HOW TO: Face Expressions Reference

And these are few crazy face expressions which I did for practice after midnight. Ash was my test bunny again XD It’s a bit more sketchy than my usual work, but hopefully you’ll still find it useful...or that it'll cheer you up a bit at least haha. My other tutorials and references you can find below. :la:

It's not done super realistically and I like to make expressions slightly exaggerated since I find it better to portray emotions and it makes character more alive. As for illustrations and comics, expressions can make artwork more interesting and it can add a story to it or you can make your story more powerful by portraying these emotions as strong as possible. You can observe facial movements for different expressions... I mostly keep an eye of eyebrows, eyes (eyelids, pupils), mouth and posture. :D

Valentina-Remenar's avatar
LOL he wasn't inspired by that character. People can think that cuz of hair probably... but I just went with the typical 90's hairstyle XD

I don't usually believe in these things, but I don't want to tempt fate

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room

I said "fuck it" and decided to see the little girl in my room.
Then I removed her ass from existence.
You're welcome. :)
