Today's Animation vs. Classic Illustrations

I'm not sure it damns the entire animation industry in 2007 the way he wants it to, but Stephen Worth has an interesting post about the ways in which CGI animators could learn from more traditional artists. I think Ratatouille, for instance, wouldn't necessarily benefit from this particular style, but surely some deviation from the presiding aesthetic would be refreshing. The post is illustrated with beautiful examples, like this one:

I thought that the artwork of Watership Down was quite exquisite. It was like a water-colour in motion. The soundtrack was good too.

However, I wouldn't recommend it for young children, particularly unsupervised, as it was far too scary.
