Cartoons, Nostalgic right, we all love them and they used to be a revolution 3 decades back. Mickey Mouse, Tom & Jerry, Snow-white and Lion King, our generations don’t know them well but that was how animation began and we would like to honor it.
When it comes to cartoon animations, dimensions are important to create visual effects, we live in a world that is defined in 3D, but the animation was initialized through 2D around the 1800s, 2D was succeeded by 3D later on. The initial of 2D was through sketching different characters in different poses to demonstrate the animation. This was quite a difficult and time-consuming task to be done, but we can see many amazing movies through this cell animation during the 80s and 90s, such as “Snow White and the seven dwarfs” or “Bambi”. This made 2D cartoon animation a masterpiece in video and picture production.
2D cartoon animation, even after the 3D animation was introduced at the end of the 90s, was still renowned for its beauty and fantasy looks, But the question is why it is so popular even the latest 3D has cast its own charms on people and has made a huge impact? Let’s go through the perks of 2D animation?
