Finally, with the basic elements in place it’s a matter of working out the expressions you are after… Adding different mouth shapes, squinting or enlarging the eyes.
I will add a page or two with the facial expressions here soon. For now I want to finish another tutorial I have been dying to complete first – a cartoony helicopter to take me back to one of my favorite jobs (doing the (pixel) art of HeliAttack 3 in 2005).
I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did. Honestly, I really missed doing tutorial art and writing these little posts.
