Objectives: What is extremely important for your learning objectives for this assignment is to animate to make it appear that the skeleton is actually climbing into the tub to take a bath. Do not allow the skeleton's bones to go all over the place. You goal is to make it look like the skeleton is actually climbing into the bath tub and bathing. Also, you will learn about and use <Layers> and the <Outline Box>.

You will need, at least, fifty <Keyframes> but you can use as many as you need. Note the bathtub image is placed into the animation for the entire length of <Timeline>

Tools to use: <Selection> and <Free Transform> Also, you will be using the <Lock> and <Outline> tools on the layers menu.
