Post the worst of the worst character designs you can find. From the uncannily realistic to terrible reboots to oversexualized. It doesn't matter if it's from movies, TV, video games, comics, just has to be awful.

Inspired to make this thread today because I saw this, words cannot explain how uninspired and lazy this looks. This is apparently a reboot(?) sequel/continuation of How to Train your Dragon. It takes place in the 'modern' age where dragons are coming back to live with humans, even though they established in the last movie why that was a bad idea.

Idk what it is but the main dragon looks awful, I think it's supposed to be a descendent of Toothless and the white dragon, but the coloring makes it look freakish for some reason. The other dragons look even more out of place, all the awesome sharpness of the og designs is lost here. Everyone else looks like they were ripped from stock 3D character asset packs. It's a shame, HTTYD was one of DreamWork's best franchises too, but I won't let this spoil the other movies for me.

Earwing could have been a lot better if only they bothered to work with the lights and toned down the expressions a bit. The faces are even more exaggerated than 2d Ghilbi movies, I don't get why they went for more cartoony ones. Some shots and promotional images even look good (I think picrel is pretty acceptable), maybe they had a low budget?

The sad thing about Earwig is that I think the designs were interesting and the planning sketches and all that were pretty cool, but they translated it horrible into 3D. Everyone looks like they're made of playdoh and the shading was weird throughout the movie.

Sucks to say, but I don't think Miyazaki's kid really has a talent for animated movies. Earwig was fine, but he's not a gifted animator, and by that I mean that his work doesn't feel inspired and passionate.

This guy's genuinely fucked too.

As you can see here >>191746 the body the purple boa girl is holding is posed like one of Dahmer's victims. He also makes the decapitated heads have an ahegao expression. He was a brony too.

No. 202751

>>202699
Nta but yeah basically. Apparently he was never a good father, his son was pressured to get into animation and he already had a huge pressure on him (being Miyazaki's son) and his father barely even helped him with his movies. He was made to direct Earthsea with little to no previous experience and then Hayao had the guts to go see it, walk out in the middle of it (rude fucker) and call it trash (no shit).
As for Earwig, if you know the context you'd know that it's impressive it even got made. It's based on an incomplete novel and in Japan is was actually meant to be some sort of TV special instead of a full movie (which explains why or ends so suddenly and the pace is a bit weird). It is also Ghibli's first try at a fully rendered CG movie so the weird textures and expressions can be excused (kinda) and the team was mostly made up of novices. You really can't expect the quality level of a regular Ghibli movie when you have a poorly experienced director with daddy issues, a brand new medium and not a lot of skilled animators. I did appreciate the soundtrack in Earwig though, I thought the rock-ish sound was a nice change from the usual Ghibli music.

gonna go in an autistic rant
every time i see this anime i just get so depress. At its best it's a series that explores the concept of adopted families and the affects a parent can have in a child's self esteem. At worst it's a dumb pedobait hiding in the guise of yuri.
The girl in the left makes me the most depressed. She's a dragon that gets summoned by a little boy. Aside from the obvious disgusting pedo undertones, there was one scene in the manga I really enjoyed. He goes in this witch tournament test thing and he gets bullied by the other kids and due to him being quiet in nature just takes it all. He gets scared in the trials and mess up every now and then. He was clearly struggling and there was the green haired girl cheering him on which gives him a little hope and for the first time in years actually passed the test. It's later futher revealed that the kid's dad doesn't really acknowledge his existence and that's why he's always trying to do things to impress him (like summoning the green haired girl) but he gets no recognition or appreciation what so ever. He has a mom but due her not being a witch, she can't really help nor does she really try.
He tells her that he appreciates the time she took in watching over him and supporting him in an area that his parents couldn't.
and i love that.
i wish that was more of that.
i wish this manga continued exploring that. but it doesn't and made an entire dragon mating scene instead.

The cleavage looks cheap and it doesn't fit the cute and innocent vibe she's going for at all. They took what could've been a perfectly cute design and ruined it, it makes me mad.

Ivy's design from Soul Calibur 4. Yeah I'm SC fan and this design of Ivy's was always one of my most least favorites ever. I understand that she's the sex symbol of the series and always wore provocative outfits but this look here was one of her absolute lowest and overall one of the tackiest outfits I've ever seen. I wouldn't even call it an "outfit" kek
Again, I understand she was a coomer design from the start but out of all the designs she's had, this one is the one I loathe the most. Which sucks because she's an interesting character in terms of the story for the series.

I guess the pattern is I hate overt stripper designs in action games because it's cheap and breaks the immersion for me and Rachel's is easily one of the biggest offenders of it. Even when I saw her design as a 14 year back when the first NG Xbox game came out, I thought it was gaudy.

Kitana from MK9 specifically. Again, coomer design from the start (somewhat) but this one is easily my most least favorite look of hers while it's unsurprisingly the favorite of a lot of moids. The thing I hate the most about this design is that it just looks like it was thrown together in 5 2-3 minutes. There's no cohesion and just no style and her alternate costume in this game wasn't any better.

