25 Expression Challenge by JocelynAda 25 Expression Challenge by JocelynAda
I finally go to do this challenge that I had been wanting to do for a while. Set up over here [link] , the challenge is to take a character of yours and draw them with 25 different expressions. It helps you learn consistency and breathes life into a character that could otherwise seem flat. So I chose my character Katze : [link] I also added 5 phonemes at the bottom, cause I thought it was important to see what your character looks like when they speak :D

It was a great exercise and actually helped me get into a good drawing groove. I sketches each head and added a little grayscale shadow in photoshop, but it's still mostly traditional work. I put alot of thought into body language as well as the face. Katze's hat is supposed to reflect her mood somewhat, I thought it would be cute in motion.

Anyone else like it? Any expressions you see that are weak or lacking?

EDIT 12/09 Dude this got published in Digital Artist's magazine! [link] Super awesome.

It says "ILL" I know it looks strange. I should have changed it to "sick" to be less confusing.

I love "Huh?" and "Triumph" They look awesome ^^
I seriously thought that this character was a guy in this meme though, but then I took a stroll through your gallery and found that I was wrong O.o

Thanks! That's a-ok, Katze is supposed to be very tomboyish. Like Kino from Kino's journey, so if she got mistaken then I'm doing my job right :P
