A cel is a picture drawn on a transparent sheet called “cel”, which was used during animation production until about 20 years ago. Production has come to an end.
“IA”, which appeared as a vocaloid, is drawn using digital technology, so there is no hand-drawn cel.
In this production, the digitally drawn “IA” was redrawn with an anime touch to express it in a cel, and a transparent film “cel” was painted with paint to create an art work.
