1. Introduction: Welcome to my class about animating in Procreate. I'm Flo and you might know me from my easy to follow Procreate tutorials on YouTube. Here in this class at Skillshare, I will show you all the steps to create this cute Bee animation in Procreate. I have some resources for you, like special brushes, a sketch to get you started, and a color palette. All you have to do is follow my steps and you will be able to create this cute animation in this class, I'll first explain all the features of animation assist in Procreate. Then we will start making a bee illustration. We'll start with the bee, and then we'll illustrate our flower. Next, we'll prepare our illustration to animate it. And then we'll get started on the real animation process. And finally, once your animation is finished, you are ready to share your work. Once you have followed this Skillshare class, you are ready to create your own cute animations. So how about it? Let's get started. 2. What You Need: Welcome to my class about animating in Procreate. To follow his class, you'll need a couple of things which you can download in the resource section, Be sure to use a browser though, because in the Skillshare app, you probably can't download the resources. The resources include a special color palette, so you can use the same colors as I'm using during this class, I have included a sketch that I used as a base for this Bee illustration. And you'll find a special brush pack with Flo brushes to create that very fluffy hair for the Bee, for instance, for the canvas, I'm using a 2300 x 3000 canvas. But it really depends on your device, how big your canvas can be, and how many layers you'll be able to make for your animation. If you don't have a very powerful device than I would advise to make your canvas of bits smaller so you can make more layers. And if you still can make a whole lot of layers, then make less layers than I'll be making during this class. Even with less layers, less frames, your animation will still look really cool. So go and grab those resources and get ready to dive into animation in Procreate. 3. Animation in Procreate Explained: To get started with animation in Procreate, you'll need to turn on animation assist. You can find it at the wrench, the Actions menu. And when you go to a canvas, you'll find animation assist. If you turn that on. A little bar will pop up at the bottom of your screen. And it'll contain all of the frames in your animation. And each of these frames is a layer or a layer group. In your Layer menu. You can see all these layers, but these could also be layer groups. Procreate sees a layer or a layer group as a frame. So here you'll see all of these frames. And you can also pick a background frame if there is like a surrounding for your animation, which will be the same through out the animation day. You can set it as a background. For instance, we have this guy. And if you don't click that frame, you can set it to background that way. This frame, this layer will be shown in every single frame. And you can actually also make a foreground layer. We don't have one here, but for instance, if you would like some grass and your foreground, you can put that on a layer at the top. Then click the layer and set it to foreground, and that grass will be visible throughout your entire animation. Now you could either add a frame to your animation by going to F frame, or you can go to the Layer menu and click the plus for a new layer to add a new frame will also see Settings here at the bottom. And here you can set how you want your animation to play. You can select loop. Let's demonstrate it by clicking plate. If you go for loop, your animation, we'll keep looping. It'll play, and then go back to the start and play again in an infinite loop. Now let's see ping-pong. Ping-pong. It'll be like a ping-pong. It'll play from the beginning to the end. And then from the end to the beginning again, like a ping pong ball. And then we have one shot. Let's go to the beginning. One shop is exactly what it's saying. It's just one shot. Your animation will play only once. And let's check the other settings. You can see, well, let's put it at loop again. You can see frames per second. That's how fast your animation will play. Can go even to maximise z, that will be really fast. And 24 frames per second. That's a pretty normal industry standard for smooth looking animations. But 12 frames per second gives you smooth animations as well. Then we have the ions can frames. That's actually the amount of other frames you'll see outside of the frame that you're working on. So you'll see the previous frames and your animation that'll make it easier to make a smooth animation because you can see where it was before. Well, before the moment you're animating right now that we have the onion skin opacity, you can make them more transparent as way. If they are bugging you a little bit. You can also use blend primary frame. Then I'll actually blend the frame you're working on and will blend that a bit with the other onion skin frames. Then we have color secondary frames. That'll give a nice color to those other frames. Students, onion skins. If we turn up the opacity, you can definitely see it. That the ones before are red and the ones after your frame are green. And that'll make it easier to make a smooth animation. Now let me turn that off. And these are really the basics of animation and procreate. Now let's get started and create our illustration. 