Allys Bardic -Expressions- by DPRagan Allys Bardic -Expressions- by DPRagan
I blame/credit :icondrunkfu: for getting me to work on this

It's a work in progress I hope to stick them in this [link]

I don't know why I come back to the idea of Allys Bardic wearing pigtails...

BTW I can't decide whether one is Confused or WTF?

EDIT: You might have to download for best view.

i think Allys Bardic from the Alpha Centauri story looks very nice with pigtails, they suit her quite well to be perfectly honest ^^

Anyways, good work on the expression DPR :)

Incredulous: PHENOMINAL COSMIC POWER!!! :evillaugh: -> Itty bitty living space! :begone:

Well, I've always said that I love the emotive nature of your artwork. You can do things with facial expressions and body posing that many of the best artists I watch and know of are not doing. You may not think you're fast enough, but I'm not sure that matters. And with your ability to do tech, organic, regular people, anthro people, and super-natural... well, as I keep saying... I'd hire you in a heartbeat if my plans were but a little further along, and I think any publisher looking for a concept artist or illustrator would be out of their damn minds to not give you a good, long look and serious consideration.

Just my opinion though... I've only got 25 years of collecting comics and playing RPGs both pen and paper and digital to back me up..... Oh, and a couple national art awards in my youth, before everything went digital and I was able to preserve anything in a meaningful way. :(

Oddly I still do my line art in with Mechanical pencil...I guess I'm a semi-luddite.

I do have a tablet, just can't get comfortable with it.

Well, at the risk of being cliche, it's obviously working for you, so I see no reason to mess with the flow.

My two favorites:

Happy

and

Triumph

Happy simply offers happiness. And well Triumph...well, it made me think of the video game ''portal'' ^^

If you don't think playing, imagine being in a test lab, having to pass many levels with an artificial intelligence telling you that you'll get cake if you survive the tests. Sometimes it encourages you, sometimes it directly tries to get you killed. Generally it's quite hilarious.

Here is a link to the ending of the game and the song that made me think of ''Triumph''!

When she has pigtails she reminds me a lot of asuka from evangelion especially with the bodysuit...

Thank you, if you notice on the -nom- able expressions the Nugrrl was never much of a flirted before becoming a member of the fairer gender, this carries over her flirting consists of a head-to-toe blush.

How's that for -nom- age?

i think she looks good in pigtails, but then, i'm a habitual wearer of power-steering myself, so i could be biased.

the "why are you blurry?" is i think the cutest of them, though it is nifty to see the life you put into her with the variety.

Thanks, admittedly I have no idea what a drunk person looks like other then watching some pretend not to be never much of a drinker myself.

it varies. there's your happy drunks, your mellow drunks, your chroal drunks, your belligerent drunks, your whiny drunks... when you get right down to it, if you pick any random emotional reaction there's probably someone for whom that's the one that blows all out of normal proportion when they're drunk.

That's good start. The expressions are definitely a good range and all. I was referring more to the type of face though, than the expressions on them (though practicing expressions is always a good idea).

Lots of artists fall into this trap, ending up drawing the exact same body and exact same type of face on everything with different hair styles and outfits (Rumiko Takihashi for one). It's a hard rut to get out of trying to get more variety in the types of faces you draw; different jaw lines, different shapes of the head, different types of eyes, different noses. You really start to notice the differences in faces when you draw real people. Life drawing isn't really about drawing hot people, or people that look good, it's more about being able to reproduce what you see and try to make it look like a person. Beauty is fairly subjective, anyway, right?

On a different note, I've been thinking of doing one of these expression types of sheets for a while now >_> I think there's a meme out there for it.

That's actually more of a personal preference for my stars. I do give other characters different shapes. I give older women more angular and longer faces. children get plumber ones with less defined jawlines. ;p

I give Ryoko a sharper jawline then I do say Ayla and I try to give Fey a more pointed chin. for Hank I'm trying for a young somewhat lanky-but-wiry Patrick Swayze

Yes there Is you can find a quick-link to the meme in my Favorites

as an after thought... I know a few people that do some expressions the same. it's all in the personality of the character

I really like how you handle expressions, you always have the most expressive faces. And i like that.