She got a major glow-up in MKX with an outfit that actually looked nice imo.

(Anon you replied to) I love that one too, that's one of her best alts! But I also liked her alternate from SoulCalibur 3, I thought that look was very pretty and fitting for Ivy's character perfectly, at least more so than any of her dominatrix themed outfits anyway.
Like I know coomers are gonna coom but I wish that they just ditched the dominatrix thing and followed suit with the alternate from SC3 and build from that.

I think I'll add Ivy's SC6 look to tacky designs as well. The outfit is supposed to be a recreation of her look from the original SoulCalibur 1 on the Dreamcast (on the left) and while that look was already on the provocative side, at least it looked like it fit on her. Granted this was back when her breasts looked more or less proportionate before they made them huge but yeah, it looked okay-ish. But they went ultra coomer with the redesign making the chest piece not fit her bust and expose more of her abdomen. It's just a tacky design and it doesn't help that we didn't get any alternates this time around in the game neither.

You're absolutely right anon. ALL the female characters were dressed like pornstar meets strippers and it's kinda insulting lol. Sonya's is the closest to wearing something of an actual outfit. Like honestly all she needed was a matching black tank top worn under the vest and she'd be good to go.
But I guess Kitana's got to me the worst because she's supposed to be seen as a princess type of character and like, how does a look like that convey "princess"? to anyone? I swear this is why I hate a lot of moid who design with their dicks and not with their brains.

Aw I like the 4th one if you're talking about the 2004 design on the bottom left corner. I'm bias though because technically Stand Alone Complex/2nd Gig was my first exposure to Ghost in the Shell, I was too young when the 1995 movie came out to have known about it in the 90s and I didn't get into manga reading until about 2005. I do think the '95 movie is a striking look and I'm glad they weren't trying to make her look like a generic sex barbie unlike what's going on with Ilya's design. She looks so generic and lifeless. I mean I get she's not human but come on kek.

All the other female characters were fully clothed and then there's Hunter going around blowing up people with a rocket launcher while dressed in a thong.

pokemon legendaries are pure garbage and have been for years. actually i didn't mind the wolf pair in swsh because their designs complemented each other way more than past "paired legendaries" for me. maybe because i could actually tell they were supposed to be a sword wolf and a shield wolf instead of some overdesigned confusing mess. beyond that, the power creep is insane. they have to keep making legendaries/pseudo-legendaries stronger and stronger to compete in the meta and it's absurd. soon we'll get a legendary with base 300 in every stat.

It’s weird to call this a “vore bird” when it’s based on a cormorant, which are birds that absolutely stuff themselves to the point they can’t fly if they get enough fish. It’s a cute and silly theme. Calling it “vore bird” makes me think they need to go outside and away from the computer for awhile.

I hate a lot of new Pokemon designs but Cramorant is one of the few I like. I never thought about vore when I looked at it but I can't blame anon for that being her first impression since the fandom is absolutely cancerous and pornsick, "vore" is no longer an obscure porn thing only few online circles know about and is now widely joked about, and GameFreak has a track record of pandering to furries, coomers and weirdos.

I fucking cannot stand this style, it's like the default for most cartoons on cartoon network these days and I miss the days of the late 90s and early 2000s where you saw so much more variety in cartoon styles. You'd have something like The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy to Xiaolin Showdown and Ed, Edd, N Eddy and Courage the Cowardly Dog. It's depressing that 15 years later and we're stuck with this garbage. It's like mainstream character design in terms of art style got so much lazier and it makes me grateful I grew up in the late 90s to early 2000s for animation.

Femboy designs can be VERY hit or miss and most aren't very good. In fact when it comes to anime, most have terrible designs and the only one I actually like that comes to mind is Haku from Naruto.

My theory is that they all want the insane attention and success that Adventure time/Steven universe got and are too talentless to try anything new, they just want to churn out the Next Big Cartoon. Cartoons are also probably having a bit of a crisis since more and more kids are turning to YouTube channels and tiktok for entertainment. Neither of my nieces grew up with any interest in cartoons, only Disney teen shows and now tiktok.

Beanmouth style is so overused now because it's easier to animate and some popular cartoons in the early 10s used a similar style so it's what gets pushed in American animator schools to churn out mediocre animators who only know the bare minimum (sometimes not even that) and can only work with the style that's currently the industry standard. From what I've read, if you try to attend an animator's school in the USA, especially CalArts you'll realize that their goal is to get rid of artists' own unique personal style, because they don't want innovators, they want people who can copy the most generic, soulless and (most importantly) cheap artstyles because that's what works and so they can pay animators less, plus now there's more demand for CGI/3D animators so we are stuck with beanmouth style in mainstream American cartoons. Disney may have higher standards than other studios because well, they're fucking Disney and have a reputation to uphold (and profits to make from that reputation), so their cartoons can look decent despite having the same style (e.g. Gravity Falls, Star vs) but if you look at Cartoon Network 2D shows, you'll quickly realize that they have absolutely no quality control (e.g. Steven Universe, Craig of the Creek). They give no fucks, as long as it's easy to produce and gets popular enough to generate a profit, even better if it happens to become wildly popular.

