Description:

For some reason, in S05E04, they used the worse looking season 1 art for the CMC Clubhouse, instead of the nice look S2 artwork with the second level added on. Kind of a bummer after how good Fluttershy’s house looked last episode

Also, the season 5 one looks more detailed to me than the season 2 one because of how it’s shaded. Generally the animators have improved their shading skills since back then anyway.

Looks like the season 2 version was meant for a different time of the year, one of the trees has flowers, though I imagine that was a mistake, as it’s supposed to have apples and those are not apple blossoms, and several of the plants in the back are shaded for fall, not to mention the other trees are barren.

… I just want to point out that, while it may deserve the "OP is a duck" tag, I doubt ’point out animation error’ would deserve the tag.

So with that, I thank everyone so far for not resorting to adding the tag.

Upon watching the episode again, there is a ladder inside the clubhouse, shown multiple times. So although this is probably just a mistake/oversight (the artwork in the rest of the episode, including the dream stuff and the boarded up clubhouse was much more detailed and shaded) you could argue that they replaced the stairs with a ladder (although that would be much more difficult for ponies to use). And i think you can see the upper level in this episode when AB is looking out her window at the clubhouse, but it’s blocked by the window thing so you can only see the spire part. I’d need to go back and watch previous episodes to see if the upper level is there without the external stairs in wide shots…

But I probably wont… it’s far too much effort just to determine the canonicity of the CMC clubhouse’s stairs.

Everypony in Equestria had a thing about stairs ever since they heard about Sombra. XD

(Yes, I see the main set of stairs. X3 )

You must have hated the beautifully drawn Fluttershy’s cottage from the previous episode then. And all the excellent camera movements, lighting, and depth of field effects they’ve been using more recently. Or you’re just trolling, I can’t tell.

I think the second level with the telescope has always been there in long establishing shots of the CMC treehouse. They just added stairs in Family Appreciation Day because they actually had to animate the CMC going up them to get to it. Also, though it’s certainly a matter of opinion, I think the richly shaded leaves kind of clash with the simple stick-trees it’s surrounded by.

You’re saying you think the flat, flash-gradient colored tree from s1/s5 looks better than the more richly detailed and multilayered shades tree from season 2? not to mention the second level of the treehouse being gone. I know art is subjective but In this case is say the s2 art is pretty objectively better.

Well, Babs, DT, and SS did take over the clubhouse in season 3. They probably wrecked parts of the clubhouse and the CMC just didn’t have time to fix it.
