With 2D, you must absolutely illustrate every single art asset down to the last animation frame ~you cannot use the engine to interpolate ~yet if it's done well, the final 2D or 3D results could be indistinguishable from each other but for the 3d version having easy access to near unlimited animation and color effects.
This should be pinned or something.