4. Bee Illustration: The first step in our animation process is creating our illustration, which we will animate later. I have created a sketch which you can download through the resource section. Or you can create your own sketch. Of course, before we get started, do make sure that you have the brush set ready to be animation brush set. It has all the brushes that we'll be using during this tutorial. Here in the layer section, you see the B sketch. Before we start coloring everything first, let's lower the opacity of this layer. You can do that by clicking the N and using this slide. Let's turn it to around 20%, but you can use a different percentage if you prefer. Of course. First let's fill our background. Will make a new layer for that. So let's click the plus and drag it underneath our BY sketch. Let's fill it with this blue here on the right side. And you can do that by dragging in the circle and dropping it onto your canvas. Now we are going to make the lower side of the canvas a little bit lighter. And we'll do that by using the soft brush. Put a color, we will pick this lighter blue color here on the right. The opacity of the brush is set to 40%. And we can make it a bit bigger. Ls go for around 20%. And let's make some horizontal strokes going upward. And let's make it lighter here at the bottom. So we'll make more strokes. There are brush is a little bit transparent so you need more strokes to really make it light. And make this into a smooth gradient. You can go to the magic wand here and click Gausian blur. Then select layer and slide your pen to write. Too blurred as layer. Let's go for something around 25% and then click the magic wand began to get out of that main. Now we can start coloring our b. Let's make a new layer on top of our background layer. For that, let's click the plus. And first let's use the monoline brush color. Let's pick this yellow dot first color in our color palette, which you can of course also download through the resource section. The opacity of this brush is at a 100% and the size is at 20%. And let's just follow that shape of the body and make a nice rounded body for it. You can hold your pen and place to make it snap to a perfect shape. A, you don't have to make it too big. Let's go for something like this and then drag in the color to fill your circle. Let's put the head on a separate layers and let's go back to the Layer menu and click the plus for a new layer. And let's grab this dark color over here. That's the fourth color into color palette. And let's just choose our sketch to fall on a cheap to head. You don't have to be super tiny. And then once you have that shape, drag in the color to fill it. Now let's create the eyes. Of course, you can't really see your sketch anymore now so we can lower the opacity of the layer with the head. Just click the em. Use the slider to lower the opacity to, let's say, around 50% and create a new layer on top 40 eyes. For color, we will pick this live color right next to the color we just used. And first let's create this small i. Hold your pen and place. And you can actually use Edit Shape and move around these handles to shape your eye and then drag in the colour like this to fill it in. The other, I will put that on a separate layer. So go to the layer palette again, click the plus for a new layer. And again, we'll use up monoline brush to create this i over here. Hold your pen and place. And again you can use Edit Shape here at the top and move the handles around. And so you have an eye that she'll like drag and a color and you have your eye, not a, we have created the eyes. We can go back to that head layer, click the m, and turn the opacity back up again. Now let's start adding that furry body, that furry texture to the body. Let's go to layer three and make a new layer on top of that, let's click the plus. And then for our brush, Let's go to the soft, short for brush. And for a color, we will go to the third color and the color palette. The opacity of this brush is set to 80%. And for the size, let's make it a bit small. Let's go for 12%. And with this brush, the angle of the firm, it depends on the angle of your pen. So you'll have to change the angle of the pen as you move over the body of the be here. Start here. And we'll change the angle as we go up. And it's followed a rounded shape. And you can go even smaller for our brush to 9%. And we'll start at the back. And once you have that, you can switch your color and pick this yellow that we also use for our base shape. And then we'll go over that edge. Let's make it bigger again. Let's go for 15%. And we'll go over that black area. At some ferries here at the bottom. And change the angle as you go over that body will make a band of black again. So we'll go back a third color here. It's not really black at small like a very dark brown. And now let's go over this area. Changed the angle as you go is make these circular motions over the bee's body. All the way to the front here. Change the angle as you go. Slowly building up that for, for our little bumblebee. Therefore to have