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

Ahhh it's gorgeous. I love all the different expressions. I can almost see the character in real life screwing his face up in disgust, or acting all drunk and hiccuping. Excellent, truly!!!! <3

"Serious" made me finally crack up so hard...And threw me into another coughing fit. :XD: This is great, the expressions leave a lot of room for interpretation. I especially love your disregard for box-like structures.

On nyt ihan pakko kysäistä ettämistä olet oppinu piirtämään näin hyvin koiraeläinten ilmeitä??

Kasvonilmeet toimii tosi hyvin ja kuvaavat mielentilaa erinomaisesti. Great work! :heart:

:iconcanisalbus:
CanisAlbus Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2012  Student General Artist
Jaa-a, hyvä kysymys :'D
Koirillahan ei varsinaisesti ole inhimillisiä ilmeitä, joten kaipa minä vaan muokkasin tukun ihmisilmeitä koirien kasvojen anatomiaan sopivaksi~

Kiitos, hienoa kuulla että lopputulos miellyttää!
