facial expressions…

...and lime green spandex at that!

Since I’ve been thinking more about the difficulty of creating expressive faces, I decided to try using a book which is designed to assist artists with this challenge. This book, called Facial Expressions by Mark Simon, is more or less a catalogue of a large range of different people with all kinds of expressions on their faces. The biggest help to me is that it shows the same person with a variety of… grimaces to grins and anything else you can think of. Here’s my first attempt. Feel free to suggest a caption for the picture! – the one above was inspired by Tom in the comments.
