that's currently the industry standard. From what I've read, if you try to attend an animator's school in the USA, especially CalArts you'll realize that their goal is to get rid of artists' own unique personal style, because they don't want innovators, they want people who can copy the most generic, soulless and (most importantly) cheap artstyles because that's what works and so they can pay animators less, plus now there's more demand for CGI/3D animators so we are stuck with beanmouth style in mainstream American cartoons. Disney may have higher standards than other studios because well, they're fucking Disney and have a reputation to uphold (and profits to make from that reputation), so their cartoons can look decent despite having the same style (e.g. Gravity Falls, Star vs) but if you look at Cartoon Network 2D shows, you'll quickly realize that they have absolutely no quality control (e.g. Steven Universe, Craig of the Creek). They give no fucks, as long as it's easy to produce and gets popular enough to generate a profit, even better if it happens to become wildly popular.
Childrens cartoons are more aimed towards adults than anyone anyway. I'd argue even starting with Adventure Time era. Now cartoons are just self inserts of the creators, long continuing plotlines most children don't give a shit about, and agenda-pushing morals of the story.
Remember how cartoons used to be 15 min snippets, designed for children's short attention spans? And there was always a resolution in the end? There's barely any of that anymore. These cartoons are just a way for creators to sniff their own farts. They don't care about a child audience and it really shows.
AYBRT, you guys made great points and I agree. It really does seem like these days western cartoons are more preoccupied by having self-inserts with "deeper" story narratives then just you know, telling a story and having fun. I can't help but feel like Avatar The Last Airbender was the starting point though don't get me wrong, I fucking love that show and it doesn't feel like something that is a creator's self insert but what I mean is the drive for cartoons to have continuing plot-driven narratives.
And what we're seeing with this UGLY and frankly lazy looking animation style that is the CalArts style, the creators don't care about the visual creativity of the show and are more about unleashing their ego and sometimes agenda into their cartoons that like you said, kids won't give a shit about anyway.
Again I'm glad I got to grow up with cartoons like Hey Arnold, Ed Edd n Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Powerpuff Girls, Fairly Odd Parents, and so much more. Cartoons that didn't have deeper narratives and were just silly hijinks and episodic.
I don't hate narrative driven cartoons, like I said I loved ATLA but I just miss the variety in both the nature of the shows as well as art style and I can't wait for the CalArts style to die off and we see a return back to stylized cartoons in different art styles.

I finally got around to watching Demon Slayer after putting it off for years and I just finished the arc with the Spider Demon family and this character has stuck in my head for quite some time after. On the one hand I love her pale white color scheme but it's the big ass boobs that really bring her design down for me. I'm not saying that women being drawn with huge breasts is wrong or anything like that but there's just something lowkey coomer about the design that irks me. Especially with the added in context that she's supposed to be a child who took on the form of an older women to play the "mother" role which is kinda creepy. Like the concept is interesting but go for the coomer "milf" look?
At the very least I appreciate that they didn't really grossly objectify her by focusing on her breasts or having her get into ridiculous angles or positions just to perv on her.

>>228264>Raymond is closer to those scrotes in all honesty
Wrong. Don't associate Raymond with those scrotes. I highly doubt they make themselves look prim and proper. In all Barold is the closest one.
I posted this in the transwash thread but yeah his new design is a mess. The only thing about the design that I like is the skirt, skull belt, and boots but the waistcoat and top hat is so fucking dumb and really make the outfit as a whole look tacky and mismatched, especially when in motion.
And then of course the "nonbinary" bullshit, fuck off.

Cheap shot + apparently she’s already had a redesign but holy shit out of all the Bob’s designs hers always bothered me the most. All of them are so overdesigned but I felt like there was no effort put into Charlie at all. It always felt like she was missing key elements to her designs, like why is she wearing a formal bellhop outfit with a casual hairstyle? Why is half her hair curly and the other completely straight in the crazy low ponytail? I want to give her a hat so bad.

I very much preferred her pilot design tbh. She has a more friendly, cheerful and easy-going look that fits her personality and character way better than her redesign. Don't really like her eyes red all the time instead of those dark puppy dog ones. Her eyes are better off red when she's going in demon mode. For her pants, the black one contrasts well with her top rather than having it completely red. For her hair, it looks better with a single tie at the end making it look loose and flowy than having it tied twice which looked pretty stiff. Not really a fan of the redesigns except for Vaggie. They all just looked watered down and unnecessary.

