Bruce Timm returns to direct Batman in this incredible new animated short. I can’t express how much I love this and would have posted it sooner, if I wasn’t busy watching it over and over and over…
I’m posting this once again… Just in case you missed it the first time!
i just read this comic where a dude got engolfed by another dude’s massive penis and ugh this is not the way to start your weekend.
seriously, the amount of detail and animation in ROTG is just AMAZING, I felt like I could reach out and feel the fabric of their clothes, of Tooth’s feathers and oh my god , these people are amazing.
Tooth’s feathers have this purple sheen on the lower half of her body and it’s only apparent when her knees are bent or the angle is right
And Jack has kinda splotchy skin and scraggly canine teeth and salt and pepper eyebrows
AND TOOTH HAS FLAWLESSLY MANICURED NAILS
THIS MOVIE IS GORGEOUS
DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE PARTICLE EFFECTS FOR ALL THE SAND
This movie is a masterpiece I love it so much
RotG is synonymous for stellar animation. Honestly, I know it was a “flop” at the box office, but insofar as animation, RotG really is leaps and bounds ahead of the competition, and has given Dreamworks an animation software arsenal that Disney refuses to invest in for their cookie-cutter character designs. That is the upside of Dreamworks being the ‘underdog’ studio: because they have to go up against a monster, they’re constantly trying out new things, and sometimes, they hit a goldmine like RotG - if not in monetary figures, in artistic achievement.
You can tell that DW has been using some of the software developed for RotG in HtTYD2, particularly where skin is involved. I’ve heard talk of new programs made for HtTYD2 involving the simulation of skin/tissue/fat (as well as some others - was it lighting, or fur, or both?) and the effort shines through in the footage they’ve released so far. Although the subject material is the same and the style is the same (to a certain extent) the software of HtTYD2 is a huge step up from its predecessor, and I’m willing to bet that a portion of that comes courtesy of the developers of RotG.
And yet people still say Frozen was the best in animation despite it’s numerous animation errors and cookie cutter faces.
