Favorite 3D animation style?

Hmm, not how I interpreted it but fair enough. I think even with all the flesh removed and an entirely mechanical design, it still feels less toy accurate than Miramax by a long shot.

Personally I’m not too keen on the Bionicle game style - it’s okay and works well in its context. The hands are a nice touch though. It kind of looks like how they’d design the Toa if they were to make a children’s TV series based on them with their more simplified design, larger blocks of colour and oversized head - not meant to be a criticism, just the vibe I get.

Yeah, that’s what I was talking about. Pretty similar design choices.The upper leg design, the mask, the nuva armor, etc.

I prefer the Ghost style, mostly because it looks the nicest. Overall the animation looks nice, and while the models leave something to be desired the rest of the animation easily makes up for it imo.

something similar to the mirimax/2003 video game style, but just a tad more set accurate would be nice.

I want to be objective on quality here, but sorry, nostalgia is overpowering all reason and I’m going with the Miramax style purely for that

for me its probably either ghost or miramax.
I like the set acuraccy of all but miramax, but especally ghost.
the reason I like miramax is because it does show how organic some parts of the characters are.

but masks as mouths? please no

While Tinseltown Toons has a lot going for it with trying to make the cahracters look like actual machines with weathering, I ultimately much prefer Ghost’s approach. It’s basically the sets, but in the envirenments of the story. I’ve always imagined story scenes to look similar to Ghost commercials.
In my opinion, the toys shouldn’t look worse than in animation and vice versa. They’re already realy well designed, so why not just keep their look?

Tinseltown Toons. Absolutely loved how they translated the set designs, especially with the HF series.

Ghost is my favorite!

And my least favorite is from Journey to One, I just don’t like that style of animation.

Creative Capers/Miramax by far. I love how they built on the sets and made them more lifelike and emotive. Every time I rewatch those movies, I find another small detail I didn’t notice before. They put a lot of thought into how these characters would be put together, and what they might be made from.