The asian girl is cute and I like the nun but man the rest look so unappealing.. I'm so bummed about the designs because I love Henry Sellick so much and I was excited to see him collaborate with Jordan Peele…
I hope the movie's good, maybe the designs will grow on me then
I know so many people (including women) that love the shit out of this series and praise it as the next coming of christ and I never understood why because to me it's nothing but a generic harem pandering anime, just with female MC, but this doesn't change the concept of the series or makes it any better or more interesting.
Think I dropped it when they introduced the loli since I was already fed up with the other characters before and couldn't stomach seeing them checking the next otaku harem fetish option. I haven't even seen (or don't remember) the first girl in your pic, I hate that design the most I think.
I feel you about Pi's awful design. It really didn't fit her… Unless all she cares is putting some ass in Yata's face kek.
Which .hack novels would you recommend? I need to play the old games. Tried long ago but could not get over combat feeling poor and floaty I guess.
If the character writing was more realistic in the first game series, I'm probably gonna love it. I have enjoyed GU so much, but wish that the plot didn't feel like cliche shonen at times.

Dead thread but whatever.
Yes, these are the protagonists of the upcoming mainline FE title.
lmao I was just
about to post them myself
not gonna lie, some of those designs look like racist caricatures. I saw this video on TikTok about this movie saying it's gonna prove time burton wrong on POC
not working in his style but this shit looks fugly.
These look like bad OCs with some edgy backstory like 'they r desendints of marth BUT ALSO half demon do not steel"
In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they went with that explanation.

File: 1663223408078.jpg (2.23 MB, 3200x5000, alisa-t6-wings.jpg)
Not sure if there are any Tekken fans here but Alisa's design was one that I never really liked. It's just so mismatched and randomly thrown together in such an eyesore way. It doesn't help that I don't like characters like her, the whole anime waifu robot.
File: 1663223490530.png (849.84 KB, 600x1067, Tekken7-alisa-new-costume-alis…)
Her new outfit introduced in Tekken 7 was a lot better. A lot more pleasing to the eye even though I still don't personally care for her as a character as a whole.
The most disgusting thing here is the presence of the child. You just know he's there so moids can draw porn between them, because big mommy + shota is one of their most blatant fetishes.
I've love pokemon since gen 1, but I think the older gym leader /trainer designs are way uglier and boring. I honestly only think a few of the new ones are too over the top (like big boots mcgee over there), overall they're way better now.
I've never liked legendaries so I don't care about their designs, but the regular pokemon have gotten better. Every pink pokemon in gen 1 is a round blob and most of them look the same with minimal differences: jigglypuff, wigglytuff, chansey, clefairy, clefable and exeggcute. And the rock pokemon were literal rocks like geodude and onix.

Tbh I actually really like this design. It reminds me of over the top scene/emo shit people drew on deviantart >>213471>uglier

I feel you nona. Her design is really cool from the waist up. >>242658
Every time I see the new Draculara design I hang my head in shame. She looks like the fat queer girls who dress colorful like this and then complain when people stare, kek
actually I'm really confused about this. I usually hate re-designs and reboots - Galaxy Girls still makes my soul ache - but the original MH designs seemed very soulless to me in a very bratz doll way. Here, the characters actually seem fun and more like they have some sort of inner life to them rather than just being copy-pastes of one another in different outfits and coloring.
They DO look more like Sims 4 characters though which is cringey.

Yeah, like I said, Sims vibes, kek, it's almost uncanny and the more I look at it, the worse it gets.
Picrel is an example of an old doll I really love way more than any of those redesigns, but the general art, etc., never appealed to me so I'm torn.

I don't go here (was already too old for the original series) but isn't Clawdeen supposed to be more of a cool and bold type ? Why does she look like an early 2010s Tumblr nerd ?
Draculaura looks like a teenage tiktok zoomer girls but these girls are openly skinwalking her OG self so fair enough I guess.
I think Cleo is a bit like Jade from Bratz in the sense that if you remove her bangs it removes a lot of her charm and style. IIRC there was a doll with a long bob hairstyle, maybe they should have given her this if they didn't want her hair looking too much like Draculaura's. Lagoona's curls were cute too, not sure why they decided to olaplex her

Wait are you saying in general? Or the new hairstyle? I actually quite liked this character existing because she went against the usual hyper feminine type women we get in video games so to see a woman character go against the stereotypes was so cool to see in my opinion. >>244788>>244789
Ah okay so it's the redesign. Yeah fuck that crap. Her old design is far superior because we got to see some bad ass bodybuilder woman who couldn't care less about looking feminine. So to see them do this to her is just awful.

