Design Question - Facial Expressions (Need help from you all)

Has anyone thought about facial expressions for our main character? Do we want it to remain the same throughout, change under certain situations?

Yeah I know Lawal Bayode 😃. I thought someone might have some ideas in their heads and want to share lol.
Elvis Rozario I also need to know from which direction the main light source is coming from? I’m currently imagining top left while I’m creating character sketches. I’ll be drawing a sketch out for import in isometric views now that I have a basic sketch of the character.

hmmm, well I was actually thinking about keeping the light source at the top right corner, but it’s upto you, cause the entire artwork will change according to where we keep the light source, so I think it’ll be best if you (as the designer) decide that.

About the expressions, the sprite will be quite small to actually notice expressions clearly, but it’ll be great if you can give some funky expressions, something like closing an eye or shouting while shooting (just a suggestion).

Here’s some inspiration :p

Thanks Elvis Rozario. Exactly the sort of inspiration I needed 😃 Faces are a funny thing especially drawing them in cartoon style. My workflow is even funnier, I need to draw things by hand in detail first before moving onto digital and simplifying it but that’s just how I work 😃
