A little update on this fanfiction.
So within this coming week I'll be making announcements about the fanfiction, as well as posting more characters.
But my DeviantArt has 2 characters and 8 aliens and there are more where that came from. If you haven't checked it out, the link is in the comment above. Let me know what you guys think of the designs.
I will let you all know there will be a sneak peek coming this Friday that I will release on both here and BTFF. I'll have to be a little less graphic on here since this is a TV-MA fan-series. I'll dial it back to TV-PG/14 for your guys sake but other than that, enjoy
(If you see another comment just like this, I had trouble removing it because I forgot the mini-poster had a little mature content that I didn't notice for a moment and I didn't want to alert people with so I'm just letting you know now if this looks like a repost, I was just trying to remove it right away since there's a 5 minute editing limit (stupidly))
Yes, but I mean like what types of gases he could shoot, stuff we could've potentially seen but have not seen?
I ended up figuring out a couple ideas, one which is Chlorofluorocarbon, which if Gutrot neutralizes just right, he can use to almost freeze a person, if not, the opponent will become an environmental hazard.
@Rexfan1333 That's another thing. I don't hate the reboot's art style either. I just don't like it and I just give it a lot of criticism. With Cartoon Network, we're now at a point where this is just unacceptable because like you said, Cartoon Network's reasons for wanting to go for these types of art styles is bullshit and they and their artists and animators are really just being cheap and lazy here. Like I said, it likely won't even matter that much to many if the story and writing is at least going to be good because the artwork and animation quality alone can turn many viewers away from the reboot. Having a strong story and writing is very much important but so is having some great quality artwork and animations. Artwork that can set the stage for the settings, environments, characters, etc. Animations that can deliver on many of the scenes that we're going to be seeing here. How are viewers supposed to be able to get invested with Ben developing as a character when he looks like crap? How are viewers going to be able to get invested in Ben's aliens if at least some of them look ugly and/or don't even look that much alien at all? How are any of the action scenes going to be good and memorable if the animation quality doesn't back them up? Yes I know we haven't seen any action scenes yet. It's just a point that I want to make. Overall, if they're going to have a strong and memorable story, setting, characters, scenes, etc, then they need to be able to be backed up well by a good quality art style and animations. Otherwise, there would be a chance that things can fall flat pretty badly. Just imagine Young Justice and Legend of Korra looking like the Ben 10 reboot or the PPG reboot or Teen Titans Go! or Clarence. Imagine Young Justice and Legend of Korra having the lower quality animation work that Cartoon Network Studios is being more known of making. Even with a strong story and characters and all that stuff, those two shows would fall flat pretty badly. Imagine the Ben 10 Original Series having this type of art style and/or this quality of animations. We would more likely not be looking up to the Original Series as much as we did back then and still do and Ben 10 would more likely not have been able to be as successful as it was back then. Omniverse had some good story aspects and moments to it but the art style and animation quality doesn't help to hold those good story aspects and moments up that well.
I previously thought that story, writing, characters and all that stuff are more important than visuals but really the visuals of a show, movie, video game, etc are really just as equally important. Everything needs to be able to work and blend together seamlessly and very well. If one of those seams hits a snag and breaks, chances are that everything can fall apart either quickly or eventually. Just something that I want to point out. A strong story is very much important but just as equally so does that apply to having strong visuals and animations as well.
