Kera Expressions

Been exploring facial expressions. It's tough designing certain emotions effectively with two beady eyes and no eye brows. So I had to look at a lot of artists for reference. My biggest influence was the infallible Calvin and Hobbes. If you look at a lot of the comic strips you'll notice that the people don't have eye brows!! Bill Watterson did a masterful job selectivly choosing when and when not to apply these "magically appearing" brows.
