“the first thing they tell you when you take the job is never to fall in love with an inmate”

Plotbunny that won’t stop chasing me:

Barry is undercover in Iron Hights. (As himself because the police think he’ll be able to get information because of his father. Cover story is he was using his job to cover up crimes he comitted. Barry agrees to do it because his dad will be able to get parole (earlier) if he helps.)

Shortly after his arrival, Captain Cold also arrives in Iron Hights. Causing quite a stir, a) because he got caught, which hasn’t happend in ages, and b) because he doesn’t break out two days later, like he usually does and c) this has led him to be quite the celebrity in there. And he doesn’t break out because he is there to get intel on some mafia guy, very important business, he couldn’t get the same info anywhere else, absolutely no way. It’s not to keep an eye on that idiot speester who has no idea what he got himself into, the prison is full of dangerous people and he is not only risking his life but his secret identity and what is he thinking?! Also, is that guy staring at scarlet?? Better go scare him off.

↳ Prison Break

When I was young, I couldn’t sleep at night because I thought there was a monster in the closet. But my brother told me there wasn’t anything in the closet but fear, and fear wasn’t real. He said it wasn’t made of anything, it was just air. not even that. He said you just have to face it. You just have to open that door, and the monster would disappear. In here though, you face your fear. You open that door, and there’s a hundred more doors behind it. And the monsters that are hiding behind them are all real.

I really love that lip sync for your side project. I'm trying to learn animation and I was just wondering in toonboom...how you made her chin moving up and down look so smooth? Did you redraw the line going up and down for the "O" and "A" mouths or use a tween? I've tried to do this but it does not look as smooth and squishy like yours. Maybe I have weird layers or not enough practice! Just wondering! Any tips would be extremely helpful :')

Thanks Katie!  For the really big mouth shapes, I redrew the chins to get that smooth movement.  Although I’m sure you can get good results out of tweening, I’ve found one or two well placed drawings does the trick.

So in that lip sync post you saw, I gave “Doris” a full set of the standard mouth shapes, but then I added a couple extra mouths to give some life to the bigger movements.  And to give the illusion that I am a capable animator.  For example, for a big AH mouth:

It’s basically three mouths.  The closed mouth, then a really wide AH mouth, which settles into a slightly smaller AH mouth.  

That really wide mouth is called an ‘accent.’  It gives her mouth movement some punch and makes it feel like her face is really stretching.  Like her expression is SO BIG that she stretches her face as far as it can go, and then it snaps back into place.  Here’s an overlayed version so you can see the difference between the two mouths.

In the GIF above, I did the same trick with her eyes.  She squints in anticipation, then her eyes get really wide, and then they settle.

I hope that helps with your lip syncing woes.  Feel free to ask me anymore questions about it.
