I've been wanting to do something like this for a WHILE now haha. WHO doesn't love expressions? I sure do ;D

But sometimes they're kind of hard to draw...right? WEEELL where better to look for guidance than professional animation and cinema?

SO HERE'S THE IDEA!:

1. Every week (or whenever I feel like it) I'll post a screenshot from any particular movie that has an expression that looks fun to draw

2. Every week WE will recreate that expression.. but here's the twist... ON OUR OWN characters! It's an excellent way to practice drawing techniques and improve (I for one sometimes get stuck in drawing the same mouth shapes all the time--this helps!)

3. You can do anything you want if it's as simple as just drawing the character with the expression, or drawing a whole background and scene to go with out-- don't overthink it! This is mostly just a drawing exercise

4. HAVE FUN! I am hoping this will bring some good laughs as well help us sharpen our skillz


--------------------------
Current Week:

Week 1:

Week 2:


You guys want to give it a shot? :3
(If you have ideas for expressions to use in later weeks-- or days depending on what I feel like-- feel free to PM them to me!)

Awesome!! Can't wait!
And no rush at all--this expression will be up at LEAST a few days (I'll probably make it weekly since I know I'm pretty busy too X"D)

Ohhhh YES
I LOVE drawing goofy facial expressions! Or I should say...expressions in general :D
Thank you for this thread! I'll be sure to keep an eye open for future expressions to recommend!

claps slowly

Looks like a ton of fun and a great motivation to help improve in this difficult area. I'm super busy this week but I'd love to contribute a quick thing before the next challenge comes in. This was one of my favorite movies as a kid.

This looks like fun!

But I'm going to wait until I'm done with the "30 Days of Characters" challenge before picking up another challenge.

Omg I've always wanted to do the 30 days of characters but EVERY YEAR I always realize it's that time when it's too late x"D. Aaand I always happen to be busy. Dernit! Well there's always next year :'P

Kei Esteban:I Love this Challenge idea!



Hahhaa too cute!

Isn't it great how the same expressions can be interpreted in so many different ways? This is super entertaining for me!:3

Ummmmmm you do NOT suck at all haha but yay! I hope this thread will help you! It's such a great exercise for anyone :3

I get super intimidated once I reach a certain point of exaggerating certain facial features

Yay I'm excited to see what you guys are all gonna do!

I've done Josh and Angus in these expressions high on LSD:

Is Angus seeing monsters coming at him or being taken to flashbacks of traumatic incidents he's long repressed?

I absolutely LOVE drawing expressions especially more extreme/exaggerated ones, but in my last page I found myself struggling with some expressions for the first time in awhile, and expressions are what’s like, most important to me, so I was tryna figure out how to get back on track when this thread popped up!! Thanks, Serpy!

this looks really small on the forum, so here’s a link to a bigger size:Link!
