Step-by-step: Squeeze the face to cap­ture a squint

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation | Artist Q & A -

1 The best way to fig­ure out how th­ese mus­cles work is to use a mir­ror and a cam­era. Try out dif­fer­ent way of squint­ing, and com­pare how your face looks re­laxed and tense. How do your fea­tures move? How much of the face is in­volved? There are a sur­pris­ing amount of ways to squint. 2 Use your best shot as ref­er­ence. There are a few key sec­tions of the face to pay at­ten­tion to. The vis­i­ble parts of the eyes are go­ing to be dark, since the shad­ows and eye­lashes will keep the whites of the eye fairly hid­den. Ba­si­cally, don’t put too much de­tail in the eye. 3 The wrin­kles around the eyes should be at their most pro­nounced. Most peo­ple are quick to re­mem­ber the crow’s feet, but don’t for­get that the Or­bic­u­laris oculi is sur­round­ing the whole thing, be­ing most vis­i­ble around the eye­ball (as much as it can be seen un­der the skin).