I'm personally mixed on the design to be honest. With the context provided with how she's supposed to be a teenage edgelord, the design makes sense but the thing I don't like is the T-Shirt and I feel like a cami tank top would look better but I admit to being bias with that because I personally don't like wearing t-shirts kek.
Overall I suppose she looks fine and they succeeded in making a character who doesn't ooze high fashion couture like Bayonetta and Jeanne which makes her stand out.

Moira's design from the original overwatch has always bothered me. How do you manage to simultaneously create the most overcomplicated yet most boring design of the whole cast? Seriously why is it almost all black? Sombra is also overdesigned as fuck but at least she has purple blue and pink accents to break up the monotony (albeit ugly af color choices and I don't get why people like her design.
Her OW2 design is one of the few better designs compared to the first game imo, gives off much more mad scientist vibes that reflect her lore better (even though overwatch lore is shallow af)

Dammit this looks really good. Can't they do competitions and choose the artists with the most votes as the designers? Feel like PKMN designs look bad and uninspired for ages now save for a few exceptions per game.
tbh I really like Soundwave, Bumble Bee and Megatron. And Trash and Wheeljack are fine at least. Don't like the rest either and I hate the huge as hell heads the girls have.
Besides that I have to admit that I was actually positively surprised about that series, despite not being into that whole funny family stuff. But it was less annoying than TFP at least. I hated every single design in that show lol.>>255554

They took Kris' cute, functional design and made it disgusting coomer trash. I fucking hate Lyra so much, HGSS is the only Pokemon game I flat out refuse to play the girl character. I was a young teenager when HGSS came out and I felt this intense revulsion even then. I just knew they deleted Kris to appeal to coomers and it was the worst feeling.
Samefag but also the legs. Girly on the right actually looks like a poke trainer look at those legs! She is definantly ready to travel across the region.
The girl on the right is so waif and her clothes dont seem to show her preparedness for a tough journey just more like eye candy.

>>259380>Everything I dislike is coomerish
Neither of the designs are even remotely coomer unless you think shorts are coomer for some reason.
I honestly think both designs are very good in their own ways though, one reflecting 2000s tomboyish y2k fashion while the other reflecting 2010s girly Japanese fashion.
File: 1669803832864.png (2.11 MB, 3822x988, maincharacters.png)
Huge sperg incoming:
I love Kris so fucking much, probably my favorite female protagonist in Pokémon. However, even her design was distinctly "feminine" compared to Gold's: her body (how old were they in Gen 2? like 12? could blame it on Sugimori's style though), the fact that she's wearing shorter, skin-tight pants (why do girls have to wear that and boys get to wear wide, comfortable ones that don't show as much skin?), her pink Pokégear despite wearing red/yellow/white and having turquoise hair (basically pink is nowhere on her otherwise, plus the Pokégear was originally gray/black so they had to make a pink one because she's a girl), etc. But these are just massive nitpicks, I still love Kris despite being kind of disappointed by these little things since I first played Crystal. It's a shame that, instead of making the subsequent female protagonists look like this, like a cool female counterpart that's not much different from the boy protagonist, they have only been making them girlier and girlier and more distinct from the boys who always get to wear cool clothes and look cool (you know, like adventurers) in their official artwork. Not that I hate girly girls (I actually like Serena's default look a lot) but it's a problem when all of them are like that, and when half of their designs are so weak on top of that. But I guess you could also say that the boy protagonists are all samey and that's one redeeming quality of the girl protagonists.
I also love Hilda, even though she's clearly older and has a coomerish design but it's also rad, has a somewhat "American" feel to it and somehow manages to be more tomboyish than most of the other girls' so I'm kinda conflicted but w/e, maybe if she had longer shorts she'd be my fav. She's also one of the few female protags that get to wear a baseball cap, and one of the few protagonists overall with boots. May is one of my favorites too, and while her ORAS redesign is cute, it's still a downgrade from the original, and the art style doesn't help kek.
The one I hate the most so far has got to be Rosa, though. BW2 had some particularly atrocious designs for some reason. There seem to be some
improvements in recent female protag designs in recent years (LGPE, Masters, SV), though still nothing like Kris, or even May, but at least they're not as blatantly coomerish as some past designs.
Needless to say, I've hated Lyra's design since HGSS's new protagonist designs were revealed. I will never accept her as the Johto protagonist. """Ethan's""" design is also kinda shitty and inferior to the original Gold design but he at least resembles his original appearance. Lyra appears to have been designed from scratch.
You might find this article interesting: http://www.rigelatin.net/staircase/pokemon-playercharacters.php
(there's some enbie bullshit towards the end but otherwise it's a very fun article)>>259385
They really had no reason to replace her. I honestly think no one, not even waifufag scrotes, liked her design at first, save for a small percentage of fans. But also, most of the hate obviously comes from the fact that she's not Kris. For me, it's both that and that I hate her fashion sense.
File: 1669804757065.jpg (1.03 MB, 960x1272, vr3i7g8g9u191.jpg)
Honestly I think it just comes down to that they assumed kids would find Kris's design outdated, doesn't matter now though since both of them are used nowadays.
I forgot to mention how much I hate the zettai ryouiki shit seen in some of the girl protagonists. Leaf was already questionable with the miniskirt that rubbed me the wrong way even when I was a kid, because it doesn't look like something you'd wear going on an adventure, but I still loved Leaf because she had long brown hair like me.
But then Dawn happened. And it seems that's where the designes started to focus less on what's practical and more on displaying their girliness.>>259403
Yes, I mentioned that in my post, that the boys are more samey than the girls. But that's basically the only thing I like more about the girls' designs. And tbh the "boy = blue and girl = pink" standard affects both girl and boy designs negatively. Funnily enough I just noticed, that you can see that it was also in Gen 4 that this started to happen, from that point on the only boys that don't wear blue are redesigns of the older ones (Ethan and Brendan) and Victor (unless you count his jeans). Likewise, the only girls after Gen 4 that don't wear pink are Lyra, Gen 6 May and Selene.

