Animation is a rapid display of 2D or 3D artworks and models which create an illusion of movement. The characters are made to dance, move, jump, sing, hit, fall and do all kinds of movements. It is very much different from cartooning, where images, sketches or drawings are static. Animation thus is the art and science of breathing life into characters.
