Tangled comparisons - concept art to the final film.
why the fuck is the concept art so much better
because it’s art and artists spend months on one piece and they can paint and everything has artistic freedom while the film is 3D animation and has to be done quickly
what is hard to understand
That’s not the reason but ok
The fact is that in the making of the movie, come up some issues concerning the technology and the marketing, as well as the personal opinions of the collaborators.
The art is AMAZING and realistic, but let’s imagine how would be made that style of rendering. Level: crazy.
Furthermore, it’s not so recognizable as Disney style; children would not be attracted by a product so realistic, no matter how beautiful it is.
Unfortunately, we must not forget that Disney still talks primarily to children.
This is it.
(sorry for some derpies)
"disney dumbs shit down because in the end they only make films for children"
haha, that’s even more insulting than the other replies
the thing is, both Tangled and Frozen are the sad results of many years of retooling, retoying, rewriting, committee consultation, cuts and firings and what not that we can’t understand as it is right now. Both of those movies began as something so vastly different than what we ended up seeing, you’d never think they were the same. When an artist pitches their work, they have a vision in their mind. When a team of people make a set, you have anywhere from 10 to 40 people working on it together. When you have deadlines that sneak up on you, your work suffers. Frozen, as we know it, was made in 8 months, 6 of them were animation. The animation in that film was 6 months, think about that. They were still not done 3 weeks before the actual print was to be submitted. That’s why there wasn’t a trailer until right before it was out in theaters, why they opted for a cutesy short about Olaf instead- their characters, their story, everything, wasn’t done yet. Knowing this, Frozen turned out amazing for what it was they had to cut from the final film. It’s unreal. Tangled was the same.
WIR was the success it was because it didn’t suffer the delays Tangled and Frozen did. WIR had a unique workflow- by workflow, I mean, how the film’s production goes in stages- unlike Tangled and Frozen done in a traditional 2D production sort of way where if there are rewrites you’ll have to redo everything… for WIR, they nailed out the story very early before animation and the really labour intensive stuff, compared to the other two films. Everyone was on the same page.
Frozen and Tangled had to be ‘perfect’, and because they couldn’t risk disappointing anybody, they instead had to accept settling. It turned out well because Frozen was magnificent and a massive critical success, but the point of everything I’m saying is, the concept art and final film are so different not because “3D sucks and has no heart!” “it’s just a stupid kids film, why bother pursuing quality”, or whatever really fucking insulting bullshit you think- it’s because both of those films were rushed as hell. That’s the end of it.
concept art will always be ‘better’ to some people, because it’s from the heart of one artist, not the amalgam of hundreds that sacrifice their vision for the greater good.
Hey. Don’t just scroll past. Come back and watch this. You need it more than you know.
the time out of your day to watch this will not be wasted, I assure you.
By about the 2:00 I was sobbing.
I scrolled halfway past and then thought “okay i’ll see what it’s about”
Definitely the correct choice. Watch it.
They. Were. Wrong.
oh god the actual tears on my face
my english teacher showed us this in class the other day. When it was over, I looked around to see reactions. Half the class had these awkward, slightly uncomfortable grins, and half were staring frozen at the screen. You could really tell who this affected.
Oh my… You ALL need to watch this. Very little affects me the way this video did: literally shivers and tears. Please give this a watch.
It was a tables match.
First one to go through a table loses.
I hope everyone can appreciate this now
The head lift.One of my favourite moments in the history of Supernatural.
the moment I decided Castiel could sit with us.
one time my religion teacher who has a monobrow asked me “what the hell did you do to your hair?” because i had a blonde streak through it and i said “what the hell did you do to your eyebrow” and he sent me outside
when i came back in he asked everyone what monotheism was and i said it meant a religion that worshiped one god because mono means one as in monobrow and he sent me out again
really? EVERYBODY was kung fu fighting? i find that hard to believe. stop feeding me these lies
Well it was really hard to see if it was everyone, you see they were as fast as lightning.
And to be honest it was a little bit frightening.
From what you could see though, they had expert timing.
According to the laws of physics, a planet in the shape of a doughnut (toroid) could exist. Physicist Anders Sandberg says that such planets would have very short nights and days, an arid outer equator, twilight polar regions, moons in strange orbits and regions with very different gravity and seasons.

