Divided opinions as to his emotions, is it anguish, is it laughter? One suggestion was frustration.
This was one of the first drawings I’ve done where I’ve deliberately tried to put myself into an emotional state (even if it’s just faking/acting it) whilst drawing to see if I could notice it coming through the brush strokes. When I’d finished I noticed my jaw aching from where I’d unconsciously been clenching my teeth 😬
Not sure how successful it was in expressing emotion but perhaps that suggestion of ‘frustration’ was spot on.