final layer of further, we will make a new layer. So first go to the Layer menu and then click the plus for a new layer. And then pick that yellow again. Now let's go over the edge. Keep an eye on the angle of your pen. Adding some nice for which also go a little bit warmer. Or we can add the second color here, just around the head. Adding some warmer. And if you use little pressure on your pen, your stroke will become less opaque, so it'll become more transparent so you can slowly build out warm color up. Let's also add some firm to the top of its head here. So let's go to that head layer, layer four, and go back to the very dark color that we used for the head. And we'll have to change the angle over pen to add a little bit of further here. Like that. Give it a furry little head. If you're having trouble creating this for her, you can also go to the wrench than to Canvas and flip your canvas horizontally that way, the angle of your pen hide feel a bit more comfortable. Next, I'd like to add some more depth 2D eyeballs. Let's go to those layers first, this is the back one in the back, the right one. Let's turn on alpha lock on this layer. That means that the layer is locked. We will only be able to paint on a shape that is already there. We won't be able. We'll let, let's just check it. Let's start on alpha log and you can see this checkerboard pattern around it. Do you campaign there only on that white oval? And that's super handy. Let us go to the soft brush. And for the color, we will use this light grey. And let's make the brush a little bit smaller. Let's go for 10%. And let's add a little bit of shadow to the left side of the eyeball. And like that. And then we'll go to layer six, the other eyeball. And again, we'll turn on alpha log. So our pain will only show up on as ival and will make the left side a little bit darker. Now let's switch our brush to, to find liner brush. And let's pick this fourth color and the color palette. We can actually merge the eyes. Now, let's squish them together, these layers. And now let's add little pupils. You can just follow this kitsch and add these pupils. Next, I would like to add these little antenna and its feet. Let's put them on a new layer. We can make a layer on top. We can make a layer on top of layer seven here. Let's click the plus. So that's a layer on top of the body. And we're still using the file liner brush. It's set to a 100% opacity and the size is at 9%. And let's follow to sketch and make its legs. Can just use the sketch as a guide nor make the front legs. So only these three like this. And a little antenna. One over here. One over here. Like this one a little bit thicker. I think this looks good. Let's make the other legs will have to make those on a layer underneath the body. So first glug layer two, then click the plus for a new layer. And they can make these pause or feed. Legs, not sure what they're called for a b. There. We can work a little bit on the depth of R B. I want to add some shadow to its body. Let's make a layer on top of layer three. Let's click the plus. Let's set it to clipping mask. We'll click the layer and select clipping mask. This means that whatever we paint a layer nine will only show up on what's on layer three. So that's only that body. And we'll set this layer to multiply, click the M, and scroll up until you are here at multiplied. That means that what are we paying on us? It will darken the layer underneath. So we are going to use this layer to add a shadow. Let's go to the soft brush. For the color. Let's pick this brownish color. We're going to make the brush a little bit bigger. It's at 12%. Let's go over the underside of the body here. Like that just a little bit. And we want the same thing, that front part of the body. So we'll have to make a layer set to multiply on top of that one as well. Click the plus, click the layer, set it to clipping mask, and then click the M, scroll up to multiply. Now let's go over this area and add a little bit of shadow there. And if at any point you feel like it's too much, you can always go to the Layer menu, click dot m, and lower the opacity to, let's say 50% m is same for this one. Next, I would like to add a highlight as well. So let's make a layer for a highlight first Glick layer nine, click the plus and set this layer to clipping mask as well. Now this layer will be clipped to that body part as well. I'll click the m and scroll down to screen. It's a bit like multiply, but this time, this layer will lighten up everything underneath it. For the color, we will go and use this third color here at the bottom and nice yellow. And let's go over the top and add a nice glow here. And we'll do the same for that other part. So let's again click the plus first go to layer ten, click the plus cuz clipping mask on this layer, and then click the M to scroll to screen. And then lighten up this area just a little bit. Now let's create the wings. I want the wing, all this front wing, I want it to be between that four of the body and this front part. So we'll have to make a layer between these areas. Let's click layer 11. Click the plus. And now we can create a wing there for our brush. Let's use the monoline brush effort, a color. We will pick this light blue color over here. And I'll just follow the