In another world (Blender + PS + EbSynth + AE) from blender

Gensho Yasuda has mastered the art of making incredible anime-style anime artworks all within Blender, using a combination of brilliant shading work, and smart camera movements, and judicious animation. Check out their youtube channel and Twitter for a wealth of this type of artwork, with the occasional breakdown.

Omar Waleed - You can't escape

Next up is Egyptian motion graphic designer Omar Waleed's "You can't escape". This piece stemmed from Omar's desire to produce a piece with a "Cinematic" feel, to great effect.