>>259407>That's such a weak reason to replace her, because they could've just redesigned her
Fair point, either way I like both designs and how neither of them get ignored nowadays. >just like they did with Red, Leaf, Ethan, May and Brendan.
Leaf never really got a redesign, she just got sort of mashed with the concept art of the gen 1 protag and made into Green. Honestly Leaf probably gets treated the worst of all the female protags considering that she doesn't even show up if you pick the female protagonist in games where Red shows up like HGSS and SM.
Nate probably gets it the second worst though since Rosa is the shill character, but that's probably for the best since his design is hot garbage and probably the worst protag design not counting scarlet and violet.

>>259400>her body (how old were they in Gen 2? like 12?
I'm an underdeveloped womanlet and I looked like this at 12, and a bunch of female classmates lookes way curvier than that, no idea what you're trying to say here.
>the boys who always get to wear cool clothes and look cool
Only Red, Gold and the guy from BW1 gave me that impression, the rest look less cool and fashionable than their female counterpart. I actually like that they're distinct, you don't have to play as the girl just because you're a girl so being able to pick between two distinct choices in better imo. That's why I find the MC in SV bland as fuck. And if they wanted to make the school uniform in SV look like a scout uniform at least make it look more, idk, colorful or whatever. Anyway, in gen 6, 7 and 8 the issue you're talking about is solved thanks to the customization, even though the clothes in gen 7 are kinda shit compared to gen 6 and gen 8.
>>259408>Honestly Leaf probably gets treated the worst of all the female protags considering that she doesn't even show up if you pick the female protagonist in games where Red shows up like HGSS and SM.
Yes, this is a crime, it hurt so much when I was younger because I thought she was so cool yet neither she or Kris were so much as officially acknowledged. Not including her in the story could be excused in Gen 3 since those were the very first Pokémon remakes and it's understandable that they'd avoid adding too much that wasn't there before, but then in other games, they treat Red as the posterboy of the franchise and Leaf as if she never existed. However, Green/Leaf does appear in LGPE, and in Masters (just like Kris) she gets to be in the spotlight, and is even included in the Kanto trio along with Red and Blue, which is awesome.
This is getting off-topic though so we better move this discussion to the Pokémon thread lol
File: 1669807072590.png (411.17 KB, 576x1257, Black_2_White_2_Nate.png)
Actually what's up with Rosa and Nate looking like they're wearing swimwear under their clothes and yet it never comes up and is never used in any way in the actual game? Nate looks like he's wearing some surfer outfit underneath and Rosa looks like she has a bikini top.
They aren't, but practically all the girls wear hot pants or miniskirts. Why? Because they're girls, somehow that means that they must show as much leg as possible, while the boys don't ever wear something as short as that.
Also, Gen 5 was when they started to make the human characters more appealing to the coomers so it wouldn't surprise me that Hilda was at least partially designed with that intention (plus the BW protagonists are older teens).

