How to Draw Cartoon Emotions & Facial Expressions Drawing Tutorials
You can change the expressions on your face without changing your emotions (by acting) but don’t you wish that drawing facial expressions was just as easy? Well, with practice, you will see that it is just this easy and a LOT of fun to try. Most facial expressions can be easily made by changing the size, shape, and relationship of eyes, nose, and mouth and other parts of the face such as eyelids and eyebrows. If you want to be a cartoonist, an illustrator, an artist or just simply good at drawing, it would be a good idea to start studying people’s faces. Keep a sketchpad with you at all times and when you see people’s faces change in emotion, quickly draw a simple shape (as seen below) to chart out all of the differentt expressions that a person’s face can make. It would also be a good idea to study your own face in the mirror as you make silly and crazy faces. This is a lot of fun and is a good drawing exercise for beginner artists.
