This is really cool. Very cool BG. Hardly seen lighting and a 3d model done like this before. Very well done. You can give the industry a few lessons. I guess it is hard for this art style, when determining where the sketch lines go when the light dissipates and resurfaces. Too many, too less, or the Misplacement of the sketch-lines could cause the art style that it is to suffer. Well done.
Does it matter? It all looks equally good. 3D just has a different feel than 2D. I see 2D as vibrant, precise, bright, and likable. 3D to me does come off more real, bulky, and the convert of reality into fantasy, but I like 2D fantasy better. To me its the furthermost away from reality.
As Naniga123 said before me, Youtube says the video you gave the link to is unavailable. I don't know what that's about, but i'd really like to still be able to watch it. Is there perhaps another link or..?
This guy does 2D almost exclusively, so this is 2D but instead of drawing complete new frames to simulate 3D he just has a bajillion layers and moves/distorts a ton of 2d pieces. So he only has to draw one squid and one man in this case, but it would have been a pile of work to move all the parts flawlessly. I haven't found anywhere where he says what program he uses.
