This.It took me quite a while to finish it up as my manual attempts to tell After Effects what to do next resulted in messing up the curves as well as the scale of the shape. After some additional tweaking and helpful feedback I settled on this attempt. One more letter to go.
Here I thought about an elephant trunk as the curve of “S” was shooting out forward. I cannot watch too many videos of those baby elephants from the DSWT on Instagram. 🙂
