It's great that you're sharing these easy-to-follow tutorials! I still need so much practice, so I'm very grateful (and yes, most of the expressions I draw look like the first two in this tutorial ^_^ ). Thanks a bunch!

Almost all of these look like Sokka and Ang from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Did anyone else notice that?

Probably "cartoony." Stylistically it's a mishmash of asian-american cartooning practices.

I know what you mean by the making the corresponding faces as you draw them. I doodle a lot at taco bell (free refills of baja blast, son!) and I'll often catch myself doing silly faces to get a better feel for them. If I'm drawing pictures of my son in public it's a given that I'll look insane.
