15 Best Anime Character Design Services

The term “anime” is derived from the Japanese pronunciation of the English word “animation.” It is essentially the Japanese animation style. Anime films and TV shows contribute to around 60% of all animation-based entertainment in the world. In contrast to traditional western comics and animation, anime has entirely different origins, goals, and audiences.

Anime was officially recognized as an art form by the Japanese Ministry of Education. In modern Japanese culture, anime is regarded as one of the most important forms of artistic expression. They are an important part of the Japanese publishing industry and have been adapted into various formats, including animation series, films, and, of course, video games.

Characters in anime drawings are known for their vigor, with excellent graphics and imaginative themes and designs that can effectively fascinate the audience. Anime is traditionally drawn by hand, but in today’s digital revolution, it is created using a variety of design programs. The following is a list of some of the most talented international freelance anime illustrators who are available for commissions.
