Thank you! Facial expressions is one of the things I really want to improve on most. ^w^

Yeah, they can be hard to get right but they have a huge impact on the character's emotions. :)

My thoughts exactly! Looking at fellow artists with similar drawing ability to my own, I found that one thing that always hindered some works overall was the generic smile/frown. Sometime after I started to post my own art here in 2011/2012, I noticed that my facial expressions were very generic smile/frowns with not much to show genuine emotion. So from early 2013 onwards, I made it a focus to improve expressions to both better convey emotions. It's one of the biggest reasons I keep doing the "Draw This Again" meme.

Yeah, poses will add the dynamic edge to your drawings as well. Once you master both Poses + facial expressions, you'll definitely stand out on here!

Thanks! ^w^ I hope to also make drawings more often than I do now. Perhaps once a month or more~

You're welcome! You should! Try even doing a bunch of doodles each day, it'll really boost your skills further!
