The Artist's Complete Guide to Facial Expression

Originally published in 1991, The Artist's Complete Guide to Facial Expression has become the standard reference on the subject of depicting the expressive face.

In a carefully organized, easy-to-use format, author Gary Faigin shows readers the expressions created by individual facial muscles, then draws them together in a section devoted to the six basic human emotions, including sadness, anger, joy, fear, disgust, and surprise. Each emotion is shown in steadily increasing intensity, and Faigin's detailed renderings are supplemented by clear explanatory text, additional sketches, and finished work. An appendix includes yawning, wincing, and other physical reactions.

Understanding the subtleties of facial expression is of great value to a wide variety of professionals, artists and non-artists alike. Enthusiastic users of the Complete Guide include digital animators, cartoonists, portrait artists, forensic artists, puppeteers, actors, and art directors, as well as psychologists and plastic surgeons. This landmark book should be part of the library of anyone who wishes to depict or observe the human face.

Gary Faigin trained at the Art Students League and the Ecole des Beaux Arts de Paris. He has taught at the National Academy School of Design and at Parsons School of Design. Currently, he is the artistic director of the Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, where he lives.