sketch. And make a nice wing over here. Make sure you close the shape. And then drag in the color to fill it. For the other wing, we will create a layer below the body. So we'll go to layer eight. Click the plus. Now let's draw a wing over here. Make sure you close the shape behind a body and then drag in the color to fill it. Now I would like to add some details to these wings. Let's use the fine line or for that effort to colour, we will pick this darker blue is second color over here. And let's just follow its kitsch. And add some of these lines here. Just to add some interest to these wings. A little texture. Let's do the same for the other wing. Will go to layer 13 and draw directly on that when you don't have to follow it, it's catch exactly. Do come up with your own idea. And now let's lower the opacity of the wing. Because of course, away on this, an insect wing is a little bit transparent. So let's click the m and lower the opacity to, let's say 70%. Let's do the same thing for this wing will go to 70%. Now let's check what it looks like beneath our sketch. Without our sketch, here's our little b. 5. Flower Illustration: For the next step, let's create the flower. Let's turn to Sketch back on. Let me group all of these layers of the B. You can select them all by swiping to the right. And then click Group M. By clicking this little arrow, you enclose the group. Now let's go to layer to create a new layer. And let's get started on our flower. First, let me grab the monoline brush so we can create the stem for the color will pick this light green here at the bottom. And let's follow the sketch and create the stem over here, close to shape at the top. So you can drag in the color to fill it on a new layer, we will create a top of the flower. Let's click the plus and pick the third color over here, that yellow. And I'll, let's create an oval over here. You can hold your pen and place to make it snap to a quick shape. And of course you can go to Edit Shape. You're at the top and move these handles around to change the shape a little bit. I think this is looking good. Let's drag in the color to fill it. And that's, let's create the petals. I want each pedal to be on a separate layer. That way, during our animation, we can move them separately. Let's create a new layer between a stem and a top part. So first go to layer 16, click the plus, and then let's pick this light color over here. And we're still using a monoline brush. And let's just start with this one on the left. Like this close to shape. And drag in the color. And I wanna layer on top of this one, we will create the next pedal. So click the plus and the layer may you. And now let's follow this sketch, live. Close to shape and drag in the color. If you are having trouble seeing all of these pedals that you can of course switched to color. Let's make the other pedal underneath this one. Let's go to layer 18 first and click the plus. And let's just pick this darker color right now. So it's easier to see drag in the color. And for the final pedal, you want it to be behind this one. So we have to go to layer 18 again, click the plus, and I'll let's pick that light color again. And I followed a shape, close it, and dragging the color. Now let's turn down the opacity of the sketch later little bit CO2, sketch, click the N and turn it down even more to 4%. We can only slightly see it now and now I want to. Had a little bit of shadow and light to our petals. Let's get started with layer 18. Let's click it and use. Because then we can only paint on a pedal. Let's go to the soft brush. And let's grab that grayish color. And let's go over this bottom part, adding just a slight shadow there. And right here next to that top slide shadow. Let's do the same for the one next to it that's later 19 click alpha log. Notes go over that bottom part and having a slight shadow and here at the top. Now let's go to that third one. That's this one, and it's a bit dark. Let's lighten up again. Let's pick that light color and drag it on top of it. Because now of course we can see that edge. Click the layer journal alpha log, and we pick that gray color again. And what the soft brush, we'll go over that h. What would a bottom part? Adding a little bit of shadow here at the top. Now to the final one, that's layer 21. Click it terminal alpha alloc. And also add some slight shadow here. Next we'll add a little line on each petal. We will use the file liner brush for that, just like we did with the little wings. Let's graph both. We already have it. Let's use this color and let's just go over, let's go to layer 18 efforts. And let's make the brush a little bit bigger. Let's go for 20%. And let's add a little line. And we'll do that for each petal, GoTo later 1920. And then finally layer 21. I want to add some more shadow just underneath that top part. So let's create a new layer on top of the petals, but below that yellow area. Let's click the Plus when you're on layer 19. And footer brush, Let's use is a brunch for color. We will use this grayish color over here. The opacity of the brush is at a 100% and Fordist size, let's go to 20%. And let's just go over this area and darken that up a little bit. Let's make the pressure a little bit smaller, will go to 8%. Just go around an edge. And