A conversation between Alex Hirsch and Emmy Cicierega on Twitter. Clearly, the staff of Gravity Falls are professionals and Season Two will be better than ever.

(The punchline doesn’t really work well as a picture, so click here to hear Alex’s reading of his own Emmy-worthy dialogue.)

You may get asked this a lot, so please excuse my ignorance - but how do you go about constructing character expressions and body language and such? Thanks!

Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:

1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.

First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.  

So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose.  I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.

start to put on features

fix stuff

put on more stuff

fix stuff again

erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring

Whole head is a gesture!image

2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first.  You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.

So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.

That’s the simplest explanation I got.  Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!

when it comes to specific poses I try to first draw the most basic shapes and movement lines and then gradually go into more and more details, like so:

if you have difficulties with perspective, try drawing a perspective grid first:

it’s nothing different than tips from other artists, but I hope it helped a little ;u;

A reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans has been discovered deep beneath the Earth’s surface. The finding could help explain where Earth’s seas came from.

The water is hidden inside a blue rock that lies 700 kilometres underground in the mantle, the layer of hot rock between Earth’s surface and its core.

Some geologists think water arrived in comets as they struck planets, but the new discovery supports an alternative idea that the ocean oozed out of Earth’s interior layer.

WHAT THE FUCK

I just wanna point something out.

You know how you always see those pictures of the strange types of fish that live in the deep, deep sea?

like this one

or this one

and this one

If any and if possible imagine what the fish look like in the DEEP, DEEP sea. 

I’m smelling a million dollar creepy story. 

That smells awful… fishy
