Apologies if this is in the wrong category, still getting used to the new forums!
I recently got back into Episode and realised that the Limelight style has now fully bloomed and available - but I still hate it.
I hated it when Episode announced they were working on it because the art style doesn’t look… normal. No hate to the people who do like the style though - it’s just I won’t read stories who have that style unless it’s a really good story.
However, when INK came out I also hated it. Aha, I was still attached to the classic style which honestly I don’t really like as much anymore but the hairs were really decent. But anyway, I was hoping to come across your thoughts on the whole art style? Like INK was only out for what, a year or two before they announced Limelight? It’s like they’re just throwing it away already!
To be honest, I think the main thing that really bothers me about Limelight is how slow some of the animations are and I really dislike the look of the clothing and the way it’s been shaded to look more realistic. The eyes are also too small - I tried creating a male character but it ended up looking like Freddie from iCarly!
Do you think INK will die out eventually? I think some of the greatest stories come from the INK and Classic styles so I hope Episode won’t forget about them…
Once again, I’ve been living under a rock for a while and there’s probably been a ton of these threads but I just wanted your opinion on Limelight - and the direction Episode is going in general.
