So expressive, these faces. >u<
The enraged face reminded me of one of Disney's Big Hero 6's Hiro's expressions on the model sheet, so much to the point of allusion. 8D This just proves that you have mastered the art of drawing expressions!

Hm, with this tutorial aimed at more or less experienced artists, I'm not sure if this'll help a lot, but there's no telling until I try!
FINALLY, A GUIDE SO I CAN GET RID OF DULL SURPRISE ON MY ARTWORK!! :iconsobbplz:
