25 Expressions Challenge - Masque by CanisAlbus 25 Expressions Challenge - Masque by CanisAlbus
I know I shouldn't be submitting anything here right now, but I just got this finished after days of work and I cannot resist :I

So, here's the 25 expressions challenge, featuring my villainous canine OC Masque. I imagine him as a very expressive guy, so he fits this meme perfectly. Unlike some of my other characters (Machete for example), he has a broad repertoire of various expressions, many of them being rather toothy and snarly. And don't forget those ears, which by the way were quite a pain to get fit in some of those boxes. Sorry if you can't read the text because of the ears covering them.

This was tons of fun, seriously. I don't think I've ever drawn so many Masque heads in such a short time. I usually have too short attention span to manage to actually finish this kind of things, so I'm extremely happy that this one is now done~

Uhhh, it's actually quite hard to give semi-realistic animals humanlike expressions. My kingdom for eyebrows! D:
Oh, and if some of these doesn't fit the description, the fault is mine. I had to check a few from a dictionary and I'm not quite sure if they all went right :/
Which one is your favorite? :3

Tired = Suspicious
This has to be one of my favorite expression memes. He makes for such a distinctive set!

these are great
my favourite is the tired one because it looks so suspicious and unimpressed to me.

Thanks c:
Haha, the tired was one of the hardest expressions to portray, so it's good to hear it looks nice~
