Ex­pres­sion and body lan­guage

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Insight Art Of Movement -

Along with in­cor­po­rat­ing what the char­ac­ter is think­ing, we should also con­sider how the char­ac­ter is feel­ing. As the artist we can’t tell the viewer how they feel, and so it’s best to use vis­ual clues to get the mes­sage across. Through the use of fa­cial ex­pres­sions and body lan­guage the emo­tions of the char­ac­ter will be read im­me­di­ately. A char­ac­ter feel­ing con­fi­dent may stand with their shoul­ders back and their head held high. On the other hand, a timid char­ac­ter may be cross­ing their arms, with their head hung low.
