Body Language Cheat Sheet for Writers

As described by Selnick’s article:

Author and doctor of clinical psychology Carolyn Kaufman has released a one-page body language cheat sheet of psychological “tells” (PDF link) fiction writers can use to dress their characters.

This is something I have always encouraged people to consider when writing. If you can afford it, and you have one in your area - TAKE A BODY LANGUAGE CLASS.  It will open your eyes to a whole new world of subtleties you never knew existed. SO worth it as a “Real Life” skill and for all those times when you’re writing and you need your character to react nonverbally.

There is also, in addition to these others, the writer resource book: The Emotion Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi

This is how you show, not tell what your character is feeling.

'Precious Nightmare' WIPs at my work station/studio corner. 

It’s not that I’m not working… It’s just that I haven’t been able to post progress photos on what I’m working on. It’s not even secret stuff IMO. I just don’t have the ability to post progress photos unless I take it from my phone.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOSUKE!
Derp.  Sigh.  I had to get SOMETHING done for him today.  2 hours rushing lineart and color. I might revisit this and fix it eventually.

6/16/2013 WIP update
Finished outlining ‘It’s Time’.  I think my friends will recognize several familiar faces.  I honestly don’t know why I threw them in there…  They’re gunna be grayed out, but I dunno why I used actual characters than just grey blobs to represent people. XD
Backlogged art in the top right almost finished.  It’ll be the art post next week on the comic.
Got a sketch of Yu/Souji molesting Yosuke while he makes pancakes. X3 … and a TINY peek at a HUGE project I’m working on for the next month in the bottom left.
Dangit… I still gotta get tomorrow’s comic done.

artist-confessions:

I’m sorry if it’s not fit here enough but I thought it will. I just had to write it out of my mind… I want to say that never give up because of others. Draw what you love to, and just enjoy it. Such things as this only cause art blocks and sadness. There’s always hope and never too late to continue, I think. I’m doing the same recently. :)
