It must be an idea that has never been in the arena before, and do not forget that anime is one of the most difficult arts at all, so try to come up with an idea, pull the follower, and make him not stop watching, so the best way to come with an idea is to watch A group of translated anime, and try to record every idea you like on a sheet of paper, and when you finish, keep the ideas that you want to quote, and you have a solution of two, either you merge the ideas, or you come up with an idea derived from the quotes.

  • Scenario:

Add table and split scenes

In order not to fall into big trouble, decide before starting, whether you want to work in "anime" or "cartoon", because there is a difference between them. Anime has a distinct character, and working on it is more accurate and more difficult. As for cartoon, it is easier and the work for you is simpler. .
  • Drawing :

Supposedly when you say anime, the drawings must be really an anime, and this is a mistake many people face, when they do not know the difference between anime and others, because anime has a unique quality in it, and your characters must be distinguished by that, the drawing and characters must be of one character, For example, you want an arrogant character, then the drawing must express that, otherwise viewers will not notice the character's characteristics, so try as much as possible to link your drawing with your character's characteristics.
