We've already had "Need references?" and "Need textures?", time for something else. This actually is about references again, but about these more specified ones. Emotions. How many times have you wondered why is that the faces you draw look as empty as dead? Depicting moods can be a very hard task. Try sketching yourself (yes, a mirror would be a nice thing to have in this case), pull faces at diffrent angles, change light. And take a look at these below. Compare.

This is a long shot, but I'm a writer and I have a terrible time trying to describe faces. I was wondering if maybe I've been looking in the wrong place for a guide to describing facial structure and features - so I'm wondering if maybe you know of a resource that shows a face, and then describes the features? Hoping...

Hmm, well, I think that the 2nd featured deviation could be helpful, it has plenty of diffrent moods described [link] (:

Great resources!! I've had to google images for "deceit" & "lies" before, so this is good to have.

Have you got a link to the stock&resources gallery? I don't even know how to find the "front page" of DA that other people mention in their journals & notes.

on the left, there are listed subcategories of this main category. Under "stock images" you'll find sort of images I've listed in this feature, and there's also a category for tutorials. Go exploring (:
