Expression and body language
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.
