25 Essential Expressions– Verity


25 Essential Expressions– Verity by ~the-gneech on deviantART

One of the things I always regretted about my previous comics was that I never really put a lot of the professional-level homework into them, not the least of which is an expressions sheet. So for my current one, I decided to remedy this. I grabbed this template for the task: http://napalmnacey.deviantart.com/art/25-Essential-Expressions-55523083

Holy cats, this is a lot more work than it looks like. But on the upside, I now have a proper expressions reference for Verity. The hardest one to settle on was actually “flirty,” as Verity is not exactly a seething cauldron of self-assurance and social adeptitude. (Is that a word?) So I went with “giggly and embarrassed” instead, which is pretty much how she’d react to anybody she really found attractive. “Fierce” and “rage” were tough choices as well, considering how neither of those things Verity tends to be.

I’ll need to do one of these for Tanya too, but I have some time before that since she doesn’t actually appear until about 5 pages into the comic.

I think you do "sarcastic", "confused", "triumph" and "pleased" better than damn near 99% of artists out there. Especially "confused". :)

cheers,

Thanks! :D "Confused" is my natural state! ;)

Actually, I tweeted about that the other day.

"No matter how much my art style evolves, this will always be one of my go-to expressions. … Thank you, Chuck Jones!"

Love how you used the Chuck Jones *waviness* in her ears for the confusion look. Very "Daffy"

*If you can make up words, so can I :p

Feline ears are very expressive! In fact, it's the most emotive part of their face since, y'know, they don't have lips. :)

Nice job! "Flirty" came out very appropriately for the character. :D
