A cartoon is a type of illustration, possibly animated, typically in a non-realistic or semi-realistic style. The specific meaning has evolved over time, but the modern usage usually refers to either: an image or series of images intended for satire, caricature, or humour; or a motion picture that relies on a sequence of illustrations for its animation. wikipedia on cartoons
A negative comment on Youtube. "This is rubbish! Why can't your cartoon be more like Disney cartoons?"
In answer, time, equipment and BUDGET. The average size of an animation/cartoon production team that works on a feature film runs into hundreds. Take time to watch the rolling credits on one of these cartoons and count the job descriptions. Animation production budgets run in the millions or even hundreds of millions. We are non-funded and only have me (Luke).
Exasperation - There will always be negative feedback and truth be told the first few comments like this really stung. However, in the time since we started animating, we have grown more confident and remain proud of what has been achieved in our journey into making cartoons. Our cartoon characters are in reality digital puppets motion-captured controlled by a webcam and are made with adobe character animator.
