[EDIT: Oct. 6, 2015] Added a link/video about the state of the Japanese animation industry (scroll further till you get to the embedded video)
All over the internet, there are many complaints about how bad the animation of Dragonball Super is. There's even a petition to TOEI about it (and no, I'm not giving you the link). All over dA, there's lots of screenshot redraws popping up to prove they can do better and how bad the drawings of DBS are. Well, we really can't deny how awful some of them are. However, please do take time to read and see the links below and let's try and get a different perspective regarding this matter:
tl;dr Animation has set budgets and since it's hard for animation companies to have in-house animators because it's expensive, they outsource and hire freelancers and even hobbyists. They do freelance work for several animation companies and have to meet deadlines so an episode airs on time. They are paid low (like inbetweeners are paid $2 per drawing) for their work. Maybe we didn't notice it watching DBZ as children but there have been instances in Z where there are poorly drawn scenes. It seems that animation is improved for blu-ray releases. Check out the 4th link above for sample pics.
On the screenshot redraws here on dA, the ones I've seen are good. But that's just one frame of a fraction of a second. Think, how about an entire episode? Or not even that, how about one minute of animation at least? That's already actually pretty long and consists of so much frames. Imagine doing animation as your career long-term and having tons of work with constantly strict deadlines. Again, I think the redraws are good but do think about how it is doing an entire episode and doing a lot of it long-term with deadlines and all other sorts of external pressures. That kind of work can burn one out.
Feel free to share my artworks on social media platforms (Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter etc.) as long as you CREDIT ME by LINKING BACK here on dA (preferably on the specific deviation page), DO NOT REMOVE MY SIGNATURE, and DO NOT CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN. Also, DO NOT MODIFY my artworks and use them on photomanipulations. No need to ask permission from me if you will share my artworks on social media but it would be lovely if you'd let me know. Thank you.
I'm fun-loving and optimistic Downers, negative thinkers, and rude people please stay away from me, lol.
