At first, I was expecting PandaPanther (the animation studio that did the cutscenes and trailers of SSA, SG, SSF, STT), but I'm loving the looks of TeamTO's visuals and their efforts in making Skylanders Academy as appeal looking as possible.

What do you guys think?

I like very much how it looks. It is nearer to a movie than to a show.

The expressions seem to be very wroked as well.

Defnitely good news smilie

Really love the style! The animation is so clean and detailed, with expressions looking really great! The characters are so interesting seeing them within a daily setting, I.e. Eruptor just standing casually in the first pic, or stealth elf without a mask. So hyped for sure!

I want to see it in motion first before getting to any conclusions.

I'm very impressed with the visuals. I was afraid all the characters would end up looking like they were made out of rubber, but Spyro's scales, Eruptor's stone, and Stealth Elf's skin all look really natural and organic.

The designs looks very good, but, as Bifrost, I'm expecting to see the motion in action. Though I'm a little buggy about that Mabu on the background of the first image. They look... Strange.

So, what did PandaPanther made aside from the cutscenes from past games?

PandaPanther did the trailers of past games, as I had mentioned earlier. But they've also done some promotional commercial videos - http://www.pandapanther.com/

I think the animation judging from the screenshots are pretty good.

Pros
  • Spyro looks better than in games, comics, commercials, and figures.
  • They made most of the Skylander models look pretty nice and took the jump of having Stealth Elf have a mouth
  • Some of the details on the Skylanders look really nice like Spyro's scales and bits of Eruptor's body.
  • Also with the CGI it could take advantage on camera angles which seems to be doing well in the screenshots given. Maybe they'll give us some nice action scenes when out.

Cons
  • Spyro's horns and spikes really look plasticy. As well as Stealth Elf's hair.
  • At times it would seem even less detailed than usual or as thought.
  • PopFizz's model from a screenshot looks really messed up. Idk how else to describe it.

Otherwise, not bad.

The stills look good. I abhor PF and SE's character models, but the rendering is good if a little shiny/bloom-heavy. Eruptor, Jet-Vac and Spyro all look really nicely detailed, and the textures and colors are great too. The backgrounds actually seem pretty nice too (besides the lazy reused mabu models, they look way too obvious since the same colors were bunched together a lot, but reusing their models is perfectly understandable).

It's hard to judge something out of context, but I can tell that the voices are gonna take some getting used to.

They're not high energy scenes, but I feel a lack of particle effects. Eruptor crying pebbles just looked weird since they popped into existence. Everything else looks pretty good though.

I mean, this could always be pretty early stuff, so you never know, but I think they're doing a good job with I've seen so far.

Keep in mind Vimeo allows you to download videos, it seems. I won't do that since it's super early but if you guys want Eon chanting about his beard spray on your ear every day, that's provided.

Can you put Eon's Beard Spray on YouTube, please? You can find a way to download Vimeo videos and cut the scene, then post it on YouTube.

Make a gif? Even WMM can cut that part and add subtitles, just time it and use a video-to-gif converter.

I gave it a look, WMM can't actually crop it. I'll /try/ to do a gif via Photoshop but don't count on it.

edit: did the first part since it's not a toll on my pc. No idea how to upload it to gifcat or giphy though, so if you guys want to post it alone that'll be up to you.

Just a small summary, they're several shorts from a single episode it seems.

1) Kaos somehow stole Eon's beard, and for some reason Golden Queen falls in love with him over Wolfgang.
2) Hugo tries to help Eruptor with anger management, and after a few weeks is less than impressed though Eruptor is joyful.
3) Eon has a weird fixation with beard spray. Spyro tries to call him for something and he still manages to put beard spray in the subject, literally, by spraying more of it around.

The clips really felt like a trip. You definately feel the mix of Futurama and Gravity Falls with the nonsensical and quick jokes - some might find it cringy but when you see how weirdly distinct from the games it is, it's pretty hilarious in a meta sense.

Now I'm thinking TeamTO is more fluid in the animation than PandaPanther. smilie

I've only seen the officially posted clips and based beard spray, but I don't feel like it was much better than Sonic Boom quality honestly. The rendering is but still seems a little too shiny or smooth at times, but the animation... There's a few really good expressions in there but it just doesn't quite work for me.
I really don't like what I'm seeing of this show at all besides based beard spray and the only reason I haven't said more is because I haven't actually seen an episode.

My only problem with the animation is some special effects (like Eruptor's lava). Some of them are a little odd. Besides that, the animation is above the TV standards.

I would also criticize the overuse of Mabu, but, like they said, animation is pretty expensive and hard, so...

Maybe some polish on movement and it's 100%. We'll see the results next year.