Childrens cartoons are more aimed towards adults than anyone anyway. I'd argue even starting with Adventure Time era. Now cartoons are just self inserts of the creators, long continuing plotlines most children don't give a shit about, and agenda-pushing morals of the story.
Remember how cartoons used to be 15 min snippets, designed for children's short attention spans? And there was always a resolution in the end? There's barely any of that anymore. These cartoons are just a way for creators to sniff their own farts. They don't care about a child audience and it really shows.

AYBRT, you guys made great points and I agree. It really does seem like these days western cartoons are more preoccupied by having self-inserts with "deeper" story narratives then just you know, telling a story and having fun. I can't help but feel like Avatar The Last Airbender was the starting point though don't get me wrong, I fucking love that show and it doesn't feel like something that is a creator's self insert but what I mean is the drive for cartoons to have continuing plot-driven narratives.

And what we're seeing with this UGLY and frankly lazy looking animation style that is the CalArts style, the creators don't care about the visual creativity of the show and are more about unleashing their ego and sometimes agenda into their cartoons that like you said, kids won't give a shit about anyway.

Again I'm glad I got to grow up with cartoons like Hey Arnold, Ed Edd n Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Powerpuff Girls, Fairly Odd Parents, and so much more. Cartoons that didn't have deeper narratives and were just silly hijinks and episodic.

I don't hate narrative driven cartoons, like I said I loved ATLA but I just miss the variety in both the nature of the shows as well as art style and I can't wait for the CalArts style to die off and we see a return back to stylized cartoons in different art styles.

I finally got around to watching Demon Slayer after putting it off for years and I just finished the arc with the Spider Demon family and this character has stuck in my head for quite some time after. On the one hand I love her pale white color scheme but it's the big ass boobs that really bring her design down for me. I'm not saying that women being drawn with huge breasts is wrong or anything like that but there's just something lowkey coomer about the design that irks me. Especially with the added in context that she's supposed to be a child who took on the form of an older women to play the "mother" role which is kinda creepy. Like the concept is interesting but go for the coomer "milf" look?

At the very least I appreciate that they didn't really grossly objectify her by focusing on her breasts or having her get into ridiculous angles or positions just to perv on her.

All of them are so overdesigned but I felt like there was no effort put into Charlie at all.

I very much preferred her pilot design tbh. She has a more friendly, cheerful and easy-going look that fits her personality and character way better than her redesign. Don't really like her eyes red all the time instead of those dark puppy dog ones. Her eyes are better off red when she's going in demon mode. For her pants, the black one contrasts well with her top rather than having it completely red. For her hair, it looks better with a single tie at the end making it look loose and flowy than having it tied twice which looked pretty stiff. Not really a fan of the redesigns except for Vaggie. They all just looked watered down and unnecessary.

Think I dropped it when they introduced the loli since I was already fed up with the other characters before and couldn't stomach seeing them checking the next otaku harem fetish option. I haven't even seen (or don't remember) the first girl in your pic, I hate that design the most I think.

God, as an eternal .hack fan I enjoyed GU but I was so disappointed about the characters after being used to the style of the old games, .hack//SIGN and all of the novels that had a good bunch of adult characters and explore the protags properly without relying on memes and cliches. Gameplay and everything is much better in GU, but they tried too hard to be cool and mainstream, ditching the classic .hack character writing and settling for stereotypes and -dere characters. And yeah, designs as that of Pi don't make it better.
I especially dislike erotic fashion when I get the impression that the look doesn't match the personality. This is of course very subjective, but Pi came off as the seemingly cold and distanced type who rather analyses than acts and I can rather see her choosing a traditional Japanese design or something professional and decent looking for her PC. Her clothes come off as exaggerated, like something I would expect from a female player killer or a male player playing a female character.

Not sure if there are any Tekken fans here but Alisa's design was one that I never really liked. It's just so mismatched and randomly thrown together in such an eyesore way. It doesn't help that I don't like characters like her, the whole anime waifu robot.

Remember when Pokemon was a normal urban fantasy story/game with fantasy species cohabiting with normal people in our world? Even the regions feel more like theme parks than just France or Hawaii or Spain. I get that gen1 to 4 were based on Japanese regions and the devs are Japanese so there was going to be some sort of disconnect in regions based on other countries but still. It's not just the character design that became over the top. Gen 6 has ok character design where the MCs, professor and gym leaders looks mostly normal, gen 7 was a little more over the top while still being reasonable and looking like a Pokemon game, but it gets progressively worse, I don't get it. iirc the original character designer doesn't design humans at all nowadays, maybe that's why. Or they think that now that they can create HD 3D models they can do whatever they want without any hardware limitation, who knows.

