Sleepy Cloud Animation With CSS

Hey everyone. Welcome to today’s tutorial. In today’s tutorial, we will learn how to create a sleepy cloud animation. To create this animation we need HTML and CSS. We won’t be using any images or external libraries to create this animation.

This is a fun tutorial that will help you explore and experiment with new CSS properties. So I would recommend beginners to go ahead and give this tutorial a try.

If you would like more tutorials to improve your CSS skills you can check this playlist here. This playlist consists of a bunch of CSS animation tutorials.

Video Tutorial:

If you are interested to learn by watching a video tutorial rather than reading this blog post you can check out this video down below. Also subscribe to my youtube channel where I post new tips, tricks and tutorials every alternate day.

Project Folder Structure:

Before we start coding let us create the project folder structure. We create a project folder called – ‘Sleepy Cloud Animation’. Inside this folder, we have two files – index.html and style.css.The first file is the HTML document while the second file is the stylesheet.

HTML:

The HTML code creates the elements required for the structure of our illustration. First, copy the code below and paste it into your HTML document.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <title>Sleepy Cloud Animation</title>
    <!-- Stylesheet -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
  </head>
  <body>
    <div class="container">
      <div class="moon"></div>
      <div class="cloud">
        <div class="blush"></div>
        <div class="eye-l"></div>
        <div class="eye-r"></div>
        <div class="mouth"></div>
      </div>
      <div class="star star-1"></div>
      <div class="star star-2"></div>
      <div class="star star-3"></div>
      <div class="star star-4"></div>
      <div class="star star-5"></div>
      <div class="star star-6"></div>
    </div>
  </body>
</html>

CSS:

Next, we shape and style these elements using CSS. Also, we use CSS to animate these shapes. Next copy the code provided to you below and paste it into your stylesheet.
