Those Artist Types by Zerna Those Artist Types by Zerna
May or may not be based on life experience.

I can't be the only person who, when drawing characters and expressions, has the habit of making the expression I'm drawing. <|D I catch myself doing weird face contortions way too often for my liking, and, of course, it only seems to be in public. You know, in classrooms, cafes, quiet study areas, libraries. All the best places.

*EDIT* Holy CRAP this got popular fast, wth? This is just a lame scribbled comic anyway...<|D angh;df. Well...nice to know I'm not the only one with this problem out there. <D *END EDIT*

Sierra627 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2013
I'm trying to improve expressions, they aren't really 'extreme' enough for comedic effect, like yours are ^_^'

I do it too. But I do it in quick little bits, so I make the same expression 10 times in a minute. People thought it was a facial tick, or that I had tourettes.  :rofl:
WarningShots Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

people call me out on it all the times -3-



sometimes when I think of drawing an expression (even with no paper of writing ustensil) I make that particular face |3

Shewolf1234567 Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Don't worry, I do this too, I also pretend my pencils a knife to see which position seems most natural for carving into flesh hence the odd stares from random people

MovieCatMar Featured By Owner May 30, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
when I'm reading I make the expressions like the ones in the book and when I'm drawing something interesting to me like a new oc I make this psyco smile and then stop before anyone comes into my room and thinks I'm insain
Drevus Featured By Owner May 27, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I don't do this exactly, but I find myself with my eyes wide open and clenching my teeth. It's awkward when the people who sit near me ask if I'm ok...
OmniTilly Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
You are not alone, my friend. No. Far, FAR from it. :)
MovieCatMar Featured By Owner May 24, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
