In this Photoshop tutorial, we will further develop our stylized female character concept by drawing some of her expressions. We'll get started by taking a look at each of the features on a face and learning about how they can be drawn to communicate a variety of different expressions. Next we will start slow and remove the problems of perspective from the equation by learning how to draw our expressions on a profile of our character. From here, we'll move on and learn how to draw the same expressions on a 3/4 view of the character. Lastly, we will spend some time learning how a character's body language can be used in conjunction with their facial expression to really help communicate their emotions. After completing this course, you'll have a good idea how to further develop your characters by exploring how their expressions might change depending on the situation. Software required: Photoshop CS5.
