Controversy ahoy! Or not, if nobody replies to the thread. Then I just look like some guy duct taping puffins to his head in an attempt to get flighty results.
It just occured to me that the rant I just crapped out in the IT's FINALLY FINISHED thread isn't really the right place, so I've put it up here. So the question is - what do you think of anime as art?
As you can probably tell, I'm an anime fan. HOWEVER! I utterly despise modern anime. I think anything animated and Japanese from 1999 onwards looks like it's been scrawled by a small child in his or her own rancid faeces. My inspiration for drawing is and always will be the quality of classic "golden era" (aka, the 80s)anime, where everything was incredibly detailed and colourful, unlike the digitally mass produced, grey, non-shaded washed-out crap that's called anime these days.
In short, I know that the majority of people on conceptart don't like the 'anime style,' and many don't even consider it real art. Judging by the way modern anime looks, I can't blame them. But don't dismiss it until you've seen Gunbuster or Macross Plus.
That's my twenty pence on the matter, anyway.
Here's an explanatory diagram/propoganda I knocked up to illustrate my bile-spewing point. A point so filled with rage that I didn't even check how to spell 'propaganda!'
