I'm sort of under duress atm and didn't look it up... so if you have some helpful facial anatomy or other face expression tutorials you think I should link here, comment!

An amazing explanation of how faces and expressions work

So expressive, these faces. >u<
The enraged face reminded me of one of Disney's Big Hero 6's Hiro's expressions on the model sheet, so much to the point of allusion. 8D This just proves that you have mastered the art of drawing expressions!

Hm, with this tutorial aimed at more or less experienced artists, I'm not sure if this'll help a lot, but there's no telling until I try!
FINALLY, A GUIDE SO I CAN GET RID OF DULL SURPRISE ON MY ARTWORK!! :iconsobbplz:
