Yes I think this is a pretty important subject, all you guys

LINKS:
The Beginner's guide to Body Language <--- much of the information there is mentioned in the tutorial.

Make sure you also check out my expression flash-game:
<--- the random button sucks.

Yeah sorry guys but it would be too much if I stuffed three different subjects into one deviation The file size is too big already.(maximum length is 18000px)

So I'll save myself some time to sleep and just upload this now.

So... is it wrong to draw a surprised face as 'fear' expression in the Western Culture even when you are a Japanese or is it wrong when you draw the surprised face of a Western Human similar to that of a Japanese?

These are so so helpful!! i normally do kind of a semi-realism style anyways, and i do have experience drawing from real life, but these tutorials really break it down an make it a lot easier to remember and understand (just wanted to let you know that i'm creepin' through all of them)
thank you!! ^_^

Fear is the most basic and "wild" emotion, not anger. (I watch a lot of crappy anthropology documentaries and it's been bugging me for a while).

Not to be pointy, but I didn't write that it's "the" most basic emotion. I wrote "One of the most basic".

I wouldn't say "drop manga style". I'd prefer "trying something new".

Well...a few years ago anime is all I could draw. But then I started drawing slightly more realistically, and discovered that I enjoyed that kind of expression much more. Many people deliberately start drawing circles with huge eyes on them before actually studying the human proportions. And that bothers me... :'( So I'd advice starters to set aside the manga while they're still not familiar with accurate anatomy. Even mangakas must study anatomy, lol. I'm sorry if I didn't make myself clear.

:iconfoervraengd:
FOERVRAENGD Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2011  Professional General Artist
What you say is true, it is good to study real anatomy in order to improve their style in manga. (considering all the other people who says that too I guess it must be "true" :P )

My point of view is that there is no "right way" to start. There is no rules, only tools. You can start with drawing manga, and then advance to realism.
(if you read part twelve of this series, you'll get what I mean)

When I saw the arrows that were supposed to illustrate emotions, I didn't find them weird or anything, but I found myself making weird faces while watching them and trying to feel my muscles follow the arrows... :D
My bf looked at me in a funny way when he saw what I was doing... :'D

Hahah yeah that is a fun fact actually!
If you haven't thought about it already; when you draw a face of someone smiling and focus a lot on the smile - you will actually start smiling yourself. You more or less copy the expression you draw!

My art teacher told us to draw faces with different expressions. He told us to draw "A hysterical girl". And apparently, we made all sorts of funny faces because he just sat there giggling while looking at us drawing...

Yeah I told my bf (who was wondering if I've gone mad or something..) that it's quite normal to copy the emotion to your own face (or the position the character is in with your body, hands, legs..) while drawing and that I've always done it and always will, even though I might not always realize I'm doing it... :D Usually I realize I'm doing weird faces, when I wiggle my eyebrows up and down and in every direction. Don't know why, but they are the muscles I feel the best when they are moving. :D

He must have had fun lesson that day, I can totally imagine that situation.. :D

Actually, peoples' pupils tend to widen when they're angry or frightened. This is because our body is trying to collect more information about our surrounding by letting in more light.

Some smile when they're sad(not just to cover that they're sad)
I think it's cuz' you kinda close your eyes, then your cheeks goes upwards with your mouth cuz' if your sad you probably won't be able to keep them down or something (or something)

But when we have bad intentions (to kill etc, etc...), we would have rather larger pupils than normal, as I was told.
