Emotions and Facial Expression by Majnouna Emotions and Facial Expression by Majnouna
Get all of my human anatomy tutorials in one convenient book or e-book!

Full tutorial list: [link]

There isn't a whole lot to say about this tutorial: obviously, it's a guide to the variety of emotions the human face can express, with as many pointers as I could think of to help you understand how the different parts of the face (and body) are articulated in connection with specific feelings. It was a fun tut to make, requiring more intuition and observation than research.

The usual disclaimers apply: no part of this tutorial may be reproduced under any shape or form, the tutorial may not be reposted anywhere, etc. You can save or print it for your own private reference.

First time I've commented on this site... I have say this is probably THE most useful tutorial I've seen on here. I'm starting work on a comic book series, and this tut will be incredibly helpful for me, as I have little experience in drawing expressions. Thank you!

This is useful with the added descriptions. Not all characters are the same, so the description help when dealing with any character, not just the tutorial male.