this article is upsetting. it's funny yes, but as a lifelong pokemon fan i am just sad.
thing is, i love most of the female protag designs. it just… sucks to see them next to the male protag and have it pointed out how much skin they're showing, how they don't get to have a backpack, how they must now wear "girly" colored clothing. bleh.
I get you anon. Shorts are fine but it's pretty obvious why they usually put the female protag in shorts. The only time we saw a male protag wearing shorts was B&W but he was also wearing leggings undeneath them, meanwhile the girls are always barelegged. Dawn's winter wear is especially dumb and should at least be wearing leggings (if they really didn't want to give her pants).>>259966
is right that Scarlet & Violet did fix this which is nice even if the game is not exciting at all imo.

Mixed feelings about this. I guess I am getting kind of tired of people drawing a man and slapping titties on them? Muscular women usually look like leanbeefpatty or Monica granda, not like the one on the right, but I guess buff women rep is cool.

leanbeefpatty is unrealistic though? Most women wouldn't have that body type even if they got muscular. I lift and I look completely like the one on the right and Monica…ironically, they look similar so I don't know why you say otherwise.
Yeah my point is mainly that there's many, many differences between male and female anatomy that make it so that you can always tell, which is why troons never pass irl, and even tho a lot of female body builders are roided to hell and back, you can still tell they're women, and anyone calling them a "man" or "manly" is only doing so to insult them or to make a tasteless joke, not because that's what they actually believe. So what I'm trying to say is that I'm tired of artists just making a male body and slapping tits on it when everyone's always able to tell that's what they did, and it comes across as lazy and kind of insulting. >>260681
is also right and I agree with >>260656

To be fair it makes sense for her to be in uniform, you rarely see female characters this covered. Fanart deffo does her more justice in the muscle department. Idk if this is a good example, but at least you can actually see her muscles now.

More examples of women from Paldea. Why does woke pandering always result in the most shit designs ever… pokemon used to have cute designs, what happened?
The body types and ages are fine in concept but the graphics and designs are Metaverse tier soulless garbage with essentially zero art direction or vision. Pokemon exists only to promote new merchandise of the new pokemon that their loyal old cash cows and clueless little kids will buy so they get away with releasing an unfinished game that looks like it was put out by a Chinese knockoff mobile game studio, on purpose.
The 90s art was so sharp and edgy with interesting blocky shapes, colors, and recognizable style trends in the trainers’ fashions. Now it’s generic increasingly boring, roundified, thinktanked and consumer tested specifically to sell merch, like the Disney 3D round sameface style.
to be fair in real life men are much more likely to have luscious lashes–and yes, it's a thing, look it up. lashes defining "women" in animation has always been a conscious choice.
is this retarded? yes. am I right? yes.

Glad someone brought up this dude, his resemblance to Charlie is so uncanny it makes me suspicious. Sometimes I wonder if game companies pander to YouTubers on purpose because they know that it'll create memes like picrel. You might ask how Asian game devs would know about him, but there was that incident where an anime moblie game from China used footage of him to promote their game. Sage for tinfoiling.
You can't even say for sure they're making tranny chracters, they're just badly designed and the art style sucks so everybody looks even more shit. I agree with other anons that you sound like a scrote with your obsession with blaming "woke pandering" because the female characters aren't "cute" anymore, there's not a single canon tranny or even gay character in this game as far as I know. And if you think a couple of GNC female characters (the champion and that gym leader or whatever) are "woke" pandering, at least I welcome that kind of pandering because they didn't make them troons, just women with a masculine aesthetic (it's a shame that the champion's design is so horrible though).
Also I don't see what's wrong with the one on the lower right corner, it looks perfectly like a generic trainer from previous generations.

That's funny because I think the champion looks weird as fuck in her 2D artwork, if she didn't have that wild-ass hair and the art didn't look like a tumblr artist with no concept of depth had drawn it, it would be perfect. This looks amateurish to me>>260777>how the hell do the designs in SV look even remotely similar to the ones on the first gens?
I said they're not as deliberately sexualized as in recent gens (which seems to be the main reason moids everywhere are complaining as they also criticize the few perfectly decent designs there are), not that the designs are similar or even as good as in the earlier gens.

