This is a fanart
This is a fanart of the indie action game Owlboy store.steampowered.com/app/115….

Owlboy does most of its cut scenes in-engine, which means the characters have full body expressions going on in the conversation. The protagonist Otus is a mute, and thus all his feelings must be conveyed through facial and body gestures. I was quite impressed by that and used him as the base to study different expressions. All the expressions shown here is the scale up version of his in-game version, with design tweaks of my Oasis style.

This is the 1st picture of the expression set. The second one can be viewed here:

I love Otus! One of my favourite indie characters, i can relate to him somewhat. Always trying to proof himself