I've love pokemon since gen 1, but I think the older gym leader /trainer designs are way uglier and boring. I honestly only think a few of the new ones are too over the top (like big boots mcgee over there), overall they're way better now.

I've never liked legendaries so I don't care about their designs, but the regular pokemon have gotten better. Every pink pokemon in gen 1 is a round blob and most of them look the same with minimal differences: jigglypuff, wigglytuff, chansey, clefairy, clefable and exeggcute. And the rock pokemon were literal rocks like geodude and onix.

Yeah I think that's partly why. Sugimori stopped being the sole human character designer in Gen 5 I think. Then of course the wider Japanese character design trends were popularized (as can be seen in anime, gacha games, and Vtubers in the last few years) and now Pokemon and FE also inevitably suffer from overdesigned pieces of shit.

actually I'm really confused about this.

Draculaura looks like a teenage tiktok zoomer girls but these girls are openly skinwalking her OG self so fair enough I guess.

I think Cleo is a bit like Jade from Bratz in the sense that if you remove her bangs it removes a lot of her charm and style. IIRC there was a doll with a long bob hairstyle, maybe they should have given her this if they didn't want her hair looking too much like Draculaura's.

I'm personally mixed on the design to be honest.

Moira's design from the original overwatch has always bothered me. How do you manage to simultaneously create the most overcomplicated yet most boring design of the whole cast? Seriously why is it almost all black? Sombra is also overdesigned as fuck but at least she has purple blue and pink accents to break up the monotony (albeit ugly af color choices and I don't get why people like her design.

Her OW2 design is one of the few better designs compared to the first game imo, gives off much more mad scientist vibes that reflect her lore better (even though overwatch lore is shallow af)

Neither of the designs are even remotely coomer unless you think shorts are coomer for some reason.

Lyra's not really coomer but I understand what you mean, you are right that it is a shame we didn't get a more tomboy playable female mc that we originally got because older gamefreak designs were sharper, and since things became cleaner they wanted to make the female mc more girl because girl = girly.

Huge sperg incoming:
I love Kris so fucking much, probably my favorite female protagonist in Pokémon. However, even her design was distinctly "feminine" compared to Gold's: her body (how old were they in Gen 2? like 12? could blame it on Sugimori's style though), the fact that she's wearing shorter, skin-tight pants (why do girls have to wear that and boys get to wear wide, comfortable ones that don't show as much skin?), her pink Pokégear despite wearing red/yellow/white and having turquoise hair (basically pink is nowhere on her otherwise, plus the Pokégear was originally gray/black so they had to make a pink one because she's a girl), etc. But these are just massive nitpicks, I still love Kris despite being kind of disappointed by these little things since I first played Crystal. It's a shame that, instead of making the subsequent female protagonists look like this, like a cool female counterpart that's not much different from the boy protagonist, they have only been making them girlier and girlier and more distinct from the boys who always get to wear cool clothes and look cool (you know, like adventurers) in their official artwork. Not that I hate girly girls (I actually like Serena's default look a lot) but it's a problem when all of them are like that, and when half of their designs are so weak on top of that. But I guess you could also say that the boy protagonists are all samey and that's one redeeming quality of the girl protagonists.
I also love Hilda, even though she's clearly older and has a coomerish design but it's also rad, has a somewhat "American" feel to it and somehow manages to be more tomboyish than most of the other girls' so I'm kinda conflicted but w/e, maybe if she had longer shorts she'd be my fav. She's also one of the few female protags that get to wear a baseball cap, and one of the few protagonists overall with boots. May is one of my favorites too, and while her ORAS redesign is cute, it's still a downgrade from the original, and the art style doesn't help kek.
The one I hate the most so far has got to be Rosa, though. BW2 had some particularly atrocious designs for some reason. There seem to be some improvements in recent female protag designs in recent years (LGPE, Masters, SV), though still nothing like Kris, or even May, but at least they're not as blatantly coomerish as some past designs.
Needless to say, I've hated Lyra's design since HGSS's new protagonist designs were revealed. I will never accept her as the Johto protagonist. """Ethan's""" design is also kinda shitty and inferior to the original Gold design but he at least resembles his original appearance. Lyra appears to have been designed from scratch.

You might find this article interesting: http://www.rigelatin.net/staircase/pokemon-playercharacters.php (there's some enbie bullshit towards the end but otherwise it's a very fun article)

>>259385
They really had no reason to replace her. I honestly think no one, not even waifufag scrotes, liked her design at first, save for a small percentage of fans. But also, most of the hate obviously comes from the fact that she's not Kris. For me, it's both that and that I hate her fashion sense.

Hard disagree, the girls get well designed distinctive (though usually pretty girly yes) outfits while the guys basically copy each others styles legit three red hats with blue outfits in a row, only really unique looking outfits are brendan with his weird hat and platinum Lucas with most of the others you can tell the female protagonist got all the effort put in design wise.

