Body Language by moni158 Body Language by moni158
Conveying emotion can be done a lot more effectively when incorporating body language along with facial features. I have done some examples above. You can use many different poses to convey the same emotion. Hunched shoulders can enhance both emotions of shock or anger, while hands on hips can protray annoyance or satisfaction. It all depends on how you combine the two ;)

I will make a more detailed tip sheet when I have a bit more time but have fun and try some expressionistic poses.

The one called 'bold' should actually be 'flirty' >.>

This is great! Body language can actually be a great tool for teaching foreign language too! Using context clues is really important and the way you drew these positions really illustrates the emotions! Nice job. :)

Very helpful! The only thing I would like to point out, though, is the shy pose. Putting the hands behind the back exposes the person's front, which isn't something a shy person would normally do. Nor would they have their legs apart. <:3 The pose you have looks more like one of guilt. ;)

For some reason I immediately interpreted anger as Eren in his titan form.

Nice. I believe the 'something?" is more accurately referred to as a 'bitch I'm fabulous' strut. She is totally flaunting her stuff.

I actually find this very helpful, do you think I can use it? Like, trace some poses or something? I absolutely will give you full credit for the base, it's just that for me doing poses is so hard DX
