Facial Expression notes

Here's something from over the summer. I gave my students a little demo on things to keep in mind when managing facial expression models for their characters.

How the body correlates with the face?

Hello X. In answer to your question I would say... appropriately. The pose of the body should be appropriate to the emotion illustrated through the character's facial expression. Full body expression is normally termed attitude posing. Putting the character "in attitude" is the full body equivalent of what facial expression is about.
