"I enjoy that villain as a character, but their charm doesn’t excuse their actions and neither does their tragic backstory."
"Poor misunderstood baby!"
THIS IS THE BEST POST ON TUMBLR
her hair absolutely fazes through her arm
but hey at least she looks hot
can /you/ do any better?
I mean god damn are you people seriously going to pick at every little thing DID YOU NOT SEE HOW FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE BACKGROUND WAS? HOW WONDERFULLY ANIMATED THE ICE AND SNOW AND MAGIC WAS?
Not to mention how INCREDIBLE her voice sounds in this scene
But no, is all ruined because a cartoon had her hair phase through her arm
um hi as a professional 3d animator this is actually really really sloppy of them and everyone should be pointing this out
first and foremost all the backgrounds and particle effects are pretty and shiny and nice and all but it doesn’t mean anything if your character animation isn’t up to snuff because you know that’s kinda what people go to see the movie for
second there are dozens and dozens of levels of quality control in the disney studios - i’ve seen shit a thousand times less noticeable than this get people torn apart during dailies by their instructors or their superiors
lemme tell you something when i was in school one time i had spent two weeks working out a piece where a guy jumps out of a filing cabinet and there was a four frame segment where the tip of his foot collided with the edge of the cabinet as he turned around
my instructors spent almost a full half an hour drilling me on it in front of the entire class because i was too lazy to go back and fix it
so no these guys have literally no excuse whatsoever they have the best and brightest in the business and all the money in the world to back it there is absolutely no reason for that kind of supreme laziness
Living with a dog is like having a furry drunk person following you around all the time.

Body Language Cheat Sheet for Writers
As described by Selnick’s article:
This is something I have always encouraged people to consider when writing. If you can afford it, and you have one in your area - TAKE A BODY LANGUAGE CLASS. It will open your eyes to a whole new world of subtleties you never knew existed. SO worth it as a “Real Life” skill and for all those times when you’re writing and you need your character to react nonverbally.
There is also, in addition to these others, the writer resource book: The Emotion Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi
This is how you show, not tell what your character is feeling.
robots getting really concerned when a human yawns and then another human does as well and wondering if this is some sort of group signal that they need to respond to so they just awkwardly go “aaaaaa” to try and imitate them
robots jumping and getting really scared when a human sneezes and rushing over to check on them “DID YOU JUST BLOW A FUSE ARE YOU ALRIGHT DO YOU REQUIRE ASSISTANCE”
robots getting all worried when their human is blushing because “your surface temperature has increased and your pigment is off are you alright”
robots trying to understand human bodies (◕ω◕✿)
why do people respond to posts pointing out the animation errors in Frozen with “stop being so mean” or “to err is human” like it’d be more forgivable if this was a small indie production but this is one of the best and biggest animation studios in the country, the world practically and it’s not like there weren’t dozens of people overseeing the movie whose job it is to prevent amateur errors like that
MY OPINION ON THINGS CHANGE FREQUENTLY AS I LEARN MORE STUFF ABOUT THE THING PLEASE DO NOT HOLD ME ACCOUNTABLE FOR SOMETHING I SAID THREE YEARS AGO
