So I watched Tron:Uprising in its entirety and was extremely impressed by the art style. Usually , characters in these proportions bother be me but they were so elegant and consistant that I just.
Look at this gorgeous shit right here.
Of course, being a student in a film and animation related field, something seemed familiar about this style. Then, a few episodes in, I figured it out. Aeon Flux.
As it turns out, Aeon Flux was a BIG influence for the art style on the show. They even got a guy who worked on it, Rob Valley, to help with character designs.
Do I know my animation or do I?
Anyway, Tron:Uprising is up on Netflix. Give it a view, you won’t be disappointed. The plot is solid, the characters are beautifully animated, it is every bit of eye candy as Tron:Legacy. The voice cast includes Elijah Wood, Bruce Boxleitner, Mandy Moore and Paul Reubens (whose character is fucking terrifying especially if you know other things Paul Reubens has been in *shudder*). Bonus: They even got the same guy to do orchestration for it as Legacy (sorry, no Daft Punk this time, it is still really nice).
