just put that many images in your post?
It doesn't really matter.
Besides, you'd feel the need to do that when someone comes along and ignorantly states that CGI is soulless.
Cel animation (short for Celluloid animation) is another way of saying "traditional hand-drawn animation". It is not to be confused with Cel-shading, which by the way, can be done FANTASTICALLY if done by the right people,
I've seen some great cel-shaded games, but they've thus far looks rather crappy or bland in a cartoon. Just saying, Transformers hasn't had the best history with cel-shading.
We haven't had the best history with hand-drawn animation either. Armada, many parts of Animated, and (ugh) G1 are prime examples.
Now, if you were to talk flash, such as MLP and Rescue Bots, then we'd have some fun.
Prime's animation is the best animation I've seen period.
No other cartoon has done what Prime has done, with that much detail in movement and texture
involved in their animation. The team worked their asses off on that show, and deserved those multiple
Daytime Emmy Awards for animation.
It's one thing to say you don't like CGI. It's another to say that it downright sucks. You'd appreciate it more if you had to animate that kind of show. With as many frames a second that you have to time in order to make smooth, you'd spend years
Also my hopes for this series are set LOW. If being geared towards younger audiences means more toys designed for the mentally challenged chimps, I think I'll pass.
If Hasbro comes through with a Roadbuster done similarly to Whirl (in that they're based on their old Ovelon Gazzette and Mugen Caliber designs) I think I'll be able to throw in the towel with Transformers altogether. I'll be done, finished.
If Hasbro does anything like Whirl again, I'll have to burn the toy aisle. That thing is the ugliest shit I've seen this year. Mash'ems look better than him.
