Khiara Expression 2

"A Thousand Faces" is a practice series on bringing emotion and expression to fixed characters while studying morphologie without losing the characters facial traits.
I went very very subtle on the expression as I was still very unconfident about pushing it already. Getting the same face in a different angle was a first step.

Character: Khiara
Expression: Shy
Time: 2 hour

That's so cute!
... But when does she ever look like that and MEAN it?

It's all part of looking innocent before a fatal strike.
'Insidious' should be her middle name...

Another great expression :love: I should say it's a difficult challenge, because differences are often very subtle and they shouldn't be too exaggerated like in cartoons (Disney movies for example).

Still, even for cartoony characters it's tricky to keep characters consistent through out a complete film, this is something I've experienced during my education. Respect for all those classic 2D animators out there!

Oops, I'm sorry, I didn't meant that :( I meant that for each different styles I think you can't draw the same expressions because details are not the same.

And I love 2D animation too and I have respect for all animators (they do an amazing work) :love:

I think so far it looks great ! The expression is subtle, yes; but I always felt like subtle expressions tended to have a better render than "too much expressive" expressions. And Khiara is really pretty, love her nose ^^
