That does not look like a bad design, it's just Butch's art is ****. That's a whole different thread chief.


Oh but trust me, he belongs here. His actual character designs give me such a visceral, violent, and feral reaction.

Take a look at his Danny Phantom AU OC, Misery Vex

[AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH]

This is 100% him. This isn't a character that was pre-designed by someone else that he drew, traced, or reconceptualized. Everything about this is original Butch, and I ****ing hate it.

OH SPEAKING OF WOLVES. YA'LL WANNA SEE WHAT THE HELL I DISCOVERED TODAY? IT'S A ****ING RABBIT HOLE CHIEF.

I was just vibing and I see an image from a film and I felt instant disgust, fear, and pure anger all in 1 package. This film I asked the name of is called "3 pigs and a baby". Now the company that does these "unstable fables" films (YES THERE IS MORE **** ME), make some of the most horrid and abominable anthro designs. Also on google images I found out that old user Bluefox posted a image of the film in a thread she made in 2019. I nearly shat myself. Apparently 3 pigs and a baby was on netflix at some point so, chiefs i am ****ting myself scared with that possibility.

As she said. Boobettes.

You know what's a design that completely slipped my mind til today, while staring at cereal boxes? This Techni colored "calarts" mess dubbed "Toucan Sam". #NotMySam. I know I am going to get the beat stick upon my ass for the usage of calarts, but I'm giving my ass a small pillow here to ask "what would you call this bean mouth, thin lined, barely any edges style". Should I call it the 2018 calarts? To specify era?

i am going to upset somebody with this post...

i am so underwhelmed by red's design for sun and moon... like, the original artwork for him wasn't great, but in fr/lg, and even in other new depictions of him, he looks pretty badass. but in sun and moon, he just looks... idk kind of plain

[User Posted Image]

i feel like they didn't even want to make knuckles a unique character in sonic boom, his inly purpose was to be big, strong, and dumb, because that's terribly original, and his design exemplifies this. i used to think it was cool that knuckles had a lot of physical strength but didn't look like a typical musclehead character. this is the opposite of that.

[User Posted Image]

every other version/incarnation/clone/whatever of xehanort looks cool. just not the one that gets to be the main antagonist. hell, i think most if not all of the original designs for kh are cool, but this guy just looks like gollum's head, with a beard, on ansem's body.

[User Posted Image]

i never really got into deadman wonderland and i think ganta's design is a big reason why... like, i know not every mc gets to be a bishonen, but i feel like the artist deliberately gave him too many unappealing features that just don't mesh together so great. that said, i feel that way about most shonen protagonists, and ganta is definitely not the worst offender, but i'm not even gonna get into those...

[User Posted Image]

i was not particularly impressed by the addition of more playable characters in littlebigplanet 3, but at least most of the designs were kind of cute. i do not feel that way about toggle. it is literally a burlap sack with a face, arms, and legs. and yeah, they're all sacks, but the others have some character to them, c'mon.

[User Posted Image]

i can't even...

[User Posted Image]

some people declare every large breasted female character as misogynistic and unrealistic. i think that's silly. while many do just exist for fanservice, i don't think that makes the design bad automatically, and people just go overboard with that in general. this, however, is different...

[User Posted Image]

wtf even is that?

and of course, there's this box of horrors. nothing sells happy meals like getting the **** scared out of you, right?

[User Posted Image]

oh, and can i just give another shout out to e.t.? i agree with every last word, trix.

I'll appreciate him from a distance.

I would like to give props to Burgerking for only improving their mascot design over the decades.
[User Posted Image]

Now onto bad designs.

I am very aware I am going to kick a massive beehive especially for this obvious choice and words. Skylanders Spyro and Cynder is also pretty yikes...

For Spyro he has inbred pug issues that do not make him look good at all. It only gets better in the show. Same with Cynder except she does not have pug issues. In fact she has boob issues like what is this?
[User Posted Image]
[User Posted Image]

Granted I posted splash art, but most of the models and figures don't really do them justice. Again, only the show gives them some really good looks. Every other dragon that is playable is pretty damn good in design.

FIRST OFF: Mrs. Last Dragon is very beautiful you all are just mean. Just because she’s short-snouted and big-eyed doesn’t mean she’s a bad design. I drew a dragon like her in eight grade, and my friend’s mean brother said that dragons couldn’t look cute and they had to be fierce, and he was apparently so upset about the drawing that he just straight-up gave me a book on how to draw “proper” dragons. Don’t be like that brother. Accept all dragon body types. Even Skyro.

Cynder is also beautiful, you just hate to see a girlboss winning.

Meanwhile, I would like to post my own opinions on this, by showing you all the monstrosities created when you switch 2D kid MMOs to 3D.

