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 a software, they will overlap a character depending who is near or far. More like a cel animation but with layers using a software.
And does this apply to every anime series and anime character movements like when Boy A and Boy B are fighting and both have interaction with their sword, are they drawn separately or together?
I am talking about hand-drawn animes in papers, not hand-drawn animes with a drawing tablet.