True, and I feel like that's why some characters like Piers look way better in fanart than in the actual game. Hey maybe the same artist designed both these characters, it would explain why they're both so skinny, the dumb hair and humongous eyes. I was so close to liking him but this guy looks malnourished in a cartoony way.

Yeah I like a couple of designs from SwSh, thtey're not all bad but sadly most of them are weird, stupid or ugly in some way. Like beforer the humans look boring and plain most of the time but now they're going the opposite extreme
What they did wrong for the human characters for me in Gen 8/9 is they tried to put too much
uniqueness into each character's design. Pokemon is known for having character designs with crazy hair and outfits but I feel like it wad always kept to a minimum of a couple defining features per character until Gen 8.
Kabu, Bea, and Milo look the best to me from these because they kept relatively simple I like Opal's design as well but she's the exception to the too-cluttered look for me simply because older people tend to dress like this kek
with a concise color pallet in their outfits. If they do
have an exaggerated feature it's limited to
to one thing eg.) Milo's hat or Bea's hair & bow thing.
All the other characters are too visually busy with over exaggerated features (big hair, coats, shoes, belts, etc.) all in one. While these elements aren't a bad way to make a character stand out I think having too many at once can ruin the design, like with Piers for instance. I've also noticed the clothing the gym leaders wear in these games have so much patterning and colors going on that it clashes and distracts from the character alone (though in character design the character's outfit is just as much who the character is as their physical features)
Sorry to pokemon sperg again I just can't seem to jive with the newest gens looks at all, they either look like they are too simple (in the case of some of the pokemon) or have too much of a cluttered design (in the important npcs and legendaries)
>>260859>If they do have an exaggerated feature it's limited to

It had always surprised me how much people like Milo, I hate his cartoony face and short legs, he doesn't look like a Pokemon character at all because of it

Maybe an easy target, but I despise the Equestria Girls designs.
> Same body for all of the girls which just happen to be stick limbs, of course
> Large inflated heads
> Clashing colors
> Bland and ugly clothing that just barely conveys their personalities
> Pretty much every girl has to have a skirt making them all look the exact same, again
As much as I despise a lot of parts of the MLP fandom, there were loads of better human designs made by the fans both before AND after the movie came out.

you can tell that Hasbro designed them as dolls first before giving them cartoon designs. I guess giving them all skirts was to give them some sort of coherence? Doll lines, specially the ones that has a movie tie-in, likes to have somewhat the same silhouette when it comes to clothing. Guess it makes it easier for the animators and doll manufactors.I don't think picrel are bad designs I only added it to show an example of another dolline that does this

There's a random anorexic alt girl in Godzilla: SP and I don't know why. She's a pretty minor character and doesn't really even get enough time to be coombait. Really stood out to me because she's so insanely thin.

I'm so fucking tired of seeing these drawn girls labeled as boys everywhere. They all have the same personality of outgoing/cheery or fragile/embarrassed moeblobs. There's nothing male about them but just anime girls with no boobs and a Schrodinger's dick. They know that coomers and moids would eat this shit up and make bank out of it because it's a special flavor waifu and 4 da memez. This trend needs to stop since it's plaguing over to bishie, twink and young boy characters.

my friends where really into Bratz Babies when we where children but it always made me uncomfortable. Just seeing babies in make up, fashionable outfits and long hair felt wrong. Watching this as an adult it still makes me uncomfortable. It's just weird that a toy is trying to appeal to some manternal instict while also appealing to the girls who wants to be fashionistas. It's not even a power fantasy since the targeted audience isn't toddlers. I'm just sureprised that someone suggested "then we make a song where they sing "gotta look hotter than hot" and then the babies start swaying their hips to hit while putting on make up" and that got greenlit. idk this is weird babies don't look like this babies don't behave like this

