YOUR SPRITE MOVIES SUCK -- rant contained

I have to admit, sprite movies are awful. I think that they are uncreative and desultory. Keep in mind that I am not talking about sprite movies that were made from scratch. Rather, I am talking about the morons who rip their sprites. The animation is terrible and the story is worse than any generic fight scene a la DBZ.

Why don't you learn to draw your own stuff? Is it too hard to do it on your own? If you do not have the balls to animate with sweat and blood like the real animators on here do, than animation is not for you.

Here is some excellent commentary on the subject:

OH NOEZ, MY FEELINGS HAVE BEEN HURT. WAH WAH, THE BIG BAD KITTY MADE A MOVIE THAT HURT MY PRECIOUS FEELINGS@!!!*(178917891789

Somebody tried to defend the existence of sprite animations by saying that "they are a good starting point."

Really?

Hey, you know what's a better starting point? Drawing your own shit.

And no, it isn't a good starting point. It is a shitty starting point. Sprite Animations go against everything animation should be. They stymie the potential of the artist. As if sprite animators invented the tween.

There are a lot of awesome tutorials on this website for drawing, so why don't you go there and learn some real animation?

That's all I am going to say about the subject. >8(

Unfortunately, you have bad tastes and little open-mindedness on the subject, I'm afraid. Sprite animations can be good, and the point of them is to be unoriginal in the first place, to promote familiarity with the characters being used. They don't even have to be ripped from a game, they can be custom-made, rendering your statement on "drawn shit" null and void. It is simply a different technique, as is hand-drawn.

Hopefully you'll realize that soon.

Read, you dolt.

>Sprite animations can be good, and the point of them is to be unoriginal in the first place, to promote familiarity with the characters being used.<

Wow, the stupid, IT BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURNS. If I want familiarity, I'll play the damn games.

YES PEOPLE, LET'S RIP SPRITES OR COPY EXISTING SPRITES! Please. You didn't address my points in the journal. Most people who like retarded Nintendo parodies are . . . retarded, like you. A lot of this crap is a bunch of ill conceived rubbish, and it seems like morons flock give adulation to the "animator" who shat the sprite movie onto the portal.

Move on, unoriginal scum.
