for those who do not know who cybersix is.
I always feel so pained when people don’t know Cybersix.
Cybersix is a forgotten national treasure of Canadian programming — it’s an unexpected collaboration between the Japanese studio TMS Animation and the Canadian animation network Teletoon. It’s a loose adaptation of the Argentine comic of the same name and cancelled only after a 13 episode season run (probably because it was too good to exist) and market distribution thereafter has been limited and obscure at best.
The MC is blatantly genderqueer who presents herself a male teacher by day and a lady crime fighter by night, has a brother who also happens to be a panther who also fights crime, has a bara love interest who is drawn to both identities, the villains are ex-Nazi SS agents, AMAZING ANIMATION, and so many other great things.
Also the opening is gorgeous.
goddamn YES just remembering this show is giving my crazy nostalgia. It formed so much of my art and appreciation for animation when I was a young thing. it was the best thing to catch on teletoon and holy shit I need it in my life again

THE ROAD TO EL DORADO
Production background painting for El Dorado. We had started using Photoshop on this movie, usually just to be able to paint overlays on board instead of cel.We then would scan the painted overlay(sometimes multiple overlays) and the background, separate it out from the board and assemble it with the background in the computer using Photoshop.This painting was actually all traditional and did not have an overlay.
ART HISTORY MEME; 6 series:
Van Gogh + Gold on Blue [1/6]
There is no blue without yellow and without orange. -Van Gogh
Neither a traditional animation or comic, but an experiment too corny to not see through. Hopefully both sides have a small victory for the moment.
Makes me wish I could make a series of Nido cartoons. :C
