Frame by frame drawing over objects... that must be quite painful and it's not even as good looking as it sounds.

Thanks for the quick response, luckily I found it in an actual AMV I think it worth it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W66VXb1WSAE

so basically it's just pen tool whoring?

I love how this guy thinks! My idea would be similar to Animated's one but instead of each frame, I would draw the outline in photoshop and have one shape be used for 3-4 frames and flashing it with a glow effect would increase "life" in the (pen tool whoring)

Frame by frame in something like Photoshop or Illustrator probably is the way to go. However... I think you could probably get something most of the way there using Shape Layers in AE that might save SOME time (or it might end up being more hassle than it's worth). If I can find some time I'll see if I can record a tutorial of what I'm thinking.
