The new Eevee engine is simply awesome. I have been experimenting with the 2D grease pencil and I have to say that it's pretty remarkable. See More
After Blender 2.8 update it's very powerful as 2D animation software and it gets extra value for being able to combine 2D with 3D elements if you want to. Biggest weak point is the limitations on traditional 2D painting tools when comparing to for example Photoshop and since it's a 3D software it might be difficult for beginners to use Blender's tools to their fullest.

Blender runs the Cycles path tracing engine under the hood. Cycles is a very powerful rendering engine capable of full path tracing (light fall off, caustics, volumetrics). It is mostly compatible with OpenCL and CUDA rendering, and is implementing mycropolygon displacement features. The upcoming release has a viewport engine called EEVEE whereby you can see and interact with your work in render mode in real time! See More
