Computers have offered us a huge advance in many arts. Less paper is really the only advantage to writing prose but when it comes to comics, cartoons, live-action, and naturally video games there are some good things digital art can bring us. I know it’s been a benefit to me and comic making. However, cel animation does have it’s advantages. It’s been mostly dropped because of the higher cost of cels (Japan partly switched to digital after cel creation became expensive) but it does offer a look and style you can’t replicate as well digitally. Every tool has a much advantage and disadvantage notations as the formats they’re used for.
YouTube creator “Mother’s Basement” takes a look at cel versus digital animation in anime to see how the Japanese animation style is both aided and hurt by the switch to digital. Note his catchphrase does have a swear in it but this one is otherwise clean.
