I LOVE ASTRID’S FACE. I JUST WANT TO STARE AT IT FOR 300 YEARS. SHE HAS SO MUCH EMOTION IN HER FACIAL EXPRESSIONS AND SHE’S GORGEOUS
ALSO LOOK AT HER BOTTOM LIP IN THE FIRST GIF. SEE HOW HICCUPS FINGER IS PUSHING IT TO THE SIDE VERY SLIGHTLY?! SO. MUCH. FREAKING. DETAIL. I WANT. TO. SCREAM.
yes but look at the reflection in her eyes holy dreamworks
I always get a little annoyed when people say the best part of any animation is the reflections. In conventional hand drawn animation, reflections show the artists true skill fairly well, but in CGI, reflections are generally fairly easy. Using reflection mapping, all the animators have to do is load up a render of the already created environment onto the eye texture and the software will automatically apply it to the surface after it is given sets of parameters for reflectivity. This is far simpler and potentially better looking than creating a brand new texture from scratch.
Not saying that “Oh, dreamworks is lazy, they didn’t put any effort into reflections blah blah” I’m just saying there are far more interesting and more labor-intensive features to ogle at, smooth movement being the chief among these. Saying the reflections are the best part is kinda like saying the most impressive part of a song is the sampled audio.
don’t stare at the moon too long or else you’ll remember that nothing in this stupid fucking world makes sense
its fucked up when u grow up and realize everybody is on drugs..
really sick of seeing so much hate directed towards the police on here. look, we get it, you prefer sting’s solo work, i like it too alright? that doesnt mean ‘every little thing she does is magic’ and ‘can’t stand losing you’ arent awesome jams. ‘roxanne’ and ‘don’t stand so close to me’ are classic, don’t even get me started on ‘spirits in the material world’. just stop ok?
