the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.
A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.

Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.

The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.
Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.
But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well.
Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.
Reblogging over here. French animation tends to do better with diversity than Disney does, hahaha.

"Always believe people about abuse" sounds like a good rule but it isn’t.
It is really, really important to remember that abusers often accuse their victims of abuse.
instead of printing it off just use this blank thing that way you dont have to scan it or anything
so fill that out by pasting it in any art program and whatnot
then save it and upload it to that site
and itll give you an option to download it

Hey guys, I’ve made some pixel brushes!! I mostly just use gray tones, but sometimes I really miss screentone-like quality when doin’ uh, comic art :D?! I have made both Photoshop and SaiTool version, so I decided to share~
I’ll try to update if I make more screentone-like brushes or shape

He is most definitely like that way in both paths, just because it’s in his character. I like how it seems to be inverted tho; in the NHP he was hesitant as you said and then grew more confident, while in the HP he thought he was doing good for humanity when in the end he was left questioning what was really right.
Yeah, it’s a lot easier to at the very least accept something like that when you’re with the girl rather than fighting her. ;P
That’s one of the reasons why I like the NHP so much better, is because everybody figures out what happens and no character is left with loose ends. Even Adele learns about what happened with Gawain for crap’s sakes, and Ganz too, especially. So much less idiocy.
Funny tho, I never thought Jack blamed any of the elves for Cairn’s death, even though they were the ones directly responsible for it. Most of his anger in the HP is directed at Gawain because of his lack of understanding. He even seems kind of sad after defeating Gil?
He seemed sad with every character that died regardless of whether they were an enemy.
Good Guy Jack.
Oh my goodness, new level of appreciation reached. ;w;
