Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Timm Style is a style of animation that has recently been gaining popularity. Characters are drawn with fairly realistic proportions and small eyes all round (though villains' eyes may still be slightly narrower than those of the heroes). People are drawn with lots of straight lines rather than curves, which makes them look rather angular.

This style tends to be used in action series, so characters and clothing will usually be drawn with just a few colours, simple shading and minimal textures to make them easier to animate.

This wiki commonly misuses the term Animesque to refer to these, though there is occasional overlap.

It is named for Bruce Timm, an artist and animator for DC Comics who uses this style. As a result, it's quite common in animated adaptations of DC properties, like the DCAU and DC Universe Original Animated Movies.
