fav 3d cartoon?
There loads of 3d cartoons out now whats your favorites?
and have any of you guys worked on them?

My personal fav is kids one called Pocoyo for kids
probably followed by Captian Scarlet..

both showing on normal tv in uk atm...

Pocoyo looks so simple but i love it..how easy/ long would it take to get a character like him moving around to a newbie?

I'm more into serious animations like Final Fantasy AC.
Also, i dont know if anyone else has seen this, but a 3d movie called Appleseed. It uses 3d models with great cell shading(toon shading) so it looks like a 2d animation; like the stuff in Ghost in the Shell, where they use 3d animation for short parts for cars.

Although i also think Pixars stuff like Ice Age and The Incredibles are very well done and hilarious.(i love that little squirre thing)l
Learning Maya is a long process, although if u learn the basics u can create cartoon characters quite easily.
Do tutorials and learn the basics of animation (eg skeletons rendering) and in about two months u will probably be able to do what ur thinking of doing, but it could take longer; Maya is a very complex program and u cant learn it overnight......................................... ............unless u were a super intellegent robot that traveled in a jet powered, monkey navigated...............better stop there this might go on for a while.

im not sure what appleseed uv seen but the one iv seen is all in 3d only with great cartoon like shaders. Thats why all the animation is so smooth. Look at other 2d animes and the animations r jerky because everthing is done by hand and then put through computers for editing.
Dont know how many appleseeds r out there.
I think everyone in this thread is just saying what animations they like (2d and 3d).
Family Guy and American Dad r the most random hilarious cartoons i have ever seen.

The first time i watch American Dad i didnt think it was that good but maybe it was just the one ep.
I cant believe how funny Spongebob can be for a kids cartoon.

there is an old appleseed and a remake of appleseed. The new appleseed is about 3 years old. Its on my enternainment center. Its almost all 3d with toon shaders. The other 80's style anime.
