Making Faces: Drawing Expressions For Comics And Cartoons 8fish

Product Overview

Format: Paperback

Chances are, you already know how to draw some expressions. But face it, your
stories can only get so far with "happy," "sad" and "angry." In order to give
your characters some character, you need to know what they look like when
they're about to sneeze, when they smell something stinky or when they're
flirting, horrified or completely blotto. Lucky for you, that's what this book
is all about! Making Faces contains everything you need to give your
characters a wide range of expressions! Part 1: The Basics. How to draw heads,
mouths, noses and eyes, and how they change shape when they move. Part 2: The
Faces. Over 50 step-by-step demonstrations for a variety of expressions
divided into scenarios. Each scenario shows four or five expressions from a
single character, from simple emotions to more subtle and complex variations,
so you see how a face changes with each emotion. Sidebars illustrate the same
expressions on a variety of other characters. Part 3: Storytelling.How to move
your story along using expression, point of view, body language and
composition. See how it all comes together with damsels in distress, a noir-
style interrogation, a Western standoff and other situations. Illustrated with
a diverse cast of characters from hobos to superheroes to teenage girls, this
guide will help you create the looks that say it all.
