More and more motion-makers are having recourse to this most basic form of art to bring a certain special "something" to their movies. This time-consuming technique has now been done away with by digital technology. But traditional drawing ability still plays a vital role in computer animation. Here are 23 beautifully executed examples from 21 of the world's most talented exponents of combining traditional techniques with digital means.


Hand-drawing adds magic to the digital environment

Drawing is the most fundamental form of art, dating right back to the origins of humankind when hunting scenes were depicted on cave walls. You might imagine that the digital revolution has finally done away with it, but you'd be wrong – more and more motion artists are incorporating traditional techniques into their output. They claim that this brings an indefinable magic to the movies they make on the computer!