THE STORY POTENTIAL FOR THIS IS AMAZING YOU COULD HAVE TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT CIVILIZATIONS SEPARATED BY DESERT ON THE OUTSIDE AND AN PERMANENT NIGHT-WINTER ON THE INSIDE
YOU COULD (WITH A LITTLE FUDGING ON TIDES OR SOME STABILIZATION FORCE) HAVE MOONS THAT GO THROUGH THE FUCKING HOLE, WITH LUNAR-POWERED SORCERERS LIVING ON THE INNER EQUATOR IN GIANT ICE CASTLES WAITING FOR THE TIME OF THE MONTH WHEN THE MOON ILLUMINATES THE ETERNAL NIGHTTIME AND THEIR SPELLS HAVE THE MOST POWER
YOU COULD HAVE ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SPECIES THAT EVOLVED ON OPPOSITE SIDES WHO ARE BASICALLY ALIENS ON THE SAME PLANET AND WHOEVER CROSSES THE GIANT DESERT OR ARCTIC CIRCLE (HEH) MAKES FIRST CONTACT
THIS IS SO COOL
THIS IS SO COOL
I WANT TO RUN FIFTY THOUSAND GAMES ON WORLDS LIKE THIS HOLY FUCK
THIS JUST IN IF I’M UNDERSTANDING THE MAGNETIC FIELDS CORRECTLY I THINK THE ETERNAL NIGHT ICE REALM WILL HAVE NEAR-CONSTANT ELECTRICAL STORMS
Re-reblogging for the additional stuff.
this is the coolest article oh wow
Now when it says “Arid outer equator” it actually means ALL THE OCEANS would be pulled towards the center, so the outer bit would be one long giant unbroken desert. Gravity!
What do you call a woman who has a lot of sex? Her name.
GOD FUCKING YES, that.
THIS. WHOLE. PICTURE. <3
Oops, sorry, this picture automatically reblogged itself.
this whole picture is just great
Sorry for the color, but this HAS to be on my blog.
The guy in the back I have something wonderful to say to you
EVERYONE PLEASE. PAY ATTENTION. Especially if you’re Asian.
On January 30th, 2014, California Senate just passed SCA-5, a legislation that would repeal portions of California Proposition 209.
In condensed words, this bill allows schools to DISCRIMINATE AGAINST ASIANS.
To understand SCA 5, we have to remember what Prop. 209 is. In November 1996, Proposition 209 (also known as the California Civil Rights Initiative) amended the state constitution to prohibit state government institutions from discriminating against, or granting preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment , public education, or public contracting. In the 18 years that Prop 209 has been in effect, California has become the most diversified state in the US.
State Senator Ed Hernandez, the one who introduced this bill, claims that due to Prop 209, Non-Asians have a harder time being admitted into state universities.
This bill will ALLOW THE STATE to use RACE, SEX, COLOR, ETHNICITY, OR NATIONAL ORIGIN as a consideration for accepting students or hiring employees. SCA-5 is out to punish Asian-Americans simply because we set the bar too high for getting into schools with high exam scores.
Asian-Americans often need test scores hundreds of points higher than applicants from other ethnic groups to have an equal chance of admission.
This bill goes against EQUAL PROTECTION, our 14th Amendment, as American citizens!
IF WE ALLOW THIS BILL TO PASS. WE HAVE STUNTED GENERATIONS FROM GROWING AND EXPANDING THEIR MINDS, THEIR HORIZONS OF UNDERSTANDING.
IF WE ALLOW THIS BULLSHIT BILL TO PASS, WHO’S NEXT UNTIL THE LAST RACE WHOM IS DEEMED “WORTHY” OF EDUCATION IS LEFT STANDING?!
Xudong Sun, president of American Anhui Association of Scholars and Students, told Xinhua that this legislation is racial and is a serious discrimination against Asian Americans.
He said right now at the University of California and state universities, Asian students account for 36 percent, but Bill SCA-5 would restrict Asians to 13 percent.
He said under-represented minority groups, like African Americans and Hispanics need protection, but such protection should not be made at the expense of Asian Americans.
Here is the Whitehouse.gov petition: WE NEED 100,000 SIGNATURES BY MARCH 18TH. THAT’S 10 DAYS FROM NOW.
Here is the Change.org petition.
PLEASE SIGN THESE TWO TO GET THIS BILL TORN TO SHREDS! and PLEASE. SPREAD THE WORD.
Read through the bill.
How the hell did this pass? Like, I can understand Hernandez’s position in that he wants to look out for non-Asian minority students. That’s a legitimate thing.
However, making a bill that allows public schools to be able to say “No asians need apply” really is not the way to go about it.
Side-bar: this allows those public institutions to further discriminate against Latinos, Blacks and Native Americans at their options.
The hell man.
This is a 14 page story I’ve been working on for the past couple months (which is why there’s been a slow down in updates). I hope you like it, I worked pretty hard on it!
