Super unbelievably belated birthday arts for the amazing Molly! I’m sorry this took so long! (I don’t know if her character Shei is usually this successful at thieving but we can always pretend it’s a dream sequence hahahaha)
haha I’m stupidly proud of this. Did you know I have an ~*~art blog~*~ ?? you can find my art there!! I know! Wait what do you mean your sick of my dumb reblogs and text posts anyway?! Where are you going?! DON’T HIT THAT UNFOLLOW BU
Wow I finally worked out a floor plan for Discord’s Door! Whaaaat
Initially it was a single floor and a basement, but it blew up at some point so when Kesi re-built it she renovated a lot.
The third floor is more like an inn and the room layout is likely to change. Currently they’re more like hotel rooms although I know they kind’ve look like apartments the way I’ve laid them out haha. I think Kesi would probably make them as comfortable as possible since they’re usually rented out to demons/angels/humans/others on the run. The medical bay (which I need to re-name) is just in case another war breaks out since that’s kind of Discord’s Door’s purpose, it was initially built to act as a fall-back point for Chaos operatives during one of the earlier wars. It’s been fitted so they can do emergency surgery on the fly, although it can’t be guaranteed your surgeon isn’t drunk. Sorry.
I didn’t lay out the basement because it’s been a long-running joke that it’s full of manticores or something and I like the idea that no one can actually get in there (except Dimitri, because every time he asks Kesi for a favour she makes him get rid of them) and also I’m lazy and I need to move onto other stuff for now.

Yiiikes yeah that’s pretty bad! I’m struggling between not really wanting to pay to see it again but really wanting to take a second look at the animation, so if I cave I’ll definitely keep my eye out for them. I was surprised there were any at all because Disney is usually so on top of that shit.
god all the clipping issues in Frozen and the fabric looking like folded paper and the weight issues of the characters being sosososo off
i aint gonna say i know anything about animation but
i would be feelin really embarrassed about a half finished work going to press ja feel
I gotta disagree on this one, although I do need to watch it again and really focus on the animation since I was kind of distracted by issues I had with the story.
I mean yeah they have clipping issues, I’ve only seen the one example where one character is lifting another and I bet someone is cursing themselves for not catching that during a render pass review because god how many times must they have seen that?
I think the fabric, though, was done well and it wasn’t like they were neglecting it. They had different weight for the different dresses the characters were wearing. Elsa has what looks like more of a heavy wool dress on at first and it moves stiffer than the more satiny-dress she has on later. I think they were just taking the weight of the fabric into account although I don’t know how much of that is animation department and how much is rigging tbh. I’m not sure if they use ncloth or have part of it ncloth and part of it touched up by animation, although I bet it was a headache for somebody hahaha dresses hahaha cries for a thousand years.
In general I liked the weighting? I looked at the Let It Go clip again and there’s lots of good weighting in there, when she raises the castle and tosses her crown. I thought that lift where the clipping issue happens was well animated, even if someone missed the actual clipping (Animation works with low-res models compared what you see on screen, I’ve always been given low-res models that are rendered at a higher res and then rendering comes back and is like “Hey so now that this is high-res this hand is cutting through the item he’s holding plz fix”, but film and TV are different so for all I know they may have rad computers that can let you work with high-res models)
But HEY I’m just rambling because this is my thing you know I’m not trying to change your mind, everyone’s going to look for different things/interpret stylistic choices differently when they see a movie. I’m just throwing in my two cents on it. I had more problems with the plot structure than the actual animation.
TL;DR I disagree but respect your opinion and also I get too wound up about animation and also I will go back and watch it again soon-ish and maybe discuss it on my own blog where you don’t have to deal with long-ass rants about this stuff hahahaaa sorry oh my god I didn’t mean to go on for that long.
