>>40057220>Otherwise it looks like he’s staring upwards.>how do highlights work
I can't handle the absolute level of retardation it takes to look at something that's clearly intended to have animalistic eyes and think the highlights are supposed to be white pupils. Do you think this squirrel is looking upwards?
Now I understand why Morpeko broke the eye type pattern for pikaclones, brainlets like you need the white highlight to actually be a pupil in the middle of its eye. No wonder this series is going to shit so fast.>>40057272>switched to computer animation, which has so many more tools to make quick adjustments and fix any potential anatomy issues in meer minutes>unironically looks worse than back when everything was 100% handdrawn and painted
It's also not like they can't pay their animators to sit there a bit longer and make proper adjustments with the goddamn lasso tool. That edit took me less than 30 minutes and that covers all the key frames for that scene.
Not to mention,>Don Bluth films: exist>Character reference charts: exist>even trash shows like Steven Universe are one-upping SM in animation>Yokai Watch, the anime this style is trying to emulate, still maintains correct human character anatomy for its characters without turning into blobs
Again, TPCi isn't a poor kids network they have the money to do it right and the resources of an entire country full of great animators. They're cutting corners where they really shouldn't be but don't care because nobody is calling them out on it and brand loyal retards just keep on buying anyway and will defend TPCi to their death.
