What is the role of an animation artist or graphic designer?

The role of Multimedia artists and animators often fits in a portion of a movie-making process. Creating 3D characters by using CGI (known as Computer generated images) from an actor's movements. Other animators specialise in changing and editing backgrounds for different scenes. Many production companies have their own computer animation software that artists must work on with expertise. Video game designers also work on mobile gaming and online social networks. Some profound artists still use the traditional methods of drawing by hands and then creating graphics and multimedia from it.

So as we see, a variety of skills are required for anyone aspiring to make a career in Animation and visual effects. An important question asked by many students is whether they need to be good at drawing and painting? The answer would be ‘No’ as the traditional way of making cartoon films has been long transformed into an industry that completely operates on software and editing tools. It would be an advantage if one is good at arts like drawing but it is certainly not a pre-requisite to be a good animator.
