* InioAsano, although he gets a lot of flack for incorporating (his own) photos into his backgrounds, definitely deserves mention. His characters are often still incredibly detailed and vivid - especially in OyasumiPunpun - and [[http://b.mhcdn.net/store/manga/3467/09-141.0/compressed/qgoodnight_punpun_v013_p124-125.jpg?v=1390933931 you can't argue with the results]].

* ''Literature/ScaryStoriesToTellInTheDark'' is (in)famous for its terrifyingly awesome illustrations by Stephen Gammel. The stories themselves are hit-or-miss, but every picture is guaranteed to give you nightmares.

* The art style of ''VideoGame/RainWorld'' is absolutely gorgeous and gives the right sense of an abandoned industrial environment and contrasts it with good animation and colorful inhabitants.

* J.H. Williams III's art for things like ''ComicBook/TheSandmanOverture'', ''ComicBook/Batwoman'', and ''ComicBook/Promethea'' is the modern incarnation of someone like William Blake. No one else in the business can do art so simultaneously realistic, bizarre, and beautiful.

* ''ReBoot'' considering that it was one of the first (and arguably the best) shows completely rendered in 3D. The amazing thing about this show is while it may look pretty tame by today's standards, it was created in the early 90's when they only had Windows 3.1 the first version of Windows to work with, and still maintained a high level of quality [[ArtEvolution which only increased substantially in later seasons.]]
** And then we have arguably the most popular work Mainframe ever made, ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars''. It was made with the same tech, and actually won an Emmy and revived ''{{Transformers}}''.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' uses an older version of Flash animation to create a wonderful and detailed world with great backgrounds and colorful character designs in what can only be describes as a massive SugarBowl of awesomeness.

* While ''Beast Wars'' (mentioned above), revived the franchise and gave it their first Emmy, ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', released almost 20 years later, looks stunning for televised CG. While it's telling when the quality just keeps improving in every season (let alone every episode). The fact that it won four Emmys (all of them around the animation) should also say something. And before ''Prime'', there was ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines''. Now say what you will about most of the other aspects, but there is no denying the animation looks just as good (if not better) as season three of its predecessor.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'': The backgrounds look just like they came right out of an comic strip.
* ''TheSimpsons'' While some of the first- and second-season episodes suffer from some noticeably limited animation, and even the newer episodes seem a bit stiff, seasons 2 to 13 boast some of the best hand-drawn animation in a half-hour animated sitcom format. Highlights include Lisa's disillusionment fantasy in Season 3's "Mr. Lisa Goes To Washington" that look like a political cartoon come to life, and any episode with Sideshow Bob, which sport some of the heaviest use of color contrasts and shadows this side of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''.

** ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' features Disney's most complex character (at the time, anyway). Complex not just because of surface detail but because Tarzan was rendered with as much anatomical accuracy was possible. Tarzan moves like a gorilla and pulls off spectacular acrobatics and his muscles still flex and move believably. Not to mention the groundbreaking use of CGI for backgrounds that beautifully blended 3D movement with a classic hand painted look.

''Tarzan'' garnered a {{Midquel}} a few years later which, despite being DirectToVideo, had visuals of almost the exact same level.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', like [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar the manga that influenced it]], features incredible amounts of detail backed up by the fabulous character designs and unique fight scenes. [[Creator/HirohikoAraki Hirohiko Araki's]] [[ArtEvolution constantly-evolving]] art style also allows each part of the manga to define and redefine its own distinctive appearance as the story goes on, while still retaining the same basic characteristics of what many consider to be the definite [=JoJo=] look.