now of course we went outside of that edge a little bit here. We want to remove that. And to do that, we can use a selection. We can select an outer pedal, that's layer 21. Let's click it and pick select. Now we have a selection of that area and we will use invert. Now everything around it as selects it. If we go to the eraser, we have it set to monoline and not allow. We have the eraser active. We can go to that layer that we just created with that shadow layer 22 and go over that area to erase that because we have a selection active. You can only paint or erase or smudge inside of that selection. Now let's do the same thing for that part. Will have to go to the other pedal, that's layer 18, clicker. Use Select and again, use invert here at the bottom. Then make sure that you go back to layer 22. And with the eraser, you can clean that area up. Then click the S shape Raven again, you're out of the menu. And now we have a clean shadow there. Now I want to add some more texture to the other parts. Let's first turn off the sketch because we don't need it anymore. Let's add texture to the stem. That's layer 16. Let's click it and turn on alpha log so we won't be able to pain on side of the shape. Let's use this dark green color. We are still using the is-it crunch brush. And let's just dark on this top part. The stem to add a little bit of shadow. Now let's go to the yellow part. While we have layers 17 selected will use the fine liner brush. And we'll use that yellow that we also use for the base. I just want to add some texture to the top. So while we have the file liner brush, make these circular motions here at the top, adding some texture to that edge. We don't want it to be super smooth. So chill, so circular, wobbly. While we shapes. Giving it some texture. Max, we'll also use some texture brushes. Let's turn alpha walk offered us layer, click the layer, click alpha lock. And for the brush, Let's use tackle it and put a color. Let's use this orangey color. The opacity of the brush is set to 90% and the size is at 15%. And I'll just go over this part and adds a nice texture to it. Does making some circular motions, adding a texture. And then I'll go back to the yellow and Brides in this top part up again. We can even darken aside a little bit more by using the isn't grunge brush. Set that to that orange color as well. And then just go over that edge. Adding even more shadow. Just around the edge. I just want a little bit of a clear distinction between the petals. So let's go to each petal layer and we'll start with layer 18. Grab that dark re, still use. That is a grunge brush. And let's just go over that edge. Adding a slight little shadow will do that for each of the petals. So now let's go to layer 19. That's the one right next to it. Adding a little bit of shadow here. Then we'll go to layer 20. I'll just go over the edge. And then finally layer 21. And that'll We have created our illustration. We are almost ready to start animating. 6. Preparing You Illustration for Animation: We are almost ready to animate our B, but first we need to prepare our illustration. First thing we'll do is duplicate our entire canvas will go to the gallery by clicking gallery. That will slide to the left RB and click Duplicate. Now we have a duplicate Canvas. So in case anything goes wrong, if we merge layers that we vote, that we didn't want to merge, then we can always go back to our initial Canvas, since we'll be using a lot of layers in our animation, we want to reduce the initial layers that we have right here. So let's see what we can merge together. Let's first group the layers of the flower to make everything a bit more organized. So let's click group and let's go to B layer. Let's see what we can merge. Of course, we want to move the wing so d needs to be on a separate layer. We can merge that with any of the other layers. But we can merge these three. So let's squeeze them together. And these layers on top, we just need those wings to be separate. And of course, these legs, we can actually move them up and merge them with the body here. Now we have only four layers for RB. And to be sketched here at the top, we can delete that, just slide to the left and click delete. And I'll, let's give this group a name. Let's click New Group and select Rename, call this b. And let's duplicate this group because we want different, different types of bees. We want 1B, that is totally still, we won't be used at half their wings moving. So we'll duplicate this layer by sliding to the left. Click Duplicate. And now let's go to these wings and add a little motion blur to them. Will go to the magic wand and CO2 motion blur. And we'll apply it to the entire layer. And let's slide in this direction. Giving it a slight blur of, let's say, 15%, somewhere around 15%. It's really hard to get it exactly at 15. And let's do the same for the other wing, layer 14 here will go to the magic wand. Click motion blur applied to the layer. And now we will move like this. Again, go for something around 15% and click the magic wand. Now will go back to the layer. May you close that, that group? And let's duplicate this two times and will make three different moving bees. Let's rename this to moving one. We'll call this moving to and we'll call that moving three. Now