I forgot to mention how much I hate the zettai ryouiki shit seen in some of the girl protagonists. Leaf was already questionable with the miniskirt that rubbed me the wrong way even when I was a kid, because it doesn't look like something you'd wear going on an adventure, but I still loved Leaf because she had long brown hair like me.
But then Dawn happened. And it seems that's where the designes started to focus less on what's practical and more on displaying their girliness.

>>259403
Yes, I mentioned that in my post, that the boys are more samey than the girls. But that's basically the only thing I like more about the girls' designs. And tbh the "boy = blue and girl = pink" standard affects both girl and boy designs negatively. Funnily enough I just noticed, that you can see that it was also in Gen 4 that this started to happen, from that point on the only boys that don't wear blue are redesigns of the older ones (Ethan and Brendan) and Victor (unless you count his jeans). Likewise, the only girls after Gen 4 that don't wear pink are Lyra, Gen 6 May and Selene.

>I think it just comes down to that they assumed kids would find Kris's design outdated
That's such a weak reason to replace her, because they could've just redesigned her, just like they did with Red, Leaf, Ethan, May and Brendan. Red has appeared in several generations and has gotten more redesigns than any other protagonist, but it's always clear that it's the same guy from the very first games and he even has the same name.

Fair point, either way I like both designs and how neither of them get ignored nowadays.
>just like they did with Red, Leaf, Ethan, May and Brendan.
Leaf never really got a redesign, she just got sort of mashed with the concept art of the gen 1 protag and made into Green. Honestly Leaf probably gets treated the worst of all the female protags considering that she doesn't even show up if you pick the female protagonist in games where Red shows up like HGSS and SM.
Nate probably gets it the second worst though since Rosa is the shill character, but that's probably for the best since his design is hot garbage and probably the worst protag design not counting scarlet and violet.

I'm an underdeveloped womanlet and I looked like this at 12, and a bunch of female classmates lookes way curvier than that, no idea what you're trying to say here.

>the boys who always get to wear cool clothes and look cool

Only Red, Gold and the guy from BW1 gave me that impression, the rest look less cool and fashionable than their female counterpart. I actually like that they're distinct, you don't have to play as the girl just because you're a girl so being able to pick between two distinct choices in better imo. That's why I find the MC in SV bland as fuck. And if they wanted to make the school uniform in SV look like a scout uniform at least make it look more, idk, colorful or whatever. Anyway, in gen 6, 7 and 8 the issue you're talking about is solved thanks to the customization, even though the clothes in gen 7 are kinda shit compared to gen 6 and gen 8.

Yes, this is a crime, it hurt so much when I was younger because I thought she was so cool yet neither she or Kris were so much as officially acknowledged. Not including her in the story could be excused in Gen 3 since those were the very first Pokémon remakes and it's understandable that they'd avoid adding too much that wasn't there before, but then in other games, they treat Red as the posterboy of the franchise and Leaf as if she never existed. However, Green/Leaf does appear in LGPE, and in Masters (just like Kris) she gets to be in the spotlight, and is even included in the Kanto trio along with Red and Blue, which is awesome.
This is getting off-topic though so we better move this discussion to the Pokémon thread lol

They aren't, but practically all the girls wear hot pants or miniskirts. Why? Because they're girls, somehow that means that they must show as much leg as possible, while the boys don't ever wear something as short as that.
Also, Gen 5 was when they started to make the human characters more appealing to the coomers so it wouldn't surprise me that Hilda was at least partially designed with that intention (plus the BW protagonists are older teens).

Their designs are innocent at a glance, but you have no idea how many times I've seen men in the Pokemon community say how much they wanna fuck May/Misty/Hilda because of her tight little shorts. So maybe shorts aren't inherently coomer-y, but they definitely appeal to that specific crowd. There's a world of difference between a real life woman wearing shorts because it's hot outside, and a male designing a female character with them because it gets him and other men off. So with that knowledge in mind, whenever I see a man design a female character this way, I always give him some serious side-eye.

I get you anon. Shorts are fine but it's pretty obvious why they usually put the female protag in shorts. The only time we saw a male protag wearing shorts was B&W but he was also wearing leggings undeneath them, meanwhile the girls are always barelegged. Dawn's winter wear is especially dumb and should at least be wearing leggings (if they really didn't want to give her pants).

I mentioned her because she still looks distinctly female thanks to her legs and feminine face. I don't get that vibe from s&v's npcs.

Ah, you're right. My point was that most fit/muscular women look nothing like Patty–or even Monica, who I look very similar to. Usually it takes a very targeted body building regimen, very low body fat, or even steroids to get there. Most muscular women look more lowkey. So yeah the NPCs are also unrealistic, but I also looked exactly like that one even before I started lifting. Cursed reverse triangle body type.

No. 260687

Yeah my point is mainly that there's many, many differences between male and female anatomy that make it so that you can always tell, which is why troons never pass irl, and even tho a lot of female body builders are roided to hell and back, you can still tell they're women, and anyone calling them a "man" or "manly" is only doing so to insult them or to make a tasteless joke, not because that's what they actually believe. So what I'm trying to say is that I'm tired of artists just making a male body and slapping tits on it when everyone's always able to tell that's what they did, and it comes across as lazy and kind of insulting. >>260681 is also right and I agree with >>260656 that this was probably made by a salty moid.

