We have the authentic Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he said, the curse of Allah subhanho wa Taala is on those that to draw images. Now, what we also learn from this hadith is that on the Day of Judgment, they will be called, and they will be taught bring life to that which you created. So what we see from this is that it is as if it is a challenge to Allah subhanho wa Taala that I can create, just like you create, and that is what is understood from this hadith. So now when it comes to video games and TV, you're not actually creating still images. So TV for example, you're just video recording someone or something that already exists, that is a last panel

And as for the issue of animation, then as long as it does not resemble the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning human beings in particular than that is something permissible to partake in. The only exception to this is if we're using it for educational purposes. If it is for educational purposes, particularly for children, you can even draw cartoons that are human like and scholars have allowed to that and all other circumstances and situations. Just take the caveat. You don't want this to imitate the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala to try to have some sort of differences in your drawings in your animation, so it doesn't look like an actual human
