EDIT: A few nice people gave some suggestions on how to fix the fall. It looks a bit better now.

Alternate title: How Ice Princess Rea lost her tiara.

At my last skating lesson, I was using brand new skates, and while I was doing crossovers, y toe pick caught the ice and I took a magnificent fall, that I tried to emulate here.
Three coaches were immediately helping me up to make sure I was okay.

One asked if I needed an ice pack.
I told her I think I got enough ice.

 

I don't like how the fall animation turned out but I didn't know how to fix it.

Animated this while watching Grave Encounters with Wyeth and Kitten.

Wow, I never knew you ice-skated! X3 My brother does as well.

The fall looks pretty good, but I think because of the fact it's ice there might have been just a little more sliding. Then it would look less like faceplanting on the ground and more like slipping on the ice.

I'm no expert though >w> amazing animation! :heart:

It's still ice though, so wouldn't there still be a slide?

Egh, doesn't matter it still looks awesome.

I was doing side toe hops in last year and then i slipped on the back of my blade and fell on my tail bone owie it hurt for at least a week.
that is why i always hated using my toe pick especially for ballet jumps

I remember watching a show when I was really little. I think it was some cheesy Ghost Adventures kind of show where they jumped and screamed at nothing. 
How was the movie, by the way?