[User Posted Image]
If this was the Webkinz released in 2005, the graphics would be alright for the time. But this is 2021, and Petz is out of style. Also, the one thing that’s always weirded me out about Webkinz is how some animals are just randomly anthro, but what the hell is up with that lady dog in the back? It’s like they photoshopped dog ears and a snout onto Daily Housewives. Also Arte Fact is weirdly skinny and looks like a boy band member dressed up in outdoorsy clothes for a photoshoot.

[User Posted Image]
I can’t decide which is worse: her egg-laying hips, or her low-quality fish clipart dress. More like Dot the Bad Design Gal

[User Posted Image]
While researching Dot I discovered that Rory actually made an appearance in CPI and they gave him an absolutely horrible wig. Also, where’s his reflective jacket? Where’s his hard hat? This violates penguin safety laws!

I actually think Animal Jam: Play Wild has a good style. The 3D nature of the game even allows for some aspects and items that wouldn’t be possible in the computer version, such as customizable block sculptures for your den, flying animals actually being up in the sky instead of just being layered on top of everything, and items such as the fireflies that take advantage of the rendering system. However, some animals just don’t gain a third dimension with grace.

They’re not worth it unless you want to try making a Danny DeVito cosplay.

-snipped because yeah these are good points-


Bruh I never said a dragon cannot be cute (bruh I think Spyro is adorable as hell just not the skylanders design). Shisu is just bad design in terms of what I feel is cultural reasons. Usually I don't act like a mighty whitey going "this is race washing" but like, she's supposed to be more based on Sea-Asian culture. That is straight up Elsa's face on a dragon. Like I adore her older promo design now because it carries more of what she came from (as well as just more eye catching). They simplified a character design and I think it's a bit of a downgrade. Literally I just asked if they can change the ill fitting brows and lessen the humanish face. ALL I ASKED. I didn't ask for Elsa doing asian face my guy.
[User Posted Image]

Also Cynder. We respect her here in this house. Just wow did dawn of the dragon and skylanders (at first) do her dirty. Like we want our queens to have good **** here. Boobas and extra wonky anatomy is not girl boss. In fact let me post her her girl boss designs.
[User Posted Image]
[User Posted Image]
[User Posted Image]

For the record, I posting this for clarity. Because I ain't letting some mudslinging happen. Especially when I think the characters in question could be a lot better. If I was a girlboss hater and had massive beef with skylander's take on dragons, there would be a whole list. All dragons of all sorts of shapes are welcome if they are not looking like a race washer or pissing on a established character design before it.

...I apologize, I forgot Cynder had different designs other than the ones you criticized. I do like the ones you don’t like, but you’re not just hating on her.

But I still don’t see the problem with Sisu. Her face may look a bit humanish, but only really in the amount that makes it easier to interpret her expression. Those brows are kind of weird, but it’s Disney’s style to give their animals eyebrows for showing expression. The beta design was definitely an upgrade though. She looks like an actual sea creature with those majestic fins.

Forgiven. I am glad you can see at least where I coming from (well somewhat) with Sisu at least. I think you can give her like a gradient blue bushy brows and I think it would've been better imo. Least compared to the drawn out ones. But yeah you can see that she is more of sea creature with those more leafy dragon (the seahorse) fins.

It's okay to have different opinions. Just don't call me an Anti Girl Boss. That's crossing it lmao.

I'm in the "that's not too bad" park there for SE academy.

I know that first gen pokemon are easy pickings in terms of creativity. Though I am still going to pick on it because Muk and Grimer honestly aren't much different. Alolan Muck and Grimer are better but... Not really by much. They added more colors and pointy rocks. At least Trubbish and Garbador I can tell apart easier than puddle 1 and puddle 2.

it just looks very.. bland compared to other horsemons. spectrier has a lot more going for it (better design, ghost hooves, better calyrex mount form)

also its a horse but it only has 30 base speed

I do not like the horses at all. I like the concept of them being basically part of the "wild hunt" story for pokemon but I think it was done poorly. Maybe I'm the ass here, but we have what looks like a Ice Mudsdale and a Ghostly Rapidash. We probably could've gotten a lot more, but it's gamefreak and expecting that from them is like expecting politicians to actually address issues. It's not really gonna happen until a lot of **** is on their line.

The artist was closed to the end of their shift and didn’t want to start a new project.

(Also, I did not intend for my anti-girlboss accusation to be serious, and I’m sorry it came off that way.)

yeahhhh, i was trying not to post this because it is so bad that it felt too easy, but he deserves to be here for real.

it reminds me of something i read in a (totally unrelated) jrpg art book where the artist described approaching deadline and being so tired that he couldn't stop drawing. i feel like thar's what happened here too.
