In 16th century, there was an upcoming in the cartoon industry. The ‘caricatures’ were the beginning of this. These drawing were influenced by Italy, which showed the features of comic stories. The great Italian artists like Leonardo da Vinci, Gian Lorenzo, Annibale Carracci also did these paintings.
In the ‘Golden Age’ (1770-1830), amateurs and semi-amateurs like Bunbury, Townshend, also stepped into the filed. In this era, they introduced more playful styles through caricatures.
Then there were magazines. They also revealed the political humor to the world. There was a high demand for illustrated magazine in Paris and in Britain.
Most of the time, the cartoonists’ attention were gained by the political field. So, there were lots of comics regarding the politicians.
However, when it comes to the present, the 2D cartons has become the 12D and won the attention of the people all around the world. There was an era, when we were younger, only the kids watched cartoons. Adults, especially teenagers saw these interesting things as useless. However, with the time, the animation production industries were able to won each and every heart in the world. The main reason for this is the quality of graphics. Sometimes, it’s kind of difficult to differentiate the cartoon graphics from the movies which have real characters.
There are hundreds of animation production industries at present. For example, Blue-Sky, Cartoon Network, DreamWorks Animation, 20th Century Fox Animation and etc. If we take DreamWorks Animation for example, this is one of the most renowned animation industries in the world. The famous animations like How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, Shrek, and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and etc. are productions in this industry.
The best thing about animation is there is no age range to watch these things. Moreover, unlike some movies, there are no brutal fighting and killings in these animations. So, even the kids can enjoy these.
The other thing is, most of the animations showed us that the real love really exists and we need it to survive. But, when it comes to the animation, ‘Frozen’, it showed that love can happen to us also from our own family members, not only from a lover. Because of this concept, this animation won many awards.
When it comes to the market, it takes a major role in advertising the animations. For example, let’s take the animation “Frozen”. Almost all the girls fell for Elsa and Anna. When it comes to birthdays, some girls also wore as Elsa or Anna to celebrate the birthday. The point in this is the animations have created a different world for us. No matter what, we try to live in this fantasy world because it’s inevitable that the animations create a world where we really want to live in.
