>"Dude, Imalou said the designs will look good">"Just trust her, bro"Thanks a lot, /mlp/
>>36592313These designs do look good tho. Not as good as G4 but still pretty good.
>>36592326Way to kick the hornet's nest, Anon.
inb4 there is some background ponies that look better than the main cast.
>>36592313>thinking hasbro would pick good looking art for their merchI guarantee you they stamped their approval on three shitty vectors chosen via graphAlso fuck you, Imalou's designs are gonna be the only good part of this shitshow
They're only mediocre, OP. Stop doomfagging.
>>36592365>They're only mediocre
The small ones in the middle of those covers look fine really, just not sure about the colors, they seem to be making them all hues of pink/purple/magenta.Merch/promotional artwork always tends to look off from the actual movie/show stuff, especially early stuff. There's some really ayy lmao Mane 6 renders from 2010, and giant jaw EG Twilight from when that was leaked.
>>36592313>pointlessly doomfaggingThey certainly don't look bad. Bland, but not bad.Also the pig snouts don't help.
>>36592426Yes, her. As in girl with two X chromosomes and a terrible accent when speaking English
>>36592426>being this new
>>36592426>>36592484Fucking newfags holy shit
>>36592346Honestly how good would this be? They'd be ruining characters we don't give a shit about and we could fanfic the bg cuties
>>36592426imagine being this retarded holy shit
>>36592365>Pony is mediocre>Pointing this out is doomfaggingThe state of this board in 2021
newfags will never not be new
>>36592594But seriously... think Lou can take these reactions to the suits and get a little better final product? Hmm. Are we just alpha testers?
I'm actually out of the loop? So the character designer for G5 was originally a fan artist, like how Pencils went on to work on the IDW comics?
>>36592605Yes but in a similar fashion by selling their works to soulless corporations they are getting btfo and their work ruined.
>>36592605No, Imalou worked as a freelance artist for the Movie characters. >>36592603Yes, as a foreign freelance artist, she'll make a foreign billion dollars company change its mind
>>36592605She still comes to the drawthread once in a blue moon.I know you might be reading this Lou.
>>36592594>think Lou can take these reactions to the suitsno.some anons think the designs aren't finalized since g4 stuff was using early designs at the start, so you'd have to hope for that.
I'm okay with those designs.But i'm afraid that's will be the case of >>36592353
>>36592624Are the movie characters going to be different from the eventual cartoon characters?They're both Boulder but one is 3D and the other 2D right?
>>36592632I was thinking of doing some /r/s after the press event if I'm not dying of stress
For fuck's sake, first the manga turnd into shit and now this.Any person asking for everyone's trust should be publically killed, how the fuck they can fuck things up so badly at the point of turning the words "Hope, trust and faith" into buzzwords that immediately announce a fucking nightmare, for fuck's sake.Fuck.
>>36592664Don't freak out too hard
>>36592665what happened to the manga?
I have a canker sore on my lip! And I keep poking at it with my tongue! But that's only making it worse!
>most people didn't want old G4 characters in G5>now they're mad at new G5 characters
>>36592664Big if true.
>>36592690at least it will be easier to forget this crap
>>36592685Happens right after the series' finale and the protagonists are the aged up Mane5.
>>36592665Ever heard of a platitude?
>>36592685S9 finale got meddled in by Hasbro Writer of the manga had to google the finale to even understand it
>>36592664was it worth it working for hasbro?
>>36592685Nothing. Retard is just furious the preview showed there’s a gag that references the epilogue.
>>36592665holy basedyou are absolutely correct
>>36592664I was thinking of asking of asking some questions after the press event if I'm not dying of cringe, dread, and fan rage.Let me guess, you and your cohorts initial designs were rodgered beyond recognition in a process similar to >>36592331>>36592690It's not an impossible opinion to hold. Could they at least make them visually appealing? >>36592710It's never worth working for a big company.
>>36592706>Brings up the fancy wordsOf course you had to be another autistic monster.
>>36592690>most people didn't want me to punch them>now they are mad at my kicksJust can't please people.
>>36592705whats wrong with that?
>>36592688Truly the worst news today.
>>36592688there is a giant fucking pile of shit on the floor in the room, but we cant clean it up "because it has been here for x years and nobody complained then" "it has nowhere else to go" "how do you know it's shit"
>>36592713Hey autist, let me drop a turd in your soup and then take it out. It's gone now, so the soup is good to eat, yes?Mmm, mmm, delicious soup, right?
>>36592603>think Lou can take these reactions to the suitsUnfortunately not, her freelance work for them ended in September. I don't think she would be able to effectively do anything at this point.
>>36592690and it's pretty great that they had to dig them up for it anyways for a cheap brony pogface
>>36592690How retarded do you have to be to think that >I don't want g4 characters backand>I want well designed characters in g5are opinions that contradict in any way.
>>36592664if that's really you, stay strong
>>36592727>literally unable to take a joke (the gag)Wowie.
>>36592733Because he's a monster trying to derail the thread for the sick pleasure it gives to him?
>>36592742It's not a joke if it isn't funny in the first place.
>>36592313They're decent enough designs. Either you'll guys like it and bash the later seasons of the show or just forget about it.
>>36592400They don't work as recognizable silhouettes, which seems to be the major flaw of these designs to me, next to the very muted pink-purple spectrum color choices that don't "pop" like the G4 Mane 6 designs did.
>>36592690nobody is seething at new characterswe are seething because the new characters appear extremely bland and boring compared to the old cast
>>36592747Consoom your turd soup. Mmm, mmm, don't care, more soup, yes?
This is all your fault!
>>36592716... ohoh ok I have to think for you, fine.A platitude is an expression that is overused. Specifically, it is a phrase that doesn't have any inherent concrete meaning, instead serving an abstract function. As a result, it is useful for people who want to talk a lot and not say anything meaningful while still having people support the general feel of what they said. "hope, trust and faith" are perfect example of platitudes. You can easily imagine Obama getting up on a podium and, for example, telling everyone to trust in hope before leaving to go bomb more civilians.This matters because recognizing when a cooperate mouthpiece is spewing meaningless platitudes helps you not be surprised by the exact kind of thing you were just complaining about. It helps you avoid getting manipulated.

