OKAY!! SO I’ve gotten a couple asks about expressions. This is so sloppy and hastily done that I hope you can read my writing and that any of it makes sense?? FIRST OF ALL THIS IS NOT A GUIDELINE It is me giving to you some of my knowledge about how I do expressions. THERE IS NO FORMULA TO IT. EXAGGERATE. EXPERIMENT.   Look in the mirror, play with your face, make silly expressions! It’s fun, and you learn a lot through observation. SO PLEASE THIS IS PROBABLY VERY INACCURATE and I’m betting I’m missing some very important points, BUT HERE YOU GO. I sincerely hope I have helped you through your block!!

As per request (thanks, singingrabbitskull!), I did a half-tutorial, half-sporadic notes on how I generally render basic expressions.

There’s already a lot of cool tutorials that exist on how to do expressions, so I tried to just look at a lot of really minor details that I’ve used but haven’t seen commonly passed down.

required disclaimer: this is just how I go about it, feel free to ignore bits, steal bits, do whatever you want with them. Hope this helps, and if you have any questions scream at my inbox!

Palidoozy is an awesome person with great art and a comic. This tutorial just made her even more awesome.

Hey Anon! Sorry I took so long to answer this—I wanted to do something more in-depth over just a ‘ok draw a circle now MAKE IT AWSUM.’ I also tried to recall from other tutorials stuff in them I didn’t feel like they spoke about.

also—I’m very sorry I don’t have more advice to give about ears. I am not completely confident with them yet! Gotta keep practicing.

As always, I am not 100% correct on everything, so feel free to use what you want and ignore what you don’t want!

Here’s some more tutorials on noses and ears that might be helpful, if this one isn’t:

Another nose tutorial!

Ear tutorial by the same artist. This artist has TONS of other useful tutorials too, btw!

More noses.

riddle me this WHY DOES MOLLY HOOPER’S ID BADGE HAVE HER WEARING HUGE GLASSES BUT SHE NEVER DOES

GLASSES ARE STYLISH AND IMAGINE THE POTENTIAL FOR CUTE SHERLOLLY MOMENTS WHERE SHERLOCK NOTICES HER WEARING GLASSES AND COMPLIMENTS THEM OR TRIES THEM ON OR TELLS HER THEY SUIT HER OR SOMETHING 

It’s probably an old picture from where she first started working at Barts. Maybe she got more comfortable with wearing contact lenses or wanted to change her look.

But she does look fucking adorable in glasses. I like to image her with her hair up in a messy bun and wearing glasses…. And nothing but Sherlock’s shirt.

Also, she could have gotten lasik surgery to correct her vision because a) wearing contacts around chemical labs is a bad idea unless you have the air tight goggles on 24/7 (people do it, but they really shouldn’t) and b) it’s a bitch and a half having to wear the proper PPE when you wear glasses (this I know from personal experience).

This is why there’s prescription safety glasses that you can get made (and your job should pay for, tbh).

The Morning Sickness

The nausea had sent Sherlock lurching towards the nearest toilet. He leaned against the wall and rested his forehead on the bowl.

Hello! I’m wondering if you could please tag this with a trigger warning for abuse? This is reproductive coercion and a violation of trust that can be very triggering.

Thank you.