let's go, let's turn these off and go to moving one. Ls. Move the wings just slightly. Let's first go to the layer 13 and go to the Move tool. And we can use this green handle to slightly rotate it and move it down just slightly like this. And I click the arrow again to get out of the menu. And let's do the same for layer 14. Click the Move tool. Now let's rotate it this way. And click the arrow again to get out of the menu. Now moving to dive will be in the same position as it was. So will go to moving three. And we'll turn off moving one. And here we will move the wings in a different direction. First layer 13 goes into Move tool. Let's move it this way, this time, like that. And then go to layer 14 and will move this one in this direction. Just make sure that the base of the wing is in the same position. And then click the arrow. Now we have three different types of moving bees. And now that we have our different type types of bees, we are ready to start animating RB. 7. Animating!: To start animating a, let's zoom out a little bit. Let's make it a little bit smaller so we can see the edges of our canvas. And let's go to the wrench, then to Canvas and then to animation assists how RB is gone. That's fine because it has selected background layer as our first frame here. So let's click that frame, that background frame, and let's set it to background. Now this will be our permanent background. It won't be in the animation, will, it'll be any animation, but it won't change. And our flour and RB are on different will indifferent groups. So those are different frames, so we need them to meet together, but we also need flowers for the moving bees. So let's duplicate this group and give a flower to each of the moving bees as well. And now we'll have to group each flower with each beat. That's one. Here we have the moving B. Let's call this moving again. So it's easier to find the crops that we need later. This is moving to and this will be moving three. And this one is our base. Now I will keep these four groups as a backup, and I'll keep duplicating these groups to add new frames to our animation. Of course, we'll start with moving bees. It'll come from here outside of the frame. The Beale come in, then land on the flower, and then continue flying to the right side of the frame. And I usually, for a smooth animation, animators shoes 24 frames per second, but 12 frames per second can give you pretty smooth animations as well. We will end up with a lot of layer. So, so if procreate starts telling you that you can't make any more new layers. You can always go to the wrench then to crop and resize and resize your canvas. That way, your iPad can handle more layers than when you have your canvas set to this size. So that's always an option. Not let's get started. Let me zoom out again. And let's turn these layers off. And let's start with moving one. Let me duplicate this layer. Put it at the top, and let's turn it on. Now the flower, nothing will happen to it. So we can actually merge flower on this layer. And we can also merge to be. And now let's move that B to almost outside of our frame. Let's go to the Move tool. And let's place it about here. It's just looking around the corner. Like that. And then we'll add moving to we can't even see the wings, but again, we can merge these layers. And I will go to layer 14 and moved as B. That it slightly, so that it has slightly moves. And then we'll duplicate moving three here. Put that on top. And then again, I'll move that B has slightly shifted. And you know, actually forties base of b's. We can merge all these bees because nothing is going to happen with them. We will just be working on a flower later. So let's just merge these bees. That'll save us some layers. So now that we have moving three will add another moving to the top. Let's turn it on and let's pick that up. Let's merge D is again just to save layers at a slight shift. And then we'll go back to moving one. So it will go from one to three to one, and then back again. Flowers. And here at the settings, you can actually change onion skin frames. If you wanted to see Les bees. You can change that there. Let's go for two. And let's set the frames per second at 12. Now let's continue. We have moving one, it was 12321, and then we'll go back to two. Let's duplicate this. Turn it on. Let's move that B by clicking the Move tool. And then we'll go back to moving three. Let's duplicate that. We'll click the Move tool. Will go back to moving two again. And we'll continue doing this until our B is just above our flower. And now that the bee has its entire body inside of the canvas, you could actually just duplicate the layers here. So we can duplicate this moving too, because its entire body, it's already inside the canvas. And let's just see what our animation looks like so far. Flowing pretty good. Let's continue. Only a moving three again. A moving to B is almost all the flour. Well, let's make the next frame. The frame where the bee lands on the flower. So it allows, its, its waves will stop moving. So we will need our still be our base b, which is here. Let's just move it all the way to the top like that. And we will need a couple of them. So let's just duplicate it. And I see that I have reached my maximum amount of