Drawing Part 2, Bouncing a ball

Everybody who learns the basics of animation learns about how to animate a bouncing ball. So that is what we will learn today.

All the while you want to be aware that the ball changes shape as it hits the ground, then accelerates upward. You can follow along on the tips of the bouncing ball sequence in these 2 links:
