Being a fan of traditional 2D art and animation, Austin Visuals 3D Animation Studio thinks it’s great that most of the animated feature films are in 3D computer graphics, but also sometimes this can take away from imagination. The degree of caricature may vary a little, but all studios and all CG films are being presented in this hyper realistic world. The day can be dreaded when classic animations like Disney’s “Aladdin” or Don Bluth’s “An American Tail” stole the spotlight in animated films. Hand drawn animation only shows the line essentials, challenging the viewer to accept drawings as live beings. On the other hand, there have been 3D films that have completely blew our minds by keeping the level of caricature and realism at the same time. A good example would be the notable Dreamworks film “How To Train Your Dragon”. The characters were very “cartoony” but the textures, dynamics and even body language on the characters amazed me. The fact is Austin Visuals 3D Animation Studio loves both 2D and 3D animation equally. However, let’s not forget that while 3D appears realistic and high tech 2D affects audiences in a special and unique way and we should not let it die.
