5 Underrated and Overrated Animated Cartoons

Underrated (Hardly mentioned)

  1. Emperor’s New Groove – It’s funny, it’s nice but not many has heard of it
  2. The Rescuers – Animation is superb, so is the story yet not many knows this
  3. Wreck-It-Ralph – Heartwarming and something different
  4. Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron – Inspirational; four-legged creatures aren’t easy to animate but this looks beautifully done
  5. Balto – Strong animation, motivational story.

Overrated (Seen too much hype and fan stuffs on it)

  1. Frozen – Sure, the animation is beautiful but the story isn’t worth the hype (or this is probably due to the singing). The story felt similar to Brave.
  2. Rise Of The Guardians – It felt childish, definitely not recommended for adults. Animation and graphics are great. Typically, all other guardians look like weaklings as opposed to Jack.
  3. Brave – all over the place and predictable story, cliche main character
  4. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs – Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it. I just don’t think it is worth that much attention.
  5. Kungfu Panda – Insulting stereotype with an unappealing main character and predictable storyline.

Speedpaint of Hercules. I miss watching 2D animations by Disney.

Trying out a different kind of painting style for the very first time; done in Photoshop. A comparison of many drawing styles coming up next.


Swan Woman Odette (2 Hours)

Odette Sketch Swan Woman

Odette Sketch Swan Woman

This is a superhero version of Swan Princess, Odette the Swan Woman. Odette is my favourite princess and I imagined her as some mutant-like heroine with swan wings for hands which also serves as her weapons. She has swan-like armour at her back which prevents attacks from behind. This sketch took 2 hours. I will most likely be posting the coloured version in my portfolio,  ysfaye.com

This sketch also serves as an experiment in testing out my new way of sketching. A bigger resolution will be available at my website too.
