Drawing

Drawn animation – also known as traditional animation, or cel animation – is when each frame of the film is hand-drawn on transparent cel sheets. In the beginning, cels were used only for backgrounds. The characters were drawn on sheets of rice paper, then placed under the drawn background to complete a scene.

Free Hand Drawing

Freehand drawing is the ability to draw something without depending on instruments or something else to draw. We guide the drawing process with only our hand, and it depends on our observational skills. Instead of tracing the likeness of a cat, or using instruments to do it for us, we draw it by hand.
