* If there's one things people remember the 1988 film adaptation of ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' for, it's its incredibly fluid & detailed animation, being on-par with a well-done Western-animated production. To elaborate on the film's level of detail, watch the characters' mouths when they talk. Because ''AKIRA'' is one of few animes to feature pre-recorded dialogue, it notably forgoes the standard use of lip-flaps, meaning that the character's mouths move in perfect accordance to what they're saying. The whole film is also shot in a solid 24 frames-per-second, ''twice'' the framerate of the average anime; that's not even getting into the fact that this entire film utilizes over ''160,000 cels'' over the course of a 121-minute runtime, with the only use of digital animation being the pattern indicator on a single medical computer. As a result, ''AKIRA"' is still widely considered to be one of the best-looking anime to date; [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtPhrCTjMtQ the trailer alone]] does an excellent job at showing just how amazing the entire film looks.

* The works of Creator/TetsuoHara are well-known for their highly detailed and intricate art styles, with ''Manga/FistOfTheBlueSky'' being a particular example of his artistic talent (every panel is startlingly close to photorealistic). Sadly, Hara ended up developing keratoconus, an extremely rare degenerative disorder[[labelnote:Note]]The chances of developing it are one in a ''million''[[/labelnote]] where the cornea tightens into a conical shape and become nonfunctional, in one of his eyes. This has killed his sense of depth perception, leaving him unable to draw the beautifully realistic manga that were his claim to fame without an assistant.



%%* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. Seriously, [[Creator/HirohikoAraki Araki]] has come a long way as an artist.

* 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/WarrenTheThirteenth'': Will Staehle's lush illustrations are some of the most enjoyable parts of the book. Special mention goes to the ''beautiful'' establishing shot at the beginning of the book, as well as the surreal, sinister images in Aunt Annaconda's scenes.

* ''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 ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''.
