No, but skills at one doesn't necessarily translate to the other; the results come out different.
Coloring digitally can be a completely different world for those who are used to a single medium. Instead of mixing paints together you pick from a large palette of colors. Obviously there are in-application controls to pick colors in various advanced ways, but nothing can replicate blending paints by hand.

In addition to the issue of moving to picking predetermined colors rather than mixing them, the results on a computer screen never match up with what you can get on paper due to the transition between RGB (Computer displays) and CMYK (printers), as well as the slight variants between display panels. This was especially a problem back in the CRT days, but cheap LCD screens to this day still have some color or gamma issues. They even created a system of matching printed colors on paper to what a monitor displayed called "Pantone", which only complicated the color situation even further.

The problems with colors on screen translating to paper was apparent during the "Batman Damned" comic book fiasco, where a brightness error when printing revealed Batman's penis to the world.

Remember when John K was on Tiny Toon Adventures, he thought Elmyra was Elmer in drag?
Elmer Gender Reasignment

“I remember being shocked when I heard that Elmer was going to have gender reassignment. I wonder who assigns you a new gender? God? Did He call down to Chastity and command her to "Report to Reassignment Quarters, pronto!" It makes it sound like it's against your will.” - Kricfalushi

John K. talks about hating Elmyra like she was the brainchild of some ravenous SJW / PC culture machine's desire to diversify, when she was not. He's just mad because something's 'different'.

John, no-one's stopping you from forever hauling yourself away into a basement and watching nothing but 50's Looney Toons, which -- to the benefit of society -- is probably exactly what you should do.

Of course they did that for Pepe LePew, Tweety, Sniffles as well... but that doesn't matter, does it?

There was kind of a clash between the two groups of people on Tiny Toons - the guys who went on to Ren and Stimpy and the ex-Groundlings people who went on to the other 90s WB shows. The former thought it was going to be like the old days, and it wasn't, so by the second season they were gone to their own show and history.

Most of them can look back and laugh now, though.

I sometimes wonder what happened to Eddie Fitzgerald. The last I saw, he dropped off the radar about the time John Ks degeneracy came to light, but a look at his IMDB page doesn't show any work since well before that.

Except that new Ren and Stimpy show, and Cans Without Labels. :story:

He moved to Pennsylvania and left the animation industry.
I enjoyed reading his blog, til it's end. Lots of interesting observations on animation, design, comedy and even science.
Ahhh...Following Eddie, Kali Fontecchio, Katie Rice and Marlo Meekins on their blogs, good times! I'm glad these people are doing really good in and out of the industry and hopefully left all that John K shit behind.

I remember seeing an interview from years back where one of the animation directors, Jon McClenahan, got caught in the middle of the various disputes between the artists and writers (and this was after Eddie and company left for Spumco, believe it or not). When Jon got advice from the in-house animators (he did his work out of Chicago, mind you), they kept telling him to change things despite thinking the written material was just fine. This nearly got him in trouble with Tom Ruegger and the other writers until he explained his side, having previously not been privy to the divide. I think the whole artist vs. writer thing is something you've just got to expect in the animation industry, especially on an old-school comedy like Tiny Toons or Animaniacs.

I know it’s been said before but what even is there for John to professionally do at this point, he has alienated everyone he has ever worked with his douchbaggery and cruel work habits and become a laughing stock of the industry, was renounced from Nickelodeon, had some of his closest co workers die off or renounce him and been outed as a disgusting pedo child predator with a history of abusing and using teenagers most of his life. His life peaked over a quarter century ago with R&S that is admittedly a work of genius, but he slowly squandered all his genius through a combination of ego, pride, drug abusegeneral douchiness towards work colleagues and pure sexual degeneracy that has cost him any real success in professional animation ever again. I’m honestly shocked the guy hasn’t fallen into suicidal depression and cut himself off from the world completely.

Some people are either scuzzy or stupid enough to give him work. He'll just never work in anything that people will want to see again.

Okay I'm confused. So John didn't work on the series, right? Then how come there was one episode (Who Bopped Bugs Bunny) that credited him as 'model designer'? Was this something that he done just as a freelance job? Did he actually do this in-house? If so, then how come they let him do some work on one specific episode and nothing else?

BTW if you're wondering, he only did the character design of Sappy Stanley, the antagonist of the episode.
