About This Class

Emoji Me! - the Art of Facial Expression, will have you transforming selfies into emoji's in no time! 

Understanding facial expression is crucial when it comes to illustrating characters for a story. This class is packed full of information that will help you learn how to ‘read’ facial expressions and then transfer them onto a character that you’ll be drawing.

Explore the six basic emotions - joy, sadness, surprise, anger, disgust and fear, branching out from these, discover an even wider spectrum of emotional possibilities. Learn how subtle changes with the eyes, eyebrows, nose and mouth can transform your character’s mood. 

This class is ideal for budding artists, illustrators, animators and anyone interested in character development.
