      Animation before and today is very different. Today, as long as you have the best tools, you can animate and it can be done in a matter of days. This is totally in contradiction to what animation is before which requires extreme talent and dedication. Nevertheless, creativity is a must have in the animation industry both before and now.

      Your hub is very interesting especially for artists like me! Thank you for sharing it.
