25 Expressions Challenge: Jaz by SupaCrikeyDave 25 Expressions Challenge: Jaz by SupaCrikeyDave
Kirb did one of these recently and decided to do one of my own.

It's actually a brilliant idea, since it gets animators and artists to really think about their character, what they do and how they react to certain things. Certainly got me thinking as I did this.

The quality gets better near the end. A few expressions in there I haven't really tried before.

If anyone is up for it, head HERE and give it a go!

Thank you :)

I believe it's a word to describe a person "deprived" of something. Guess I went with "bereft (deprived) of happiness", which I guess would make him depressed.

Great Job!

I printed out a pile of the blank version of this by ... whomever did it ... months ago. I should really get around to doing this drawing exercise myself.

... I really need the practice ...


I can't pick a favorite ... they are all just so perfect.

Awesome job.^^ Each expression is masterfully done, even though mere sketches. :D I've been meaning to get going on this meme, but...I'm just too lazy to look up all those odd words.^^;

Another issue I had was the range of emotions could be even greater. I feel just having one "sad" is limited. Heartbroken? Mildly disappointed? Suicidal? Bah. It's still a great exercise. Perhaps someone should make a "Round 2" exercise.:plotting:

Actually, another fun exercise is to build expressions out of random phrases. "Don't you dare, my friend..." "Hey, don't look at me, I wasn't even there." "Dammit, I can't stay mad at you forever." Some of them you might even be able to create entirely different meanings expressions for.=) You should try it, man!

I agree, a Round 2 would be great. Like, focus on the big three emotions (happy, sad, mad), and then define some subtle nuance acting. Like, the "having a bad day" anger vs the "super angry but trying to hide it" anger.

I really want to make one now. XD

shadowspark Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2008
Heh. That sounds awesome, actually.:plotting: Maybe we could make one with happiness, sadness, fear, anger, etc. as categories rather than standing alone.:P
Have you read Scott McCloud's book "Making Comics"? It's got that, plus a whole chart of Combinations of emotions, for example: "Shock+Anger+Sadness = Grief at loss of a loved one"
Finally, It has a few sarcastic or "mock" expressions, which are pretty important I think, though it's hard at times because they're so similar to the real thing.:P

Anyways, you should totally do a Round 2! :boogie: I will go make a "25 Expressions of Phrases" meme.=) Sound cool?

Oh yeah, I think I remember seeing that in McCloud's book.

I think I should do a round 2! :3 Yaay!

Round 2 would be a great idea. I agree "sad" doesn't really cover the range of emotions Jaz could feel. If there be a round 2, I'd surely do it.

Expressions based on phrases? Hmm, good idea. I'll have to try a few when I next do some drawing.

Cheers, man :D