>>36592802You can say the same about 4chan hating it, its just business as usual.
>>36592776 >"Let's see... Yes, it's a hoof!"
>>36592808Politics is where platitudes manifest. That's what they are for, politics and marketing which is also politics but for objects.
>>36592313To be honest, it's pretty cute. Generic and a bit bland, but still cute. A mix of G3.5 and 4
>>36592828I was thinking more about G2 myself for some reason.
It could be worse. It could be so much worse.
Doomfags are being unreasonable about the designs. I absolutely think G5 is going to be trash because of everything we know about the current animation industry but these designs are hardly anything to get upset about. The color theory is off and reminds me of the pink barf of G3, but other than that they are better than expected. They're just cute wholesome ponies with no piercings or ugly "diverse" features.
>>36592353Agreed. Remember this amazing box art?
>>36592326They look like fucking shit.
>>36592917What the fuck am i looking at here
>>36592917Kek was that actually a product?
>>36592326>that occasional fpwp
>>36592365>ONLY mediocreYeah that's what sells. "oh it's ONLY slightly shit" you absolute retard.
>>36592313>at least it's better designs than ponylife ahahMore seriously, i'm waiting on seeing them in action to judge.

>>36593003Twilight likes little foals.
>>36593143Not seeing it.
>>36592313I'm calling it now, Imalou did the designs for these ponies.
>>36593156That's typically what the lead character designer does, yes.
>>36592978Twilight lured Sweetie into the Treebrary to groom her, but it turned out Sweetie Belle was a literal rapist
>>36592917hooooly fucking shit
There is no need to be upset
>>36593156Lou please don't 41%.
>>36593171I don't know man, I need more evidence to back up that claim.
>>36593194I hate this.
>>36593156>"Hey design these characters for us.">"Thanks, now we'll just peer review them and possibly make some minor changes."Compare these things with Imalou's usual style.
>>36593199>newfag simply can't get tr*nnies out of his headLurk another year before posting or return to /v/.
>>36593194I think... I think this might be the correct way to treat these characters. Don't run around creating ponfications of people because the pony design is just that kicking. Instead, twist the style of these specific characters into memes that properly benefit from how off they are.We zoomer postmodern humor now.
>>36593194even if these leaks end up being fake, I'm happy they happened. if anything just for the memories and the memes
>>36592346cherry berry already existed for g4 though

