Repeated, even timing quick turns into obvious and unnatural; to make results animation extra dynamic, we have to overlap the timing of our parts and the instructions of total circulation in addition. decreasing the quantity of element significantly, we get to a drawing that's really workable to animate. inspite of eighty% of the element passed over, it's nonetheless particularly demanding to animate!
