HOW TO: Place Character(s) in Bed (Top View) 😴 🛌

Hello everyone :wave: Today, I’m going to share some example codes (in the style limelight, however you can also apply it for the ink style as well, just change animation names and play a little bit around with spot directing) that have to do with placing character(s) in bed, from the top view of the bed. So not sleeping sideways, but sleeping, straight up. like a vampire :vampire: First, I share codes that don’t take tablet use into consideration and then I share codes that do (it was coded pretty fast haha but I hope it’s simple) :heart:
What you should understand: spot directing, overlays and layers. Zooms as well, in addition to the @ and & commands :blue_heart:

Anyways, without further ado, here they are:

#Let’s see “sleeping in a bed from the top view” scenes in action.

Tablet use:

And once I become prime minister, one of my first rules will be to throw people who litter in jail.
A fine isn’t good enough, but jail time is.
Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.
Am I right?

&MOONLIGHT is listen_nod_neutral_loop

STARLIGHT (talk_agree_happy)
I agree…

STARLIGHT (talk_awkward_loop)
But I think community service where they’re forced to clean up after animals would be even better.

&MOONLIGHT is talk_exclaim_yes_happy

STARLIGHT (talk_apathetic)
After all, why waste tax payers money on keeping litterbugs locked up when you can force them to do labour?
