25 Essential Expressions 01 by fire-tisane 25 Essential Expressions 01 by fire-tisane
.:Edit:. Updated the looks on Disgusted and Pouty. Looks much much better IMO. What do y'all think?

Download to see it even bigger if you want to.

Phew! This one was a killer. 25 Essential expressions of my character Shadow. This was a great practice and I'm hopefully planning to do a few more to practice my characters unique features. She's usually Happy so it was interesting to show her being sad and angry and whatnot. I hope I did well enough with her. I might update this later on with more colors. So anyway, enjoy.

Original Meme by :iconnapalmnacey: [link] and found from :iconendling:'s stuff. Enjoy dudes and dudettes! Also, I challenge one and all to do this. If you do, make sure you send me a link. I'd love to see it since it's such awesome-sauce.

I wanted to play with that more where panels overlap or interact. Maybe the next time I try something like this I'll do that.

Cool! Check out mine! [link]
I had the same problem as you did,Clara is just so crazy happy almost 24/7,so doing the other emotions were a bit challenging...
I'm doing this same thing with her brother, Clarence, now THAT is gonna be hard! He's barely ever emotional...he's so stoic!

haha nice!
That seems like the archetype balance between characters where you have one that's an extrovert while the other is more of an introvert. I have the same setup with my characters where Janus (dude) is quiet and serious most all the time, except when Shadow's around. Then he's more prone to show a touch of emotion just because she's so excited and happy. It rubs off, what can he say?
I'm doing one of these for Shadow's sister, Shade. After that I'll do one of another character called Sightless. Now HE'LL be fun. He always wears a mask that covers his full face. So all his emotion will have to be done with body language.

hahahah Thank you! I enjoyed doing silly very much. After all, it's right next to serious ( I think ) and it ended up her looking at silly and silly looking back at her, hahaha. And for the longest time I've had issues drawing hands. But I swear up and down, if you make an effort to draw them and use picture refrencese, it'll become soooooo much easier! I've noticed this in the past few months with my comic.

Haha, I'm doing this 'meme' too and with me, the different expressions tend to look at each other as well. It can be really funny ^^
I know, I use a lot of references too. I suppose I'm a just bit lazy =P

Oh cool! You'll have to let me know when you finish it so I can see. I personally like it when they break panels and interact with each other. I'm not sure if you know Kamicheeta but she did one with all the characters interacting with eachother and did a fantastic job with it.
hehehe, you 'n me both brother. Sometimes I get bit by the lazy bug and I just don't want to do anything.

I think I saw Kami's one. The anthro-girl with the large ears, right? She did a great job, indeed.
Actually, I'm working on the fourth sheet already =P I haven't cleaned & scanned them just yet... But I'll send you a link once I've posted them, if you want ^^

Yes, the anthro girl! I liked the two of 'em playing chess.

Yes, please do send me a link. I'd like to see other peoples take on each expression.

That one was funny, yes :XD:
What I also liked was that she used the whole body to express emotions. I only do heads and hands, but body language is a great part of emotions, too.
Sure ^^

Yes, body motion is can fully express emotion. I have a character who wears a mask and was thinking of making another one of these with him and see if I can get all the right expressions to show with his hands, head and shoulders.

Wow, it's done! It must have taken a lot of work to do this! :O I'm honestly amazed.

What is "bereft"? Does it involve barf? O-O;;; *hides behind plastic curtain just in case*

Some of the facial expressions make me laugh--especially rage :giggle:

I wants to color this >w> Maybe when I'm sitting at home this summer on my jobless bum I might :lol:

fire-tisane Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh yes, lots more than you'd think. Figuring out how she'd look in each was a chore. I srsly have to fix her neck in disgusted. gah!

You don't know Bereft? That means like if you just lost someone. You'd be bereft with sadness or guilt. I guess it could make you feel like throwing up.

: O Rage made you laugh? But she's totally cerial in that one! : O She'll eat your face.

oooooo, it would be neat to see that! =D I can send you all the lines by themselves if you'd like. I'm still going to color a few here and there and fix it up but yeah. I doubt I'd do the whole thing.

Ohhh. That bereft! I always imagined it was spelled "bereved" idk why :confused:

On no's! Not my face! :gasp:

:iconfire-tisane:
fire-tisane Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Naaaw, I'll have to fix it one of these days.

Bereved would be like past tense. Bereft would be current... I think...

= O Yes your face! You better watch out!!!

I redid the rage one once or twice before I settled on this version. haha, I like it. Sets off the right tone with her I think.

Oh dude! You seriously should. Take your time but it would be awesome if you did do one of these. I'm thinking of doing another of a dude who wears a mask, hahaha. That one will be interesting to pull off.
