I have decided through extensive research, hours of experimentations, and tears, that pokerchips are THE DEVIL INCARNATE, and look like crap no matter HOW FSCKING LONG you spend trying to make them look like what they are. So yes, those candysticks are in reality, pokerchip stacks D:
Other than that, I think everything came out ok :] This was a commission from =SullMaster
, who wanted an emote playing poker. He gave a very description of the animation (so all creds go to him), and I've followed it to the best of my abilities. He wanted the emote to have sunglasses (and a hat, but I left that out because it got too crowded), and they're resting on his forehead the entire animation A) he's indoors, I suspect, B) having them on would coverup the facial expressions, C) He looks way more badass with them like that.
An interesting note is that this is the first emote I've done where the visible emote is interacting with others (The dealer, other players, etc) without them being shown at all. This was a fun emote to do, really, after I got decided to deal with the pokerchips looking less than as nice as I'd have liked.
Because I think it's funny that ESPN counts poker as a sport, I'm making this represent the sport theme in the 100 themes challenge
Number 051 of the 100 themes challenge
(not doing them in order)
