You know, I'm really glad to see the pre-"economized" concept of Cheetara, as I'd actually been puzzling for awhile over some of the hard to make out details of the costume—for one thing, how much of what we're seeing on her legs is her "boots," her pants/leggings, or her actual bare legs!
Well, this show was a team effort. In order to move things along, we handled the R&D and initial designs for most things here in the states first. Eventually, we passed things to Japan and they underwent a pass that helped economize the linework and convert to a style that was comfortable for the animators to work in.
thats awesome, the animators there have great draftsmanship! i happened to met Ashino san there, really cool dude. but yeah, maybe some day here in the states we can have more animation work in house like that style. thanks again for posting these : )
