How can an 2D animated movies or shows have multiple animators whilst maintaining a consistent art style?

I understand how you can have one person for background art, or one person for basic sketching and another for colouring etc, but surely this would take too long to animate with only a small group.

Basically there are Key Frame animators who design the main elements, scenes and characters. There are also “in betweener” animators who design frames in between major frames thusly keeping the style the same. The in betweeners are generally outsourced in some cases and make far less money and work much more than the key frame animators.

They also work off of character model sheets that show expressions, poses, etc. Those are designed by the character designers.

Hope this helps!!!