layers, but we can easily fix that actually because all these frames are ready. So we can actually do is merge these and turn them into single layers. You can actually go all the way to the top emerge all of the groups. That way we save space and we can start using more layers. And now let's try again. Let's duplicate this layer. We have enough space now. And of course, if you are having issues with the amount of layers, your animation, you can also just go for a faster animation, use less frames. But then you'll have to turn down the frames per second so that your B will move slower. And let's turn this one off. And we'll have to move our B in the right position where it's landing on a flower. And as it lands on a flower, I want the flower to move a little bit. I want the entire flower to move down a little bit. But at least the top part, not the stamp. So we'll select the petals and at top part, go to the move to gently move it down a little bit. And then I would like to panels to go up a little bit. So first let's turn off alpha log on these layers. Click the layers. Turn off alpha law. And I'll start with layer 18. Let's go to the Move tool and select warp. Warp is layer just a little bit and make these petals go up slightly. I'll do the same for the one next to it. That's layer 19. Champing, make it go up. Now let's go to layer 20. Give that a gentle nudge as well. And then layer 21, like that. Let's see what that looks like. You see that the flower gets a gentle little notch. We can actually nudge it even more. We can duplicate this layer that we just create it. And go to that flower group again, let's nudge it either more. Go to layer 18 first and move it up a little bit more than two-layer 1912 that up as well. Then layer 2021, like that. And then we can duplicate this first one again. Because of course first the pedals go up and then they'll go down again. So on this one, on top again. Let's check. Yes, that's looking nice. All right, so here in this first one, the pedal, the flowers going down to petals are going up, here to petals are going up even more. And here they are going back. And then we need our, our first frame, our first, well, the initial flour, we need that again. So let's just use this one. Put down on top. So here to flower is back to normal. We just need R B and a right position. Let's go and click uniform. Put the B on top again. Like this, let's check our animation. I'm actually thinking that I wanted to flower to be in the same position here as the layer below so that it's still a bit lower, but the paddles are, are still the same. So let's select these petals and a top part. And let's move it down on top of the other so that it's the same. You can really, you can see those onions came frames and that way you can place it on top of it. Like that. Let's just check the animation, see if it's working. And then as the B will start flying again, the flower will go back up. So let's start doing that now. And we are done with all of these bees, with the base bees, because R b will start flying off again. So let's just, let's just merged these layers so that we have enough space, enough room for layers to create the final frames will have to get back to moving 123. Now let's just, let's select them and move them to the top. So we don't have to go down every time. Let's place them there. And we'll start off with moving one will replicate it first. Let's turn it on. Then click layer 14. Militias merge deeds first. Then go to the Move tool and check where to previous b was and just place it a little bit higher. And now we can actually merge the layers. And we'll go to moving to turn and grab the B. Make it go up a little bit and won't get moving. Three, grabbed me and make it go up slightly again. And we'll get back to moving to. And you can check that animation in the meantime to see if it's working. I think it is. So let's just continue. A can merge these groups as you go. Just make sure that you always have her backup layers. So I'll go back to movie one and keep going until your b is entirely out of the frame. Now we have all our frames. Let's check our animation. I think we can actually make that be pause a little bit longer on that flower. So we could duplicate this frame right here. And just click the frame and select Duplicate. And now that b should rest a little bit longer on the flower. And you could go for even longer. And if you want a little pause at the end of the animation where the B won't be in a frame. Then what you need to do is to duplicate some of those flowers, because of course a flower will be in a frame them. So let's just grab these. And we can delete this one. Let's grab these flowers. The layers, move them outside of this group. And now we have three frames with flowers. So that's a little pause at the end of your animation. And then the baby comes back in again. 8. Closing Words: And there you have your little b animation that if you want to export your animation, you can go to the wrench than to share. And you can share animation as an animated mp4, for instance, just keep it at 12 frames per second. Or perhaps you have used less frames and you'll have another number there, but you can just export it and post it on Instagram, for instance. Deal, be sure to share your work.
