Body Language, Micro expressions, Eye contact
I found while I was looking for something awesome to post a couple of blog posts from John Suler, and before you ask about it no, he is not an Animator, in matter of fact he is a photographer. You could ask why have I put up links to this, I will tell you that in fact a Photographer's work is much harder that being an animator. Just think of taking your own work squashing it into a one Frame and then expressing what you wanted to say... it's hard right??
But he had some good posts on:
Body language, Visualizing and Verbalizing, Eye to Eye (please note that you usually don't get a animated character to make contact to a viewer), Facial Asymmetry and "Character, Micro expressions, S lines and Psychological lines.
And before you leave to have your cup of coffee, here is some really interesting Q.A. from Richard Davidson taken from The "Salon" interviewed on Emotions and how that affects the brain, his book “The Emotional Life of Your Brain: How Its Unique Patterns Affect the Way You Think, Feel, and Live, and How You Can Change Them,” .
