That was exactly what pretty much as bad/dumb as I thought it’d be.
“Historically speaking, animating female characters are really, really difficult, ’cause they have to go through these range of emotions, but they’re very, very — you have to keep them pretty and they’re very sensitive to — you can get them off a model very quickly. So, having a film with two hero female characters was really tough, and having them both in the scene and look very different if they’re echoing the same expression; that Elsa looking angry looks different from Anna being angry.” — Lino Disalvo on animating Frozen, explaining (essentially) why they removed all the female supporting characters and replaced them with men. [[edited for accuracy]]
Yeah, I call bullshit.
don’t blame women because you’re a shitty animator
so basically what you’re saying is
"it was too harddddddd I didn’t wannaaaaaa."
"i dont care enough about women to animate them like reeeaaal peopleeee"
No. You don’t understand. You’re all ignorant fuckwads. Let me explain you a thing. Female faces? They’re softer. As in regardless of bone structure their faces are SOFT looking. Because of this, light bends differently and catches angles differently and the what not. Its harder to animate/draw/paint the female form, as any artist. It’s the same issue with babies- the SOFTNESS of the figure makes it harder to art them. And now I’m done with this tangent flies into the sun.
As evidenced by all of these guys with soft faces
none of whom are impressed by your sexist bullshit
female skin is NOT different from male skin, biologically
female skin isn’t softer, you’re just trained to think of it that way by media and our societal expectation that women use make-up to MAKE their skin look softer, which has not been done all throughout history and thus doesn’t actually make any sense in a movie set in a historical time period when nobody expected anybody to have flawless skin
the problem isn’t animating women
the problem is animating women to look like an ideal while still keeping them diverse
If animators treated women like humans beings they wouldn’t have this problem
look at all of these soft faces
Don’t even fucking talk to me about Kadaj
This gifset is making you look as sexist as you are, say cheese!
Look at Shrek and Fiona next to each other
It doesn’t matter if they’re humans or ogres
their skin is animated exactly the same
Same for Lem and Neera
OH WOW HER SKIN IS SO MUCH SOFTER AND MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN HIS are you fucking kidding me with this
Basically fuck you
This is amazing.
Also I quite often have teachers tell me I need to down grade the way I draw noses and eyebrows and such on women. Draw less lines and details on women, they must all be beautiful and soft looking. I’ve actually had a teacher say: that’s why anime is so successful because the eyes are so big and they hardly even draw the nose. It’s appealing and should be used when always drawing women and children. AND THIS IRRITATES ME SO MUCH. I know it sells but I don’t want that. I want diverse, REALISTIC and different women with big noses and bushy eyebrows. With cheekbones and square jaws even. Not every female has a tiny, perfect nose, round features and perfect soft skin. arrrrrg
I.. I’m just so happy that people are using both 3D and traditional animation in this post about animation… it’s so wonderful to see… thank you ;_;
All this delicious animation talk belongs on my dashboard.
it got better
"females have softer faces" PSSSSSHHH yeah the fuck right maybe in fiction land where everyone fits the archetype nicely
Baby soft.Come on guys, we can’t reasonably expect Disney employees to be aware of the existence of angular, hard-faced women
THINGS THAT ARE NOT OKAY
THINK ABOUT THIS BEFORE YOU DECIDE A POKEMON IS WEAK AND KICK IT OFF YOUR TEAM WOW