Only the hiker and the blue tanktop girl look like troons to me, but the rest still looks off because all the characters look like they're rejectd from an unreleased pixar movie or from Sonic Unleashed. I wonder why the designers decided to go with that kind of aesthetic given that Pokemon has always been super Japanese in terms of character design even down to the pixelated human characters' sprites in the very first game and it's one of the reason why the whole franchise got so big all over the world in the 90s.

The body types and ages are fine in concept but the graphics and designs are Metaverse tier soulless garbage with essentially zero art direction or vision. Pokemon exists only to promote new merchandise of the new pokemon that their loyal old cash cows and clueless little kids will buy so they get away with releasing an unfinished game that looks like it was put out by a Chinese knockoff mobile game studio, on purpose.
The 90s art was so sharp and edgy with interesting blocky shapes, colors, and recognizable style trends in the trainers’ fashions. Now it’s generic increasingly boring, roundified, thinktanked and consumer tested specifically to sell merch, like the Disney 3D round sameface style.

That's how it id irl though. Men are hairy compared to women so they tend to have longer and fuller eyelashes as long as nobody is using mascara. But I get what you mean about gender neutral stuff. Is that why you can only wear 4 hideous school uniforms in SV?

You can't even say for sure they're making tranny chracters, they're just badly designed and the art style sucks so everybody looks even more shit. I agree with other anons that you sound like a scrote with your obsession with blaming "woke pandering" because the female characters aren't "cute" anymore, there's not a single canon tranny or even gay character in this game as far as I know. And if you think a couple of GNC female characters (the champion and that gym leader or whatever) are "woke" pandering, at least I welcome that kind of pandering because they didn't make them troons, just women with a masculine aesthetic (it's a shame that the champion's design is so horrible though).
Also I don't see what's wrong with the one on the lower right corner, it looks perfectly like a generic trainer from previous generations.

No. 260769

>>260749
I think it's because women are the only ones expected to decorate themselves for other peoples' consumption/gaze and tbh I think eyelashes are an attractive trait in general? So overtime women started emphasizing them and it became a stereotype of femininity even though it isn't actually a feminine trait. It snowballed over time because of how the beauty standard for women today is almost completely artificial or extremely temporary. I once saw a group of incels post what they thought the average woman is and it was hysterically delusional.

This has already been said but Japanese scrotes are just as retarded and whiny as western scrotes. Pokémon has always had female character designs that aren't just coombait. Just because they've been deliberately making more sexualized designs in the last 4 or so generations it doesn't mean that they're trying to appeal to western trannies when they go back to making tame female designs or when their art style is shit.

What they did wrong for the human characters for me in Gen 8/9 is they tried to put too much uniqueness into each character's design. Pokemon is known for having character designs with crazy hair and outfits but I feel like it wad always kept to a minimum of a couple defining features per character until Gen 8.

Kabu, Bea, and Milo look the best to me from these because they kept relatively simple I like Opal's design as well but she's the exception to the too-cluttered look for me simply because older people tend to dress like this kek with a concise color pallet in their outfits. If they do have an exaggerated feature it's limited to
to one thing eg.) Milo's hat or Bea's hair & bow thing.
All the other characters are too visually busy with over exaggerated features (big hair, coats, shoes, belts, etc.) all in one. While these elements aren't a bad way to make a character stand out I think having too many at once can ruin the design, like with Piers for instance. I've also noticed the clothing the gym leaders wear in these games have so much patterning and colors going on that it clashes and distracts from the character alone (though in character design the character's outfit is just as much who the character is as their physical features)

Sorry to pokemon sperg again I just can't seem to jive with the newest gens looks at all, they either look like they are too simple (in the case of some of the pokemon) or have too much of a cluttered design (in the important npcs and legendaries)

I honestly like this. People seem to forget that Pokemon is a kids franchise and the designs are made to appeal kids. Crazy hair designs are the norm in children anime/manga so of course Pokemon will do the same. The first gens were simpler but I think that's because they were the first ones and they didn't have to make complex designs to be recognizable. Now they're already used up a lot of ideas and archetypes so they're ramping up the "uniqueness" of the designs by adding colors and weird details. Some designs are still pretty nice and simple though, the issue is mainly the shit quality of the game and 3d models.

