I started out with a rough sketch of what I wanted to create. I love the interaction of people and nature, so I wanted to showcase that relationship

Animation - Trial:
I drew the frames of the flower blooming, but I loved how the leaf felt like it was growing and then wilting. Wouldn't it be fun it the GIF depicted the whole cycle of growing and decaying?

Final Animation:
So. Many. Frames. But so much fun!
