katherine // i like flowers and obsessing over fictional characters //
Headcanon that after the battle of Hogwarts, George dyes his hair an outrageous colour, and at first Molly is mad, but then she hears George whisper “I kept thinking it was him in the mirror”.
Remus Arthur Potter, you were named after two men who looked out for my safety and cared about my well-being out of altruism and decency rather than because I was a tool for them to use or because I was someone’s son.
I’m not sure how swell of a job I’d do at making a tutorial on face shapes and expressions tbh;;;
Although it’s really sweet that you would like one from me uvu
I’d say the biggest thing about face shapes just playing with them a lot. Take your pencil and just make several random shapes, and then go back and try to fill them with a character. Try and use that shape and make it into a person’s face and you’ll see what an interesting looking set of characters you’ve created.
I also recommend looking at people and looking at the shapes their faces make. Draw the shapes as you see them but then start stretching and squashing them in places. Play around with it!
See what happens when you make their brow more pronounced.
See what happens when you give them saggy cheeks.
See what happens when you put their eyes closer together vs. further apart.
There’s so many possibilities! It takes just a lot of playing around and seeing what works and what doesn’t. :>
And as for expressions, Tracy Butler’s tutorial is a good one but there was a different one that broke it down really simple that I wish I could find for you. Apparently it’s not in my tags which is a real bummer sorry;;
*realize i like the aesthetic the typo gave to what i said so i put the typo back in*