These fuckers all look like they have Down's
i hate their eyebrows.
i know that animators often rely on eyebrows for expression but im never not annoyed everytime i see them slapped on an animated anthropomorphic character that otherwise shouldnt have them, it looks terrible
The top left one's eyes aren't even looking in the same direction…>>263757
As always little girls have to make space for the little moids because they're going to get offended if this colorful pony cartoon doesn't have a moid horse they can relate to. Why can't moids relate to female characters like girls have been doing with male characters for ages?
Agree, I loved the softer colors and more whimsical "tea-party"-esque nature of MLP g1-3. I get that each generation of children will be into different things and nothing can stay the same but that is precisely the reason why I can't understand why they're back to doing the bright ugly saturated colors like they were doing in g3.5 and the later half of g3. At least g4 had a nice color balance between softer colored ponies and more vibrant ponies. Not to mention, the ponies were much cuter in comparison to what they're doing with g5. The g5 gang blends together in my mind. And, like I said, they're butt ugly kek.>>263768
Because moids "relate" to female characters by unnecessarily sexualizing them (the entire shitshow that was the g4 fandom). I think the solution is to go back to what they did with g3 and make it as female-pony-only and as "female" as possible. So many failmale bronies I've met irl have said that g3 was the worst. I never even had to ask them why they thought that, it's pretty obvious it's because it only had female ponies and because it was for young girls and young girls only

Oh my god I hate this. They all have the dreamworks eyebrows

I'm spergy as fuck but complaining is my hobby kek, I think everything about them is bad. The human faces give me uncanny valley and they're just not-horse enough that it makes them loose the appeal. Getting rid of the eyebrows would help combat it a tiny bit, but they should just redesign the entire head/face.
The color choices don't work together as a group in my opinion, the goal is to have them all be different enough that every kid can have their distinct favorite. But they picked similarish orange and yellow, and then similar pink and purple. And obviously it's subjective but in my eyes most of the shades they chose just clash and look bad, I especially don't like the magenta-pink on orange.
And sperging on, I hate the names too because they're again too similar. Pipp, Zipp and Hitch all have one syllable i- names that sound the same, and the other 2 have 2-syllable names ending in -y. That's bad naming, you want a mix of sounds and length to make them all distinct and easy to remember.
But still the worst crime is adding a male horse to the main crew. It's a girly show made for girls, let girls have their girl-focused shows without forcing in males. If boys like watching a girly show, they can most likely relate to the girl characters anyway which is something they usually don't have to learn to do because 99% of media panders to males.

She's apparently meant to be both a skillful archer and a bodybuilder, and yet looks like girl no. 3947394 from one of those idol gacha games. I usually like Mika Pikazo's work but everything in Engage looks like a fucking Vtuber and I hate it.

I genuinely cannot see the "racing" concept in that design, it looks far more "marching band" to me. At least 2022 was very clear with the concept

File: 1671400715995.png (2.31 MB, 1885x847, mikapikazo.PNG)
i just googled this artist and i do like her art but just quickly looking at her art she really don't look like someone who is qualified to be a character designer. Her art is quite stylish but the characters aren't memorable. every engage design just confirms that the artist have no idea what she is doing when it comes to character design. It looks like she was overcompensating the designs to justify her title as a character designer
Making a good character design is an artform in itself and you aren't automatically good at it just because you can draw well

same anon but this looks like an artist you would hire to do promotional work or posters. not one you would hire to do character designs. I wonder how the engage game devs felt like when they had to model the 3d models for the game

That's a good question, now I wonder too. Awakening and Fates had Kozaki as a character designer and his designs look great in 3D (pic related), which was already proven by No More Heroes before Awakening. He was tasked to make the characters give off a different vibe compared to the previous games despite being already familiar with the GBA games and he succeeded. Hidari also redesigned the characters from Gaiden for FE Echoes and made them all more distinct and they look good in 3D in actual gameplay, and the cutscenes look like shit for separate reasons. 3H's character designer is Chinatsu Kurahana who is already famous for doing character designs AND in-game art for BL games, and her designs for Utapri look good in 3D in more recent music videos. The issue in 3H is that none of the in-game art is done by her, her designs were botched by the art director (the same incompetent guy who managed to make Rinkah hideous in the mobile game and gave us the toilet bowl armor in Awakening). They all have experience in video game character design. IS now has the money and reputation to hire other experienced and competent character designers and they went with a twitter influencer artist. I instantly recognized the artists for Awakening/Fates and for 3H just based on 3D cutscenes and not even on their actual art, yet the characters in Engage are random moeblobs. I don't get it. Engage seems to have more detailed models and better animations than 3H, but it doesn't matter if all the characters look like hot garbage in the first place.

