Tips for Making Animations with Procreate

Procreate is a fun drawing app for the iPad that allows you to make simple animations. 

Animation can be accessed by toggling on the switch for "Animation Assist."

The interface is pretty easy to learn. 

Open a new canvas and create the art that you want to animate.  Start simple!

Add a background beneath the art layer. 

Turn on Animation Assist and duplicate your first layer. 

Select the art layer and move it slightly.

Repeat those steps until you have a finished animation. As you duplicate the art and move it, you will need to add to it.  (I had to add more string to my balloon.)
