@masterdetective: you selectively chose pictures that made it seem as if what you are saying is true?

There are more small market movie companies now with the advent of digital media, so it is easier to find low-quality fanfics?

Media is now mostly created digitally instead of by hand?

Ill tell you what, I cant draw for shit.

You seem to be ignoring the art styles of the sixties which used limited animation to rebel against the more realistic animated styles used by Disney. Clearly we are just going through that phase again where some animators and people have grown tired of the realistic animation styles and wish for more abstract and less defined art styles.

You've selectively chosen "bad animation" from the modern times.

And said "bad animation" may very well be intentional art style.

Yeah because all animation from the 2010's is soooo bad. Just look at the horrible animation from this show that came out in 2012.

I think it's more stylistic than anything else. Kim Possible was never meant to be realistic, her figure was barely feminine except for the hair. The more realistic style of Defenders of the Earth or GI-Joe was a choice. The fact that Flash animation is used more now while hand drawn was still used for them may have something more to do with it. It's easier to animate characters like Stephen Universe or My Little Pony with Flash than it is to animated something like Megas XLR.

I don't mind either style, so long as you match the style to the story. I don't like the current version of Scooby Doo in part because of the animation style. It seems so bad after Scooby Doo Mystery Inc.

I obviously don't need to specify that I'm talking from a general point of view
