Where did the idea come from that going from paper to digital is a "step up"? We see this in other media as well. We ditch hand-drawn 2D animation for 3D, then wonder why the quality suffers. We inject our lines with stabilizers and homogenizers, then wonder why it tends to look the same. We force talent- instead of allowing it the time to grow naturally, we want to be good right now-- and take shortcuts to get there.
