25 Essential Expressions: Tael by Tazi-san 25 Essential Expressions: Tael by Tazi-san
Tael puppy . . . :aww:

This was sitting on my PC 80% finished so I did the last stretch.

As I drew the panels, I found Tael's disposition to be pretty diverse and at times intense. He certainly evolved a lot since I created him in the 8th grade.

I certainly recommend this exercise for character development.

Heheh, thanks! Tael is so fun to draw. His emotions tend to be more extreme.

You're welcome miss.

Each drawing shows a very different yet detailed emotion, so it's not very hard to imagine a scenario to go with it. The fact that you made 26 different ones for a single page with some clothing swap is awesome. I also really like your characters, which another reason for the 'fave'.

Err... By 'more' extreme, do you mean what I'm already looking at or is Tael even MORE expressive... If so then YIKES!!

Dang, his WTF expression looks more ticked than his Rage expression. O.o

In this one? Confident and Ill are my faves. Very nicely drawn!

Heheh, thanks Tim.

Yeah, I guess both expressions are kind of ticked but the WTFudge is more blowing a gasket while rage is directed at a very deep offense.

I'd love to see what you come up with too.

Those are some beautiful facial expressions. The thing the character is in is still in production right? I hope I get to see some of it before I have to leave for Army Basic Training.

This is wicked mate, I love seeing all the different experssions he has and the way you can draw them so they all look like the same person is something I aspire to do oneday. At the moment I wouldn't be able to do anything like this but hopefully oneday =) This looks fantastic mate I love it.

I know what you mean, maybe I will do it sooner rather than later then =D

No you are right, if I keep saying later then I will never get to the stage where I can do it as well as you.

This one of the better versions of this meme I've seen thus far. It was well worth finishing those last 20%. :) Tael is a wonderful character and I love seeing him in your pictures in any way you depict him.

Y'know, I downloaded that template before and printed it out, just got frustrated with my failure to visualize how to convey certain emotions right with facial expressions. However, you miss have now given an excellent example for me to be able to draw those expressions myself.
Plus, once I've painstakingly put together a sheet like this for a character based off examples from you or some other art I liked, it can serve as a reference for me to get used to the subtle ways of differentiating those expressions and be natural at it :aww: So thank you! Lotta help.

And I just wanna say I love that you've kept that as your avatar for so long. Just was such a pretty drawing of Sally and at this rate I connect your screen-name with it instantly :XD:

Heheh, yeah, I'e attempted to change my avatar before but I like it's familiarity.

However, Angry Tael is very cute to me. I'm kinda weird like that.

You added the Kiddo at the bottom, like a baby picture shown at a wedding, to make the girls go "Awww." and the groom to turn bright pink. I also didn't even see it the first time through.

Fer real? He looks like he's going to shank somebody XD

You know, I'm not quite sure HOW Tael would react to someone showing his baby pictures around. It would depend on who it's being shown to.
