Believe it or not, 2D and 3D animation share many more similarities than differences, of course, the method in which they are created and the aesthetic look of the two can be quite different but other than that there are many related principles and rules that they both share.
The main similarities and most important is that they both follow the 12 principles of animation. These 12 rules that were first created by Disney animators many years ago are what is implemented in all successful animations to help sell the idea of animation and make the craft more enjoyable to the viewer. Whether you want to pursue learning 2D or 3D animation there are no shortcuts to either but this shouldn’t be seen as a negative thing, much like all other avenues of art, the important fundamentals are the building blocks of other types of art and animation, learning the 12 rules of animation along with propper technique makes expanding your expertise to other types of art that much easier.
