Speaking of the fox hunting segment from 31stCF, there is one scene that always struck me as very lovely, when they are chatting as they leisurely ride their horses through the woods. The way the dappled light streams through the foliage is very well done and pretty. I'll capture a screen shot later today.

Edit: Corrected the episode title!

Oh, pretty! I just now did a screen grab, but a static image really didn't capture what I was talking about. Your GIF does perfectly. Brilliant animation, imo.

Wonderfull! My photoshop refuses to save when I make gifs out of mp4's, an I am sure I do everything correct(tried multiple ways, still get the ! When saving...)

so we let the dogs do all the work while we sportsmen enjoy a nice horsy ride?

The lighting and colours were exceptional in this episode. The director broke a little from their regular palette to get those warm autumn colours. I also wanted to point out the composition of this scene. The shady rocks in the foreground help the tree tops frame the two characters nicely. Also, the rays of light flow in the same direction as the rifle, as if a higher power is on Bender's side.





This might be a bit of a stretch, but this particular frame is a bit Blade Runner-esque for me: We have two characters, one with the other's life in his hands whose humanity will in the end be either shed or in question. Did that make any sense?

Edit: Forgot to mention, in both cases the one with the power over life is a machine who chooses to be merciful at the last second.

Also, I'm wondering now if all the work they put into the dancing sunlight through the trees was to set up the rays in the viewer's mind for this dramatic moment.

His gun lines perfectly up with the light, now that you mention it... The power of the gods is on bender's hands and he has someone elses live in his hands. Looking deeper and deeper in the image once you see how beautifull it actually is(too bad this shot goes by so fast(zoom bender zoom huntsman and then less gorgeous shot)

Anyway, I saw the 'cat eater' on screen in law and oracle...
And to conparis the fish with the otters:


The otters don't jump in a heart shape, they go up together but push off. It aint very much like. Heart shape but I get the point: moon/sun, water, romantic, both water animals big grin

Aww, I love both of those scenes  love  They are so beautiful!
This is reading way to much into it, but I kind of like how in the Parasites Lost scene, they're still pushing away from each other, but in Naturama, they've come together instead and are a fully unified couple.

I never noticed this thread before, but it's giving me a whole new level of appreciation for the animators.  The lighting and colors are just . . . mind-blowing, in some of these scenes. That Naturama sunset and the forest in 31st Century Fox . . . all I can say is wow.

Two favourite moments from Billion Backs that go by a little too quickly to fully enjoy:




It just hit me that squashed!Kif in Naturama is a callback to this visual.  big grin


In the event of an emergency...


This is also called back to in 7a, when Bender uses Fry to beat off the Sunset Squad at the Near-Death Star. Can't find a pic but it's right before Fry says the old people generate electricity.

Callback?..or am I just looking too hard?




I took that as a callback too. A few other things are fun in this one :

- The golf-clubs are a callback to Bender cyber-golfing at the beginning of The Sting.
- The basketball is a nod to his love of the Globetrotters.
- The hockey-stick may have been mentioned in the original run, but right now all I can think of is Free Will Hunting, when Bender suggests they beat up Mom's guards with hockey-sticks.
- Pretty sure Lars is wearing the same shoes Fry always did.

So, because Shut In provided such an insightful commentary, I re-watched BwaBB. I really liked it so much better during this second viewing. And there were a couple of "background" things that tickled me. First, what the heck is this?



It cracked me up so much, even though I don't know what this creature is. The way it's curled around that sunken ship reminds me of my sweet little Eskimo Spitz curled up in her bed. That's from the scene where Calculon and Bender are dueling.

And then the scene towards the beginning of the movie, when the Professor wants to test something on the giant medium-sized ant. When the Professor starts talking about cotton candy and Fry's blood on pancakes, the ant's mandible thingies starts moves around, like the equivalent of a dog licking its chops.

That's how I felt about all the DVD releases, actually. I think they were just such a change of pace that it threw me off initially. (I remember hating Bender's Game at first, and now I really enjoy it.)

I love the sea monster - good catch! Although I'm probably the only one who thinks it looks shame-faced in that screengrab - like it's been caught doing something it shouldn't.  flirt

I can't decide if that ant was hungry or just neurotic. It had the most incredibly annoying voice, now I think about it. I enjoyed its death more than I probably should have.

