With the development of digital technology, the outstanding artworks and rich Buddhist culture in Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes are being presented in a unique form. Among them, the creative method of condensing mural elements and artistic styles and applying them to animation cartoon works has attracted wide attention. This kind of animation cartoon technology can not only restore the mural heritage of Mogao Grottoes more vividly, but also greatly innovate the presentation of mural art. It is a new platform and an important medium for displaying and disseminating Dunhuang art heritage to the world. The differences between the animated presentations of Dunhuang murals typically reflect the advantage of animation cartoon technology. Therefore, through the comparative analysis of the original murals of the traditional Dunhuang mural “Nine Color Deer (Bensheng)” and “Sacrificing Himself to Feed Tigers” and their corresponding animation cartoon works, this paper explores the differences in the animation cartoon creation mode, technical means, and artistic expression effect of the two. At the same time, to extend with this background, this paper reviews the current development status of mural animation cartoon creation in China and puts forward feasible suggestions, which provide new ideas for the scalability of future creation. Finally, this paper proposes a vision for the digital inheritance of mural paintings and other heritage protection.
