Dayside's Expression Meme! by JustDayside Dayside's Expression Meme! by JustDayside
Wow, this sure took ferever, but was completely worth it! I'd been kinda feelin' uncertain of what I wanted to do artistically a few days ago, an' while I couldn't make up my mind I happened upon this neat expression meme -- [link]

I figured I'd do it 'cos, well, one, I suck at expressions, an' two, I thought it'd be a good opportunity to work on a simpler style while also workin' on breakin' down my really restrictive color barriers. So I did that. I could still push my color and expressions further, but this is, from my perspective, a crazy improvement over what I've been able to produce in either of those areas in the past.

I think your style is by far my favorite painterly style I've ever seen.
I mean, I haven't seen every last artist of the type, XD
But.
I REALLY love yours.
I wish I could do something like it.

You can use like any set of colors, and still have everything blend
beautifully.
Keep it up! :D

Wow, that's a huge compliment, hah, thanks so much! Honestly I barely know what I'm doing though, heheh. Sometimes it works out an' sometimes it doesn't. I've got a looot to learn. XD

I'm glad ya enjoy my work though! Hope I can keep makin' stuff ya like! :D

An' as far as doin' stuff like it goes, I tend ta do my best work whenever I step out of my comfort zone an' try somethin' new -- so just go for it! After a little bit of experimentation I bet you'll be surprised at what ya can pull off. XD

You're welcome! :D
Yeah, I think most people do XD
You're doing good though!

Yeah! I'm sure you will! :meow:

Experimenting is usually a general key!
I've recently been trying some painterly-ish things.
I mean. I haven't really looked at any tutorials so I
have no idea what I'm doing. It's fun though XD

Ahhh, these are so adorable :iconsocuteplz:

I'm trying to work away from the round little button snouts I've been drawing and go for something like what you've done. I managed to get the side view how I like it, but every single other angle leaves me stumped, ha ha.

Hahah, at some point they stop looking like "my little ponies," though -- I mean, I'm okay with that, since context an' stuff'll help people deduce, but just depends on how... I'unno, like, tangible you want 'em ta be, as opposed to abstract/cartoony. I need to get better at abstract. >.<

wow. thank you so much for making this. mainly,because I wanted to start a blog for my character, but I'm having trouble with his facial structure and expressions. and Dayside's facial structure is pretty close to his, so I'll definetly reference some of the positions here when I'm practicing.

I love how you made the colors of the different faces complement the mood the face is in. It moreover strengthens the emotion, and that is really swell!
