Second one- Bane:

Okay the animation on this is Great! But why must the lines be all scruffy?
Guess Im being picky..

Notice how Bane is practically an ape here?
The movements are very well achieved.
If only we could get these animators to use better styles and designs hmmp!

"Ze account the links go to has been terminated."?
Did you mean, "The links no longer work"?

The animation is done by Wolf Smoke Studio in Shanghai, China. The scruffy lines are their signature style, as seen in a previous short they did called Kung Fu Cooking Girls [link] . I personally like the style, but I can see how not everybody would. I think the scratchy linework gives the action scenes and extra sense of aggression. It's cool to see them working on some DC shorts. I like Wolf Smoke, but I didn't know these existed until I read your post. Thanks!

The skritchy art style is intentional, and is intended to evoke classical Chinese paintwork, along with the paint smear action lines. Another similarly styled show was Jackie Chan Adventures, which was excellent.

I really like this. the only downside I saw(which could just be the way it was recorded) is that the animation and linewirk could use some cleaning up. All in all I think this has the potential to be the best batman cartoon series since Batman T.A.S.

Er, the "Spain's smear motion lines" was intended to be "PAINT smear motion lines".

I'll be leaving a comment to Anya shortly, but I'll say the same to you as I'll say to her: the animation style and the Spain's smear motion lines are intentionally scritchy, and look very similar to traditional Chinese paintwork. The use of this style in very, very intentional, and I, for what it's worth, like the flair it adds to the show. Another very similarly styled show was the Jackie Chan Adventures, which was excellent.

La transformación de Bane quedó bastante bien, pero el corto en sí no es tan entretenido como el de Gatúbela.

I'm glad to see that Bane isn't anime skinny all the time.

I don't mind the style, a little break form the western norm is fine every once in a while. Bane looks good, pretty much the same, but Catwoman looks weird as hell. Then again, if this is supposed to be Chinese Gotham, then I guess it works.

Thats the same studio in charge of the animtion and designs! :)

As soon as the news of the catwoman shorts appeared, I searched down the internet for answers and found the videos and website of the company.
I believe the company director and lead animator is called Wolf something.. :D

Hasta eso que estuvo interesante... al menos no convirtieron a Catwoman en una Neko-chan más del montón. Y si, dadas las habilidades ninja-asi-sobrehumanas de Cat, pues no es tan ilógico el verla así.

En serio no reconociste la casa animadora del corto? Son los mismos que hicieron la escena animada de O Renshi para Kill Bill y el short Movie Blood: the last vampire.

Ahora defendiendo el diseño: La colorida ciudad de Shangai en los años 30. El traje de catwoman es una representación muy colorida de un gato, como todo lo que hacían en esa ciudad. Ella es una ladrona fresca y con aire picaro, poner un atuendo sombrio y "cool" no hubiera sido apropiado.

Aaaah y preparate porque el batman de seguro va a parecer dragon de desfile de año nuevo. Cosa que queda perfecta para el ambiente en que se desarrolla.

Por cierto, has estado haciendo dibujos de personajes originales de varios devianteros y no veo ni uno solo de Starlight en tu galeria. Shame on you girl

Vamos, por lo menos podrian darle morado en vez de rojo-power Rangers no?
Y la verdad es que al atuendo no es feo, sino que simplemente no va con ella.
Una ladrona con colores chillantes?
Vamos! Incluso Bane traia negro! :P

Y de hecho, Dicen las malas lenguas (Osea todos! :D ) que Batman o Bruce, es el de las trenzitas con quien pelea.
