Witch Expressions Two – WPJ #11

I hope you’re not tired of looking at this face! πŸ˜‰

On May 18th, I recorded voices with Mary Emfinger and Mark Mushakian for this animation project. Six months from that date, November 18th, is my deadline to have pre-production completed so I can begin animating.

I’ve done a lot of research on “Facial Expressions” lately so I could make my characters more believable. My list of expressions began to grow longer than I wanted it to. I kept some of the most important ones on the list, and they include:

Happy
Sad
Exhausted
Confused
Guilty
Angry
Frustrated
Confident
Embarrassed
Mischievous
Disgusted
Frightened
Ashamed
Smug
Cautious
Hopeful
Lonely
Surprised
Shocked
Thinking
Shouting
Blank
Pout
Ill
Serious
Silly
Annoyed

I tried to capture a few of those here, using the Christmas Witch. Can you guess which one goes with each picture? Neither can I. πŸ™

The Witch model itself is almost complete. I can still be a little more creative with the costume, and I need more work on the hair and perhaps a touch more coloring in the face. But I look forward to putting this Witch away and focusing on other things.

The cottage (exterior and interior) is getting a redo. My earlier post on the outside of the cottage didn’t sit well with me because the building was too modern. I went back to the drawing board and I have something now much more fitting. Safe to say I learned quite a bit about architectural modeling – mainly that I’m not crazy about doing it.

Cheers,

    I say, from top to bottom, left to right:
    …………….. – Annoyed
    Sad – Blank
    Happy – Disgusted
    Shouting – Shocked
    Mischievous – Frustrated

    I think they’re open to interpretation, some more than others.. but off of the list, I think they’re definable enough πŸ™‚
