I start out with circle and then add in guidelines (basically a plus "+" in a circle in the direction the character is facing) So with those guidelines, I base it for eyes, mouth, nose etc. It'll work with enough practice, the plus can go anywhere on the circle and it will guide you in placing features.
oh my gosh, do you animate Dick Figures?? your style just reminds me of it, and I love blue and red aha ; o ; plus I remember seeing those two in some doodles of yours I believe,, aha anyway I love your artwork, ice been watching you since your old account and I fell in love w/ everything about your art<3
Thank you so much for making this! It's funny, earlier today I was fooling around with expressions (they were terrible, of course T^T) so now I'm going to go redo them with your helpful tips in mind~ ^w^ Hopefully they'll be much better this time around.
