Ultimate Expression Reference by kalgeo Ultimate Expression Reference by kalgeo
I always needed a detailed expression reference and I wanted it all in one, but could never find one :(

So for the sake of my sanity I decided to make one of my own. I kept it to the pretty basic emotions and only front on. If I had enough time I would do some emotions from different angles ... but I don't.

I have made this in a high resolution and an A2 side for all of your benefit. Although it is awkward to think some people will print this off and it has my face all over it, someone had to do it. LOL.

Anyways I hope this helps you all aswell :)

This is an old reference I made with more unusual faces: [link]

yes, this is perfect! Natural emotion, no weird faces, and you don't hide your face behind bangs too :) that's going to be useful, thanks!

Try making the expression yourself and photograph it :)
