Are anime characters drawn separately or together?
For example, Boy A is near but Boy B is far, and both are dancing. Is Boy B only drawn for his movements same as Boy A, and with the use of software, they will overlap a character depending on who is near or far. More like a cel animation but with layers using the software.
And does this apply to every anime series and anime character movement like when Boy A and Boy B are fighting and both have interaction with their sword, are they drawn separately or together?
More like this, are both drawn together or separately but with the use of software, the girl's hand overlaps the boy's body:
I am talking about hand-drawn animes on paper, not hand-drawn animes with a drawing tablet.
