Express Yourself by Pelboy Express Yourself by Pelboy
Sorry it's been so long without an upload ^^ There's another one on it's way also so that should make up for it :3 I was doodling faces and then thought that it would be cool if I made a sort of tutorial of how I draw emotions and expressions. I tried to fit as many as I could in, but if you want to see an emotion that isn't here then feel free to leave it in the comments and I'll stick it on the next one ^^.

I think people focus far to much on the details with cartoon art, and often forget to give the character a personality, which is very important!! Anyways I hope you like, or better yet I hope it helps :) created on photoshop.

Wow, this is so awesome. I'm working on my anatomy, and facial expressions, so I thought I'd take a look at your drawings again. (Obviously, Mr expression king) This is just so amazingly awesome. :3

I've only really taken an interest to it since janurary this year. I enjoyed to draw before that, but since I decided I would like a career in animation I've been tryin to hit it hard :)

WAIT a sec, you got that good, THAT FAST? *dies* I've been drawing for years, but it only really picked up in septermber of '09, before that, it was all... un-professional. (and it still kind of is... I still suck, don't I?) I'm so jealous ;P

ahhhhh, that is really good. i am amazed at how fast you have learned, but the power of the will brings out the best in all... great going and good luck.
heck, i've been drawing but not so intensly. just here and there and when i don't like what i draw i quit for months and then come back to it. i just have to do more figure drawings and find my comfort zone with it.

so true, so true... i know what my problem is when i try to draw manga's. i tense up that i can hardly draw a broken line. i just have to feel relaxed like when i draw my flowers or animals. but its like i want to do it soooooo freak'n bad and don't want to mess it up. then that's when all goes down hill...

hey, is it alright i put you on my dawatch list? i don't want to miss anything you do. :)

not at all ^^ I'll add you also :) I know what you mean about tensing up, especially whn drawn circles. The best thing to do is not think about it at all, and just let then pencil swing across the paper. When you sketch cureves just sketch lots of little lines into the curve rather than doing one continuous line. It makes it easier :) which is why I do it lol ^^
