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.

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.

Probably have commented on this already, but this is still the most comprehensive guide to expressions I've ever seen.

This is one of the most amazing things. Expressions may not be the hardest thing to grasp about humans, but they can certainly be tricky, especially the angry ones. Plus they not only apply to humans but can apply to other "talking" animals too. Just amazing, this is by far the most interesting and helpful of your tutorials. But all of them are really great, and really helpful. Keep on making them. I'm almost tempted now to change my "25 expressions challenge" into a challenge in getting the 58 of these expressions. Either way this is a fantastic reference. Your work is just truly amazing, thank you so much for taking the time to make these tutorials :clap:

This is soooo useful. I had this as one of my permanently opened tabs on my old computer, which broke. I had found it through stumbleupon and couldn't remember where it was. Then I found it again today and I am so glad. Saved it to my flashdrive so I'll never lose it again. This chart has saved me so much time and effort looking for emotion references. It's really a lifesaver, by far the most helpful guide I have ever come across. I cannot thank you enough for this.
