    Icon Facial Expressions

    I have been encountering a problem with drawing facial expressions for my characters. I have been trying to study human faces to gather the most data on how to mesh this into an anime style for my drawings. I don't want to buy a "How to draw manga/anime" book because I really don't learn much from them. Is it an accurate book for learning how to draw facial expressions through visual representation.

    I found this book here, does anyone have this book?: http://www.amazon.com/Facial-Express...al+Expressions

    -Thank You in Advance!

    Lightbulb Virus?

    Also, a little side note. At my school they have the site blocked (On a 48 hour site check) due to a conficker virus. Has there been any information on this site receiving any hacks? I ask this only because I want to keep this site running through my college so that I can keep receiving information on drawing.

    I got this book. Even though lots of face expressions in it look very forced and light isn't the best quality but it's still good starting point for experimentation. I bought it so that I have some reference that I can put into bag and take somewhere with me. Too much computer these days.

    If you want some face expressions in digital format there is one project I found on deviantart. It's basically the same idea as the book (and maybe even more content)

    If you want to see more how the face structure changes in case of differen expressions then there are few options.
    The most common is just making face expressions in the mirror.

    You can download free version of a program called FaceGen Modeller where under "Morph" tab there are different sliders with face expressions. You can even mix them together to get different results. Even though you can get different faces they usually aren't very characteristic so it's not perfect for everything.

    Also lately I found bunch of 3d face scans where for every face pack there are 8 files with different face expressions.
    Faces can be downloaded from here - http://shapes.aim-at-shape.net/viewgroup.php?id=862
    To view the WRL file with texture you need Cortona 3d viewer installed on some browser - http://www.cortona3d.com/Products/Vi...3D-Viewer.aspx
