How To Draw Character Feelings Learn How To Express Facial Expressions And Emotions

In our warehouse.


This is a technique book to give a character a soul and make it a “living character”. A “living character” is a character that talks about “feelings” with a face or body.

In manga and illustrations, characters with a living heart are required, so there are many people who want to draw such characters. This book is a technique written by a manga male, Professor Hayashi, who aims to enable anyone to draw “living characters”.In the conventional technique manuals, most of the facial expressions and emotions of people are explained only by typical “feelings of emotions”, and it is the fact that the emotions that are complex and deep in the heart are not fully expressed. In this book, two emotional expressions of “surprise” and “empty” are newly added, and various expressions of “Ki” related to people are further explored to fully express the detailed movements and feelings of people.

Excellent book for starting
It has a specific art-style but it's also a good one. I found it especially useful for it's overall heads and faces. Drawing a good body is one thing but you need a well-shaped head and face to really give life to your drawing.

Really helps give you the references you need going forward.
One of the most important things about drawing, is knowing what you want to draw before starting. Reference is probably one of the most integral parts to art, even if it's from another's art. Asian Fantasy (and girls) is something many love for varying reasons. I love that traditional culture aspect and this is good for that.

It can be easy to forget how hard is it to draw eyes.
This book will definitely give you ideas and references on how to start your journey into drawing better eyes. Even if you don't care to get too into the super high detail, it will help even with simplistic style before it gets more complicated.

Hair is very important for showing a unique personality
These kinds of books are always good for reference if nothing else. Of course, there is more than just reference. Hair can either be very hard or very easy, depending on how much detail you put into it. If you want to try your hand at getting better with the higher detail kind, this will give you some help and ideas.
