>> No.5582892

With pixel art is you design the characters/objects to fit the pixel grid. E.g. Mario has a mustache because there wasn't space for both a nose and a mouth in the original sprite, but a single pixel high mustache implies a mouth. OP animation was obviously animated first and then forced onto the pixel grid, as shown by the aliasing. Pixel art has no aliasing by definition (any stair-stepping is an intended part of the artwork).

Hand placing pixels is not a requirement for pixel art.
>non-integer ratio scaling
Pixel art is art where the pixels are intended to be squares/rectangles instead of point samples, and the image is designed around the pixel boundaries.

Because animation is hard it's less an issue of money and more about time. It also depends heavily on who is animating and how much time they have to work with. Some animators like lots of frames on their actions, some animators like adding a lot of extra detail, some just like doing a lot of low-detail frames to get more actual movement in at the expense of visual fidelity. Sometimes you get somebody who does all of them at once. That and just pouring a lot of frames into something doesn't necessarily make it well-animated. A lot of anime do exactly what you're asking for and go "this is the important shot" by adding more frames on something that isn't really enhanced by it.

TLDR scheduling is important than money and talent is stretched extremely thin. Having high-detail cuts is the easiest way to impress people but personally I'll always take a more dynamic scene over something that's fluid or high detail but boring.

On one end of the scale you have stuff that turns into low-detail scribbles because that's the animator's style, on the other end of the scale you have stuff like Lodoss War which people remember as having great animation purely because of its really high-detail character art, but you can basically count the number of scenes that aren't a bunch of still frames sliding around on one hand after the first episode. Retro games are kind of like that, outside of fighting games and outliers like Metal Slug you have a lot of games that have nice sprites but fuck-all animation to go with them. Modern games these days tend to prioritise fluid animation over highly detailed sprites. I don't think it's a bad trade unless your art style is ugly as fuck.

that is pretty amazing that they were able to pull that off without prerendering, but also I wonder why they bothered. one of the underappreciated aspects of 2d artwork is that its movement follows 2d logic. since this so perfectly behaves like a 3d object, it might as well have been. the simplification of movement would have been more graceful.

3rd Strike is peak pixel art and animation, and nothing will top it.

>> No.5597305

Welcome to 4chan, everyone is incompetent but acts like they're better than you.

>> No.5597378

The assholes will disagree with you since 3rd Strike's animation was done by sketching om paper first and even some rotoscoping of video footage.

>> No.5597428

Alright, let's see:
- Pre-rendered sprites are not pixel art.
- Drawing the animation by hand on paper, scanning it and cleaning the result is not pixel art.
- Drawing on paper as a guide and then looking at it while you draw on the computer is not pixel art.
- Making a 3d model, animating it and painting over it is not pixel art.
- Filming someone doing the moves and rotoscoping them is not pixel art.
Conclusion: pixel art is one guy sitting in front of his computer drawing pixel by pixel with a mouse and no external references. Did I get it right?

Disney did it all the time and their movies and shorts look great. Anime may be great at action scenes, camera pans, and machinery, but nobody will ever be able to beat classical american or pre-weeb euro studios at character animation

Have you seen in-progress Capcom sprites? They look like this. It's clear that they were drawing pixel-by-pixel on the computer, using scanned lineart only as a guide. Every pixel you see in the finished sprite was placed by hand.
