Expressions

While we are working on character sketches I thought I would make a note about this reference. In his book MAKING COMICS Scott McCloud has a wonderful section about expressions. He talks about the muscles of the face and how they create expressions, and then he has a reference page of expressions and combinations of expressions. Because he does comics each of these expressions is created with the simplest number of lines and has been very helpful to me in terms of figuring out how to create an expression quickly.

Love your watercolours Monica! Ican´t make them that warm and plastic. They are reallly delicious.
