So far the series isn't half bad, even if the special effects look like they screencapped a game of Galactic Civilisations.
I'll try one right now!Also, the way I've found to capture the expressions the best is to paint them, not draw them, using the technique that you call pure paints. I find it a lot more fun than trying to get the face right with just lines, and it makes you think more about the structure and shape of the face, rather than just what lines are in it. Here's an example of what I'm talking about:
Ignore his outfit, I never really bothered to finish it.
I generally take 2-3 hours on these, over the course of a couple of days, so you probably won't be able to go into a ton of detail, but I do think that it could be good for you to try out.
Day 379: Art Not Guaranteed
Quite like how this turned out.
Okay, a total dodge of the expressions thing but it had to be done. I've always loved facelessness. When I was a kid, Soundwave and Optimus Prime were best transformers because they didn't have mouths, they just had visor things.

Anyways, back to the schedule tomorrow. Tonight, more B5!
Time: 1.5 hours
Music: A Change of Seasons