>>36592808Hi obamaSonic general is on /vg/ btw>>>/vg/
Changing the backgrounds helps a bit apparently.
>>36592827thats because our opinion is the correct one.
>>36593342Really does, holy shit
>>36593032>>36593046This but unironically
>>36593194i want to commit mass violence
>>36592346So just like g4?
>>36593194Fucking kek. I may be on the tail end of the millennial generation, but I ain't going to fight against the Zoomer tide. I admit their strange sense of humor has its merits. In the end, it's all just shitposting. We did the same when we were their age too, just differently flavored.
>>36593587I ain't even a zoomer I just enjoy making cursed things
>>36593587You will never be a real millennial.
>>36593670Well you're right. I was born in that weird transitory middle ground between 1995 and 1998 that's not quite Millennial and not quite Zoomer either. In many respects, I have childhood memories of aspects of both, making it difficult to distinguish which one I truly identify with. I'm 24 now, and most typical zoomers are just barely reaching drinking age now, and most millennials are reaching or have reached wizarding age.
>>3659370196-chad here. Millenials call me zoomer, zoomers call me millennial. I just want to fuck ponies for god's sake.
>>36593701>>36593786Born in 98 and I feel exactly this way too. I guess people would consider me a zoomer but I would associate way more with millennials. Most people assume I’m way older judging by the way I talk online. Zoomers irritate me
>>36592326They're ugly as hell.
>>36592326This. Not groundbreaking but I was expecting to want to put my eyes out
>>36593826I feel exactly the same. Born in 98 and I find zoomers annoying, specially the younger ones.I can't mingle with zoomers but can't exactly do it with millennials either.
>>36593786>>36593912If you think that's bad, try being only 3 months older than Billie Eilish. Being a 2001 kid sucks, I didn't even join the herd until s5
>>36592664I hope you're well, despite all the retards nobody can be mad at you.
>>36593873>>36592922>>36592986>>36592999>hates it and calls it the worst>can't admit commitment to hating it no matter what it looks like unless it was identical to FIMSad.
>>36594036Nope, the principles of harmonious design were explained multiple times today and that G5 ignores them completely. You ignoring the truth doesn't make it any less true.
>>36594061You sound like a faggot
>>36594073>"F-faggot...!"Yes, you surely showed him.
>>36593950>join the herd Go back to wherever you found it.

>>36594061You're angry simply because you want to.The designs aren't bad, but that doesn't make them good either. And that seems to be the general feel around the board, they're "meh".
>>3659378699 boyo, was lucky to not grow up in the tech when I was 3. Still too zoomer for the millenials.
>>36594073Great, glad we sorted that out. I'll take my victory and go. Don't forget to delete your posts that you're ashamed of.
>>36594094>Roleplaying as a shill for attentionPlease get a life.
>>36594095Most Anons seem to dislike the bland colors. Just fix the fucking colors and they'd be much better.
>>36594116Stop trying to reason with a retard who will keep claiming the opposite of anything you say.Just hide his comments and do as his parents, aka imagine he was never born.
>>36594094>NDAI figured as much, I would get anyone I talked about my idea under one pretty much at the start, its very copyable, completely under utilized, and not that hard to do if only my life would stop burning to cinders around me long enough to implament itAnyway, its great to see another probably feminist girl come first to the evul nazi sekret club once more to get news and share grief over pone
>>36594061Those were built on UPA design principles, Faust didn't make it up. They're good for expressiveness with high line effectiveness. That doesn't make them perfect, just economical for animating while keeping good form. Why am I explaining this? You're just a fucking retard and I'm wasting time on a faggot who just repeats a term he saw thrown around by other lemmings.

If they just fix the mouths I may accept it. That's all I ask.
>>36595025But I would not let that mar my opinion of the worl-Fact is that if you could fix the failings of the current paradigm,we would have a hero who's both been elusive and on time.Just one time.And then, we would all contrive new conflict!

I think the designs are fine. It's the stumpy faces that bother me. I know different generations brings different designs, but the G4 face designs worked fine. Maybe it'll translate different in 3D and probably look different by the time the show comes around in a couple years, but right now their faces look off at times.
>>36597852>I think the designs are fine.
>>36592664I can see your influence in the designs.
>>36592326Good attitude anon
>>36592400See the purple one's cutie mark looks like the head board of a bed with a pillow, while you can also see that it's in the shape of an eighth note. What do you think her name is? Lullaby? Sweet Dream? Or wait, Moonlight Serenade, haw haw haw.

>>36602229Did you even watch FiM? You're nitpicking about shit that didn't ignite your autism when G4 did it, even the eyebrows.
I ain't learned how ta speak fancy, y'all
>>36604955C'est bien, Apple Jack.
>>36592815No, because their personality is reflected in their designs. These ponies could have the most interest personalities with extremely complex writing, but be rendered as shit because their design not only fails to reflect it, it actively hurts said unique traits by making them all look too close to tell apart.
>>36592326Yeah, it's actually the artstyle that's the problem here. Specifically the way faces are drawn. These designs could work.
>>36601959>>36602067>>36603631That Anon is wrong. It has to be "Vous êtes intéressante" since you're addressing a female (in my opinion, a better choice of words would be "Votre choix de mots est intéressant"). And to say "Are you interested", it'd be "Etes-vous intéressée?". "Intéressez" is however the correct conjugation for "vous".
