Re: Just how much better are the Blu-rays than the Orange Bricks?

I don't think they're a particularly substantial improvement if you already own the Orange Bricks. I feel like for every issue the Blu-rays fix, they add in another of their own. For example, the Orange Bricks have line art vanishing in some places, while the Blu-rays' line art is smeary everywhere ...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

Just for a bit of fun, I put together a grid showcasing the styles of most of the supervisors from this recent arc: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DaYqGjhW0AE1lHr.jpg:large The rule was to only use shots from this arc, with the exception being Karasawa's Vegeta since he never actually drew him in his b...

Re: Does Dragon Ball Series Have deleted , extended footage?

Yeah, most likely. It's not too uncommon to have scenes chopped down to fit the designated runtime for the network. I think one example from early on is a shot of Vegeta shown in the preview at the end of episode 7 that never actually shows up anywhere in episode 8. You also have the Beerus and Cham...

No because they're not the same designs, they're just stylistically similar. You could also point to the Nippon Ijinn Taosho from 2007 as another example of a similar approach.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

I have to say, a smile alone really does not make Goku look like Luffy. The particular shot under scrutiny here features a facial expression that's literally all over the manga. It's a stock Goku expression - a smile with a slight upturn at the side. https://i.imgur.com/p6bslKC.png https://i.imgur.c...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

What I don't understand is, for example in the Ajay's video I shared he praised 114 art for his take on Z designs, specially the difference that a more realistic shading that goes with the face proportions can do compared to current Yamamuro approach, but this teaser has absolutely no cheek shading...

Re: Official "DB 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

No, it's so that the computer can easily detect and replicate shapes for animation and transitions and do the work for them automatically. They save a lot of time and money that way, but the drawbacks are obvious. It's cheap, in the truest sense of the word. This is entirely untrue. Please don't ma...

I think the vast majority of replies say it all, really.

This isn't a platform for organising targeted harassment because you're upset over a comic.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

I guess I fail to see how Yamamuro is not liked at the moment. His work is on model, which is something everyone's complained about which Super was lacking. BoG and F (movie versions) had fluid movement and looked perfectly in line with typical Dragon Ball Z fight choreography. Does this new pictur...
