I've been following this Skillshare class by Shaun Walsh, trying cut-out style illustration and animation. In short, it's technically fiddly, but also a lot of fun too. Shaun is also quite open to questions and technical issues, of which I was having quite a few, but he helped me figure it out in the end which I definitely appreciated. The whole sequence took about 5 hours to do, not including the drawing!
I'd like to attempt more in this style at some point.
