Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] Hello and welcome to this series of lessons focusing on drawing expressions for a stylized character presented by digital tutors and Adobe Authorized training Center. My name is Eddie, and I'll be walking through my process of further exploring our stylized female character, which we created in our creating stylized female character concepts in photo shop CS five course. By drawing some of her expressions, we'll get started by taking a look at each of the features on the face and learning about how they could be drawn to communicate a variety of different expressions. Next, we'll 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 female character. Lastly, we'll spend some time learning how our characters body language, can be used in conjunction with their facial expressions to really help communicate their emotions. After completing this course, you'll have a good idea how to further develop your characters by exploring pounder expressions might change depending on the situation. So let's go and get started with our next lesson.
