Making Faces : Drawing Expressions for Comics and Cartoons Paperback



This book shows readers fun, easy and effective techniques for all aspects of creating expressive faces and emotions for comics and cartoons.It covers the basic ingredients of an expression, including the eyes, nose, mouth and lips to different head shapes and angles with a final chapter covering storytelling techniques involving scenes with multiple characters interacting.Due to its large number of demonstrations, readers will enjoy a larger page count and more content than most other "IMPACT" books.

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! 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.
