Character animation is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin.
The characters are the star of the show in this style of animation – if you’ve got a complex story to tell with multiple characters: humans, animals, aliens, dinosaurs – whatever you fancy – 2d character animation is the style for you.
Character animation works really well when trying to inject personality and emotion into animation.

2D stands for 2 dimensional – this means that 2D animation takes place in two dimensions, as opposed to 3D animation, which, you guessed it, takes place in three. 2D animation is widely considered to be the ‘traditional’ form of animation, stemming from the pre-digital age where most animation would be drawn by hand, frame by frame.
These days, it’s much quicker to produce 2D animation. The use of various digital software on computers has made the 2D animation process much simpler and slicker – meaning that 2D animations can be produced on demand and in a cost effective way.
Think you’re looking for something a little more complex than 2D character animation?
