Truth be told, I don't hate CGI (in fact, I find it to be just as gripping as 2D animation). It's just that I prefer 2D (which is what I want to specialize on), mostly because we're getting way too much CGI nowadays, and I think it's time to give the other two techniques a chance to shine (Laika and Aardman still do it with stop-motion).

I find it rather sad that more people are supporting 2d than CGI. Not every animated movie has to be 2d. I love both of them, and I just wish people would show more respect to cgi. 2 animation is NOT a dying form of art, if people still do it or remember it.

Traditional animation is the true ART form. Computer animation only goes so far in personal touches and true freehanded creativity. What's convenient today, isn't always the answer for tomorrow.
EpicAvocado Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014
Cgi animation is also a true art form. It takes more work than 2d
FiremanHippie Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well. You're right there. Plus it amplifies the 2d form of a classic character. Ex. The new peanuts movie, we've never seen Charlie Brown in CGI

I love all animation... but it feels like 2d animation is being abandoned

Good Ol' Traditional, Hand Drawn, Frame-by-Frame, Classical Cel Animation. Or in Other Words "Celmation"(a Funky New Word I've Discovered to Describe it).
TeamOogie Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2013
Amen to that! I'm animating an independent traditional film right now!
InsomniaQueen Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I like traditionally animated and 3D animated movies. Think about Pixar and Dreamworks. They have really great movies. But traditional Disney movies are wonderful too. But 3D animated TV shows usually are not that great. So over all, I'd agree that 2D animation is better.
Livington-Guy Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013
As i said, not every 2D animations are rich of quality. UPA and the later Hanna-Barbera by example...?

Thank you for making this stamp.:)

Yes, there are just some things that 2D animation can do the 3D cannot, such as comical scenes and furry lovable creatures
shadowcatGC Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2009
One of the reasons I stopped watching cartoons and instead watch anime or other foreign cartoons is because they look smoother than cartoons. I mean, if cartoons were still so smooth like they were.. I'd still watch them all the time!
Hedgehog-Rover Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2009
Even if this new hand-drawn Disney film was in theaters soon, animation art is dead since really longtime, i mean since the early saturday morning years. Why?

Because the affiliates channels made pressures to the studios for made new cartoons every year more faster and cheaper. The result wasn't better today. It fits with CGI animations and Flash animations with Flat characters designs like in Total Drama Island (Yuck!). What this art needs is more than bring back to 2D, but to something who have sense.

Great stamp BTW!
DarknessbUnnie Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2009
I tend to agree with the statement because Flash to me is one of the worst 'replacements' for hand drawn animation. There is no life nor is there a sense of creative freedom as nearly all the shows look like they were drawn with the shape tools rather than a design from the artist's hands.

I don't know but that's just me. :(
Hedgehog-Rover Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2009
You actually right. When you watch a cartoon made in Flash (ex: Jimmy Two-Shoes), you notice how the characters and backgrounds angular look. Unfortunately in Canada, it's the only way to made in Flash for avoiding animation imports.

Want a real hand-drawn animation made by heart? Try to look of the early Ren & Stimpy episodes from Spumco/Carbunkle Studios because they really know how animation work and many of this peoples worked before as bland cartoons in the 80's. So why it was a revenge to 25 years of bad saturday morning cartoons.
DarknessbUnnie Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2009
Which is why I miss handdrawn animation because 3D and Flash lack two things that no one seems to at least attempt to produce with those mediums; fluidity and movement.

FLASH animation, depending on the series, has a very cold and hard feel and one can easily see were the joints of the characters are placed on their bodies. Also depending on the show, they limit themselves with their color pallete where everything once again is limited to the tools available in the program. (Think of how a lot of shows have a bad gradient look to them that just doesn't feel in place with the rest of the series) 3D lacks emotion if people are just making models and nothing else and can also move stiff as well...

There just seems to be something missing from animation today but it inspiring to see that there are people out there that want to replace it and return animation to an art form rather than just something they can churn out to bore kids with...
Hedgehog-Rover Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2009
I know many peoples use Flash in their PC. If you want to learn animation, you can use Flash for practicing. But if you want to work for real...? It's not a bright idea. I don't have many experiences of animations personally because i don't have Flash (I have Adobe Reader but i don't use often) and i will happy to notice how my favorite animated stuffs are made by humans. Not by machines maniacs!

Oh yeah, the goddamn model sheets. What a creepy idea! I know by experience that even in comics they start to use model sheets for their stories. That wasn't like that in the golden age of comics because each artists having a individual style and we can see dozen of own characters styles but now, they force you to draw the same style without never improved in your personal work. That makes me really sad. It's not only in Animation the real problem are. But in comic too.
DarknessbUnnie Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2009
I wanted to show my support by faving both of your stamps but my thought still stands; as much as I love 3D animation, very few people can get it right with the exception of Pixar because, if what I heard is correct, they won't let anyone if they don't know a stich about handdrawn animation. With this type of policy, I can understand why a lot of their work and design has a much, for lack of better terms, toony and fluid feel while a lot of other studios produce lifeless and emotionless models that have less charisma than hand-puppets.

I hope that 2D makes its come back with the upcoming Princess and the Frog and Ponyo but for the time being, its nice to see that there are people who rather have a human touch in their work and art than leaving everything to the computer or just allowing the computer to put in the inbetweens ect.
LeaCross Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
ah! 100% agree with this stamp. As much as I love pixar films, I don't think every children's movie has to be computer generated 3-D XD
Dragonrider1227 Featured By Owner May 4, 2009
CGI Is awesome but you can't beat good ol' 2-D :clap:
HeavensChaos Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
There's so much 3D now...and not all of it is even good! Like no one tries. Old fashion 2D looks amazing to me!
galacticpink Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh Gawd, yes. I mean, 3d Animation CAN be good...but anime looks freaky in 3D (that recent Apple-whatsit movie, those anime eyes on that 3D body..>_> (Only saw previews for it).

Erm...yeah. XD

Heck yeah! Where have the good ole days gone? Disney, come back to your senses and make them like you used to! TLK! Bambi! Fox and the Hound!
Zavi Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2008  Student General Artist
I must fave this stamp!

I'm a huge fan of animation in general, but I think 2D animation needs growing support for its revival. Glen Keane put it well: it's nice to have the glitz and glamour of 3D detail, but you can't ignore the life of a character because of it.

Hopefully "The Princess and The Frog" will bring enough support to Disney that they'll rescue my favorite art form from its death. It's great to see people backing traditional animation! <3
EchoingWolfCall Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2008
YES! 2D animation for the win! I mean really, nowadays, only animated movies you see are all 3D animation and sure it can be an amazing thing but when one 3D animated movie is made after another, it just starts becomes overrated, worn out, and sometimes stupid. >.< And now....I must fav this.
Trounced Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Absolutely. I'm always happy to hear other people out there are ready for more 2D animation. =D Thank you for the favorite!

I cant really use this stamp because I am a 3d animator, I do think that we need to keep cartoon like animations around, there two different styles with different uses, one cant be used for everything
KaizokuShojo Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2008   Traditional Artist
Supa yay for 2-D animation~ :D

2D animation is a dying art form. It's sad, really. People are separating from the roots of most art.
