    Angry Working on emotions

    So, I've been working on some emotions for a secret project and I am a bit stumped. I enjoy working with the character so far and most of the emotions the character emotes looks great. It's just when I try to create an angry emotion from the side view, it just doesn't look right. it's mostly how the mouth shapes when she is angry. I wanted to receive some small advice while asking if there is a program that will display different emotions.

    ~Thanks

    Get two mirrors and angle them so you can see your profile and pull some faces.

    I have this book, which has been really helpful to me in the past: http://www.amazon.com/Facial-Express...al+expressions

    Or you could just use a mirror or get a friend to pose for you, I just think it's a sweet book that's good to have around.

    If you're going for scientific accuracy and have some interest in psychology, you might want to get into Paul Ekman's research on facial expressions of basic emotions as well.