Yes, but through the normalization of gender-non conformity, it becomes less synonymous with cooming, and characters like that are not only interpreted as trans today, but even canonically given the trans label despite being written the same way. The more people are put off by the trans community and coomers, the less likely they are to be written as anything else but gender-non conforming characters that are there just because that's slowly becoming the standard.

my friends where really into Bratz Babies when we where children but it always made me uncomfortable. Just seeing babies in make up, fashionable outfits and long hair felt wrong. Watching this as an adult it still makes me uncomfortable. It's just weird that a toy is trying to appeal to some manternal instict while also appealing to the girls who wants to be fashionistas. It's not even a power fantasy since the targeted audience isn't toddlers. I'm just sureprised that someone suggested "then we make a song where they sing "gotta look hotter than hot" and then the babies start swaying their hips to hit while putting on make up" and that got greenlit. idk this is weird babies don't look like this babies don't behave like this

Agree, I loved the softer colors and more whimsical "tea-party"-esque nature of MLP g1-3. I get that each generation of children will be into different things and nothing can stay the same but that is precisely the reason why I can't understand why they're back to doing the bright ugly saturated colors like they were doing in g3.5 and the later half of g3. At least g4 had a nice color balance between softer colored ponies and more vibrant ponies. Not to mention, the ponies were much cuter in comparison to what they're doing with g5. The g5 gang blends together in my mind. And, like I said, they're butt ugly kek.
>>263768
Because moids "relate" to female characters by unnecessarily sexualizing them (the entire shitshow that was the g4 fandom). I think the solution is to go back to what they did with g3 and make it as female-pony-only and as "female" as possible. So many failmale bronies I've met irl have said that g3 was the worst. I never even had to ask them why they thought that, it's pretty obvious it's because it only had female ponies and because it was for young girls and young girls only.

I'm spergy as fuck but complaining is my hobby kek, I think everything about them is bad. The human faces give me uncanny valley and they're just not-horse enough that it makes them loose the appeal. Getting rid of the eyebrows would help combat it a tiny bit, but they should just redesign the entire head/face.
The color choices don't work together as a group in my opinion, the goal is to have them all be different enough that every kid can have their distinct favorite. But they picked similarish orange and yellow, and then similar pink and purple. And obviously it's subjective but in my eyes most of the shades they chose just clash and look bad, I especially don't like the magenta-pink on orange.
And sperging on, I hate the names too because they're again too similar. Pipp, Zipp and Hitch all have one syllable i- names that sound the same, and the other 2 have 2-syllable names ending in -y. That's bad naming, you want a mix of sounds and length to make them all distinct and easy to remember.
But still the worst crime is adding a male horse to the main crew. It's a girly show made for girls, let girls have their girl-focused shows without forcing in males. If boys like watching a girly show, they can most likely relate to the girl characters anyway which is something they usually don't have to learn to do because 99% of media panders to males.

That's a good question, now I wonder too. Awakening and Fates had Kozaki as a character designer and his designs look great in 3D (pic related), which was already proven by No More Heroes before Awakening. He was tasked to make the characters give off a different vibe compared to the previous games despite being already familiar with the GBA games and he succeeded. Hidari also redesigned the characters from Gaiden for FE Echoes and made them all more distinct and they look good in 3D in actual gameplay, and the cutscenes look like shit for separate reasons. 3H's character designer is Chinatsu Kurahana who is already famous for doing character designs AND in-game art for BL games, and her designs for Utapri look good in 3D in more recent music videos. The issue in 3H is that none of the in-game art is done by her, her designs were botched by the art director (the same incompetent guy who managed to make Rinkah hideous in the mobile game and gave us the toilet bowl armor in Awakening). They all have experience in video game character design. IS now has the money and reputation to hire other experienced and competent character designers and they went with a twitter influencer artist. I instantly recognized the artists for Awakening/Fates and for 3H just based on 3D cutscenes and not even on their actual art, yet the characters in Engage are random moeblobs. I don't get it. Engage seems to have more detailed models and better animations than 3H, but it doesn't matter if all the characters look like hot garbage in the first place.

I love FE3H designs and i think the game deserved better in terms of character models and in game portrait art. I mean the entire game is pretty much unfinished in a lot of ways. Kurahana designed such a colour cast of characters and im still obsessed with all of them, 3 hopes designs also delivered. Its so disappointing to see engage throw all of that away for a vtuber artist when they could have made something even better than fe3h now that they have much more time and larger budget to work on the game.

mika pikazo is great for one thing: designing vtubers. and that's it. for anything else her art simply doesn't fit in even more for a title like fire emblem. the main defense i've been seeing is that 'fire emblem is a fantasy game it doesn't have to be realistic' but it's one thing to make designs that can fit within a setting in a way that feels natural and it's another to just say 'fuck it' and make everyone a moeblob genshin-derivate hololive reject. i do like mika pikazo's art, but her work in engage is abhorrent and just shows how the game seems to have close to no art direction. it's like they literally just created the setting and then told mika pikazo to do whatever the fuck she wanted with the character designs.

I'm not very familiar with her, but even her original art looks better than those abominations in the new FE. She's just not fit for designing characters in a European-inspired medieval fantasy setting, much less one that has historically had a serious vibe like Fire Emblem.

