this is great, Dan. And my favorite meme I've seen on DA, hands down. Tired is my fav, reminds me of my little one, such a cute face. "Daddy, I'm not tired... 5 more.... minut..e..s.... zzzzzzzzzzzzzz"

This is really cool, I love a lot of the expressions, if you don't mind some feedback...

Confused looks more like puzzled or something... when I think of confused, I think it has a bit more worry in it.

Sarcastic looks more like indifferent or something... I think sarcastic has a bit more smirk to it.

Flirty looks more like playful or something... I think flirty needs a bit more flirt in it LOL.

Yeah overall pretty awesome!

I really like that you didn't just draw a head, but included the shoulders, hands, arms. It really brings another level to the pictures. Well done.

That looks WAY funner than studying for a psychology exam. o_________o

I think my favorite out of yours are WTF and irritated. I can kinda see her do something like tap her foot as she's twirling her hair.
DanHowardArt's avatar
but i like psychology D=

Oh, the class is good. But drawing > behavioristic paradigm study. XD;

haha, these are great! I've been working on environments so much the past several years that I'm not sure I could pull this off. Props!

FantasyPunkPrincess's avatar
Thats really cool! and good too. Though I would have thought "triumph" would have been happier...
DanHowardArt's avatar

FantasyPunkPrincess's avatar

Angelonight's avatar
I need to get at it and do this one.
Very cool.
Great array of emotions.
kasai's avatar
So much character here dude! This is quite beastly. Hope I can find some time to try this out too.
Butch007's avatar
Wow, really exceptional job at maintaining all of the landmarks of the character face through all of the expressions, most of the time this is where so many artists seem to crash and burn.
Orkimaru's avatar

I've found this very educative and good to look at. This'll help me in portrets and developing a sence for expressions.
