ANIMATION: Crying


#1

I know we have two cry animations, but they’re not very good. In INK and classic, the cries are dramatic and obvious, but the Limelight animations for male and female aren’t. They hardly move, they just hold their face and look sad, They really don’t look like they’re sobbing.


#2

I totally agree! In a specific scene, I attempted to make everyone cry differently, but they seemed to be the exact same crying animations. I can barely tell the difference between the two. Sobbing is more emotional, and heavier than sniffling.


#3

In INK, the crying animation looks so sad, their shoulders move and their mouth is moving and they wipe their face! In classic, they hold their face and sob dramatically! In Limelight, they hold their face


#4

In my opinion, crying doesn’t need to be too dramatic, and they don’t need to necessarily hold their face (I don’t do that) so I’m not exactly a fan of crying animations (no matter limelight or ink)

it would be cool if they could cry actual tears too. i saw it in one story as an overlay and it was dope