Great observations Shut In. I think the hockey-stick might be a stretch though. I actually preferred the pace of the DVD's. Gave them a chance to stretch things out a bit. I do enjoy the micro-episodes(Anthology of Interest, Reincarnation) but I hope they revisit the full-length format again someday.



Although I've gushed about their colours before, I do appreciate their restraint with respect to a particular shade of red:

Foreshadowing?



After seeing the episode a couple of times I wondered where Leela got a replacement wrist thingie
after the prior one went into space with her arm.

I think Eternium is referring to the pink in Amy's sweatsuit, rather than her bra. And rather than creepy, as UrL said, I think it's just an unattractive "photo" of her.

futz, by foreshadowing, are you talking about Zoidberg's claw on her shoulder joint, a callback to how he cut Fry's arms off in WMIBaCiL?

It could be seen as both a callback or foreshadowing.

In the context of the scene the look on Amy's face is determined.

It's seen in more normal lighting in the scene that follows from this one. It's a zoomed in view of
Amy zipping up her hoodie top and is not quite as hurried as the running out her apartment main
door scene. On my hi-def LG TV it shows as a deep red but not a purple. If it follows general cartoon
reality rules for character clothes it would be the same bra usually always. Not sure if the red gets
darker if Amy doesn't recharge it, though.

Close, her undies are pink in the getting-dressed-for-her-date scene but the dress she wears
is close to the color red of her "day time" bra. It's also close to the color of her Beta Romero.
She is wearing a purple bra in the final scene of PYHOMS, though.

To clear this a little out:

Photoshop says her bra in TBE is more pink-ish. I also noted that leela's lingery in Zapp Dingbat looks a lot like amy's bra(only it's a bit longer with a bow, but the color made a little darker is like amy's bra as well as the ribblet top)

If you adjust the brightness and tone to similar levels the color is pretty much the same.
I'd call it a maroon or burgundy, pink usually refers to a pastel tone.

The fate of The Universe(s) may depend on it.

Of course we could expand the discussion to include Leela's usually
not wearing one or Grandma Mildred's sugar cookies. But that might
be worthy of it's own thread.

I wouldn't call that red. More fuchsia or magenta, something like that.

But really I just wanted to show my appreciation for the in-depth bra analysis. Shine on you crazy diamonds! Shine on!

I converted the image to 32-bit 4 color or CMYK (Cyan/Magenta/Yellow/Black) and the color of
the top left bra reads as 33/99/47/1 (percent of 100% pure colors) more or less.

Magenta would be 0/100/0/0, Red would be 0/100/100/0. The 33% Cyan and 47% Yellow would
mix into a complimentary color of green which will darken the Magenta without using black.

Magenta (and fuchsia) are very bright and light red/pinks.

Peace-out portobello.



Not to keep going on about the colours, but check out the shadows behind Bender and Langdon Cobb. It looks pretty accurate for the shade/tint/hue that would be cast from green light.

(Notice how I avoided actually naming the colour? wink )

Well in Bender's shadow his arms are raised higher than they actually are, and in Langdon's shadow his arms are on his hips yet he actually has his hands in the air.

Ok, I'll bite. Due to the quantum nature of the Bryorian Ego, there is a slight time-dilation-discrepancy between emitted light and resulting cast shadows. Yes. That'll do. shifty

That's a pretty shot, Koob. I've always wondered how animators convey so convincingly bright or phosphorescent light. Must be all color theory, which I suck at. smile

I'm sure someone has pointed this out, probably several times, but I'll say it here with pictures. I love how the icefields of Hyperion are folded into Leela's comatose dreams:



Because there's a print or painting of the vista in her hospital room:



And I also dig the squeezey toy on her nightstand, no doubt a real-life gift from Fry (instead of the dream gift found in his locker).

This sort of occurrence jibes with my experience. e.g., whenever I have to pee as I'm asleep, but my body won't wake up, I will dream about using the restroom, but feeling no relief no matter what my dream self does, and feeling increasingly frustrated. Or, if my alarm has gone off, and there's music playing, my brain will incorporate that music into my dream.

Ha, I said I was busy, which I am. But I can always find time for The Sting. smile

I love that scene, it's one of favorites in the whole show! It's so beautifully animated, and I especially love the pink-blue rings over the icefields.

The painting in her room and toy on her nightstand are great. I didn't notice details like those the first time I watched The Sting since I was so caught up in the story (and I'm pretty oblivious sometimes), but seeing how the parts of her dream fit in with what was going on around her was awesome upon repeat viewings!
