25 Essential Expressions by napalmnacey 25 Essential Expressions by napalmnacey
This is a challenge and an exercise that I find incredibly helpful when hashing out a new character. It's good to have nearby when doing your panels and you're thinking, "Damn, what does So-and-so's nose do in this expression?" Or maybe your drawing isn't consistent and you want to keep a certain look? Catalogue them on this sheet first and keep it nearby for easy reference!

I'd be more than happy to see filled out sheets in other people's devs! Let me know if you do post it cause I'd like to see it!

EDIT: Fixed typo, took away 'surprised' and replaced it with 'tired', then added 'surprised' to 'shocked'. I want to thank the forum folk at girl-wonder.org for the suggested changes!

EDIT the 2nd: WOW. This thing has taken off! I will read all your comments eventually, it'll just take me some time!

The Tutorial that this exercise sheet goes with. Enjoy!

Thanks so much for making this :) !! it has been very helpful :hug: . Even though I didn't completely follow it and I did put the expressions on my own sheet. I still used your meme for about 85 % of the expressions.

You take a look here, --> fav.me/d8jqgmq if you please.

This is a great template, it's encouraged me to re-do some expressions for one of my characters at some point so thank you! I'll add this to my favourites and keep it on me as reference. :)

This was incredibly helpful with establishing some sort of facial continuity.  I struggle with this, and I feel like I won't struggle as much in the future now having completed this (:
