Step 2: Rough Illustration

I chose to start in Illustrator as I'm much more familiar and comfortable with it at this point. It took some work to figure out what to illustrate exactly to keep it simple, but I'm fairly happy with the progress at this point. It's simple, but I wanted to focus on a few elements first. Then, I could always add more detailed animations afterwords.

Step 3: Build and Animate
I finished up my project and actually just exported it out as a .gif. There are some things I could have done differently and set up differently, but was a great learning experience. Had a lot of fun. Hope you enjoy it too!