NTA but she's not good for designing anything that isn't overdesigned super modern harajuku/lolita/cutesy street/gyaru fashion with multicolored hair anime girls. it's why everyone says she's better off with vtubers, it's all she can design really. it became clear when she designed a character for fate grand order a couple years back and the end result looked like an abomination when compared to the rest of fgo's designs which is truly something else considering fgo's character design direction.

mika pikazo is just not a flexible artist. she can design one thing and one thing only. particularly what i hate the most is when in engage's cutscenes you look at the setting and the background and it all looks like normal medieval fantasy that could easily fit into any other FE game, but then one of those ugly ass characters step in and they look like they belong to an entirely different game. the characters literally don't match with the very background they step on to.

Maybe if she had developed him before killing him off he would have been less annoying. This was my main grip with KnY, everything went too fucking fast and there was no time to cool down or build character, I guess it was to show the world was horrible with all the deadly demons, but did every arc have to lead to a life or death fight with barely introduced characters on both sides? Even early Bleach and Naruto had better pacing imo.

I know I'm beating a dead horse here with Fire Emblem Engage, but the 3D models are such poorly done interpretations of the 2D art. Their eyes and face shapes look so damn bizarre. The boring renders don't help because the lighting and costuming is bland and the posing looks so lifeless. They do look a lil better in motion at least from a review I saw. I'm not super impressed with the 2D art either. Maybe it's just not my taste. Is that their actual concept art or is it just promotional illustrations?

Absolutely horrid. Her hair looks disgusting and diseased, she could honestly compete with Lil Wayne. This show in general has some of the most ugly, eyesore designs I've ever seen in the anime industry that I honestly refuse to give it a chance.

It's almost like anime itself is a shitty art genre that can't and doesn't make sense in terms of physics, proportions, or dimension. No wonder it translate poorly into 3D.

anime only looks good in 2d because it's in an uncanny level between realism and cartoony. putting them in a 3d space only exacerbates that problem

I'm so glad someone else pointed her out. I watched DS a few months ago and I found the show pretty "meh". Good animation but story wasn't that interesting to me but Michuru's design was easily of the worst designs in the show imo. The boob window was explained like >>265788 mentioned but it doesn't make the design any less ridiculous.

Honestly the show was full of spastic behavior that was godawful. This guy was bad and so was the character Tengen (picrel). His constant use of saying "flashy", I groaned the whole time which sucks because I actually did like his design but his dialogue for the most part was awful.

I hesitated to give this manga a try because I saw how popular it was when I was in Japan and some friends told me it was good. But this specific character made me not want to because on twitter I saw a few girls saying that he has three girlfriends and how he loves them equally uwu and they're sisterwives and sperging about how polyamory is good or whatever. I don't think I'll ever be able to unsee after that.

I hate all demon slayer designs because of how ugly and cluttered they look but this is the worst. The color combination is gross (and it's not that I hate green and pink together, it's those specific shades that look like shit) I hate the big socks, the teehee ironic boob window and the braids. The original style is so fucking bad too, I especially hate the big ass bug eyes everyone has and the way the hair is usually drawn, it looks greasy and flat. I'm glad the hype died down a bit because I couldn't stand the shit characters being spammed everywhere.

I think the worst part of this design is the fact that the only reason why mangaka (who is in fact a woman) could excuse it with 'uh, there are not enough clothing materials for her uniform, so she has this huge boob window in every outfit she wears!'. Picrelated looks tame in comparison on how she usually looks.

I can see it now, KnY and Naruto are actually very similar except for their art which goes in opposite directions, Naruto is super bland while KnY is too cluttered.

Naruto character designs are very iconic and are immediately recognizable. I’ve never read or seen the anime or manga but despite that I’m able to name and recognize most of the characters. If Naruto dressed like a classic ninja so in all black with face covered it wouldn’t be as well remembered.

That wasn't what I meant, sure the characters are recognizable but holy shit are they badly dressed, and come to Shippuden the art became really drab and the aged characters didn't look as good as their younger counterparts.

this looks like a nightmare to animate. Slightly off topic but so many animes looks like crap because the animators are underpaid and overworked. A good character design should be able to work within a cartoon's/anime's budget. Anime studios needs to stop adapting light novels and mangas that has complicated character designs because the are enabling bad animation and eye sores

nta but they definitely knew what they where doing with her. She has pigtails and an oversized hoodie which does make her look more childlike but she also walks around in a bikini so she is suppose to be sexy. Studio Trigger where also insisting on having a loli on the show. There is a clip where on of the crew members in the American department says that Studio Trigger told them "the loli must stay"

I liked this series, but the character designs did suck. I can't think of a single one that stood out to me. Lucy's was particularly annoying because the crotch area looks like it would be so uncomfortable and tight in real life. Rebecca's colors were nice but that was about it, and I feel like Dorio deserved a way nicer design. Kiwi's was just ugly despite being the only fully covered one.

I genuinely don't mind skimpy character designs (to an extent) but you can't tell me that in a world like Cyberpunk's, the characters would have such boring styles. The edgiest thing the female characters could think of is to have their titties out? I don't get it. 'least Falco was hot.
