Formal beauty is a kind of beauty without the help of experience and transcendence, and the creators of formal beauty can reproduce it through the use of formal rules. In the process of long-term practice, the rules of formal beauty have been summarized and abstracted, with many regular understandings coming into being, such as change and unity, rhythm and rhyme, balance and symmetry, hierarchy and harmony, etc.; hence a series of rules about formal beauty have been formed. This kind of transcendental beauty can reappeared through the arrangement of visual rules. In this paper, the animation film Legend of Deification which was adapted from the traditional Chinese myth novel The Investiture of the Gods and newly released in China, was used as an example to discuss and analyze the artistic design in its animation scenes.
