your face *u*

The Eleventh Hour so far has my favorite storytelling from Griffin! So here’s a pseudo-movie poster ehuehueue

Had to do another illustration for our Fantasy Illust class and our prof gave me the go signal to draw TAZ again as long as I found good face refs for them. B^) I based Magnus, Taako and Merle on John Spainhour, Paul Boche, and Brian Cox respectively!

hi Ally,,, as some one who's trying to get the hang of drawing expressions and faces in general I was wondering if you had any tips as to how to make it more natural?? like I find myself drawing the same expression every time on different characters and I feel like it's hard to change it up with out making it look strange :/

this is a very psychological barrier that i also face!! sometimes we’re in the mindset that oooo gotta draw our characters glamourous/pretty that dramatic expressions that stretch the face feels like it’s ruin that, so you have to start with an open mind and be ready to stretch that mouth a little longer, raise those brows a little higher, etc.

having a mirror beside you to reference from your own expression is very helpful as well! here’s my tag for expression tutorials and refs

gentle reminders

  • wash your face!! (esp important if u wear makeup!)
  • put some moisturizer on!!
  • drink some water
  • if things are confusing it’s okay to not have everything figured out!!
  • breathe in and out. slowly
  • relax your shoulders
  • stop clenching your jaw
  • go pee
  • if things aren’t going so good it’s alright! i believe in you
  • don’t forget your meds!
  • water some plants!! it will help
  • lip balm!!
  • get some sleep if you are tired
  • you will be okay!!
  • i love you !!
