Personal Quote: You get what you give
Maybe it's old news to a lot out here, but I just found out that Disney is returning to handdrawn animation(Princess & the Frog). Personally, I think that this is a step foreward, because computer-animation(with all respect to the animators)should be only used as a tool to make the backgrounds more cool.(Like in Basil from Bakerstreet, Beauty & the beast, Aladin, etc). I think that computer-animated characters don't have same charm & emotion as handdrawn animation(However, I love The Incredibles!), but it has this steril thing about it, wich handdrawn animation does not have. When I heard it, I was very excited about it, because Disney finally stood up and showed it's balls(pardon the expression! ;) ) to Pixar.

But maybe my reaction is based on the fact that I come from a generation that grew up with the oldschool cartoons(not specificly Disney, but handdrawn), like Thundercats, Masters of the universe, etc. and that it comes from a nostalgic point of view.
What do you think? Is it a step foreward? Does it mean that there is a future for handdrawn animation(and animators) and that computers didn't take over the business? Just curious.

Hee een Nederlander die Eddie getekend heeft en nog gaaf ook. Ik heb heem toen wel gezien op de site van Maiden, inderdaad niet gewonnen, maar er zijn altijd goede inzendingen, ook die van jouw. Dus ook die van jouw is opgeslagen toendertijd.

Ik weet niet of je zin hebt, maar er is een club voor Eddie-fans :iconeddie-the-head-club: en ook een Eddie hyve beide heb ik gemaakt, dus je bent welkom.



Bedankt voor het compliment! sorry voor de(late) reactie!
