Title: Face Off?
Post by: JonathanOfDrain on January 03, 2008, 11:52:59 pm
Today I was working on expressions, not really anything anatomical or even realistic. Just trying to convey emotions with the face. I haven't made anything note worthy in a while so I thought it would be nice to start with a boring palette and a 32x32 canvas. I got this:
I was really proud of it. It's got real character to it, I think so at least. It was a nice success so I felt like making a few others because I intended on making some emoticons for a forum soon. They'd be smaller ofcourse.

I kind of lost my thunder at 5. The fifth one was really bad and the 4th one wasn't very good. I tried avoiding symmetry for most of these, that explains the eyepatch.
Feel free to be harsh about them, I don't think anyone will be harsh but if it's for my own good I'd appreciate it.

I visited my grandmother in the hospital (broke her sacrum) and while she was sleeping I kind of whipped up this bugger:
and then reduced it to greyscale because I noticed all those colors had the same luminosity (same thing as value right?) and I remembered Xion making some TV headed robot with colors that were all the same value. Mine isn't nearly as nice, it's also in reverse.

C+C is welcomed, appreciated and encouraged. Thanks.

Very nice faces. The expressions of those first four are very well done. And the grey scale of the last one shows detail that was otherwise lost with the yellow.
