I think there are ways around it by using 3d or CG type stuff but personally to do these awesome 2d things I think you need some skill in drawing.  You be the judge.

Live2d Euclid is looking amazing.  I want you guys to keep an eye on this software.

Imagine combined several methods together to create your anime.

This one would be great because you could draw it yourself or again you can get the aid of a 2d artist and then combine it with this software and if you remember we showed you in a previous tutorial how to make Anime Backgrounds.   Well combine this and it looks like it supports MOCAP and whalla you have a 2d show.  It also looks like it supports facial capture so you can actually get your voice actor and actually record as she does lines.

Wow guys!  Awesome blossom.   I hope you are starting to put alot of these things into thought and you are starting to plan your anime.

Imagine the possibilities.

 

So this was quite impressive.

They did this live.  Now imagine if you applied this system applied to your animated characters.  You could create an anime quite quickly.

Here is how to do it.

 

Personally I think you could use this for head animation and then use something else for the body like 3d cellshaded to match the head.