I love FE3H designs and i think the game deserved better in terms of character models and in game portrait art. I mean the entire game is pretty much unfinished in a lot of ways. Kurahana designed such a colour cast of characters and im still obsessed with all of them, 3 hopes designs also delivered. Its so disappointing to see engage throw all of that away for a vtuber artist when they could have made something even better than fe3h now that they have much more time and larger budget to work on the game.
Why is she blushing
Why does every female character have to be blushing by default>>264584
Seriously she looks like she can only design one or two types of characters. One girl with a plain hair color and another with two highly contrasting, highly saturated hair colors
I'm not very familiar with her, but even her original art looks better than those abominations in the new FE. She's just not fit for designing characters in a European-inspired medieval fantasy setting, much less one that has historically had a serious vibe like Fire Emblem.
Also the 3D models look worse than her art, what's with the chipmunk cheeks?
NTA but she's not good for designing anything that isn't overdesigned super modern harajuku/lolita/cutesy street/gyaru fashion with multicolored hair anime girls. it's why everyone says she's better off with vtubers, it's all she can design really. it became clear when she designed a character for fate grand order a couple years back and the end result looked like an abomination when compared to the rest of fgo's designs which is truly something else considering fgo's character design direction.
mika pikazo is just not a flexible artist. she can design one thing and one thing only. particularly what i hate the most is when in engage's cutscenes you look at the setting and the background and it all looks like normal medieval fantasy that could easily fit into any other FE game, but then one of those ugly ass characters step in and they look like they belong to an entirely different game. the characters literally don't match with the very background they step on to.
That’s her initial age. Miku’s age fluctuates based on the producer. >>264475
Coomerism aside I actually like this one.

ugh, the face shape…. it's not like they ever looked like actual ponies but the more upturned the nose gets the less horse-like they become. their noses are round like a reptile's, that's not even a mammal note anymore. their smile is creepy, probably more due to the eyes than the mouth though.

I know I'm beating a dead horse here with Fire Emblem Engage, but the 3D models are such poorly done interpretations of the 2D art. Their eyes and face shapes look so damn bizarre. The boring renders don't help because the lighting and costuming is bland and the posing looks so lifeless. They do look a lil better in motion at least from a review I saw. I'm not super impressed with the 2D art either. Maybe it's just not my taste. Is that their actual concept art or is it just promotional illustrations?

What is it with Japan and fire chickens
finally someone who understands.
anime only looks good in 2d because it's in an uncanny level between realism and cartoony. putting them in a 3d space only exacerbates that problem
I'm so glad someone else pointed her out. I watched DS a few months ago and I found the show pretty "meh". Good animation but story wasn't that interesting to me but Michuru's design was easily of the worst designs in the show imo. The boob window was explained like >>265788
mentioned but it doesn't make the design any less ridiculous.

Honestly the show was full of spastic behavior that was godawful. This guy was bad and so was the character Tengen (picrel). His constant use of saying "flashy", I groaned the whole time which sucks because I actually did like his design but his dialogue for the most part was awful.

Naruto character designs are very iconic and are immediately recognizable. I’ve never read or seen the anime or manga but despite that I’m able to name and recognize most of the characters. If Naruto dressed like a classic ninja so in all black with face covered it wouldn’t be as well remembered.

late reply but thank god you could at least equip the XOF outfit for her
on the topic of bad mgs designs, the female skull unit soldiers in V looked so fucking stupid
nta but they definitely knew what they where doing with her. She has pigtails and an oversized hoodie which does make her look more childlike but she also walks around in a bikini so she is suppose to be sexy. Studio Trigger
where also insisting on having a loli on the show. There is a clip where on of the crew members in the American department says that Studio Trigger
told them "the loli must stay"

I liked this series, but the character designs did suck. I can't think of a single one that stood out to me. Lucy's was particularly annoying because the crotch area looks like it would be so uncomfortable and tight in real life. Rebecca's colors were nice but that was about it, and I feel like Dorio deserved a way nicer design. Kiwi's was just ugly despite being the only fully covered one.
I genuinely don't mind skimpy character designs (to an extent) but you can't tell me that in a world like Cyberpunk's, the characters would have such boring styles. The edgiest thing the female characters could think of is to have their titties out? I don't get it. 'least Falco was hot.
I unironically think her artstyle would be great if Nintendo and Atlus ever greenlit a sequel to Tokyo Mirage Sessions. >>266853
We finally get Cammy to wear pants in her default design, but at what cost…?
Kek they could have just taken all that extra material from her sleeves then.
How old is she canonically? The uniform makes me think it's high school which would be creepy for a tailor to do that to a teenage girl but this is anime, after all.

She's 19. She's just designed like that for fanservice as other major female characters in the corps have more sensible designs (picrel). What I hate the most about anime that the characters are somewhat okay or even good but the designs ate just coomerish or plain retarded.
