How to create Drawing Effect Animation using CSS ?

  • Last Updated : 02 Jul, 2021
Geek Week

Drawing effect animation can be implemented using CSS animation. The used images can be modified or edited as per requirement. Save the images in SVG file format. The animation is created by drawing a simple art using lines and curved lines.

The CSS stroke-dashoffset property defines the location along an SVG path where the dash of a stroke will begin.

The stroke-dasharray is used for creating dashes in the stroke of SVG Shapes. The animation completes one cycle in 5 seconds. The linear function specifies an animation with the same speed from start to end. The forwards option specifies that the element will retain the style values that are set by the last keyframe. The @keyframes rule specifies the animation code.
